Tripp Lite UPS AVR900U

Pros: does handles the 900va well during power outages
Cons: turns off by itself
Purchased this item Jan 2010. This was my first Tripp Lite UPS I have ever purchased. The UPS seemed to be able to handle the 900VA requirement quite well during electrical blackouts and momentary interruptions. However after 2 months use, the item would start turning itself off for apparent reason which of course would shutoff electrical power to the equipment connected to it. There was no power outage or interruption of any kind to cause the turnoff. There would be no warning before it turns itself off, except for the 1 second warning tone during the turn-off. I performed a UPS self-test under load after each turnoff to check the status of the battery and backup circuitry and the results indicated everything is OK This has happened numerous times and I have since disconnected it and threw it in the junk pile.
I performed a "AVR900U turns off" web search and found that many other users complained about the same problem. Many users were sent replacements from Tripp Lite and the replacements had the same problem. I do not recommend this model, and now, am I am not so sure about the brand itself since this was my first Tripp Lite UPS purchase.
