The CyberPower Systems CP1500AVRLCD UPS, designed for mid to high-end computer systems, features dynamic line conditioning and a LCD diagnostic display. Real-time system vitals can be viewed from this display and the unit can be conveniently mounted in a workstation cabinet or directly on the desktop. The CP1500AVRLCD also guards against surges/spikes, and also offers battery backup in the event of brownouts or total power loss. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) ensures that all your electronics are receiving clean power and stabilizes the voltage to a nominal 120VAC. PowerPanel PE (TM) Management Software automatically saves and closes open files and then shuts down the computer system in an intelligent and orderly manner.
Crystal Blue LCD Diagnostic Display: The innovative front panel LCD can be used to display detailed information on the UPS status and current power conditions. The LCD displays 11 different diagnostics: Input voltage level, Output voltage level, Automatic voltage regulator, Runtime estimate, Load level, Power frequency, On battery, Overload, Fault, Battery capacity, and Silent mode
Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR): Incoming AC power is electronically regulated for dips and spikes AVR takes this irregular AC power and converts it into a consistent Sinewave so sensitive electronic equipment can achieve its optimal performance
EMI/RFI: Provides shielding against electromagnetic interference & radio frequency signals. Most commonly, this is used to prevent line noise or humming that occurs over telephone lines or stereo electronics
Transformer-spaced Outlets: Widely spaced outlets allow you to conveniently add large transformer-based plugs without compromising the utility of other outlets
USB Connectivity: Plug-N-Play software and convenient USB ports allow for quick and easy installation
PowerPanel PE Smart Management Software: In event of a power outage, PowerPanel PE will not only save your open files and will also Hibernate your PC to increase the run-time on the UPS unit. PowerPanel is quickly and easily installed on any Windows-based PC and is designed to utilize minimal system resources. Diagnostic screens give immediate visuals of the UPS status, and also include the following features: Silent operation mode, configurable system notifications, automatic self tests, adjustable high/low voltage warnings, event/data logging, and scheduled shutdowns
LED Indicators: LED status lights indicate Power-On and wiring faults
Audible Alarms: Audible tones identify when the unit is running off battery power, unit overloads and low battery
Resettable Circuit Breaker: Convenient unit reset switch in case of an overload

Overall I am very happy with this purchase. The minor issues are in no way significant enough to go anywhere else for a 900W UPS. This does the job and if you get it on sale it's a great deal. Recommended.
I've been keeping an eye out for a good UPS for a while, but since this is for a home PC, I wasn't interested in breaking the bank over it. When I saw this on sale for $140, I went for it! It was a simple setup (I didn't bother with CyberPower's software as Win7 recognized a battery backup right away). A simple power plan modification to include battery power, and that was it! The LCD provides useful info as well.
My system draws about 150-600W, depending on the load, which should provide me with 7 (at ~600W) to 40 minutes (at ~150W) of battery power. Enough time for me to stop and save any important data, and safely shut down my computer.
I have been using this for 8 months with my windows 2012 storage spaces server with a dozen hard drives, I have had a few short power failures and it was able to keep everything running smoothly.
I personally prefer APC, but I don't like the power off switch on them... This is a well built sturdy unit, I own the 1350VA model too, had it for a couple years now, still going strong, but my PCs power supply was packing it in, started pulling 900watts, started screaming, so I bought a new PSU and bigger UPS... now it pulls 500Watts playing crisis 3.. go figure... lol I would only buy an APC or CyberPower, have tried others and was sadly disappointed...
Okay, first I just want to say that the UPS does work properly for now. The LCD works great. I like that it isn't on all the time. The software works fine too. It hibernates the computer instead of shutting it down automatically, but I can live with that as I won't be losing power every other day here anyway.
Now, on to the bad stuff. The shipping box was really banged up. I mean REALLY banged up. If I could attach a picture here, I would. It looked like it was thrown around, smashed with a car a few times and then dropped into my hands. I had the UPS guy note it down in case the unit worked. Quite a bit of the styrofoam packaging was broken on the inside of the box. And there was a laptop power adapter packaged in the box with it!! This clearly shows how much attention cyberpower is paying to packaging. Unless this was an NCIX mistake... perhaps it was a floor model that was repackaged and the guy packaging it threw in this odd power adapter that does not belong by mistake... I don't know. There is no point RMA'ing the unit though because it does work great. I even tested it out on battery power and it worked very well. I had the software set to shut down the computer after 5 minutes of running on battery and it did. I have a high power consuming rig here with 2 x GTX 280 in SLI and the UPS handled it just fine.
Overall this UPS does what it is supposed to do. For some reason we have a lot of power outages at our new house. The interface is very user friendly and easy to set up. If you want to protect your hardware this is definitely a good investment. Just wish the battery lasted a bit longer when the computer is actually in use.
