very happy
Reviewed by Sean. Review Posted 17/01/2008

I'm very pleased with this unit

It works on Linux with the NUT driver version 2.0.4 - no need for the supplied disk.

Powering my desktop and monitor it is reporting 25% load with a predicted runtime on battery of 45minutes!

I'm not quite convinced by that runtime - but it is certainly ample time for a safe system shutdown.

Reviewed by Rich. Review Posted 01/02/2007

In response to Francis, most computer ups do not have uk mains type sockets on them, they have the universal 3 pin sockets for the standard computer power cables, which you might find you have to go out and buy. eg: Quicklinx 3ZMRWS

APC are the best
Reviewed by Mark. Review Posted 06/06/2006

This may not have come with a mains cable - you use the one that your PC has now. The connectors are straight through male/female connectors. Unless the last reviewer had one designed for abroad then you should have no problem. I have bought a number of APC UPS's in the past and they are worth every penny. (You normally get two straight through leads with the UPS - enough for tower and monitor
