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.

great purchase

By ralph

from new jersey

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

Found this product to be easy to install, works well, especially with a generator backup. Old UPS system cancelled my computer while the generator took 12 seconds to come on line when power failed. This UPS System 's batteries take right over with no computer interruption. Good buy, also.

Back-ups cs500

By Harry

from Undisclosed

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

The unit works great; however the Power Chute software that came with it dioes not work very well. This may be a conflict with Windows Vista Service Pack 2. When I try to run a self test, after a minute or so I get this message:"unable to run self teat at this time". Also, when I click on "status" I get wild readings on AC input voltage (8,100,000 or -11,400,000 for example. I just uninstalled the Power Chute software program. The unit operates OK without it.
