Product Overview

The Back-UPS Pro provides abundant battery backup power, so you can work through medium and extended length power outages. It safeguards your equipment against damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility and data lines. And it 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 Pro 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 Pro's standard features, this is the perfect unit to protect your productivity from the constant threat of bad power and lost data.

APC Back-UPS Pro 1500VA UPS is rated4.59 out of5 by122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Back-UPS Pro 1500VA UPS Dropping like fliesWe have over 300 sites with these UPSs. They seemed to be a good product until about 8 months ago. Recently we have had 50% them fail in the first few months with a error code F02. The UPSs are in remote offices where there are no technical resources. CDW will not replace them, we have to go through APC. APC will not send out a replacement unit until they receive the old one back. This leaves our equipment unprotected for a month while the transaction takes place. Also we put a burden on our customers to assist with troubleshooting or hire a technician to make 2 visits to the remote office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power Saving Back UPS Pro 1500Great item, replaced my old one as the battery went out after 4.6 years of service. Like the LCD screen, smaller size, more outlets, and more power. Great item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good BatteryThe Battery did not come with USB cable or Manual. Fan runs all the time but is not too loud. I had to call to confirm stipulated clearance around it when placing it because of the fan; was told 2 inches will be OK. The battery is fine. It is a good for the value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade UnitThis unit replaced a APC BR1000G unit that died but saved our local network and office computers from a CLOSE lightning strike. The unit was shipped promptly, installed easily, and the Trade Up program was a blessing. We have used APC units for several years because they are well-built and reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the moneyI bought this about 3 months ago. I run a dell top of the line XPS system. The product will keep my internet server up and running when we lose power. It will not keep my system up but does keep my shutdown safe so when power comes back on I did not lose all my information. I thought it would at least keep me up and running long enough to save and shut down. Guess I will have to think about a bigger one next time. I know people have complained about the size and fan noise. Do not see a issues with it in my opinion. Fans are no louder than my system fans. All in all very happy just hate it keep telling me the battery needs replaced and the screen shows full charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Info on the fanI have been using the BR1500G with a BR24BPG or its equivalent for many years. A few weeks ago, I had to change the old one for the new model. When I received it, I was a little worried, because the fan never stopped. However, it is important to know that after a few days, it stops and full quietness comes back to normal. I am extremely happy with the new model, as I was with the old one. In addition, I like the new screen which tells how much watts is consumed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR1500G APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500I love my new APC. It provides me enough power for all my devices. With the PowerChute software, I am able to manage my power use.The best feature I like the most is the ability to set a master device (in this case my CPU), and when ii goes into sleep mode, my APC shuts off the power to my other devices, saving me money. In addition, when I power off my CPU, all other devices connected to my APC also turn off, eliminating the need to manually shut down all my devices individually. So i never wonder if I forgot to shut something off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPSI nice improvement over the previous model. I especially like that ports are powered off when the primary device is turned off. The only thing it lacks is true sine wave output when on battery.I highly recommend this for UPS for home users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st upgradeThis is the first time that I have done the online upgrade with APC. It went flawless. The new BR1500G went in without much of a hitch and has performed top notch. Not sure what the fan noise issue that I have seen on other comments as I can barley hear anything under normal operating conditions. I would not hesitate to purchase my next unit from APC. My only complaint was the software was not included with the unit as a new version has been produced by not available on hard copy. I wish they would have issued a postcard that one could send in to obtain this when available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ReplacementI had a 1500LCD that I received as a warranty replacement of another 1500.The 1500LCD went bad out of waranty, this was recommended on a Trade-UPS. It is more similar to the earluier one I had and in fact takes the same add-on battery pack I had with the first model, It is just a different color.So far I am pleased, and was especially pleased when APC accepted return of the battery i ordered when I thought the problem with the LCD was battery.I did learn to CALL tech support before assuming a battery is bad when a unit fails very quickly after power failure,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with Purchase!We purchased a new BR1500G APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 in replacement of a past APC Back-UPS that had been purchased in 2003. It was time to replace the older model's battery but we wanted to take advantage of newer technology along with the power saving abilities of a modern APC Back-UPS. This model was selected to do exactly that and to take us into the future for several years. It has not disappointed us at all. We were able to use the Trade-UPS program which gave us a discount on our new BR1500G APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 by purchasing directly from APC. We ran a price check on several internet price comparison sites and found the Trade-UPS price was the best. Importantly, it also gave us the ability of sending the old model and battery back to APC (on their dime as they paid for the return postage). This is a fantastic "green" alternative so that we were removed from battery disposal issues! We had our new BR1500G APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 in two business days and have been happy with it since the arrival. This is the fourth APC unit purchased in over 20 years. Thank you APC for your great reliable products and buying experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent UpgradeHaving expanded to include the ability to work from home, this battery backup is excellent. It allows me to keep have all of my home computer equipment attached to one device which has cleared up some cable clutter. The alarm is loud enough to be heard throughout the house without being overbearing. Easy to setup and the display is the best I have seen yet, clear and easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd APC purchase.. Going strong!This is my 3rd APC product purchase. Like those before it, I expect to outgrow it before having any issues. Of the 3, only the first needed a purely age-related battery replacement This unit is the primary and handles the Synology NAS (media server), both i7-class desktops and their monitors, and all networking. The secondary handles external drives for the NAS, one room light (desk), and mobile devices. This configuration permits orderly shutdown (UPS - NAS) and allows the HDDs to be free floating after shutdown of the OS. Total power consumption is approx 550 VA across the 750 VA & 1500VA units. Minimal runtime on battery is 17 minutes (tested). Power in central PA is unpredictable. On the clearest of day a power event can cause just enough interruption to 'crash' the NAS and force a restart. Recovering from abrupt shutdown is a long, time-consuming process while the RAID set verifies the file system (25 TB). A UPS of some time is mandated with a RAID-configured media server. This unit has been in operation 14 days, the weather mild (no snow), and has already had 2 events. None of the systems even noticed it.I've recommended APC to friends. One just purchased 3 BR1500G units for his office. Two blade servers and the file server.Enough said?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back-UPS RS1500While always a good product, APC has made real improvements in the 1500 VA line of backup power units. The trade-up option is a great way to update when battery replacement time comes due for an older unit. Spending only a little more than a fresh battery to get a new modernized unit is good for the customer and the planet. The reduced weight and form factor as well as the enhanced diagnostics are tangible upgrades to a comparable-load product. Nicely done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QualityMy previous 1500 had died after 5 years of quality use, so I opted for the exchange program to recycle my old unit (and get a little discount off the new model). New model is smaller than my old unit and offers more connections and plugs than the previous 1500... Well done APC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ProductI bought a Back UPS RS 1500 and have been using it from over a year now. Great product. After I installed this I did not have a blow out on my TV, CCTV, security cameras etc insoite of having power cuts/surges here. I have several more UPS's all of APC and they have all served me well. I have several surge protectors for all laptops at home. Have been using APC products for over 15 years and have used it in Africa, India and now in the US.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Got APC UPSI have been using UPS since 1992. In 1994, my non-APC UPS failed and the company gave me no recourse. I then discovered APC. Since then, I have only used APC products. As my systems grew, I increased my UPS capacities. APC's "Trade UPS" program made this easy and less costly. I am on Oxygen Therapy 24/7 and use an APC BR1500G UPS on my oxygen concentrator. I also have Sleep Apnea and use a CPAP to control my breathing while I sleep at night and a second BR1500G keeps it going for me. If me have a power outage, I know that I will have sufficient time to switch over to bottled oxygen. Many times at night, I even sleep through blackouts and never know hay happened! I also have BR1500Gs on all our HDTV sets and their peripheral equipment (home theater, DVR, etc.). We have landline telephone service so we do not worry about losing phone service during blackouts such as we had on 09/08/2011. But we do have wireless handsets and we protect the base station with a smaller APC UPS. We also have solar panels (3.1 KW) on our roof. I cannot think of a better partner for my APC UPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR1500GI own five units, two PRO 1500's w/ BR24BPG external packs and three XS 1500's. The fan noise is not an issue at all, it runs for about four hours after initial startup and then kicks on