"Buyer Beware!"on by Chris_in_NY
Pros Umm.. It's didn't burn the house down? HOW ABOUT NONE!
Cons Umm.. It burst into flames, maybe?
Summary Buyer beware!
I've gone through 4 of these in less than a year, and have spent more in RMA fees than I originally did on the unit I purchased.
Today my 16 month old son found the glowy button on the front panel, and just had to push it. The unit literally burst into flames. Flames and smoke shot from the sides and it took two other smaller surge strips, as they also popped.
Since when is a UPS supposed to burst into flames just because you switch the front-power off?
Had this happened while no one was home, say it just burst into flames on it's own, the whole place would have burned, as the flames did not stop until I yanked the powercord.
A smaller unit, of a different brand, plugged into the same electrical outlets as the Ultra, has been switched on and off about 1000 times by my two boys, without any excitment what-so-ever. This happens to be the first time one of them have gotten to the Ultra unit, and POP!
I'll never buy anything from Ultra again, you can bet on that!
