Excellent UPS for small office

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

I got this UPS for my office as I have 2 laptops and 4 PCs running for software testing.
I needed a UPS that would provide both filtered AC power along with short term battery backup for those power glitches.
The SMART 1500 LCDT fits my needs perfectly.
The UPS kept my 4 PCs powered long enough (~5 minutes) to allow me to stop the running tests and power down the PCs without losing any data during a resent power outage.

Plug and Play at its best

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

> worked with no hitches out of the box
> it is protecting a computer, a network storage device, and a wireless router. It also provides regulated voltage to a printer, a scanner, two monitors, and two speakers.
> I know I chose a rating that is higher than the expected load by a factor of 2
> tested the circuitry, and it worked fine
> was actually present at my desk when we experienced 2-3 short duration (less than a second each) voltage sags, and the Smart1500LCT performed flawlessly.

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

I built my new computer in July 2014 and wanted to protect it from all mishaps specially electrical problems. Well after installing it in August 2014 so far I have had no problems. The unit has a 3 year warranty hope I don't have to use it any time. It looks good and is working fine. Buy it with confidence I highly recommend it as it a wise investment.

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

We use this product to back up the brains to our operation, so we rely on something that we can trust. Has an easy to read read out and does not take up much space. Like everyone these days, we were looking for a good product but affordable and we found it.

My second unit. Very Good

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

This is a replacement unit for a SMART 1500LCD over 5 years old with a failed battery.

The old unit had all outlets connected to the UPS. The new one has 5 UPS and 5 Surge protected without UPS. This is a setback.

Powerful and compact, with great display

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

I bought this unit to replace some smaller Tripp-Lite boxes that had served me well for more than five years. The display is bright, clean and easy to read at a distance. Also, the UPS has a relatively small footprint, considering that it's capable of powering two monitors, a desktop PC and some smaller desktop appliances for long enough to ride out most outages.

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

I had built my computer a couple of months ago and spent a fortune on it. Never had a UPS for it (quite stupid I must say) I received this UPS as a gift for my computer and now I don't have to worry each time I hear some thunder or a unexpected short out/brown outs. Thank you TrippLite!

Effortless, quiet, competent protection

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Smart LCD 1500VA Tower Line-Interactive 120V UPS with LCD display and USB port:

I upgraded to this Tripp Lite Digital UPS System after the failure of another manufacturer's product left me defenseless against power outages as a freelance editor. Installation was quick and easy, and it sits quietly next to my computer doing its thing. In the event of a power outage I can wrap up a project and send it by email before having to shut down. And I love the LCD screen so I can monitor performance in real-time. Great product!
