Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for me.I'm using this to back up my network hardware: DSL modem, switches, wifi router, etc. It works great and gives me plenty of run time. I had a power outage the day I plugged it in and set it up. It ran for an hour and a half or so before exhausted (about what I would have guessed for the load). and then shut down (the outtage was more than 24 hours). When the power came back on it came up on its own and everything started back up and the batteries were charged up quickly. I really like the display as it is helpful to see the loading and predicted run time. I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, easy to monitorThis product gives me very nice backup power for a high-end PC and several gaming consoles and I haven't had any issues so far. I ran into some trouble in the past with monitoring the load and battery life on backup devices, and with this model it's very easy to notice these details. The only downside for me is that the fan can be a bit noisy, especially at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, does what it is supposed to doI use this to back up my computer, monitor, router and storage drives at my computer in my cabin. We are prone to power loss in the winter and this gives me plenty of time to safely continue a download and then shut down the system with no loss of data. Happened just this last weekend during a rain storm. No problems. Worth every penny to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, affordable, reliableIf you have computers or other electronic gear that need clean reliable power then this is how you get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again and I will for my other computersThis UPS is great! I have experienced two power outages in two days and this UPS never missed a beat. The Mac was not aware that we lost power so no files or work suffered any harm. Further, I could read the display to know how much time I had left before I would have to shut down. Great machine at a very good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geat ValuePerfect UPS for multiple computers and electronics that need to be up and running in a power failure. Modems, routers, etc. The only unused function of the UPS is the Coax and phone line surge supression. Internet services can't be put thru the surpressor because it reduces the signal to the point of unreliable. This is not a defect, it's the nature of surge supression. I plan on at least a half hour of backup, with the ability to silence the alarm, which gives me time to get generator running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Perfect fit for our needs.We use the SmartPro LCD 120V 50/60Hz 1500VA 900W unit for when we test our generator and we have a few seconds off down time as the switch boxes transfers from utility service to generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Abysmal quality control.The 1st one arrived and emitted a burning smell when on. I tried the backup operation by unplugging it and made a fast clicking sound while the output voltage sagged badly. I got an RMA as DOA, and, after a few days, received a replacement. This one arrived with the case top retaining tabs almost all broken off and lying inside the box. It does, however, work. I am waiting to hear from Tripp Lite as to what they would like to do this time. The packaging is insufficient for the weight of the product. The styrofoam packaging was all broken up on both of them. If they were packed better they MAY survive. Of course, they're made in China. That probably won't change in the near future. I have another of the exact same model I purchased earlier, and it too arrived with the styrofoam smashed. It is undamaged and has been running for over 6 months now.

Really bought this because i'd had 2 HDMI splitter/switches go out over the past 3 years. This gives me slightly cleaner power and presumably better surge protection. Lets hope it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ProductGood UPS for the price. I have consistence voltage drops due too large A/C motors starting up. The AVR really comes in handy. But it too will fluxuate +/- 5v from 120v. However this is still much better than before, I wonder what it would take to maintain a perfect 120v?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth setup and operationI use this for two workstations along with assorted disk arrays. Add in an LCD monitor, LCD TV, and a cable box, and I'm still not above a 35% load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gr8 budget UPSI use this as a backup for my 4-bay 8Tb media server, WiFi router, cable modem, VoIP, and smart switch. Basically, it runs everything connecting my PCs and Home Theater to the internet and each other. I usually buy the other two big guns in the business but the Tripp Lite had so many features and value that I just wanted to give it a shot. This is a big unit with more outlets than I need and more reserve too. The Smart feature is not used since there is nothing attached that could use it so I cannot say anything about its function. But I can say this is a rock solid unit, equally as good as my S20BLK at a considerable savings. So if your needs are modest as mine were you may want to give this unit an audition. It's a keeper in my system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this.I live in Alaska. Where I'm out I have really bad brown power. The avr feature is the main reason I chose this product. I have had multiple power fluctuations that before would have shutdown my computer, now I just continue to work right through them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, easy-to-follow instructionsI own other, smaller TrippLite models, but not a tower and not with replaceable batteries (albeit I would need someone else to do the replacing). For a sewing area (with a small computer), I wanted a UPS unit that I could easily turn off and on as needed. All devices need to be disconnected from the UPS outlets, but then I can simply press the front on/off button. The instructional brochure has clear diagrams of the display modes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy SetupI am using the TrippLite UPS in my home office. The setup was easy and the directions were clear. In addition to my Network server, the house thermostat is on the modem WiFi. That way when we are gone, I can still log in to check on house temps and determine if I need to call a repairman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd TRIPP•LITE I Have PurchasedThis is the 3rd TRIP•LITE that I have purchased in the last two years. I am replacing all of my UPS protection in my home on computers, entertainment setups and yes our new Pellet Stove. Must people don't think about a Pellet Stove, but when the power goes out, you need to allow the blowers on the stove to run at least 10 to 15 minutes after you shut down the stove. If not, you can fill a room or house with smoke that should be going out the chimney. No TRIP•LITE, say hello to your smoke detectors, possible smoke damage and the local fire department!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and reliableI have been using several brands and units through the last fifteen years at my home as well as my business place. Situated in an area where frequent natural lightning, local browning or plain lack of electricity at the most unexpected time forced me to invested in those extra units. Where I'm using this unit for, this is the third unit I'm installing in 7 years. I had other brands before this Tripp Lite. They died too early to my taste. I've been using Tripp Lite units in the four years at other stations and they survive better the frequent outage in my area. Today I opted again for this specific unit to keep my office networking devices on when we expect them to be on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1990's home office in 2016I've had personal computers in my business since 1991 and have been a Tripp Lite customer for just as long. I haven't had a UPS in my home office since about 2000, so when I purchased this one I was thinking about the old desk side tower and huge CRT monitor, modem, etc. I had back then. Now that I use a notebook and LCD monitors, there is no load on the UPS. I now have a 4TB desktop NAS, wireless router, broadband modem, tiny workstation plugged into the UPS. Still showing "No Load". I'm going to pull the plug from the wall to test. since the software installed on the workstation says 180 minutes remaining.

I liked the 1st one I bought for my gaming rig, I decided to buy the exact same one to replace an old failing UPS I had my wife's computer on. The only thing i don't like about it is Tripp Lite no longer sends out monitoring software with them. I liked being able to monitor and test my UPS from my PC. Yes, this unit has the LED display on it but it sits on the floor, behind some furniture and I am old and don't want to crawl down on the floor, move the furniture to check it's health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IndispensableWork from a home office in Florida where outages and violent thunderstorms are a regular event. The SmartPro works exactly as it should - when the power goes off, it kicks in and I can carry on working for a short time or close down without losing any work. Also like the fact that it can be muted during lengthy outages, especially at night. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SmartPro gives me Peace of MindMy current purchase of the SmartPro LCD 120V 1500VA 900W Line-Interactive UPS AVR Tower LCD USB 10 Outlets is also my third purchase. The first I bought in August, 2013, the second in August, 2014. Both the older units are all still in service, no battery replacements, no disappointments, and no trouble. We have had at least one tropical storm, one lightning strike that cooked the power supply for my HVAC, and more than one power outage of over an hour because we live in a neighborhood with aging utility infrastructure. The units replaced various other lesser units that lasted three or four years and needed batteries, or just plain died. These have screens that allow me to read their health and (presumably) anticipate battery and function problems. I added the most recent unit to protect my home theater electronics. Each power fluctuation, flicker, or plain old outage, takes my whole system down. Sometimes everything figures out what it needs to do, but sometimes not. That requires me to spend time remembering and helping all the gadgets to renew their handshake. That isn't much fun. Enter the Tripp-lite SmartPro. I also know that my delicate electronics will last longer because of the steady stream of dressed and clean power. No spikes, brownouts, etc. I have always relied on Tripp-Lite for quality electrical solutions. This product extends the legend for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a MUST HAVE in my area!I live in the mountains and our power company is not very reliable. We have a lot of power surges and sags. If you have a very valuable Home Theater system like mine. You need this protection. I had another UPS system, it was also a Tripplite product. It performed very well and lasted for many years. Unfortunalty the battery went bad and it was unreplaceable. If you buy a UPS for your home theater or computer get a Tripplite, and get one you can order and replace the batteries yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS, Stylish and ReliableI purchased this a couple months ago and have no complaints. I like the display and have important PC, Switch and Server equipment plugged in. It has bleeped once or twice when a surge or millisecond outage occurred. I usually buy APC but I found their batteries seem to die pretty quickly, regardless of overall load and usage around the home. