This UPS works well, supporting the computer for a significant amount of time.

My problem is with the PowerAlert Console software that interfaces with Windows7. The UPS connects via USB, but isn't compliant with Windows7 to be considered a UPS. One must run the PowerAlert software that comes with the UPS. There are a few problems with the software:
1. You must set up the UPS every time you plug the same UPS in a different USB port. The software gets confused between an old installation and the current one (or at least the user does), as the USB will have multiple entries, one for each USB port you ever plugged it into.
2. The software does not report the runtime.
3. When I tested the software once, by unplugging the UPS from power. The computer lasted a long time, but, in the end, the software never sent a shutdown to the system. Thus, the system just stopped without a gentle shutdown.
4. Once shutdown and power is restored, the machine doesn't automatically turn back on. One must physically go push the button, which is hard (impossible) to do remotely.
This software has more options than Windows built-in battery utility, but it obviously requires more messing around than I wish to invest in order to get the UPS working correctly.

I am in communication with TrippLite Support, which exists and is available, but it is time-consuming.

I bought this UPS to replace a several year old ups protecting a small office file server in a quiet office. After a few months of use, noticed a clicking sound coming from the ups - like a fan starting to go bad. Sound was irritating the office staff. I called tech support - the first tech insisted the problem was with our AC power. Had to go get a multimeter to prove to the tech that our AC power was at proper voltage. Then additional troubleshooting (disconnect battery with difficult to access connectors, reset, and reconnect). Finally talked to another tech who agreed to swap out under warranty. Plugged in replacement (refurb?) unit and immediately hear much louder clicking noise. I'll be calling tech support again tomorrow.

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

I have an office full of TrippLite UPS units we put in 3 years ago; and they've done their jobs when we've had brownouts, blackouts, and/or "blips" in our AC supply.

I've had a couple units fail on me after 3 years; and had rather hoped for longer life; however on the positive side, I was able to get both units back on-line quickly and inexpensively, by replacing the non-proprietary batteries with economical off-the-shelf replacements. If the rest of the units give me four years, I'll consider that gravy.

Overall, I would say that TrippLite gives a good value, and provides good equipment, for the cost.

Top Notch with Hidden Benefits

By

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

Every time we add a new computer, we purchase another Tripp-Lite OMNIVS1500. We are located in Florida and especially during the summer season there are brief interruptions and our Tripp-Lite's have never failed us. Plus, we have found our computers last longer because the constant voltage feature of this model protects the sensitive electronics of our computers from power current fluctuations. And this is the "hidden benefit" that keeps working 24/7.

Over 5 years old now

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

I've had my OMNIVS1500XL for over 5 years now. I have two desktops, a router, modem and a monitor all on battery power. I don't need a long duration for it as we have a home generator as well. But this thing just keeps on trucking.

I'm writing this review as I had to look up the battery replacement number for the UPS as I've yet to replace the battery and have been meaning to for the past year, just in case.

Conditions it stays in are just a home office, but we average a good 7-10 brief 1-2 minute power outages a year easy.

The only negatives I can come up with is that the beeping when it switches over to battery is loud (wish there was a way to just mute it as I couldn't care less to know when it switches to battery). And then the fan can kick in and be relatively noisy, but nothing that's unbearable like some have stated.

Also TrippLite support is always awesome.

Fan is terribly noisy when on battery AND when on line voltage

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

New unit just arrived today. I plugged it in and immediately heard fan noise, like a low squeal, as if the bearing was going bad. I left it plugged in for an hour to see if the fan would stabilize and quiet down. It didn't. So, I pulled the plug to shut it down and was horrified to here just how loud the fan gets when running on battery power!! I had no idea this unit even had a cooling fan. I own 4 other UPS units and none of them have fans. This was a major disappointment. I will be forced to return it as it was meant for my desk at work!!

I have been purchasing Tripp lite UPS units for about 15 years and I would be hard pressed to say anything bad about their products or their support for that matter. They have made a loyal customer with me. this particular unit has been working flawlessly for about 5 years or more. We also have 4 other various older units in our office. Thank you Tripp Lite!

This has worked perfectly--the few times I have had a power interruption I have had plenty of time to shut down and protect data. My only complaint is the lack of Mac compatibility for the software that monitors the battery.

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

I have had this UPS for several years, and it has just been fantastic. Power outages are just not something that I worry about anymore when I'm on my computer.

Many have complained about the clicking noise coming from the fan. That seems to be a result from how the unit controls the speed of the fan and is not a fault of the unit.

As an experienced electronics technician, the solution for me was simple. WARNING: Attempting this fix will void the warranty!

I first unplugged and powered down the unit. I simply disassembled it and soldered a small 10uf capacitor across the power wires going to the fan. The click was gone, and I have never had a problem since then.

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

The OMNIVS1500XL has plenty of power for PC applications, even when running a high-end gaming system. Six powered outlets and two surge-protected output cords are ample, and in addition to the usual telephone/network surge filters and the USB controlled shutdown port, there is a variable threshold adjustment to reduce the sensitivity of the unit to power dips and line noise. The real plus, though, is the option to plug in an external battery pack to extend the backup time. All in all, another great product from TRIPP-LITE!

Comments about Tripp Lite UPS 1500VA 940W Battery Back Up Tower AVR 120V RJ11 RJ45:

In Mexico, the electric current that feeds the small offices and buildings has large variations, especially in coastal regions, where heat is a factor that makes the company transformers deliver a voltage with very high or very low values that supports a computer equipment.

In my experience as a electrical consultant, I have observed that Tripp Lite UPS effectively protect electronic equipment connected to them. One of these is the OMNIVS1500XL UPS, strong, good protection, good backup time and easy to change batteries.

I've used in many environments protecting local network equipment and wireless network equipment, as well as computers, digital video recorders (DVR) and surveillance cameras, in conjunction with Tripp Lite power strip.
