Great UPS, Stylish and Reliable I purchased this a couple months ago and have no complaints. I like the display and have important PC, Switch and Server equipment plugged in. It has bleeped once or twice when a surge or millisecond outage occurred. I usually buy APC but I found their batteries seem to die pretty quickly, regardless of overall load and usage around the home. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is because I have not yet experienced running anything on the Tripp Lite battery alone (no power cuts, thankfully, although I have used the "Test" button twice, which checks the battery-only supply for 10 seconds). I promise to UPDATE the review if I think it will help your decision to buy one for your needs. Another techie friend of mine also recommended this brand or APC, so I don't have buyer's remorse. It's very simple to unpack and install and has a USB interface if you want to monitor its features from your desktop. For me, the display alone is enough reassurance. I recommend this for anyone who has a small office running critical hardware, or for a family entertainment center. Just be mindful of the technical loads/ratings you need. Watch also for TVs and PC Monitors, as these will suck the battery dry in minutes, no matter the brand or battery size. Overall, it is therefore a great backup for shutting things down gracefully and for coping with spikes and surges here in Florida (a frequent occurrence). Well worth the money I paid.

My first Tripp Lite product. Purchased this to replace a generic 5-year old UPS. Extremely easy to setup. Great Price. Fits perfectly inside our custom cabinet for Firewall and Router. The unit has been working perfectly. No problems, no failures and so far I am very happy. I would strongly recommend this Tripp Lite unit. November 25, 2013
This product is a MUST HAVE in my area! I live in the mountains and our power company is not very reliable. We have a lot of power surges and sags. If you have a very valuable Home Theater system like mine. You need this protection. I had another UPS system, it was also a Tripplite product. It performed very well and lasted for many years. Unfortunalty the battery went bad and it was unreplaceable. If you buy a UPS for your home theater or computer get a Tripplite, and get one you can order and replace the batteries yourself. November 3, 2013
I like the feed back this backup gives. Wonderful product out of the package. Easy to setup. LCD read out easy to understand. September 20, 2013

We appreciate your interest in our UPS Solutions line of products. Please note that the SMART1500LCDT is a model found in our "SMARTPRO Series" of products that references the UPS's intelligent power management capability rather than its battery mode waveform output.

PFC PSUs

You say this has a "PWM" "sine" output. That could mean many different things to different people. Please describe the output waveform exactly, so customers can decide whether this is suitable for use with PFC type loads.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in our UPS Solutions line of products. Please note that our reference to "PWM" sine wave describes a Pulse Width Modulated or rectangular pulse wave form. Alternatively, please note that we also have UPS solutions that output a "Pure" sine wave.