periodically as needed to recharge the unit. The extra battery pack is definitely worth it as the runtime is extended by 3X. All in All a solid UPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Worth the MoneyI would have given the product five stars if the price was cheaper. I cannot comment on all of the features because I do not use all of them. However, I will say that I am definitely satisfied with the unit.One of my favorite features is the power saving outlets. I have a Playstation 3 plugged into the master outlet and a TV plugged into the outlet below it. So when I turn on my PS3 the TV turns on. When I turn off my PS3 the TV turns off. Pretty cool if you ask me.The battery run time is also satisfactory. I recently watched Netflix through my PS3 for roughly 47 minutes on battery power before having to plug the unit back into the wall outlet.All in all I feel that this purchase was money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for Macintosh UsersI have relied on APC products for more than a decade. I like them, I trust them, they make good reliable equipment. I recently upgraded my old UPS Smart Backup Pro 1000 to a much newer model. It works just fine. No complaints and I like their recycling policy where I send back my old unit to be recycled for free. Thank you. So WHY do I say I would NOT recommend my APC UPS to a Macintosh owner? One simple answer - after a decade, and more than 100 million Macs sold - APC still acts like we don't exist and it ONLY includes Powershute Software for Windows PC's. NOTHING helpful or useful for Macs. And they need to know we DO care about this and we DO want this and I won't buy another APC unit IF it doesn't support Macs in the future. Simple - straight - honest review. Hope it helps you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dumb seriesThis unit is unable to keep my computer running in the case of of a power interruption. Tech support explained that this unit can not react fast enough to keep the computer running. I was advised to upgrade to the smart series which is supposed to react faster. I figured a Pro series product would handle pro grade use. Therefore, I call it dumb if it's not pro and it's not smart it must be dumb and useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never a disappointmentThis unit is just perfect to guard against power fluctuations or short disruptions when switching over to generator..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!My new computer was tremendously upgraded when I ordered it, so it was very expensive. I have always used APC's products, and found them extremely reliable. I have my computer, printer, 3 external drives, etc. hooked into my new Back-UPS Pro 1500, and still have room and power to hook more things into it.It has many outlets in the back which has been wonderful for my purposes and what I plug into it. I've been using it for several months now, and it has done it's job several times with the storms and electrical outages we have here, not to mention the horrible surges also. It has many qualities that are wonderful and so simple to set up and use.I always was so thrilled that I was able to receive a discount from APC's trade-in program. Now that is a great idea for a company.You can't go wrong if you choose this unit, or for that matter any of the units APC sells, as they are dynamite and work great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit!Easy to set up, and simple to use if you own a Windows PC type cornputer .. I happen to run a MAC, and it runs right through the power control in System Preferences. Could not be easier. It might have helped if the documentation said that to run it on a MAC, just use the onboard system in your OS, but other than that, it is a piece of cake. Well made, easy controls and looks great. I just ordered the BR34BPG external battery pack for it, so it can run anything I throw at it. I really like APC equipment, and have for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement UPS systemI bought this to replace an earlier APC unit I had used for a number of years. It is an excellent product so far. My only complaint is when I have to put in a larger size transformer block plug, the outlets are a little close together to be able to use all of them effectively. Some plugs that need to be protected are larger than others. The outlets could be spaced a little further apart. Otherwise the unit is an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back-UPS Pro 1500I have been using APC back up power supplies at home and work for the past 17 years and have come to rely on their performance and reliability. After my home UPS battery croaked (a unit bought back in 1994) I decided to upgrade it for something a bit more modern with the power capacity to run my Mac G5 workstation. So far it has run like a champ, quiet, reliable and ready to kick in. No regrets, I highly recommend the Pro 1500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable - EfficientJust like my 'smaller' UPS review, I sell dozens and dozens of these things a year and they've proven themselves over and over again. When you don't overload these with too much equipment, I've gotten 20min+ out of them keeping my servers online while we lost power, has saved my bum MULTIPLE times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome PurchaseI purchased this new APC unit (via the upgrade program), after the battery in my old unit expired (after 5 years of service). I could have simply replaced the battery, but I opted to take advantage of the upgrade program, since the newer APC models have a 'green mode'. The upgrade was a stunning success. Not only do I have a new APC UPS solution, but upgrading