Tripp Lite's OMNIVS1500 line interactive UPS system offers voltage regulation, surge suppression and battery support for personal computers, internetworking equipment and other sensitive electronics. Internal UPS batteries support entry level PC systems for up to 75 minutes during power failures so that connected equipment can be shut down without data loss. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) circuits regulate brownouts as low as 75 and overvoltages up to 147 volts back to usable 120V levels without using battery power. Offers complete desktop power protection in an attractive black tower configuration. Includes 5 battery supported outlets for computer, monitor and vital system peripherals, plus 3 additional surge suppression only outlets for printers and other system accessories not requiring battery support. USB port enables optional unattended system shutdown without data loss in the case of extended power failure (USB cable included). PowerAlert software available via free download. HID-compliant USB port also enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. Built-in data line suppression offers protection for equipment with single line TEL/DSL or network Ethernet connection. Built-in audible alarm and 5 front panel LEDs indicate status of line power, battery power, battery low/replace, voltage regulation and overload. 1500VA power handling ability supports entry-level PCs, network workstations, point-of-sale equipment, small business phone systems, audio/video equipment and home theater systems. Offers 4 minutes battery runtime with a full load of 1500VA and 8.5 minutes with a half load of 750VA. Supports hot-swappable battery replacement via built-in access panel.

Comments about Tripp Lite OmniVS Series 1500VA Line-Interactive Tower 120V UPS with USB port:

We have almost 200 of these units. They hold their own when we lose power. Up to 15 minutes on Battery power. If I have a Warranty issue the techs are very courteous and helpful, sending parts when necessary. We will continue to use these to protect our high end workstations.

This product is so durable and provides enough power for my work computer. The USB connector is useful for the sudden power outages while I'm no at work to shut down my computer safely. I would recommend this product for office use.

We use this UPS for our small server installation: two servers, 4 switches and a wireless controller. Has performed well during power failures last year, allowing us to properly shut down equipment.

dependable but warm

Comments about Tripp Lite OmniVS Series 1500VA Line-Interactive Tower 120V UPS with USB port:

I bought an OMNIVS1500 last year for my personal use because I lived in North Dakota with brown outs and outages constantly.
I have used bigger Tripplites for years and haven't had any problems with them (I'm a network engineer). This one works well but It doesn't have the voltage monitoring and history the bigger ones have and I miss that.
It clicks on fast enough that I don't loose my computer and can shut it down when I am ready. It also seems to even out the power fluctations. Have continued to play World of Warcraft for 20 minutes after power went out. I keep my dsl modem, pc, monitor and TV on it. Seems not to be bothered by the microwave and airconditioner cycling. Only drawback it's heavy and produces a moderate amount of heat. I am happy with it's performance and would recommend this one for home use or a small server rack.

Good for 3 years

Comments about Tripp Lite OmniVS Series 1500VA Line-Interactive Tower 120V UPS with USB port:

I had my unit for 3.5 years and during that time it worked great. The power went out about once a year where it kicked to battery and worked flawlessly. After the warranty ran out it died on me :-(

Good value and great performance in a UPS

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite OmniVS Series 1500VA Line-Interactive Tower 120V UPS with USB port:

The OMNIVS1500 is a good value and offers superior performance in comparison to its better known competition. Replacement batteries are readily available from several online sources and are reasonably priced. We have gone through many UPS devices but keep coming back to Tripp-Lite as our go-to power supply.

Saved me more than once!

By

Comments about Tripp Lite OmniVS Series 1500VA Line-Interactive Tower 120V UPS with USB port:

I have had this UPS for a little over three years now and it has not failed me once. I use it to back up power and protect my expensive home studio equipment and high end custom built audio PC. Have had a few instances of power loss( I have been know to overload breakers) and had plenty of time to save valuable (and irreplaceable) data and recording sessions. I have never lost even one track.
I am also a full time student and have been able to save important data and research as well as papers over the last three years. I live in an apartment so power is not always reliable. This is the piece of equipment I forget I even have (it is completely silent!) until it saves me from countless hours of re-work! I highly recommend this product if you value your data and your system.