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is because I have not yet experienced running anything on the Tripp Lite battery alone (no power cuts, thankfully, although I have used the "Test" button twice, which checks the battery-only supply for 10 seconds). I promise to UPDATE the review if I think it will help your decision to buy one for your needs. Another techie friend of mine also recommended this brand or APC, so I don't have buyer's remorse. It's very simple to unpack and install and has a USB interface if you want to monitor its features from your desktop. For me, the display alone is enough reassurance. I recommend this for anyone who has a small office running critical hardware, or for a family entertainment center. Just be mindful of the technical loads/ratings you need. Watch also for TVs and PC Monitors, as these will suck the battery dry in minutes, no matter the brand or battery size. Overall, it is therefore a great backup for shutting things down gracefully and for coping with spikes and surges here in Florida (a frequent occurrence). Well worth the money I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS everything I need and moreThis is a great UPS, with more than enough power to keep a desktop, laptop, cable modem, laser printer and even my tv & cable box up and running and I'm still only at about 50% load. Also the digital readout on the front of the unit makes it very easy to see the load on the UPS and you can clearly see how dirty your power is with the readout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wellSo far the Tripplite unit is doing its job. Has many more monitoring features than the 2 competitor's UPS units I owned before. Both failed prematurely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, no problems. I like it.The only problem I had was the computer didn't properly recognize it when I plugged in the USB cord. I searched Tripp-Lite's site for drivers and couldn't find any. It turned out that they weren't needed, but it would have been nice to know that. There's almost no information about installing the product. It showed up in Device Manager but showed a problem as if it needed a driver. I wound up unplugging the USB cable and plugging it in again and the problem went away, so I'm guessing it was just a bad connection. However, a little more install instructions from Tripp-Lite would have solved the headache. It would have been nice to know that a driver wasn't needed. I would then have looked elsewhere for the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noisy fanI bought two of these units to power and protect my TV, stereo unit, set top box and DVR whilst the second one powers and protects my security cameras and NVR unit. I am disappointed that the cooling fans are so noisy when the AVR is operating. Our power supply is quiet ordinary with the input voltage always around 130 or even a little higher. Hence tha cooling fan operating most of the time. The unit itself I am happy with with both the protection side and backup power. I had read reviews on other units and this one was suppose to be the quietist when running. If you can put up with the noise then I would recommend buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardware OK at bestI purchased 5 of these for my company. One came out of the box with the casing not properly installed. Tripp-Lite's Power Alert Software is a joke. It looks like something written in the 1970s. Out of 5 computers in works on one and not on the other four. Product service is useless. The power button is very poorly designed. It protrudes from the case and is right where your hand would normally go if you wanted to pick it up. Also if ANYTHING brushes against it, (foot, leg, vacuum, it turns the power off to the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit, long run timeI bought two units. One I use with several devices on the battery backup. * a rather hefty desktop computer * two screens * a printer * a nine watt LED lamp (in case of power failure at night) I loaded up a game that uses quite a lot of computer horsepower. The front panel LCD display on the UPS showed about 200W. I then unplugged it from the wall outlet. The UPS switched to battery backup without a glitch. The LCD display showed 30 minutes run-time -- plenty of time to finish up what ever and shut down. The second UPS is used for my network with two devices on the battery backup. * a cable modem * a wireless router With these devices, the LCD display shows no load. With the UPS unplugged, the LCD display shows 180 minutes of run-time. The only down-side, and the reason that it got 4 stars instead of 5, is the noise of the fan when it goes on battery backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid unitMy previous (other brand) UPS had failed a month ago and I had been dragging my feet to order a replacement. After my new home server was shut down twice in a week due to storms I decided to move on a new one. I spent some time looking at all of the new options on the market and decided to try the SMART1500LCDT. This was mt first experience with Tripp-Lite and so far I'm impressed. The unit is solid and the software utility is very good for those of us that like to monitor our power situation. The logging features can give me a look at the power faults that the server has run through without a hitch. This information gives you a good understanding of the return on investment that power issues cause in lost data and hardware issues. I will buy another for my other systems.

