OMNIVS1500 4.6 5 15 15
This product has all the features I want This product is perfect for my needs. I have 2 computers and a monitor connected to it. I have not had any problems with it. September 7, 2013
Good for 3 years 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 :-( September 6, 2013
dependable but warm 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. September 6, 2013
Saved me more than once! 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. September 5, 2013

Software compatiblity

Hi,
I am thinking about recommending this to a user. Does the software that comes along with this one work perfectly with Windows 7 OS? UPS should be able to shutdown the PC when battery is low..

Answers

Answer: 
I used the software with Windows 7 and did not have any problem with software but it does not show much. No detail like the bigger ones have. No exact voltage or power level history.

It does have the automatic shutdown option and it worked but I decided not to use it and uninstalled it. The bigger ones I have used were always reliable for shutting down so I would trust this one as well for stand alone use.

Answer: 
In the year or so I have had this, I have never seen it work. I have been out of the office when anyting like this has happened. Evidence seems to indicate that the shutdown was correct, but I have not witnessed it. Sorry.

Answer: 
I didn't. I just plugged it in and started using it. It had a charge right out of the box. Charging might be recommended but I don't remember what the manual said.

Answer: 
I sit right by it and forget it is even there unless the power goes out. No noise issue on standby.

When power is lost it goes beep beep and there is a noticable hum. Can be turned off by pushing button.
