Product Overview

The Back-UPS provides abundant battery backup power, so you can work through medium length power outages. It safeguards your equipment against damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility and data lines. The Back-UPS also features automatic voltage regulation (AVR), which instantly adjusts high and low voltages to safe levels, so you can work indefinitely during brownouts and overvoltages.

The Back-UPS also includes unique "green" features, like power-saving outlets that automatically turn off idle peripherals. A high efficiency charging system and "AVR Bypass" also reduce power consumption. With the rest of the Back-UPS standard features, this is the perfect unit to protect your productivity from the constant threat of bad power and lost data.

APC Back-UPS ES 550VA UPS is rated4.67 out of5 by43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for its purposeThis unit replaced an almost identical unit that had functioned well for several years but finally would no longer hold a charge. Battery replacement was an option, but I was offered a "trade-in" that was fair and reasonable. Set up is simple and power seems adequate for a home office computer. We live in a mountain area with frequent power outages, often very brief ones, so this unit keeps things going without interruption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from D.O.A.Right out of the box; I hooked-up the battery terminal as directed, plugged it in, turned it on, and got the "Replace Battery" indications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I upgradedI finally broke down and upgraded my UPS. I had a very good UPS from APC, but since I now use Mac OS 10.8.5, I could not make use of the old UPS. The old UPS did not have a usb port. Well, I did buy it new in 2003 and it worked fine with the older Mac OS 9.x. The new one has a usb port and works great so far. All I had to do was unpack it, open the battery cover, plug in the red connector, replace the cover and plug in the power cord and usb connection to my trusty old iMac. Other than possibly needing to replace the battery at some distant time, I am certain I will get a long life from this UPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks goodnessWe have had 3 APC Back-UPS and slowly have upgraded to more and more wattage. This particular unit is on my wife's PC. We had a power supply failure and replaced the power supply. In fact, the problem was a failing mother board. Fortunately, the APC Back-UPS 550 was in place because the mother board shorted, killing the new power supply. The Back-UPS protected the network and the remainder of the system so that we could recover the hard drive to re-install all her programs on a new computer. Protection in two ways - incoming and from the computer - make these back-up power supplies absolutely essential. Thanks APC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Wise PurchaseThis is the 3rd APC Back-UPS I've owned and the previous 2 outlasted their warranties. I am pleased with the enormous help the tech gave me and helped facilitate the swap purchase. Also, The Power Chute feature helped make the sale since most of our power outages occur during the night when my computer may be on standby.
