AVR900U 4.5 5 4 4
Excellent performance I have used two of these for a number of years. They have reliably provided backup power during somewhat frequent short term power outages. I believe these two units saved our computers and related equipment when we received a close lightning strike and the power surge was instantly controlled to our equipment. This is an excellent product. September 9, 2013
Good UPS and a decent price We bought several of these for the office and have so far been pleased with all of them. They have kept our equipment running during several power outages. They keep an average PC running for a lot longer than we expected. Would definitely purchase them again. September 6, 2013
Keeps us running!! We're in the investment industry and rely on our computers for timely market information. With the unpredictable weather we have had times when power to our building has been interrupted. Thankfully our UPS kicked in and kept us running long enough to make the appropriate adjustments. We would not be without a Tripp-Lite UPS. October 31, 2012
Great general purpose home UPS This UPS packs a punch for a reasonable price. Great power backup length of time. 12, I repeat 12 outlets! Reliability that Tripp-Lite provides is second to none. When my low older 2 1/2 year old battery started making my UPS do strange things, they were amazing with customer service that went above and beyond most experiences with any other company. Kudo's guys. Would definitely buy another, oh wait, I already have 3 of these and counting ... October 29, 2012

Spike protection; energy storage

Two questions:
(1) What rating can you provide regarding spike protection, e.g., from a nearby lightning strike?
(2) For what length of time can this unit support a load requiring its full rating? And how would I calculate its time-versus-load curve?

Answer: 
It's ideal to plug a UPS system in, turn it on, and wait 24 hours for a complete charge when setting up a new system. This will ensure the UPS system is in working order and ready to go when equipment is connected to it.

We have to ensure devices are FIPS certified (Complient).
Do you have documentation stating the certification?
