I purchased this UPS in 2008 for my main computer system, it has worked flawlessly ever since. I now use it as the main UPS in my home entertainment system; providing power to a 58" plasma, a massive Dolby 7.2 receiver and my PS3. I don't worry about power outages or fluctuations at all with my equipment connected to this unit. Highly recommended.
worked great for the first year. later on started getting random restarts... after plugging my puter into the wall, never did anymore... but too late, messed up my Corsair TX850 and asus MB... but its ok because i needed a reason to upgrade. but i personally will never buy another Opti-UPS....

Owned it for about a year now I think... maybe longer, I kinda forget it's there. I like the monitoring software although it does have a minimalist contractor feel to it. I like the way it shows that we're lucky to get 108 volts out of the wall around here in the summer. The UPS bumps it right up to 116v without using the battery, very nice design. I recently checked the batteries and they were fine, but I noticed that I can get drop in replacements for them at reasonable cost, so it appears I might be using this UPS for a very long time.
very happy with this purchase from NCIX! it lasted more than 1 hour with 1 workstation and a 17 LCD before the battery started to get low. One side note is to use their more user friendly Sentinel software downloaded from opti-ups.com.
I bought this UPS to serve as a powersource for a standalone digital display and printer for a large truck scale. Works great. Should provide 8-12 hours of backup in the event of a power outage.
Getting a UPS is the very best and most effective way to prevent your data from pulling a disapperaing act. However, do not just run out and get any UPS. You want to get a great one that will regulate the power without having to hit the battery every tim the voltage takes a dip which greatly improves battery longevity. They also include options to hook the power supply up to your computer via a serial or USB port so you can monitor what the power is doing. This gives the option to allow for a self shut-down if the power goes out and you are away from your desk. I have this UPS, and it works pretty good and which is also an excellent brand. In fact, (other than this one I recently purchased it) I have another Opti that is 6 years old and still works fine, although the batteries now have no life to them. (That's to be expected. Rechargeable batteries only last so long). It is far better to spend around $100 now on some preventative maintenance than having to spend much more later on data recovery.
Does like it should do. I tested it after charging at 100% and it was draining very slowly at 15% capacity. I didn't like Xtreme version because it doesn't show the level of the battery. I e-mailed them and they recommend Sentinal, it was perfect! Took me awhile to understand how to use the settings, but it was all good.
Well, I bought this UPS mainly because of the great special price at NCIX. It is a nice unit and very easy to setup. I don't regret buying it and I will certainly be glad to have it when there's a blackout in my area.
