    Anyone that has paid hard-earned money on new generation consumer electronics should own at least one of these. Power issues (dips and surges) are disastrous to these items; protect them as your would your home or vehicle. APC has a great warranty and 3 year life expectancy. Wal-marts price is very competitive.

    Have used APC products for many years. This is my second time upgrading/trading in 6 units without issue. Work in an area that has often power "dips" and the units never fail to keep me up and running, or keeping me up until I can properly shut down for longer outtages. Recommend them to anyone!

    I thing is as good as the two 500U's that I replaced with the 550's. All of the various Back-UPS's that I have I only have trouble withn the batteries going bad. They do the job that they are made for and that is all that I can ask for.

    I plan to plug into this UPS a PC, monitor, inkjet printer, and external hard drive. Do you recommend that all 4 devices be on battery backup or just the first two? Thanks for your advice.

    • Should be just fine; check the specs on the PowerChute software to make sure it's compatible with W8. You should put the PC and the external drive on the battery-back-up side of the unit (some disk drives don't recover cleanly if they're interrupted); put the printer on the 'filtered' side of the UPS and possibly the monitor if you're not getting a long enough backup period to shut down the PC cleanly with the monitor connected. Since all these components vary in energy use, you may want to test the draw-down time when you're comfortable with the setup by simply pulling the mains plug and timing how long the UPS takes to run out.

    • You should connect your external hard drive to the backup system. It's okay to put the inkjet printer on the surge. Your external hard drive can lose the data in a surge ... I know, I have two external hard drives I use for backups (my business is creating web sites and publishing books so I have a LOT of data backed up, mine and customer work) ... and I lost the data on one of my hard drive backups during a surge, and the data on a plugged in flash drive (it held several gb of info). It was a cost to buy a new backup hard drive, and took time to backup that many gb of data. So by all means, plug in your PC, your monitor, and your external hard drive into the battery backup, and the inkjet printer into the surge section of the unit. It really works great and does a good job. I had my unit installed less than a week and had two outages (with surges) in that week and my unit kept everything safe. It also shut down the computer for me as I wasn't home when it happened. I was notified by a message on-screen when I came home, that the unit went off during a surge and the APC powered it back on when electricity was restored. The computer was operating as I left it. I knew the power went off the minute I stepped into the house as I had to reset some of my clocks and other appliances, but the APC kept my computer and hard drives safe.

    • Do not plug the printer into the battery-backup side!!! It can go on the surge side, but only delicate electronics (laptops, desktops, LCD TV's or monitors, External hard-drives, powered USB hubs, hard drive docking stations,...) should ever be plugged into the "battery"! Desktop, monitor, and external hard drive is okay!

    • I would do the PC, monitor and external hard drive and not the printer.

    • Yes, it does work with windows 8. Plugging all of them into the battery backup side will be fine as long as you don't exceed the wattage capacity of the UPS
