    Excellent. Always.

    The solid, dependable products from APC are lifesavers. I would NOT work without them!

    Exceeds my expectations.

    I live in an area with spotty power, so I needed this to keep my setup running for a few minutes to power down when the lights go out. (which is frequently) I'm running three keyboards, a mixer & monitors from the battery backup side, and a laptop from the surge protector panel, and this unit registers a 30% load. That leaves me with around 35-40 minutes of battery run time, much more than I had expected and plenty of time to save a project and power off everything. This unit has also got rid of the annoying ground hum that sometimes happened to plague recordings, and keeps the voltage steady going to the keyboards.

    The switchover from mains power to battery backup is instant, no dropouts or pops & clicks through speakers, and it emits a loud beep a few times to let you know it's on the battery, loud enough to hear when playing through headphones. I can't comment on the included software as it doesn't seem to work on a MacBook, but it's not essential to the running of the unit and all the necessary settings can be controlled from the front panel. As a bonus, the battery was fully charged when it arrived. An essential piece of kit if you have power issues and well worth it for the peace of mind it brings.

    Traditional APC performance

    I;ve been buying APC's from my celebrated SST, Jeff Law for -gulp-decades! They've all worked tremendous. I've still got 20yr old units in service (just keep replacing the lead/acid batteries). Bought this for our churches Rodgers organ, saved its life several times over (we have spotty power here on the island) Just got a new one for our home network system. You can try others, but APC is the industry leader for a reason.

    So far, so good, so what?

    UPS fixed voltage swings and my digital equipment works fine. Quiet, simple.

    Solid Choice

    This piece has had 3 great purposes but what I'm loving is a confidence in a solid back system well I'm working using the recording computer.

    Beyond that it is nice to have controlled/conditioned power so that it's not fluctuating.

    A nice little cool thing is having my computer on the master Outlet in the back so that when I turn my computer on and off all the other pieces plugged into the back turn on and off as well. It's become my main switch!

    Yup! Loving this gear!

    APC Back-UPS BR1500G VA Tower UPS Review

    Great piece of gear for the home studio. Easy to set up and use. It doesn't completely eliminate pops in my speakers when some power switches on the same circuit are turned on, though, but it has improved the problem significantly.

    APC Back-UPS works great

    Everything set up easily and quickly though the enclosed CD was only useful is a PC was used. I have Macs.
    But still the process went smoothly and the Back UPS does great.
