Pro Affordable automatic voltage regulation solution
In terms of hardware and electrical design, a line-interactive UPS (with automatic voltage regulation) is considerably more expensive than a simple standby UPS (without automatic voltage regulation). For around $88.89, a line-interactive UPS is quite a bargain. Line-interactive topology allows the unit to regulate voltage during surges or brownouts without switching to battery, effectively reducing the chance of premature battery failure.
Pro Great value for money
This UPS combines features such as automated shutdown capabilities, automatic voltage regulation and network line protection in an affordable $88.89 450W UPS. At 5.06 Watts/USD, it’s also one of the most efficient solutions with this feature set.
Pro Provides protection from surges via network lines
This UPS supports data line protection. This way, the connected systems are protected from power surges that can potentially come from those connections.
Pro Supports automatically saving data and shutting down
If your computer is running on this unit's battery and it's almost empty, the automated shutdown function enables all data to be saved and for the system to shut itself down.
Con Lack of an interface hinders control and monitoring
The unit only has a basic ON/OFF switch and two LED indicators. While it might be seen as a cost-cutting measure, even a simple LCD interface would have greatly increased the functionality of the UPS.
