Performance

Easy to install; software installation works well on Windows 2000 and XP; protection works as advertised; PC shuts down if power failure persists. Have not yet tried it on Linux machines. APC units that I've used in the past (e.g. 650) typically last about 3 years (the batteries do wear out).

-Tom quote

It works well... I was expecting the power strip and battery to get hot after about 5 hours of being plugged in. I have currently been using one of these APC miracles for about 47 hours and there are zero problems.
