    I have an older APC 1500VA UPS. Here's an issue I reported and their response:

    Reported: (loud) fan runs for four hours if there is any power interruption and about once per month.

    Response (Amarnath) - 11/23/2010 01:56 PM
    Hello Joseph,
    Generally, the firmware of the UPS is designed in such a way that, if UPS is unplugged even for a minute, fan will run continuously for about 3-4 hours.

    I hope that has changed. I still use that UPS but it's in a location where I can't hear it.

    Thanks, Ed. The odds of helping will improve if I don't let myself get distracted and actually finalize a purchase. (!!!)

    Cheers!

    It has changed at least on the models I have. In all cases the fan shuts off just seconds after power is restored or the self test completes

    I can confirm that it is NOT a pure sinewave model but while that was an issue with analog signals I really don't think it matters with today's digital signals. I have one of those on my PC and it works great plus I will also give B&H a thumbs up

    It looks like several outfits are having UPS sales at the moment...Amazon (adds sales tax), B&H Photo (no tax), and Newegg (no tax, I think)...here's a link to B&H Photo: APCBattery Back-UPS Pro BX1500M

    In case folks are curious what the difference between the BR and BX models are:

    What are the differences between the Back-UPS RS and the Back-UPS XS models (Does not Include BX/BR LCD Models)

    I don't know if they maintained the AVR difference when they went to the LCD models though, the BX LCD models have network ports, so that difference was eliminated.

    I guess the Boost only vs Boost/Trim distinction is still there.
    Just bought the BX1500G, but need some questions answered.

    Shouldn't be a huge deal unless you are constantly in an overvoltage situation when the battery on the BX will get more usage.

    I'm just posting because I had wondered in the past what the differences were. Initially I thought it was just which retail channel they were sold under.

    That's a nice UPS. I use one on my desktop. B&H has never been a problem for me.
