Not usually. Power factor = Watts / Volt-amps

I assume simulated sine wave isn't ideal for PCs correct? I have the CP1000AVRLCD and it'll just cut off anyway, despite having the UPS. Even replaced the battery since it said battery capacity error.
I used simu sine for years on my PC. It's most likely your hold-up Capacitor not being up to spec. My PSU was an EVGA 850-GS which had one of the best hold-up caps according to reviews. Getting a Pure Sine or PFC compatible "might" help but only if it is faster than your hold-up cap runs out of juice.

You would think. But in devices like this there is always "losses" in efficiency. Marketing uses VA which is what comes out of the wall (watts) but you have to look at the actual Wattage rating after power factor like other user said to see what actual wattage you can pull on the unit. e.g. 1500VA will pull 1500W at the wall but only power a 900W PSU in a desktop

It is for DC power, but not for AC. Full explanation here. [wikipedia.org]

Only for a purely resistive load. When the current and voltage are out of phase, the watts is lower than the volt-amps, and that difference is identified as what is called the "Power Factor".

Active Power Factor PC power supplies adjust that power factor so wattage is much closer to volt-amps than a non-PCF power supply, for (generally) higher efficiency, and for lower power line losses.

Would this be good for a living room setup? (large tv, xbox, router)
1500 volt amps at the rated 120 volt AC input is 12.5 amps of power.... or 1,500 watts. This unit's battery is rated at 9,000 mAh or 9 amps or (9 amp x 120v) 1,080 watts for one hour... but that is at the battery, because the rated output is only 900 watts, which tells me that that between the input of 1,500 watts and the output of 900 watts, there is a lot of loss. Nevertheless, 900 watts is what you get. All of those 120v outlets look impressive, but just one could overload the UPS.

You will have to add up your total load and then find the UPS that outputs that or more. As above, Input vs output on UPS is not the same thing... I doubt if this will run a TV of any size and if it does, not for very long. It will run the average computer/xbox and router for long enough to save information and shut down.

There you go... Input is the selling point, while output is what you need to know. Most PC's are 550 watt or less, so this will work with 900 watt output, but one needs the total load.

I had no idea why there are ten 120 volt outlets on the back of this UPS, but enlarging, five are for dedicated surge protection and five are for surge protection plus battery backup. Surge protection is worth something...

My LED TV is about 140W. My dual GPU w/ AMD 3900x is around 600W right now. 1000W PSU.

i have purchased several of these units from costco (store, not online) for roughly this price so this isn't a good deal per se. also, they suck in terms of battery life.

Buyer Beware.

My last one of these "F03" error.

Google it.

It's not worth the trouble IMO

In my experience I get the APC batteries to recover after a full depleteing, which should not be done. Cyber Power now shows lower capacity. Not sure if APC is INNACURATE, or if CPower batteries are lower quality. I am sure someone has tested this on YOUTUBE, BUT good luck finding the unpaid guy that will show you the battery inside. I would guess that Cyber Power maybe using various vendors with a fluctuating quality level of batteries, and APC has a tighter supplier and better batteries more often. IF APC was fudging their reading, then THAT would be something to expose!

Simulated...notice how they left that part out of description...I currently have the CyberPower GX1325U which looks just like this one bought in March 2019 for $118 from NewEgg. Zero issues. Fantastic... Pure sine..

Today's price is $189. You got a deal!

They have some BS method of calculating wattage. Yes, a Volt Amp is a Watt, but apparently that is assuming 100% efficiency, which these do not do. Some also refer to it as power factor. Most devices use part of the sine wave. For that reason, I refer a VA as a vili-amp (say it with a Russian accent for a laugh.)

Makes sense... no separate game box, no tv cable modem and no external speakers, you might get half an hour out of this 900 watt UPS and have surge protection.... you don't want to run these UPS batteries dead and as time goes on, their output is less and less.

Small UPS's were not designed to be a generator, per say, but more to give you time to shut things down when a power outage is going to be awhile. But, with a couple of lithium battery backups, or a solar system, this could work out.. albeit a bit inefficient with 1500 watts in and 900 watts out.

I do like the extra surge protection from the utility company... which they will deny, but if lightning hits close, no surge protector seems to help.