from my old UPS unit seems to have made my monthly power bill drop like a rock. I have nothing but positive opinions about both the new UPS unit and APC's upgrade program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never A ProblemWe have used APC exclusively for more than 10 years. With units on three critical stations we have never had a problem or loss. Our most recent purchase of the UPS Pro 1500 was the easiest to install and put into operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product needs improvementThe Back Ups Pro 1500 must have a design flaw. I own several of these units. At least two do not power my plugged in devices in the event of a power failure. The devices they support are plugged into the labeled battery backup sockets not the surge protected only sockets. It is not worth the hassle of pulling these out of service until their useful life ends. I just hope no other battery back up units of the same model come in with this defect. For the units that do work, their run time with a standard PC plugged in is about 20 minutes. I was hoping for much longer run time than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro 1500It certainly works as a ups, but the outlet configuration and quantity are way below average for something this expensive. Big capacity and only 5 battery outlets, less if you have a transformer block to plug-in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back-UPS Pro 1500That unit helps conserve energy. It can be configured to, recognize a 'master' device and controlled 'peripherals', that power on and off, as a group. The strength of the signal, from the master to the peripherals, can be varied, for those difficult to control peripherals. The units sensitivity to inpuit voltage fluctuations, triggering a switch to backup battery power, can be adjusted, to allow for delicate peripherals. The front-panel User display can even be set to, darken after a period of, inactivity, conserving further power. Very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and easy to useI have been using APC power backups for over 15 years and have yet to be disappointed. The units are reliable and easy to install. However expectations have to be reasonable regarding battery backup capabilities. These units are great for managing power surges, lightning spikes and brown outs. Just don't expect them to substitute for a backup generator. They will buy you enough time - 5 to 10 minutes- to save data and conduct a controlled shut down of your computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for Home or Home office applicationsI have owned many APC power supplies for home and home/small office applications over the years. This unit sounded like a good upgrade to one old unit which had finally developed a fault. The power saving features and master control function seemed quite attractive for my application of a computer system integrated into my home theater room. The downside to this new unit did not become apparent until I plugged it in. The fan on this unit is SO LOUD that it is simply not appropriate for home office or home theater computer applications. The sound is so loud it would only be at home in a data center room dedicated to such purpose where all such loud fan equipment would be located. I even had it placed inside the cabinet which housed all the home theater equipment and it could easily be heard over the movies through the cabinet doors and ventilation system. This is just not practical in most homes. I returned this unit in exchange for the older rs1500LCD which only has a fan running when actually on battery power. I am sure that the fan on the RS1500G will make the components last longer, but you will not enjoy being in the same room with it in you home.

Annoying! Loud!And, within days of my one year purchase anniversary, it's dead. A fused relay or something according to the error code. But you know what? I'm glad it's dead. I hated it and even though I have to shell out more money again so soon after buying this lump of junk, I'll welcome the opportunity to get it out of my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR1500G has good optionsAPC has always had good products. This UPS offers good protection for today's high wattage electronics and has plenty of battery backup outlets, surge-only outlets and a green option for powering all devices down based on one device. While I personally will probably not use this option, I'm sure some would find it a nice extra. The price is still a little on the high side but as long as APC keeps the quality high, a "little" more is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, not excellent.First, those who mention this is not 'Mac' friendly. This simply is not the case. I have been using this with my iMac and it works fine. "Powerchute" is not needed. You plug included USB cable from the Backup to the computer. You go to Power Management settings on your Mac. UPS will be in the options and you can make all the sleep/standby/shut down after such and such a time from there. I've tested it, it works fine. Mac's own included software is used instead of Powerchute, that's all. The battery fan is an anomaly, for sure. These are the first UPS units from APC that I've owned that do this. I've owned several. I have two Pro 1500 models. One has the extra battery pack. If the power flickers on that one, even for a second, the fan turns on and stays on for at least 2 hours. This is bizarre, and certainly not 'Green.' On the other unit, the fan does not stay on for a long period of time. It will quickly charge and shut off, or if the power fails for a second or two, no fan turns on at all. It seems to me that the extended battery shouldn't cause the unit's fan to stay on for such a long time. All that said, the units 'work' and back up my power to my computer, modem, phone, ATA, and so on. I just wish the fan wouldn't stay on for so long. (It's running now as the power just flicked off for a second. It's been running for 1 hour now.