Do not waste your money

Cons: battery life time
I bought this product "Ativa™ UPS Battery Backup With Phone Line Protection, 1200VA" fourten months ago for $80 and already batteries gone bad! It costs $70 to replace them. Not worthy.

Same as APC units

Pros: Battery Life, Easy to Use, Performance, Value for Money
The Ativa AT-BU1200 is the same as the APC XS 1200 ....... got to looking at them in the store and noticed they were identical.......and to further prove it, the Ativa can be registered on APC's site ..... the model # and serial # are accepted......the serial # is in the same range as one of my other APC units. Also, the Ativa works great with the APC Power Chute software. I got mine for $99.99.....which was about $60 cheaper than the APC version.

A little lacking, but ok given the price

Pros: it is cheap
Cons: you get what you paid for and nothing more.
I wish the documentation included a bit on how it will signal the computer to shutdown, or a link to software to controll it.
Before buying, I saw that it had a data port, and assumed it would handle this. Not a word of it in the documentation or on the website.
Technical support is weekday, business hours only. If you are doing a Saturday installation, you are out of luck.
