Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far I gave it 4 stars because my power has not gone out so I haven’t been able to test its effectiveness during power outages yet. But so far I like the unit. We specify UPS’s at work and use this same brand for industrial cabinets, the biggest reason why I chose this particular unit for my home office. I like the unit, it has plenty of outlets but doesn’t take up a lot of room. And I appreciate the power button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought 2 of these! I purchased one for my son's college dorm room, then bought another for myself. So it is a nice size for an UPS, but bigger and heavier than a power strip, but you ge tthe added protection. I have mine next to my couch in the living room, where everyone seems to gravitate working on their computer or plugging in their ipads an/or phones. We do not have super clean power here and I wanted something that gave a good deal of protection. This answered the mail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent until the battery dies. This had about a 5 year useful life - which is excellent. But without a replaceable battery, it becomes a boat anchor. APC said there was no way to bypass the battery alarm and use it strictly as a surge protector. Demands proper recycling. Buy a model that supports replacement batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery is not user replaceable I owned a few APC UPS backups and was always able to replace the batteries myself. You can't do that with this model. I regret that I missed this important point. I did register it right away and hopefully if the battery dies prematurely, I'll Geta replacement by sending it out for repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last I bought this unit in December 2018. The power was rarely (if ever) out over the past two years but last week the unit began beeping constantly - flashing between red and green. When I looked up what was wrong, APC says the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. Better yet, the end user can't replace the battery. Terrible longevity. Unit barely lasted two years. Stay away and buy something else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC has now chosed profit over reliability. Wow, I haven't read the reviews for a UPS in awhile. My mistake! I have given APC the benefit of the doubt for about a decade, but the last two units I've purchased and installed at different locations in the previous year have the "midnight scream" problem after less than 6 months of use. The alarm will go off randomly about every couple of weeks and you have to shut the unit down and power it back on to get it to stop. Even with a small load on it. Tech support says it's fine and makes me do the troubleshooting steps which never show an issue. They tell me everything is working correctly and no need for a RMA and suggest maybe I'm doing "something" wrong or the batteries aren't charged. Then they will send me a link to a PDF manual which is extremely patronizing. This makes the warranty essentially useless. No log or ability to replace the battery either. Don't put yourself in this position if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from few features, lots of problems and noise I bought min in 2016 and it's finally quit after very minimum usage. I used it only when necessary. There was a reason for that: it was unreliable. The 425va is probably fine for a laptop or two, but definitely not a non-gaming desktop and a thin client, two monitors, and a cell phone charger. It screeched low-battery status all the time, sometimes for seemingly no reason when most of the things were turned off. Thanks to the battery, it was non-returnable. I love APC, bu this was, quite simply, an inconvenient piece of junk that couldn't even be used as a mult-outlet surge protector. After this, i'm definitely not buying anything office-retail grade from APC again._ Further, it made *a lot* of noise -- a constant high-pitch whine when the battery is charging (plus the smell of ozone and plastic but that sometimes seemed like my imagination). The screws are very far inset, about 6.5 inches, so unless you have some specialized philips-head screwdrivers you will not be able to do anything with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job. I bought this within the past month to replace an APC Back-Ups Office 280 that I had had for at least 10 years (an internal component burned up). Since I had had such a good experience with this first unit, I chose APC for my replacement. Because my previous unit had replaceable batteries, I didn't even think to check whether the new unit also used replaceable batteries. My only disappointment with the new unit was that it does not have replaceable batteries, meaning that in 3-5 years, I will be needing to replace the whole unit. I appreciate that the company has a recycling program (I got a 5.99? credit towards the purchase of my new unit, plus free shipping, on the return of the old unit) but it cost me $21.66 to have it packed and shipped from the UPS Store. For that reason, I give 4 stars.

Perfect for that closet, cabinet or other out-of-way location that still requires protection from outages caused by bad weather or routine line maintenance. Don't neglect this often overlooked need for UPS protection!

When the arrived, they were not what our company needed/desired. I called to process a return and was "shamed" for using YOUR website's recommendation and not calling to get a recommendation. I started a return process and was told we would be charged a 15% restocking fee. I was also told I would be contacted to start the return process after a certain department approved our return. That has never happened. The product is still in the box it came in sitting in our supply office. The owner has stated we will not order from the company again and just search elsewhere for our battery/backup needs.