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of 7 APCs I've owned since 1994I have used APC for Apple computer and audio system backups since 1994. They are reliable and work as advertised. Two have been replaced on the TradeUps program. This one is used at this time to provide backup to a Mirage Sub-Woofer.While one reviewer found the fan noise objectionable, my unit sits beside my recliner and even when the fan is on (on cold start for about 10 minutes) I can barely hear it. His might have been defective.My only "gripe" is on the Quick Reference section for the function buttons. It is a little too briefly written for me. I would like to see certain areas that deal with the Master/Controlled outlet Enable/Disable, and right under it, the Master/Enable Threshold Calibration written in more detail.I like this unit. By way of note, my others did provide a pure sine wave instead of a stepped sine wave. I notice no difference with this new equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver During Hurricane SandyI received this UPS product as a present back in 2010. It did its job powering my iMac, PS3, router, and modem during random brown outs / circuit breaks due to too many appliances being on at the same time (Microwave, Washer, Dryer, etc.). The house was built in 1929 and although renovations were being done over the years, the electrical system wasn’t the greatest but has been recently upgraded last month.The UPS came to light during late October 2012 when Hurricane Sandy came ashore in New Jersey. I was performing an online NBA fantasy draft between colleagues when the Hurricane knocked out the power in the neighborhood during the last rounds of the draft (Who schedules a fantasy draft during a hurricane?? We still blame the commissioner about that up to this day but to his defense, the date was scheduled a month prior even before the storm was predicted to hit the NJ area). As soon as the power went out, my iMac was running on the UPS’s backup battery during the last 2 rounds of the draft. I could tell my rivals lost connection as it gave me an advantage picking the right sleepers. I was able to power down my iMac, router, and modem safely after the draft successfully.The power was knocked out for a whole week as we were able to use the UPS’s backup battery to power a portable electric stove to cook canned goods and soups / non perishable food as well as charging our cell phones and electric toothbrushes for 4 days. I was shocked how long the UPS’s battery power lasted! By the 5th day, I gave the UPS to my father to fully charge the battery at his workplace where the power was restored. The UPS continued to power the portable electric stove and charge cell phones until the one week mark when we finally received power at the house as the UPS then charged up from where it was at the halfway mark.The UPS continues to provide power to my iMac, PS3, router, and modem especially when the TV and cable box in the living room randomly shuts off due to a random brown out or low voltage. My man cave center still continues to run during these times thanks to this UPS! At the time of this review, I also ordered the APC AV J35 to safely provide the right voltage and battery backup to the TV and cable box in the living room during these random brown outs. I’ll continue to use APC to safely provide the right voltage and battery backup power to all my productivity and entertainment electronics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good UnitAPC delivered the unit overnight (reasonable extra charge) to replace a previous APC - several years old - that was due for replacement. Installed the battery, it came charged, and had only one minor glitch with the LCD readout. Called Customer Service, they answered within one minute. The agent was extremely helpful and within another minute had the issue resolved. Since installing had three minor outages and one 3-hour outage. The APC worked seamlessly including a readout of how many minutes of backup power were left. The fan, which is quiet, only went on when the unit was backing up power. Other than that it is silent. I am extremely happy with this purchase and highly recommend it. I also took advantage of the APC recycle service for my old APC. A valuable service.

When the device powers off, it wakes up the CPU to tell it it disconnected, and the CPU and the Other Controlled Devices all wake up again. But once figured out, changing the USB device to a NON Controlled Outklet gives you great power savings if you are an intermittent user or need to leave the unit on for overnight update jobs.Great features, great expansion capacity and a real saver in the NE with the Winter and Power Outages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC WorksWe have been using APC products since the 1980's both at work and at home. Moved up to this unit when old one died and we moved to a new PC. Customer Service has always been GREAT. We would not purchase without getting the extended warranty, which will pay for a new battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS with an available extra battery packI love that this supports an add-on battery pack (APC Back-UPS Pro Battery Pack 24V - battery enclosure - lead acidMfg. Part#: BR24BPGUNSPSC: 26111723) for longer life of attached devices. This is an affordable solution that provides an hour or more of run-time, which is just what I needed.
