It's funny. Less than two weeks after I bought this UPS, Staples sends a review request. Normally, within two weeks, there'd be nothing to say. This time, however, there is. I bought this unit based on past experiences with APC products over the last couple of decades+. Always been a reliable unit, that meets or exceeds its specifications. I live in the Santa Cruz mountains, rather out in the woods. Figured power would be an issue when the weather hits. So, installed this Backups unit. My communications are all dependent on my cable internet modem. So the ups is powering a 32" smart TV, a CFL lamp (11W/23W stand type), my 2TB backup drive, a 5 port gigabit router, a Samsung microcell 'tower' and a Panasonic cordless phone unit. (Laptop has it's own battery...) And a small sound bar. Early this week, wham! All power off for miles. UPS running happily. Turned off TV/monitor and lamp to save juice. Called power Co. Checked outage on smartphone thru wi-fi. Outage lasted over an hour. The Backups ran thru it all, keeping me on line and with telephone. Showed no sign of running low. Always liked APC because of their reliability and that their lightly loaded runtime is so good. Proved it again. Thanks Staples, and thanks, APC! (I'm an electronic technician, working with backup power for 40 years +, among other things. So I've been there.) The unit's right under my feet, doing it's job as I type. Nice to know I'm able to communicate when it goes dark around here.

I buy APC's for the obvious reason, of using them on my computer to prevent spikes, and so I don't lose data if there's a momentary interruption in the power supply. I've lost a lot of stuff from lightning strikes and electrical surges over the years, including a $1000. treadmill. So, hopefully these things will work with the next 'big one' that hits my home.

My partial disgruntlement: it has a gadget for preventing spikes thru the phone wire - which recently cost me a DSL router that wasn't protected on that line. Using the new APC's phone line protector messed up the DSL system, and I could get no signal at all. So I bought a $5. supplemental gadget, plugged it into the APC, and ran the phone wires thru it, and it works fine that way.

I also don't like its alarm system. The lights are small, and whether they're flashing, or beeping or burping and what they're indicating is all a mystery to me because I inevitably lose the instructions sheet over the intervening years that gives the details on such matters. Why can't there be a good sized, well labeled light saying 'battery is dead' and another saying 'surge protection is fried' and the like? Making one little light serve multiple purposes seems awfully stupid.

The batteries are supposedly replaceable too - but they basically cost the same as the entire unit, so why bother.

So, for offering spike protection, I expect it works. For the rest, I'm less than thrilled. It's a so-so product, but I haven't found something better yet.

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

This equipment is easy to install and use. This is a good brand. Eight outlets come in handy. It states they should last about 3 years. I think we have gotten almost 5 out of the units we own.

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

Works now, but you Cant have too many things plugged in On the battery back up side of it. Kept turning off until I changed the printer power supply to the other side. Read a reviews that this isn't able to handle old type of power supplies.

Good compact back-up

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

This APC back-up is compact and easy to hook up. The outlets are really tight, though, not easy to slip plugs in and out. But if you're not planning to do that often, it's reasonably priced and works well.

New APC UPS

By Alan Alberts

Verified Buyer

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

The new APC UPS is much more convenient than my prior unit, which has fewer outlets on the back, while the new unit has 8 outlets on top for easier access. It also takes up less space than the old unit it replaced, all while costing much less.

Works great so far

By kenneth

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

I like the fact that the receptacles are spaced out so that oversized plugs don't intrude on the other receptacles and render them useless. So far, I have not had any problems with this APC unit. The last one I bought failed after 3 years and even after changing out the battery, it failed. Hopefully, this one won't fail me after three years. This one has a nice sleek design and very easy to use and not too big and intrusive so I can hide it behind my entertainment cabinet. Good luck to you if you buy one yourself.
