|The CyberPower CP550SLG Standby uninterruptible power supply (UPS) safeguards home/office computers and other electronics (monitors, scanners, speakers, CD/DVD players, MP3 players and phones) from surges, spikes, sags, brownouts and other power abnormalities. Its composite integrated circuitry offers advanced lightning protection.
Patented GreenPower UPS™ technology used in the CP550SLG reduces energy-usage and cooling costs associated with UPS power protection. As a result, you can expect to save up to $9 annually (varies based on usage and regional kilowatt per hour costs) by using GreenPower UPS technology.
The CP550SLG includes PowerPanel Personal Edition UPS management software which monitors the vitals of the UPS and will safely shutdown your system in case of a power outage.
This rugged unit is equipped with a RJ11 port which protects against surges from phone or network disruptions. The small footprint design is ideal for horizontal or vertical placement, and is even wall mountable.
Great value, works great and is not as heavy as UPS of the past.
This UPS is great. I was going to buy a UPS from a local computer store, but a UPS at the same price had 2 less outlets and 200 less watt capacity. The management software is incredibly small, so it doesn't hog system resources on my netbook. I got this to protect my NAS after a power outage fried my desktop. The power turned on/off 4 times. If I would have had this my computer would still be with me today. This UPS is quiet, compact, plenty of room for transformers, long power cable, and easy to use.
Small, smart and inexpensive6/5/2013
This unit is just right for my PC. It doesn't have a lot of run time, but that is OK for the brief but frequent outages we get. And it hooks to the PC with a USB cable, and the download software has a great display of the UPS status and it will shut down the PC when the battery gets low.

Purchased this unit to replace a Belkin that served me well for several years until it took a power hit, but could not find another Belkin. After just 4 months I have to return this CyberPower unit to the manufacturer for repair as the power switch and battery back up have failed. Fortunately, there is a 3-year warranty from the manufacturer.
This is a great product I own three of these and they work great power goes out and back-up kicks in I use this on my electronics i would recommend this product to friends. If you don't own one get one
Works well but off-gasses11/24/2010
I liked the idea of a Green UPS that doesn't waste power in the storing of energy but the off-gassing smell was pretty awful. I like the smell of new electronics but this was an sweet acrid smell of heated plastic that made my nose feel like it would bleed if I kept breathing it. I kept the ceiling fan on in my office to disperse it and after a week it's much better but still noticeable with the fan off. I am hoping that this will go away completely as it is quite unpleasant. Otherwise the device seems to work well.
I've been buying these for years for office pc's. They give plenty of time for a controlled shutdown during power outages.
owned for 5 years and it's still good6/30/2010
The version I bought that looked very much like this worked for 5 years and is connected via USB and works simply and reliably. I'm buying another unit for wireless router and cable modem. It far exceeds the life expectancy I've seen with APC units in Florida.
Great protection, great price5/18/2010
Our lights flicker a handful of times during the summer months. At this price, you can't afford not to get this over a standard surge protector. I ordered 5 of these for the office after similar success with Cyberpower's larger units. I ordered them Monday afternoon w/ the free 7-10 budget shipping and received them the NEXT DAY!
