I purchased this unit to provide emergency power to give us time to save and close documents on two PCs when power is interrupted. I also wanted reserve power for my cable modem, wireless router and network switches so that we can break out the laptops and keep working when the power goes out.

The construction and power capabilities of this somewhat pricey unit make it a worthy investment. It has an industrial-strength build quality like a classic American product should. The gorgeous OLED? display also offers useful information on the status of the unit that comes in handy. For example, you can keep plugging stuff into it and the display will show you the power draw and reserve power capability--something that you can only guess about with lesser units.

This unit is highly recommended for your emergency power requirements for any of your gear, including Home Theater/AV equipment. Just don't kid yourself into thinking that it will keep everything going for an extended length of time.

Also, keep in mind that the clean power that it provides will extend the life of anything that is plugged into it--especially those that are plugged into the battery-powered outlets. The bottom line is that this UPS is a solid investment.

This unit delivers a digital stepped approximation to a sine wave when providing power using the internal battery. This is fine for older PCs but new PCs have power quality detection circuits that will cause them to shut down when switched to battery backup with this APC. For example, my Dell Studio XPS shuts down at random times with this unit. DO NOT BUY THIS UNTIL you check your PC for compatibility. If you need something that produces clean power, try the Smart UPS.

Comments about APC Back-UPS® XS 1300VA 10-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

I'm giving this a mid-rating only because the one I bought in-store had a battery that was DOA. Having been manufactured in 2011, the battery was fully discharged and could not be recharged. I worked with APC customer care, who replaced this with a similar (though newer) model, which works very well.

For what it's worth, I had the exact same experience with a smaller model bought at a different retailer -- old battery, fully discharged. That one I returned as defective before buying this one from Staples. My takeaway was to check for date of manufacture before buying a UPS.

I use this for my cable-modem phone, external hard drive, and wireless router. I'm only using about 4% load, which gives me a nice 2 hour charge in case of outage.

I do like the display which shows not only load but expected battery life in the event of an outage. It was pretty easy to setup, overall.

On the con side, I wish the outlets were spaced a bit further apart, or even in different orientations, as I could not get all of the plugs I wanted into the "UPS" side.

      Comments about APC Back-UPS® XS 1300VA 10-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

      I now have two of the same units. I use one of them as a backup power supply for my home computer plus the LCD monitor and it gives me over thirty minutes of run time in the event of a power failure. It also offers protection and line conditioning in the event of a power spike or brown out, these happen very often where I live. The second unit is used as a backup power supply for my router and network switch. This is really useful in the event of a power outage because it keep my home network up and running. These items are a no brainer if you live in an area with frequent power outages and brown outs.

        It is unfortunate that PowerChute Software in not Mac compatible as it limits ability to see equipment status and operation, The software is good when used with other APC UPS with PCs.
