As far as what this box is designed to do, it's great. Plenty of power for my Mac Pro workstation, two monitors, and a few external HDs. In fact, when I push the system and render using all 16 processor cores and simultaneously write to every connected drive, it only puts a 47% load on the UPS. HOWEVER, this system is set up in my home office across the hall from my bedroom, and the fan on the unit is just to loud for this type of environment. I can hear it over the central air conditioning. The fan has 2 speeds, but for some reason it tends to run at high speed for about 5.5 minutes, and then 8 seconds at low speed, cycling back and forth. It even does this when nothing is connected to it or powered on. Had I known this before I bought it, I would've gotten a smaller fanless unit.

This ups is very solid ups I have been using smart ups 1500's for years now. This new model how ever has a change on the front panel. The old UPS had a LED scale for both battery level and load level so you can quickly see the status. Now with the new LCD panel all you get is warrning lights. If you really need to know the status you have to scroll through on the LCD panel. This is fine if you have one UPS I have about 8 of them in a server room I like being able to see the status of all 8 with one quick glance. If it wasn't for the new design I would have given it a 5 star ratting.

Awesome - Does the job!

By 

from Edinburg, VA

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

Purchased this unit for my home business. I am a graphic artist and photographer, so I have a lot of equipment that is connected including a mid 2010 iMac 21.5"/Intel 3.6gzh Core i5, second Apple 20" display, Epson Scanner, Drobo 4 Bay, Seagate 2TB External HD, plus my internet modem and Wi-Fi Router. Have had quite a few power outages since adding this unit, some that lasted a few minutes and some that lasted for a couple hours, each time everything has stayed on and allowed me to shut down properly, so it does the job. I especially like the load readout and available battery percentage readout, great for those outages so you know how much you have left and when to shut down when it's getting low. All in all very pleased, great product!

APC Smart-UPS 1500VA

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

When my Smart-UPS SUA-1500's battery expired after five (5) years, I replaced it with an SMT-1500 via APC's Trade-UPS program rather than just replace the SUA-1500's battery. I've installed the SMT-1500 to manage power to my workstation, NAS device, and router. I've interfaced the SMT-1500 to my workstation via the USB port. My new SMT-1500 is functioning flawlessly, just like its predecessor, but with a far more advanced LCD display and control panel.

The product is great, but the customer service is even better. I decided to change my order before it shipped. No problem for APC ! The change took place without a hitch and the APC sales people were very polite and helpful.

SMT 1000 for home office

By 

from Toronto, Ontario

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I upgraded from my old UPS to a smart UPS model SMT1000. I was extremely happy with my previous APC UPSs and I am equally happy with the new hardware. The replacement program allowed me to recycle my old UPS and get a discount on the new UPS. It turned out that my computer required a real sine wave so that narrowed the UPS models that were appropriate. Thank you to the gentleman who mentioned this in his review. Installation of the hardware was fast and easy. The documentation is very sparse, but technical support for sales and installation was outstanding. Since I only have one computer (with Windows XP Prof), I only needed to install the PowerChute Agent. Installation of the PowerChute 9.0 software was very problematic. The SmartUPS technical support staff, at this stage, were always knowledgeable, polite and logical. Unfortunately all our extensive efforts were in vain, until a new version (9.1) was available on the APC website. Once installed PowerChute 9.1 UPS setup was straightforward, but again the documentation was sparse. Once I was setup, I wanted to test my hardware with a scheduled shutdown. The shutdown worked well, but the CPU would turn on and immediately turn off, instead of staying on and returning to its previous state. With two minor exceptions, technical support quality remained high, but I was eventually told that I would have to restart my computer manually on every controlled shutdown. I was eventually able to fix the problem by changing the BIOS settings. Overall, I am impressed with the quality of the hardware, and now the controlled shutdown and reboot of my hardware works perfectly.

I purchased the SMT1500 because of experiences with power outages and voltage fluctuations. This unit has enough capacity to allow me to shut down without losing data.

