fyi, it's generally recommended not to put printers on your ups due to the very high peak power draw. Can dramatically shorten the life of your UPS.

Damn wish it was the 1500 model. I missed them at 109.95 or 119.95 a little while back.

Anyone know what the difference is between this model APC Back-UPS 1080VA, and the equivalent one Amazon Sells which is APC Back-UPS Pro 1000VA? I can see that this model is 650W vs the Amazon one at 600W, but the Amazon one has "Pro" in the name.

The reviews on this one seem kind of bad too.

Anyone know if this is just as good as the Amazon Pro model? $25 savings is nice, but not if it is an inferior product for some reason.

The only difference appears to be the surge rating on the pro is 1103 vs 354 on the regular.

Wow big difference, anyone know how that applies in a real world setting? Is 354 enough or is Pro worth the extra $25?

Cyber Power seems to be better than APC these days. I have the 1000PFCLCD and have been very happy with it. Deals come along pretty frequently.

I've actually had nothing but good luck with APC and nothing but problems with the Cyberpower unit I own. But of course, sample size=1.

To add another sample size of 1: I ordered this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1
from an amazon lightning deal. 1 week after setting up plugged into my Home Theater setup (55" TV, 3.1 AVR, Sub) the power to our neighbor hood was cut. Came home to a dead UPS. Got money back from Amazon and they don't trust you to return it with battery disconnected so it's just sitting in my house till i can properly dispose.
I currently have 1x CyberPower 810W Pure Sine, and 1x CyberPower 900W PFC UPS running my gaming rig and a home server rack and have had dozens of blips with no issues. During the outage they held up for 10+ minutes while i shut everything down with no issues.

My previous APC like this gave up the ghost 2 years in. I have a Cyberpower now and it has been chuggin along for about a year now.

I have had several outages and I got about 12 minutes to shut everything down. That's 2 pc's and 2 lasers printers.

I can confirm that printers will significantly shorten the life or create reliability issues.

My printers are hooked up to one. A much smaller unit than these. Haven't had any issues.

In fact, if the cheap apc breaks sooner like this I'll just get another one to take it's place. It keeps my printers on for hours. When they turn off I lose ink. I do not enjoy losing ink.

By cheap I mean 20 dollar unit. It doesn't have to run the printers during operation. It's only job is to keep them on.
