    At last a quiet UPS, November 15, 2010
    Mr. Nicholas Reade Murray (San Fransico, CA) –

    This review is from: CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS 1500VA 900W PFC Compatible Mini-Tower (Electronics)

    First of all I purchased this UPS a little in the dark because I just could not find any reviews on it at the time; I guess it was a new model. I am glad I did, it exceeds my expectations… why?

    1.It is silent! At last, my old 1500VA UPS was not loud but the drone was always there, this little guy, not a peep, you can even silence all the alarms.

    2. Great load, I have 3x 27″ monitors and my all computer guff hocked up for a total of about 580 watts full load and the UPS is just fine with that (70% load), even showing 10+ minutes of run time if power goes out.

    3.It really looks cool, if these types of things can be considered cool, my old UPS was an ugly box with some LEDs on the outside, this little unit has a dark with white LCD screen (which was why I got this model over the older one) you can set it to read out whatever you like(Run time, load, VA, %, Watts, input, batt, output etc) and you have it on always or go off after a minute or so.

    4.Software, not that I will ever really use it I guess but nice to know it works first time (on Windows 7 64bit at least) have not tried it on my Mac yet.

    Over all I am very happy and cannot find anything about this product I am unhappy about, if I do I will amend my review.

    Appears solid, though slow changeovers and optimistic runtime, April 26, 2011

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I bought the 1000VA model in this PFC series about a month ago to replace a fading APC Back-UPS ES 725. So far, performance has been encouraging.

    My first impression upon opening the cleverly double-boxed packaging was that the picture size was deceiving. This CyberPower looks large. It’s not. It’s dwarfed by my standard mid-ATX towers. Eyeballed relative to one, it’s about half the width, half the height, and two-thirds the depth. Positively petite for a tower UPS and roughly the size of the APC it replaced were that one upturned. Extras include a short coaxial cable and an RJ-11 phone wire. Build quality seems quite good, and the appearance in person is an attractive combination of gloss and matte black. Once booted, the UPS is completely silent with mains power. It buzzes quietly when on battery. There is no internal fan.

    That said, let’s drill down the major features of the PFC series:

    Line-interactive – In the consumer world, there are three major types of UPS units: standby, line-interactive, and double conversion (“online”). Standby runs wall power straight to the device with minimal filtering unless it detects a major voltage change. Then it switches to battery. Line-interactive is the same, except with a filtering transformer between the wall and the device to handle most voltage variations. In an area with dirty power, line-interactive units won’t cycle to battery power as often. With clean power, there’s no practical difference between the two. Double-conversion means the battery powers the device and wall power only charges the battery. The isolation is helpful for sensitive things, but less efficient because the wall power is perpetually converted from AC to DC and back to AC. The heavy-duty inverter this type requires also tends to increase cost and noise.

    Some areas will have greater voltage fluctuation than others. If you’re in California and surrounded by industrial machinery, line-interactive or double-conversion is where you want to be.

    Sine wave – When a UPS with this feature is on battery power, the cycling frequency of the AC it produces will be a pure sine wave instead of a blocky approximation. Most devices don’t care. Some devices with a direct current path may care, as will electric motors and instruments that derive their timing from the power frequency. The majority of computers will work fine with any UPS, but certain power supplies with active power factor correction can have issues with the approximated sine output of lesser UPS units. If you buy a UPS without sine output, you’ll find out immediately if there’s a compatibility problem because the system will shut off when the UPS switches to battery. If the system continues to run, and it probably will if it’s older or inexpensive, you’re in the clear. Pure sine output is compatible with all computers and skirts the issue entirely.

    This UPS has a capacity of 600W and 1000VA. You can ignore the second number if your hardware is recent or expensive. In the grand old days when the real power use of a computer (W) was 40% less than the apparent load to the power grid (VA), it made sense to specify more VA capacity than W. Now, though, with power factor correction (an attempt make the ratio of W:VA closer to 1:1) standard for years, the actual load is likely to be 90% or more of the apparent load. A 200W computer will probably use 200-225VA of capacity. You’re therefore likely to reach the watt limit well before the one for VA.

    Here’s how the PFC models compare in maximum capacity, battery size, and runtime:

    CP850: 510W max, 1 x 7 amp-hours = 7AH, 8 min @ 255W, 2 min @ 510W
    CP1000: 600W max, 1 x 9 amp-hours = 9AH, 9 min @ 300W, 3 min @ 600W
    CP1350: 810W max, 2 x 7 amp-hours = 14AH, 9 min @ 405W, 3 min @ 810W
    CP1500: 900W max, 2 x 8.5 amp-hours = 17AH, 11 min @ 450W, 2 min @ 900W

    While the latter two have USB charging ports and are physical larger to accommodate two batteries, all four otherwise share the same feature set.

    Runtime doesn’t scale linearly with load. A CP1500 feeding 100W may well last 60 minutes. At 900W, it’ll last 2 minutes. That’s a factor of 30 difference in runtime for only 9 times more load. To ensure your system stays on long enough to shut down properly, the expected draw shouldn’t be more than about 70% of the maximum capacity. CyberPower’s software can be configured to automatically shut down any single system via USB or serial, though the comments attached to this review note that older versions may write excessively to SSDs.

    In my case, I’ve got a 12-drive file server, tower PC, router, switch, 24″ LCD, and 32″ LCD plugged in. The front-panel UPS LCD tells me that is an idle load of about 340W and 350VA. Projected runtime on my CP1000 is 6 minutes. A typical single computer and LCD monitor will draw 125W together. Gaming systems and larger screens, perhaps…
