Failed after less than a month

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

I originally had a Belkin UPS that lasted for years, far beyond it's warranty. Then I went to my local Electronics store and all they had was TrippLite UPS. I bought it and it died a month after it's warranty expired. Went and got another, and it died in less than a month. Returned it and got a APC. Works just fine. We'll see how long it lasts. Can't honestly recommend TrippLite.

Solid, working UPS

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

Having watched more than a couple power outages shut everything else down, it was great having a little more time to also shut down my PC and monitor.
After several outages through which the Internet 550U protected my gear, I'm a believer and this is all the backup needed.

good and bad

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

Has been doing a good job. Dislike that you can't turn it on without it making the harsh warning sound. Power went out the other night and so did the computer system, so I guess the internal battery has failed which is pretty typical no matter what brand I've used.

Excellent product/ excellent customer service

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

I have had wonderful success with the UPS 550VA. I had what I thought was a problem and called customer service. The error was with our purchasing department not verifying the amount of wattage we needed for the battery back up side. Customer service went over every item we had plugged into the battery backup side and within minutes found that there was too much voltage plugged in. I was able to immediately fix my problem. Thank you to your customer service for friendly, and prompt help. My Tripp-Lite works wonderfully.

What I want of a UPS is that it be quiet, unobtrusive and there when I need it. This UPS does that for our workstations.

Affordable and Reliable

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

This product works for me at home every time the power goes out.

I don't ensure that my PC stays running, but my internet modem, and wireless router, always stay up for longer than the outage is, saving time and connections.

Comments about Tripp Lite Internet Office 550VA Ultra-compact Standby 120V UPS with USB port:

Colorado has the second most lightning strikes in the United States (Florida is #1). Power outages occur quite frequently and used to cause panic. With our UPS's we don't have to worry about losing a day's work any more!