Hopefully never.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit, EXCEPT for a Continuously Running Noisy Fan :-/My new SMART1500LCDT is a very solid UPS. The only gripe I have is that during the heat of the summer, the power company typically lowers the voltage to it's customers. Unfortunately, this unit is set to run it's fan on HIGH whenever the voltage drops below 110 Volts (which for me is all day & evening long until about 11:30pm). The unit does not get warm, nor does it seem to be exhausting warm air while the AVR is in Boost mode, so the highest speed of the fan is unnecessary and annoying. A better approach would be to have the fan's speed determined by the UPS's internal temperature, not the input voltage from the power company! I am debating whether or not to return this unit because the noise is pretty unacceptable (and unnecessary) in a home office environment. I wish this problem was fixable via software configuration and or a firmware update! I think the fan will also need to be replaced prematurely because of this, plus the unit will also draw in unnecessary dirt faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid backup deviceWe recently moved to a more rural area that immediately stuck us with some fall brown-outs. I had never had a battery backup solution in place because we used to be in a skyrise building in downtown Minneapolis, that had generator backup power. We had never had a power failure. Now that we're in a suburban neighborhood, thunderstorms and winter storms have quickly made it clear that my equipment was at risk, so I started the hunt for a UPS. The budget was limited - I needed a good product at consumer pricing. The Tripplite, Smart Pro came just in time. The day after I hooked it up we experienced a major outage. It kicked in and did its job as expected. the power was out longer than the battery, so it gave me time to simply shut everything down normally. The unit is plug and play, no software to configure. So far, no complaints and I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and compact, with great displayI bought this unit to replace some smaller Tripp-Lite boxes that had served me well for more than five years. The display is bright, clean and easy to read at a distance. Also, the UPS has a relatively small footprint, considering that it's capable of powering two monitors, a desktop PC and some smaller desktop appliances for long enough to ride out most outages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job and at a great price.I hooked up our internet receiver, modem and security camera before heading away. Power outage was detected by our security system and lasted for three hours. Internet functionality never stalled and accessing the security camera online was as normal. Very please with the purchase. The only caveat I have is that I have not had this unit for very long, so durability has not been proven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best UPS I have hadForm factor 10/10. User replaceable batteries 10/10. Number of outlets (5 backup and surge/5 surge only) 10/10. Information screen 10/10. You can also download user interface software and hook up to a computer for additional management options. I chose not to do it because it just seemed redundant to the UPS hardware screen itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a UPS that WorksThe last other brand UPS took out my power supply and luckily not my entire computer. It was not actually trying to supply power(power outage) but just blew up. I will never trust that well known brand again. I had two old refurbished energex ups that worked great but after 15 years and several battery replacements finally died. I was happy and would have replaced them with new ones but the cost was too high for my needs. Tripp-lite filled the bill with good cost and robust protection. So far through at least a half a dozen power outages they have works flawlessly. I now have two. one for my two computers plus 15TB NAS and HTPC in the living room. Very happy with both. Now over two years in and no problems. My belief is you should install them and never have to look again. Tripp-lite meets this criteria. Good product. This is not meant to address the many different topologies or the various needs and requirements a UPS can supply but simply a testimony to my needs and satisfaction. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First and LAST Tripp Lite!My first and last Tripp Lite product. I purchased this to replace another brand of UPS because of the lower cost. Unpacked and plugged it up to find that it was bad. .. Alarming overload with nothing plugged into it. Now Tripp Lite is giving me the runaround about replacing it or giving me a refund. I'M DONE WITH TRIPP LITE!!! Once again you may paid a little more for quality but it pays off in the longrun. I will return to purchasing APC products, they will stand behind their products without problems such as this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply WorksI ordered 2 of these for the business computers in the house. Arrived super fast and set up was easy. They came almost charged, and I haven't had a single issue with them. I don't even realize they are here until the power goes out, and the computers keep on going. Great product at a great price. I would buy them again, and may just buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripp•Lite continues to impressI purchased this unit for my home office to replace an aging competitor's 750VA unit. The SmartPro was put to the test within the first week when my area experienced a 40 minute power outage. The SmartPro took over instantly and continued to power my connected devices the entire 40 minutes. I couldn't ask for more. A word about the odor some reviewers have complained about - yes the unit did produce a noticeable odor after putting into service, but after about two weeks it is now barely noticeable. The smaller competitor's unit had a similar smell all those years ago, but it fades and you forget about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good DealJust received the unit two weeks ago. Installation was easy, the display is a nice feature. Purchased this as a backup to my server. Based on the outward appearance i wondered if it was an older model, but the rep at CDW assured me it was a current one. Will updated if there are any issues, but so far a great deal for a smart ups of this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine for my needsI have two computers connected to the UPS to keep them from going down when we have short power outages. So far, It has worked fine. The load is about 600 watts and all I want is to keep them up long enough for me to shut them down gracefully. I could not get the automatic shutdown system working on my windows 10 PC and it is not supported on my MAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb