What customers say about "Features"
APC (BX950UI) 950VA Uninterruptible Power Supply
  • Works a treat to protect my PC against power outages.
  • Win10 compatible with interesting and useful software. Protects you from everything.
  • Works as described and gives basic protection.
  • Frustratingly this took down all the devices it was there to protect!
  • No USB cable included (Frustrating!) And you have to download the software as none is included.
APC (BE700G) 700VA Uninterruptible Power Supply
  • I have not used any of the other features of this device, it works, it is a good UPS for what it is.
  • Feature is called "killpower" and it shuts the ups down (after 2 minutes) when the computer is hibernating during a power outage.
  • The addition of a ‘master switch’ outlet to regulate usage is a nice feature.
  • Also just to clarify the warning alarm can be silenced (via powerchute) on the models with the Ecosaver feature.
  • The ECO feature meaning that the ECO sockets will only have power when the device in the Master socket is powered up.
