Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with one serious limitation Wonderful product as long as it works. Only problem is the battery is NOT replaceable, and the life of the unit is maybe three years if you're lucky. I've had four of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product works perfectly The Tripp Lite AV550SC fills a niche that most UPSs can't. This product supplies uninterrupted power flow to devices normally found together in home networks, as well as properly managing power-up. Its delayed power-on for the router minimizes logon confusion, and the 12VDC supply to keep such devices going makes a hard-to-find combination. It's also smart enough to communicate with your computer to arrange for smooth shut-downs in long outages. The ability to be wall-mounted helps manage equipment clutter. An excellent choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well for just 1 year Worked very well for about 1 year, then it stopped working as a backup battery. Power flows through just fine when plugged in, but as soon as the power is out all output is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for structured wiring enclosures By far the most important component of any residential structured wiring enclosure should be the AV550SC. Compact and designed for perfect fit in most structured wiring enclosures. This beauty allows all components like modems, routers, switches and distribution hubs to get surge protected, filtered, an uninterruptible power. If the power goes out its good to know these systems will still be able to function. Works best in enclosures where the power outlet of the enclosure is to the far right side. Avoid enclosures with the power outlets in the middle at the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well in On-Q Good packaging, sufficient power connection for small network (modem, router, switch) and surge suppression for cable. Battery is documented as NON user replaceable. The product is very expensive for what it does but there are few other options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and easy to install It's heavy but compact and it fits perfectly in our home network panel. It arrived quickly. Very easy install. This is our second Tripp Lite, the first one lasting 10 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with Leviton Structured Media Cabinet Purchased to power items in a newly-installed structured media cabinet. Unit fits well on the Leviton SMC shelf, though I secured with zip-ties rather than the velcro straps. Until fits perfectly and will keep our Sonic fiber ONT and router up and running should there be a power interruption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product again!!!!! I have a Control 4 system with a whole house hot spot and ethernet jacks in each room. It was installed 4 years ago and the 500VA backs up this part of the setup. It's worked great, I worked with my system provider to see if there was anything new in the market and the 500 VA still is the best product for the job. I highly recommend this product for your power backup needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for modem and router in enclosure Fits perfectly in enclosure with modem, router and PoE switch. Love the feature that delays the power on of the router by a minute. The modem of the internet provider is always getting stuck during reboot when router was already on.