piece of equipmentThis is a superb piece of equipment at a good price. It is easy to implement. It is quite heavy and does take up significant space. Supplied wires could be longer to accommodate placement. On a rack or on the floor, distance to power and to equipment matters. I give it top ratings nonetheless. Then again, I am yet to suffer my first lengthy power failure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old school UPS... I expected more.I have purchased multiple similar UPS units over the last 20 years or so. They seem to last 2 or 3 years or so at best. Usually after I replace the batteries in the 1-2 year time frame, the electronics fail within a year or so of battery replacement. My last device failed about 5 years ago and I held off replacing it waiting (and hoping) for a new, improved technology that would have more features and last longer. After installing this UPS I realized that it has the same "look and feel" as the older units, but I was encouraged to find that there was software available at no charge from Tripplite that provided monitoring and control capabilities. After installation my enthusiasm tanked; the software is buggy and confusing and the support information on their web site is very limited. I configured the software so that it would shut down the server when the remaining UPS capacity was down to 50% after a power failure. I then tested the configuration and found that even when the remaining power was reduced to 40%, it still did not shut down the server despite having the USB cable connected between the UPS and the server. When I have time, I'll go back and work on this issue again, but I expected the basic functionally to be very 'plug 'n play'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good!I bought it to backup my console and tv. It does the job very well. I like that it's able to display different readings. Battery life is good. It'll last about 40 to 50 minutes running those loads (approx. 120W). My one complaint is the estimate time remaining. It could be improved. The time reading fluctuates +- 5 minutes and once it actually ran for more than 20 minutes with a reading of 0 minutes before the warning sounds came on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look No FurtherLook no further. This is a SUPER HIGH QUALITY product that you CAN TRUST!. Do not be fooled by cheaper inferior products. They have been in business for about 95 years. Don't choose a marginal UPS that will let you down and cause you to loose your Operating System or data. I have been an electronics engineer since 1978 and concurrently in IT. If it's worth while to look into getting a UPS., it's important enough to get a QUALITY product. Nough Said! - kilocycle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One mean powerful and necessary piece of equipment.Although most users of UPS systems use their power back ups for computers, I use mine as well to protect and supply power to my DVR and cameras for my security system. The DVR used to require to be rebooted manually if the power died and that happened once while I was away from home for a few weeks. With the few power failures I have had since I installed this UPS, I haven't had an issue and it has given me piece of mind now on my extended trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product in my opinionAfter having several other brands of ups that failed just after the warranty expired I decided to try a triplite. What a difference! This unit is the best I've seen. I like the fact that I can see how much of a load it has and how I don't lose any data due to power outages. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took direct ESDI purchased one of these to replace a smaller unit and was impressed with the function during its first power loss, Since then I purchased another for a different room in house. One week later my home had a direct lighting strike, I lost majority of my electronics that were on other UPS setups. The only equipment loss on the two LCD 1500VA was the equipment connected to the Ethernet cable which was connected through the RJ45 ports on UPS. The claims department has been great so far with a quick response and replacements shipped out within a couple of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent UPS for small officeI got this UPS for my office as I have 2 laptops and 4 PCs running for software testing. I needed a UPS that would provide both filtered AC power along with short term battery backup for those power glitches. The SMART 1500 LCDT fits my needs perfectly. The UPS kept my 4 PCs powered long enough (~5 minutes) to allow me to stop the running tests and power down the PCs without losing any data during a resent power outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in Class!!I have an old power hungry Intel Core i7 2700k, with a MSI nVidia GTX 970, 5 HDDs, a small NAS, a Netgear cable modem and a 40 inch 4k Samsung TV as monitor, this beast of a battery was able to hold about 15 mins while I kept gaming waiting for the power to come back. Eventually I realized it was going to take a while for the power to come back on quit the game and shutdown the PC. IMO the best UPS in its class! Have used other makes before

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. No problems.....NiceThis UPS has all desired features and functions at an excellent price. Worked first time out of box. The test pushbutton provides piece of mind. I did not install the watchdog software because I am a little skeptical of conflicts between the auto-save function and other programs or setting. The watchdog software should also include a scheduled auto-self-test for the UPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ProductThe SmartPro LCD 1500VA with the easy to read front display is an excellent product. Received just in time because of stormy weather causing power outages. The unit carried the computers and associated equipment until generator started. Have used other UPS's, but like this the best. (there was a odor when first started, about a week, until unit burned in, no odor now. If used in small or closed in area, it would be advisable to start unit in another area for 7 to 10 days) Other than burn in odor, unit has been flawless, and would recommend highly!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this product to anyone.This unit protects my desktop computer and printer. I experience one instance that it did just that. Instead of my computer and printer being zapped by what appeared to be an electric spike, the Tripp Lite tripped the room circuit breaker rather than damaging my PC and printer. Since the computer and printer stayed on I didn't lose any data nor have any damage done to them. The only negative would be that it's not easily moved because of the weight and does take up more room than a smaller less powerful unit. A small price to pay for a good product.
