This unit replaced a APC BR1000G unit that died but saved our local network and office computers from a CLOSE lightning strike. The unit was shipped promptly, installed easily, and the Trade Up program was a blessing. We have used APC units for several years because they are well-built and reliable.

I have owned many APC power supplies for home and home/small office applications over the years. This unit sounded like a good upgrade to one old unit which had finally developed a fault. The power saving features and master control function seemed quite attractive for my application of a computer system integrated into my home theater room. The downside to this new unit did not become apparent until I plugged it in. The fan on this unit is SO LOUD that it is simply not appropriate for home office or home theater computer applications. The sound is so loud it would only be at home in a data center room dedicated to such purpose where all such loud fan equipment would be located. I even had it placed inside the cabinet which housed all the home theater equipment and it could easily be heard over the movies through the cabinet doors and ventilation system. This is just not practical in most homes. I returned this unit in exchange for the older rs1500LCD which only has a fan running when actually on battery power. I am sure that the fan on the RS1500G will make the components last longer, but you will not enjoy being in the same room with it in you home.

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

I am disappointed in myself for not having bought one of these years ago. One of the most frustrating "first-world problems" has to be working on a desktop PC to have the power cut off briefly, lose your unsaved work, and risk damage to your hardware. Lucky for me, I had this UPS on my wishlist and an Amazon lightning deal came out of the blue and marked it down with a very tempting discount. I have tested the battery backup on my gaming desktop, monitor, router, and external backup drive simultaneously and it works great.

Reliable - Efficient

By 

from Rhode Island

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

Just like my 'smaller' UPS review, I sell dozens and dozens of these things a year and they've proven themselves over and over again. When you don't overload these with too much equipment, I've gotten 20min+ out of them keeping my servers online while we lost power, has saved my bum MULTIPLE times.

The Best.

By 

from MD

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

We love this product for our customers! All of our small to medium businesses (5-100 employees) have at least one of these in their network/server closet. They are really easy to set up and work flawlessly. Plus they have a great batterie capacity to give the server and other equipment plenty of time to shut down safely without damage.

Technically good but not the best physical design

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

Good upgrade to my Back-UPS CS 500 that's still going strong after a battery upgrade. The thing I dislike about the Back-UPS Pro 1500 is how easily it topples over. APC would have been better retaining the classic dimensions, i.e., half the height and twice the width. Other than that, the power saving feature is a welcome bonus I didn't know I wanted/needed. This clever feature which, after it has been manually enabled and calibrated, fully powers down my peripherals when my workstation is off.

3rd APC purchase.. Going strong!

By 

from Central PA

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

This is my 3rd APC product purchase. Like those before it, I expect to outgrow it before having any issues. Of the 3, only the first needed a purely age-related battery replacement This unit is the primary and handles the Synology NAS (media server), both i7-class desktops and their monitors, and all networking. The secondary handles external drives for the NAS, one room light (desk), and mobile devices. This configuration permits orderly shutdown (UPS - NAS) and allows the HDDs to be free floating after shutdown of the OS. Total power consumption is approx 550 VA across the 750 VA & 1500VA units. Minimal runtime on battery is 17 minutes (tested). Power in central PA is unpredictable. On the clearest of day a power event can cause just enough interruption to 'crash' the NAS and force a restart. Recovering from abrupt shutdown is a long, time-consuming process while the RAID set verifies the file system (25 TB). A UPS of some time is mandated with a RAID-configured media server. This unit has been in operation 14 days, the weather mild (no snow), and has already had 2 events. None of the systems even noticed it. I've recommended APC to friends. One just purchased 3 BR1500G units for his office. Two blade servers and the file server. Enough said?

Good ... But

By 

from Silicon Valley

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

I think it's a great product, gives lots of good information about the UPS through it's front panel. I like APC products, have trusted them for more than 20 years. Here is why I gave it a 3 star rating, and only for this, other wise I would have given it a four or five, Mac OS X ins't supported very well. I can have good support if I am running windows or through open source stuff in linux, but it falls way short in OS X land, sorry guys, got to do better.

Product needs improvement

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

The Back Ups Pro 1500 must have a design flaw. I own several of these units. At least two do not power my plugged in devices in the event of a power failure. The devices they support are plugged into the labeled battery backup sockets not the surge protected only sockets. It is not worth the hassle of pulling these out of service until their useful life ends. I just hope no other battery back up units of the same model come in with this defect. For the units that do work, their run time with a standard PC plugged in is about 20 minutes. I was hoping for much longer run time than that.

Battery Hot Swap

By 

from Scottsdale, AZ

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

Does anyone have instructions or a link to a video that shows how to hot swap the batteries. My batteries only lasted two years, I got new ones and this device is advertised as hot-swappable. I do not what to power down my server, but could not find instructions for hot swapping the Back-UPS Pro 1300/1500 batteries. Thanks!
