A a rack/tower UPS with line interactive topology, the CyberPower PFC Sinewave OR1500PFCRT2U provides power protection (using sine wave output) and surge protection for department servers, workgroup servers, network devices, telecom appliances, and high-end audio/video equipment requiring active PFC power source compatibility. The OR1500PFCRT2U uses Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, which extends battery life. AVR is essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently.
CyberPower Smart App Intelligent LCD OR1500PFCRT2U is rated5.00 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 byJosh_Your_IT_Guy from nullGood quality UPS with Power Factor Correction.Good price for SMB, cheaper than APC yet has very similar qualities.Great visual indicators for power levels, usage, and battery life.EDIT: 09-25-2014After 2 separate incidents involving 2 phases of our underground service deciding to short out and kill power, our UPSs continue to run strong. In both incidents, the CyberPower UPSs ran until their batteries died, they ran an impressive amount of time, and gave us loud and clear warning tones right before low-voltage cut-off.They continue to run just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 byFreeState from nullAdapted from my Amazon review: I decided to write this review because of the difficulty I had finding a 120V UPS that would work with my 120V/50Hz input. I'm temporarily assigned overseas, and through a bit of trial and error eventually found this UPS from Amazon to work for my needs. My household AC power is 240V at 50Hz... I'm using a step-down transformer to take this to 120V still at 50Hz (transformers do not change the frequency, only the voltage). The 120V/50Hz input is sufficient to power this UPS, which according to it's specs will support an input AC frequency range from 47Hz-63Hz (Voltage input range is from 90V-139V). Another benefit to using this particular UPS is the relatively small size. At 15" deep, it fits in my shallow network/server rack. FWIW, I am powering a 1U Cisco router, 2U Cisco switch, and 3x 1U low-power servers (Intel Atom processors) with this UPS. I have not installed the PowerPanel software yet, but understand it will only allow me to shut down one server through the USB interface.
