Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! X1500 ups is a bit overkill for my setup but has been tested by flipping power breakers and was able to maintain power without an issue. The interface is easy to read to get quick updates on the device and the network connectivity to manage power is a bonus. The initial setup basically consisted of plugging it in and confirming a few basic settings. Came with plenty of adapters to allow you to mount the UPS in a server rack or with the provided stands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability in a box The APC Smart-UPS X is the perfect solution to safe guard your network. It’s reliable and ease of use will ensure that your network will remain up and running when you need it most. This APC unit is certainly a robust option for small business and is designed to be rack mounted, but offers the option to be setup as a tower vertically (bracket stands are included). APC makes setup as simple as plug and play, however it’s a rather heavy piece of hardware so you may want a second pair of helping hands if rack mounting the unit. It’s hefty so its not something you want to drop! Once the unit is plugged in, it will prompt you with an easy walkthrough for setup and it will self-test to ensure the battery is operating as expected. Once its complete, the unit is up and running and all set to work on demand! One thing to keep in mind, battery may not be at full charge out of the box, mine was pretty close at 98%. This particular UPS unit comes preinstalled with a Network Management Card which allows for network-based monitoring and management. It also has plenty of NEMA outlets (8 total) to protect your network hardware, so no need for additional surge protectors. This system is also scalable, so should you need more power you can certainly add an additional APC Smart-UPS X-Series External Battery Pack. I also like how simple it is to replace the battery when needed as it’s easily accessible. I’ve had my unit installed for the past couple of weeks and it’s already saved me a few times. I live in an area where we have frequent power outages, so having APC Smart-UPS X is the perfect solution! If you want to provide high quality protection, reliability, and stability against power fluctuation and/or loss, then I would highly recommend adding the APC Smart-UPS X system in your network. It’s simply an excellent piece of hardware backed by unparallel custom support!
