Bought this from Bestbuy in January for about $75.
I like the fact that is has a removable battery and somewhat of a space-saving design.
I have a pc hooked up to it with (normally) 150W load and the run time is approximately 20 minutes. My pc is a 1st gen i7 with a 600W psu, 1 ssd drive and 5 "regular" hard drives.
That unit ended up dying on me after about 6 weeks--it cut power to all of the outlets and just had a long beep.
Had to go through APC, but they sent me a warranty replacement in 2 days. That replacement has been running flawlessly since then.
Not sure if I got a dud unit from Bestbuy, but I would buy this again if I needed another --especially for $60.

How good/bad this APC? Can't find much feedback's around net.
Moved to new building with lots of power problems, looking for back up to protect nas, few external drives and mixer board.

Not to knock your post anything but all ups/battery backup units have replaceable batteries. This could be much more end user friendly to replace but that normally adds to the price of the batteries when mfgs do that.

Just bought the 600VA/330W version to run my TV/Audio/ShieldTV. Power went out for an hour 2 days after using. Came home and UPS was totally dead. Luckily Amazon refunded me as I couldn't ship it back. They don't trust you to disconnect the battery for transit.
Just my experience.
I have a 1000VA/600W CyberPower that has held up my gaming rig through dozens of outages and brown outs. I have another 1500VA/900W CyberPower that held up my 810W load for a few minutes while I shut it all down with no issues. Only the APC died, on first outage. With all device in standby

hey, you got free ups parts! it's unlikely that both the battery and the electronics were both faulty and since you have other upses you can just swap the batteries to figure out which was to blame. with any luck it was just a bad battery which you can replace! having an extra sla battery isn't quite as handy unless one of your other ones is on its last legs...

i've only ever had 1 ups (out of 7 over the last 14 years) that did not have a door or panel to access the batteries. That 1 was a tripplite. It looks like the current version does have a panel on the back, i guess back in the day they didn't think anyone would want to swap out the cells.

As far as replacement cells, I recently got 3 from batterysharks. The site is a bit sketchy, but they shipped fast and the batteries all seem to work so far. as far as i can tell, they pretty much only sell replacement ups batteries, but they were much cheaper than any other source i could find.

I bet that tripp lite could be replaced if you undid the screws holding it all together. I have replaced the batteries inside the larger car jump starter/air pump/flashlight combos via this method just fine. Less electronic and plastic waste as well as a cheaper 'new' jump starter.

curious if this would be good for my networking gear to keep it running during outage.

1 motorola cable modem
1 ubiquiti router
1 8port switch
1 Cujo firewall
1 NAS - but would just have it power down in event of outage.

How long would above run for during power loss?

Hmmm...wonder if it a common occurrence. I am just getting my APC PSU replaced under warranty...different model, but similar to this. Died completely 3 months after purchase and wouldn't ever work properly again after the first power outage. Would turn on for 5 seconds and then shut down and beep.

Yeah I just need to figure out if the board went bad or the battery. Caps all looked good when I opened it up but I haven't spent much time on it

Make sure you don't have power surges coming in from coax or some other place. The place I'm living in, took me a few kills on router, modem, and parts of laptop (all completely replaced or parts of it replaced) to realize that........

Yeah I don't have anything else coming into the UPS. And all devices were only plugged into the UPS. Thanks.
