Excellent product

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). Read complete review

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.

    APC is known for their quality and this one doesn't disappoint. I almost never get blackouts in my area, but I decided to buy it just in case. Better safe than sorry. Plus I got an awesome deal on Staples, couldn't pass it up.

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

      I have been purchasing this item from Staples for ten years now and I have NEVER had a problem with them. They are reliable and efficiant and I will continue to purchase this item because they are so reliable. One of the best in the market and staples has great price and allow you to your coupon savings when purchasing! Can't say enough about the backup power, if you have a computer you had better have the back up power to save your information in your PC. If you dont save your documents often this power back up would save your files from being lost forever.

        as with all battery backups do not fill up the back up receptacles with big items like computer towers. limit it to one tower, one monitor and then small items like calculators etc. Years of reliable serivce.
