We normally experience one or two short power outages, around a few seconds each month. This unit carries through those without difficulty, though nearly any unit would. We have had a two hour, and then a three day outage due to a tornado, and that brought out the need to replace the BR1000 battery. At the same time the hardware had been upgraded, so I chose the BR1300G. I could have bought a competitive unit locally for the same price as the net trade in price, but I was pleased with the previous service level from APC, and bought direct. The new features, especially the Master circuitry caused me to rethink how I used the device. Formerly I would simple use it as a master power switch. Now the PC itself serves that purpose, and like others, I never turn the UPS off. I would like to see some power consumption figures in that mode. It switches two additional accessories, a high-end sound system, and the 28" monitor. Both use about a watt in standby. The display panel is really handy to monitor power consumption as the system is tweaked to various modes. The power supply of the computer is 750 Watts, and the Sound system is 232 Watts max, while the Monitor is 100 Watts Max. Most of the time in use the system draws about 300 Watts combined. I've only run this unit for about a month, but I had two others for about four years each, and this seems to be every bit the quality. Like others noted, the CD was not included, but I had downloaded the latest PowerChute version from the web for the prior system, and it just ran fine with the new unit. I do recommend APC to all my friends and associates.

I have been using the unit for a few hours and the previous reveiwers are correct - the fan is really noisy - much noisier than my PC. I can hear it from other rooms near the home office. I hope it turns off later as at least one reviewer mentions. Also, there was no software in the box - not a big deal since I downloaded it from the website. Apart from that, so far, everything is running as it should.

Does not work with a Mac Pro Tower

By 

from Zion Crossroads, VA

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

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?

Reliable as always

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

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.

BR1300G is best UPS ever!

By 

from Cookeville, TN

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

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.

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!

Another Excellent APC UPS

By 

from Arizona

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Purchased this via the TRADE-UPS program to replace an older APC model. As excepted it works great providing backup to equipment in our TV room. This is especially important for the DVR as we have frequent power failures (our electric company is run by the US Federal Government).

Saved Data Many Times!

By

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Purchased UPS as update through trade-in program. Very easy to use and like the display on front. So far has saved my data/session at least 4 or 5 times from blown fuses, and power outages. Works when you need it the most! Very happy with purchase and would recommend to others.

Nicely upgraded product

By 

from Canada

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Installed this in the server room today. It replaced an old RS1200 that ran for about 4 years without any issues. This new 1300 UPS has many upgraded features including a user friendly display showing the load and other functions. The trade UPS program is great -- it's main reason why I registered and jumped through all the hoops to write this review. One suggestion -- can you consider putting some lifting handles on the case? The unit is quite hefty and it would be useful to have something for your fingers to hold on to. Otherwise, this is a great product.

Back-UPS Pro BR1300G

By 

from Duck River

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Fourth APC unit purchased, and the former three are all still functioning on a daily basis. Replaced batteries on the earlier units, multiple times for one Back-UPS, and the electronics keep cooking right along. APC's Trade-UPS program provided a significant discount on the new unit, and I did not even have to surrender one of my functional battery backups; the nice folks at APC were happy with an old dud, not even their brand. New unit arrived fully charged, software install was a breeze, and all is right with the universe.

Effortless Power Security

By 

from Villanova PA

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Have used APC products for over 10 years. The Trade-in program is a breeze and saves the earth with its terrific recycle feature. Replace the old unit and send back the old one. The new 1300 is an improvement. We have frequent power blips. All computers simply have power to orderly shut down.

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Unit arrived in a few days and was put to use right a way. Had a short power outage a couple of days of putting this in-service and it worked like a champ. Had to power cycle the unit to clear up noise lines through the picture on the tv. Not sure if this is normal or not, but other wise works fine

Reliable Power Protection

By 

from Val-des-Monts QC

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

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.

BR1300G

By 

from Warr Acres, OK

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Previous model with similar features had outlived its usefulness; so, when calling technical support and after having them step me through the process of testing the internal battery the decision to purchase a replacement was made. The ordering process, the replacement discount program, the delivery of the new unit and the return process for the old unit all went perfectly. The new unit is working impeccably and the upgrades made over the years since my original purchase have definitely improved the functionality as well as the aesthetics of the equipment.

Works well

By 

from Central Massachusetts

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Used the to replace an under capacity UPS for a HT system centered around a 58" Panasonic Plasma and Onkyo HT receiver. During a recent thunder storm it worked perfectly, switching over to battery a few times during the power glitches, while the HT system didn't miss a frame or beat. It was comforting to know my HT system was protected.

One Great UPS

By 

from Oakville, Ontario, Canada

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

This UPS does what you'd expect: It supplies battery-backup power to your computer and peripherals in the event of a power failure. It also has a number of features that separate it from the competition. - Filters noise from the power source - Regulates the voltage (spikes and sags) without switching to battery power - Silent when charged, and respectably quiet when charging (contrary to earlier reviews) - Has switched sockets, both for battery backup and filtered only. This means when you power on your computer, your switched peripherals will automatically turn on. Similarly, when you turn your computer off, your switched peripherals will also automatically turn off. (You can program the delay for switching on and off). This is great for external hard disks, monitors, etc. - LED display with lots of functions, including backup time available (based on load), percentage of capacity used, etc. You can change most of the settings from the front panel. Even more flexibility is offered using the included software. - Very configurable, with useful default settings. Set how sensitive the UPS is to power fluctuations, event reporting, alarm on/off, etc. - Attractive designer styling that looks better than many computers, and would be welcome as part of a home media system. This unit is a winner all around. It comes across as a premium product, but without a premium price tag. Highly recommended.

Works As Advertised

By 

from Eudora, KS

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

I have had this unit for about a month. It has connected to it a Dell Desktop, HP Elitebook laptop, 6.1 Dell sound system, wireless router and several small peripherals. Only hardware I am unable to connect to it is the Brother MFC (MFC-9840cdw). When I connect that printer I get a error message as I think it pulls a lot of voltage on start up. Other than that, the system seems to work well and does what it was advertised to do.

Functional, Beautiful, and Some Great Features

By 

from Oakville, Ontario, Canada

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

This UPS is winner. It arrived with a fully charged battery, and runs silently (when power is available). And of course, it provided uninterrupted power from batteries when the power fails. Very welcome extra features include (a) AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation), which outputs steady power even when your mains sag or spike, without having to switch to battery, (b) an "Eco" mode that automatically switched auxiliary devices, such as your monitor, printer, and external storage on or off as you turn your computer on or off, and (c) a multifunction display that tells you everything from how much time you have left to run on battery power, to how much of your UPS's maximum load you are using. Round it out with beautiful styling and you have an all around winner.

Big Step Forward

By 

from Fort Myers Florida

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

I am a long time user of APC products and a firm believer in back up power. We spend a great deal of time in Florida, Lightning Capital of the World. Enough SAID. Any APC product will do but these new models are outstanding in many ways. Do not neglect the little things that protect the bigger investment.

Back-UPS Pro 1300

By 

from Southern Ontario

Comments about APC Back-UPS RS BR1300G 1300 VA Tower UPS:

Another excellent product by APC. I like all the improvements over previous products: the LCD display, added outlets, attractive black styling. MOST IMPORTANT to me is the *exchange service* that gets these babies out of the landfills and recycles at least some of their parts reducing the carbon print of mining and making new components. That is a costly but responsible service on the part of APC. Having said this, I did not see an exchange opportunity on my latest buy. APC are you listening? Don't stop advocating for a better environment.
