Excellent product

This product is rock solid. We've been using the same units at work for almost 2 years.

This product is rock solid. We've been using the same units at work for almost 2 years.

I just got a few for home use (TVs, computers, etc).

The idea that other reviewers gave negative ratings because it was heavy and only half the ports are battery backup means (A) you've never used a UPS before because to keep things running that take hundreds of watts you HAVE to have a big battery, or (B) you should read the specifications. The box never said 8 ports of battery backup.

Anyway we have 4 around the house and they work great. I actually like the 4 ports only of battery backup. I don't want my lamps and other non-critical devices staying on during a power outage, just the devices like computers that are important to shut down gracefully. The more units using battery power, the less time to react in an outage.

Good product should be in $35 range

Priced too high. Purchased only because it was on sale but still high I think. It appears they have not changed associated PowerChute software application in years so no new development efforts there....Read complete review

Priced too high. Purchased only because it was on sale but still high I think. It appears they have not changed associated PowerChute software application in years so no new development efforts there. No new buttons/feautres on the unit itself either so no new feature/functionality here as well that I can see. You can turn off annoying beeps every 30 seconds via PowerChute software and just have it beep when its low battery. The power is out in your office or home so why in the world (by default settings) do you need to be reminded you have no power by hearing beeping every 30 seconds. Remember it beeps in the middle of the night on a power hit or outage even if your computer is off. Imagine if you have more than one of these in your home and the power goes out. All that beeping every 30 seconds! It is a surge protector with 8 outlets (four with backup power, 4 just surge) basically the same as it has been for years. You would think they should have recouped R&D costs by now, lower the price.

It works as expected

Comments about APC Back-UPS® ES 550VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

Not everything works as expected, but these do. We have a couple of them in the office and they work well. You can find replacement batteries for them when they finally give out. Staples will recycle your old battery, too!

Excellent investment!

Comments about APC Back-UPS® ES 550VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

This item, along with the 350VA 6-outlet UPS, is an excellent investment for your home and office equipment. I have one on each of my business's computers and on each home computer. I even sent one to college with each of my three kids - you never know what kind of electrical outages or brownouts you'll get in college dorms! If you have an extra unused outlet on the battery backup side, plug in a lamp so you'll have a light available when you power goes out - until you can find your flashlight or candles!

APC Back up

Comments about APC Back-UPS® ES 550VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

I purchased this back up because we would have black outs and I would lose data. This battery back up protects the loss of your data. It is a must for businesses. I have it on all my business computers and Point of Sales registers. When we lose electricity, we are still able to perform our sales registers and continue on with our business. In the past we had to turn away business or we would lose sales because we did not have a way to ring up our customers during a black out. I highly recommend this item for all your computers.

Great low cost option

By betsy50

from Syracuse, NY

Comments about APC Back-UPS® ES 550VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

Have five of these installed. Perfect compromise between high end coverage (often over-kill) and cheap surge suppressors. Trust APC, love their trade-in process. Keep up the good work!
