Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst ups ever Bought multiple units of these, 1 was swapped shortly after purchase as doa, there is no easy way to configure basic things such as power sensitivity unless you use powerchute, units don't switch back to mains on power coming back on I've got no idea how this could be released as a product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Config utility could be great Documentation is sparse as we can't find the IP Address update FAQ. The config utility finds the MAC, then you can set the IP, Subnet, etc.. That works well. However you cannot change the IP in the future with this utility, nor will it find the device once it's IP is set. There is supposed to be a FAQ on how to do this, but we can't find it. We have many different models of APC products in our data center, and same issue. APC you could update that utility to find all the APC products or heck even all IP's that can be seen and let your utility change IPs of your UPS units from there. Would be a great utility if that worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Smart UPS This is a professional made product. I like the fact that the lithium ion battery is user replaceable (and lightweight) making for a long lasting product. Warranty is excellent too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from *THIS* is the future for small rack mounted UPSes! Yet another addition to the expanding offering of APC Li-Ion UPSes, this is the smallest, at only 400W / 500VA, However, it offers nearly 13 minutes of runtime at 100W load, which is probably about average for what most users will experience. With nearly 2x the battery life compared to lead acid, the TCO is extremely attractive. The short mounting depth of 9” and small 1 rack unit height make this UPS perfect for switches fiber fiber entrance WAN applications. Switched outlet group control (6 - NEMA 5-15R) allows for application specific settings, thresholds and notifications. A standard 5 year repair or replace warranty and SmartConnect® accessibility seals the deal, at least for me. *THIS* is the future for small, rack mounted UPS models!
