      APC Back-UPS® CS 500VA 6-Outlet UPS

      By Karen

      from Epping, NH

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      This APC Back-UPS CS 500VA with 6 Outlets was so easy to install. My husband and I followed the instructions that walked you through each step. We are confident that the electrical surges in the woods of New Hampshire will not plague us any further! Thank you APC for another great product. With this particular model, when the battery has come to its end, you can easily replace the battery...not necessary to purchase a brand new piece of equipment. Another great feature. This is our second purchase from APC as they are extremely reliable.

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      We buy APC products for their reliability. However they have changed from using right angle plug to straight plugs. Now I have more trouble with bad connections at the outlet than power failures because it is too easy to accidentally knock the plug out.

      UPS

      By john b

      from Vermont

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      APC UPS units are very reliable, work 100% of the time for us. I prefer to buy the units with the outlets on the back. The UPS's that have the plugs on top have had debris including spent staples fall into the outlets. My only gripe is that APC no longer uses right angle plugs on the power cord. In a busy environment like ours it is common to find the plugs on the UPS hanging half out of the wall outlet resulting in a poor connection. The older style right angle plugs never came loose.

      Once again, this product is just what I need! Replacing the old one was simple, and the fact that I could recycle the old one so easily was wonderful! Thank you!

      excellent workhorse

      By lobster traps

      from Mid-Coast Maine

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      We have 14 of these backups, one on each workstation at our business. We've tried other backups over the years, but these are the ones that last the longest. And it's relatively easy to replace the batteries.

      Excellent UPS

      By Bernie

      from Nebraska

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      This is a nice compact unit. I like having the outlets on the back of the unit. One of my UPS units has the outlets on the top and they get dusty. I will replace it with one of these when the battery fails.

      Good fat purchase

      By Robby

      from Los Angeles

      Comments about APC® Back-UPS CS500 for Desktop 386, 486, and Pentium Systems:

      The backup power and surge protector came quickly and appears to work well. Only problem is that the plug receptacles on the back are a bit too close together so that plugs with transformers attached to the plug don't fit well and required some moving of plugs around in order to be able to plug the bulkier plugs into the surge protector.
