Smart more intelligent access to plug-in then most UPS's
Very energy efficient, barely gets warm to the touch unlike some older/previousluy used Back-UPS.
LCD Screen is better then last rev/version, could be bigger and in color... a touch interface would be great. HP is using on their inexpensive ink-jet printers, imagine APC can figure out how to use the same components cost effectively, too! Over-all, nice improvement over previous gen. (highly recommend)

For the first time APC is a big let down with this model.
1. Fins in the battery compartment that also allow for air circulation are too thin and have snapped off and have gotten into the unit. I can hear bits of plastic move around inside when handling the unit. There were also little round pieces that came out of the battery compartment when I turned over the battery.
2. PowerChute 3.0 has issues with Windows UAC (User Account Control). Every time you boot your computer you have to allow/disallow PowerChute to run. (This is a known issue and a fix is being worked on - from talking to tech. support). Download an earlier version to get around this issue (version 2.X).
3. Using the coax data line protection on this model increased my "Upstream Power Level" by 2 more dBmV's (55 dBmV vs. 53 dBmV) than my last APC UPS (APC BACK-UPS RS 1300VA LCD) .
4. Plugging my printer (HP Inkjet) into the green "Controlled Outlet" upon turning on the computer or waking it, my printer turns on also...then turns off (just a weird observation).
5. Instructions could be better.

        I use APC units in all sizes and for a smaller office. For the purposes I use this connected to a small phone system, my Internet connection and 'core' site networking devices.

        Oh Rats the Power Went Out

        By Louis

        from Portland, OR

        Comments about APC Back-UPS® XS 1500VA 10-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

        The power at our office is not very reliable. It drops frequently for brief periods and occasionally (two or three times a year) longer than 30-minutes or more.

        A few times the hard drive was affected and we had to reload the operating system. The first time we had not backed up for while and had to recreate a significant amount of data (I know, not too bright).

        We purchased a 1,500 Watt APC UPS recently and lost power for about 30-seconds two days later. The UPS maintained power to the computer, monitor, and Internet Modem.

        We were downloading a data file from a vendor and about to stop and power down the computer when the utility power restored. As far as we could tell the computer didn't know the difference between the two power sources. We are very pleased with being protected now.

        The APC UPS documentation is easy to understand, the unit is very full featured, a snap to hook up, and appears to be well built. I like how the battery connects as, when necessary, it is user replaceable.

        We will adding another computer soon and an APC UPS will be part of the package.

        We looked at multiple brands and APC seemed to be the best choice (the price was higher than other brands, but I believe it was a better value). Staples had it on sale too!

        I am not connected with APC, but the survey question below is flawed and does not have an option to say no and wont allow submission without making a choice for the question. :o(

        Works well

        Though I have not had a power failure yet, this seems to work well. It is very quiet, and much lighter and smaller than the overly-large box would have you think. I am just hoping that when the time comes to replace the batteries Batteries Plus will have what is needed. I'm trusting they will. With ten total outlets, this replaces two power strips

        This UPS is a workhorse. I ave bought many of these over the past couple of years to protect instruments in the laboratory.
