1* Legendary Un-reliability
Reviewed by Andrew Pauza on 15/04/2014
The tagline of APC is "legendary reliability" but this does not apply to this UPS.
We are just about to send our second unit back - the first one lasted about 4 months, the second one didn't even last a month.
The failure is on the input side and when the second one failed it managed to kill one of the HDD in the server RAID.
It seems to be doing exactly the opposite of what it was bought for.
