Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marques Alan Does not work with a Mac Pro Tower
I called APC directly to find out which Backup I should use with a Mac Pro tower. This one was recommended. It has simulated sine wave. You need TRUE sine wave to let your Mac go to sleep. Solution was to leave my computer fans and everything running 24/7. Not quite energy saving is it?

I purchased the 1300 to protect my PC from electrical malfunctions. It has multiple outlets for all my needs. I am very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RAYHIGHERS3 BR1300G is best UPS ever!
I purchased this a few years ago. Recently, it started chirping letting me know that the battery needed to be replaced. Went on the web site, ordered the correct battery and installed it today (09/04/2015). Outstanding UPS for home office use with it being small, LCD display, and outstanding catching the voltage or frequency change to start the battery back-up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Doesnt appear to function as a UPS
The APC UPS i had before this lasted 3 years before my first issue and that was just that I needed to replace the battery.
This one completely died by day 3. No errors. Outlet was fine, wasnt overloaded (max load 50%, most of the time under 10%) and the 3rd night it started beeping. Got up in the morning to see that everything was off and the UPS was unresponsive.
Tried a different outlet, reset the breaker, unplugged everything. The only thing that got the UPS working again was to pull the battery and replace. And that is all the online help could suggest.
Its NOT a UPS if every 3 days you have to reset it. Im giving it one more try before returning it.

The Backup Pro 1300 is the ultimate unit for home use. Power smoothing, battery backup, lightening protection. It doesn't get any better than this!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ljg Reliable Power Protection
I purchased this unit through the Trade-UPS program to replace an older model used to protect computers and networking equipment in a home office environment. We live in a rural area and are subject to frequent power fluctuations and outages and so this equipment is essential.
I really like the display that allows me to monitor power conditions and battery status. On the downside, this unit makes a fair bit of fan noise when operating on battery power.
The Trade-UPS program is a breeze - the new product arrives promptly and returning the old unit for recycling is the right thing to do. I have used APC for years and love the brand, products, and service.

My previous APC UPS died in the line of duty - protecting a couple of high-end pc's. It was still good for a trade-in.
This one works just as reliably as always.