Great Product & Features

By 

from Orange Park, Florida

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

The product works like a charm and all of the features and the added software are a real plus. I purchased this unit to replace a smaller one. I purchased a new computer for my wife which is a real speed demon without replacing the UPS. Big Mistake. The new computer is power hungry and the old UPS couldn't provide enough power. Every time there would be a spike, surge or a brief power interruption the CPU would shut down. I tried several times to "solve" the problem by removing more and more items plugged into the UPS. The results never changed. Eventually I had only the CPU plugged into the UPS with still the same results. Finally, I did what I should have done in the first place, calculated the wattage requirements of the CPU and the peripherals that I wanted to be covered by battery backup. I allowed a 15% safety factor and ordered the APC Smart-UPS 1000VA LCD 120V. It laughs at spikes, surges, power drops and failures and allows me a minimum of 30 minutes of uninterrupted power during power failures. Living in north Florida these things are a fact of life, particularly during the hurricane season.

It was great that I ordered this product, because a couple of days after I installed the product, the Florida weather changed to lighting in the afternoons. The APC Smart-UPS 1000VA LCD 120V saved my old computers ... :) Kudos .... Thanks.

Great UPS

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

My previous APC model hit its shelf life, thus I took advantage of APC's trade-in/up program. I purchased the Smart-UPS 1500 for my 12-Core Mac Pro workstation as I needed a Pure Sine-Wave UPS. At first there was a noticeable hum from the system, however this diminishes quickly after initial usage. My only complaint is a lack of OS X/UNIX software, however OS X has a decent built in UPS/Energy management system. Otherwise, for heavy hitting I recommend this product. Additionally, customer service is stellar. I had initially purchased the incorrect UPS; as it was already sent customer services rep's worked with me in making certain the correct unit was sent and a return was accepted. I couldn't be more satisfied.

Great UPS But..

By 

from Grayson, GA

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I replaced an old Smart UPS 1000 the caused the batteries to almost melt and cause a big stink that took days to go away. The front display is very useful. My only complaint is very audible hum. I have never had an APC UPS that was noisy until now. If there was no loud hum I would have given it 5 stars.

Poorly placed outlets

By 

from Charlottesville

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I recently purchased the APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V for use with our servers and network switches. Upon installation I was disappointed to find that I could only use 4 of the 8 outlets due to the poorly designed layout of the outlets (especially since it is more expensive for more outlets). I am happy with everything else about the product but feel this design flaw is a huge oversight (and I am really frustrated about it). I would not recommend this product if you need over 4 outlets unless you have only have typical 3-pronged plugs.

Extremely Noisy

By 

from Michigan

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I have a Dell Studio XPS 9000 which will not run on a normal power back up. My Dell requires "sine wave" power which the 1500 delivers. The 1500 kicks in as expected during a power outage or brownout however this unit is extremely noisy. The fan runs practically non-stop 24 hours a day. My unit's fan may shut off for a second or two then continue to run several minutes. This product is best used in a warehouse away from office cubicals due to the noise.

Best of The Best UPS for Small Environemnts

By 

from Bremerton, WA

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I purchased a new Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120 to replace an older Smart UPS and I consider this device to be one of the items needed to ensure a proper IT environment and to safeguard the investment in IT hardware. With two NAS, Three External USB Drives, Switch, Router, one small server and a larger Hyper-V Server, ans this UPS is under 40% utilization. The peace of mind in knowing that the devices are safe from a power spike and power properly conditioned, is worth the money invested in this UPS. Oh and by the way takes 2 minutes to set this up!

Industry gold standard

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I've used this product in all it's incarnations over the years. No matter how they make the chassis look, the APC Smart UPS 1500 is a rock solid reliable UPS. For many years I was a tech at a small PC repair company, I would do hundreds of service calls a month to different businesses around the Pittsburgh area. I've installed this product in so many environments, it's difficult to count. 1-2 servers and a small rack and this thing is perfect. Now, being in an IT Management position, I'm using this product in my own offices and as always, it works great. With over 14 years in IT, APC is the only brand that has been in my A+ list the entire time.

Replacement UPS

By 

from Southern CA

Comments about APC Smart-UPS LCD Backup System, 1500 VA, 8 Outlets, 459 J:

I am a long time APC customer and needed a replacement UPS for a 6 year old box. The new features are nice and the new box is operating as advertised. One problem that I did have was a disconnected cable that prevented the LCD display from working. Called tech support and had the problem fixed in a few minutes. As of now no complaints.
