This BE550G is my third APC UPS unit. The other two have been in service about 10 years and were trouble-free, reliable, and have protected me against local power failures AND one near-miss lightning strike. I rely on these units a LOT! Unfortunately, a recent power surge and failure caused the older of my UPS (BE500U) to blow its battery. I immediately replaced it with this unit. My only criticism of the BE550G is the difficulty of setting it up. While the battery cover came off easily, the battery wouldn't come out of the case far enough to connect it. I finally wrestled the battery out, connected it and got it back in its case. When it came time to connect the components, it took an inordinate effort to push the plugs into the female sockets... I have no doubt they will never work themselves loose, but I do wonder if I'll ever be able to remove them, lol. I love your power management products and won't set my home network up without them!

Everything is fine except for one thing. When power is out and the unit is running on battery, it beeps several times every 30 seconds. This is very annoying. Supposedly there is a setting in the software that disables it. But, I installed the software, made the supposed change, and then I unplugged the UPS from my PC to use it in a closet for a wireless router. The UPS did not retain the setting after being unplugged (or maybe even didn't accept the setting in the first place - I'm not sure). In any event, I"m left with a UPS that beeps every 30 seconds when on battery. I'm well aware of when power goes out - I don't need the beeping. Also, I have ample UPS power on many devices to work comfortably for 20-30 minutes. Having something beeping every 30 seconds is distracting.

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

These are some of the best UPS's for your money. Super easy to install and use. We use them for our customers and internally for our essential workstations like our 24/7 service desk. We had a power surge just last month that knocked out power to half the building. The computers with this UPS were not affected by the surge and stayed powered without interruption as we needed them to. I highly recommend the Back-UPS 550. They're more than affordable and can protect highly valued assets.

Recently connected our XBOX & TV to this battery backup. We don't get many power outages, but we did experience a few during Christmas break. It seems to have save a few XBOX games and, with that, many headaches for mom and dad.

Replacemment Battery

By 

from Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

The battery had no markings that would enable me to find a replacement on the APC site. Lead Acid Batteries vary according to the ratings. The UPS ES 550 did not have any specifications for the battery. This site is not consumer friendly.

Glad I upgraded

By 

from Alexandria, Louisiana

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

I finally broke down and upgraded my UPS. I had a very good UPS from APC, but since I now use Mac OS 10.8.5, I could not make use of the old UPS. The old UPS did not have a usb port. Well, I did buy it new in 2003 and it worked fine with the older Mac OS 9.x. The new one has a usb port and works great so far. All I had to do was unpack it, open the battery cover, plug in the red connector, replace the cover and plug in the power cord and usb connection to my trusty old iMac. Other than possibly needing to replace the battery at some distant time, I am certain I will get a long life from this UPS.

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

We use these units throughout our company and they work well. This was a replacement/upgrade for one with a battery that was going bad. We seem to get about 6 years + out of a unit before the batteries start to show signs of needing to be replaced. In our areas they are a necessity as we get power outages and spikes enough that without them there could be some serious damage or loss.

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

I use APC to protect my computer and TVs here in Florida and never had problems. I do have a question on the BE550G data protection. The documentation says RJ45 10/100 Base-T Ethernet protection, does this include CAT6 gigabit? Thanks

APC 550 great product!

By

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

Our small business has 8 of these for our PC workstations and they work great when the power goes out. It gives us plenty of time to save our work before shutting down if the power stays out for an extended period. I also like the fact that APC gives you a return shipping label so you can ship an old unit that you're replacing back to them for free, and they gave us a discount for the new unit. The units are guaranteed for 3 years. Very happy with this product.

Comments about APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Desktop UPS:

Love this battery back up. Almost every computer in our office has this model, plus I use it at home too. Great to have a chance to turn everything off properly when there is a power surge/wane/outage before losing vital information. Can't beat the warranty either. I really like APC's green return policy too!
