A UPS is not designed to provide continuous power, merely a window period that allows a computer or other user to finalise the work at hand and shut down. It's ability to do this is dependent on the number of devices connected to the UPS.
To establish what you can and cannot connect, calculate the total wattage you need to supply and ensure that the UPS you purchase meets that requirement.

Recently installed, so far it does what it should (note: always use a UPS within it's load specifications). The three pin plug at the back is great. It would help everyone to also show the rear view image of the UPS and not only the front.

If, like me, you find the included software too resource heavy, you can use any Mustek protocol supported software.
Personally a very simple and light program I use with the UPS is UPS Assistant from Softpedia
Simple small application that will shutdown or run a file after X amount of time when your power supply fails.
More options at Mustek download centre, these should work with all RCT UPS'.

Product works well, shuts my media server down using the software when AC is lost. Powers my router for about 2 hours. Only gripe is the software comes on a cd. I dont own a cdrom anymore on any of my PC's laptops etc, this is 2016 after all. A url in the manual to download the software would be perfect, its not even on the CD as to what software it is. SA 3 pin plug on the unit is great.

Works great for the price.

Good unit, works nicely and I could easily turn off the beeping via software.

Great UPS, Powers my 450Watt Basic PC & 19" Monitor for at least a hour before the battery needs to be recharged #eskom

Works well. Had it for about 2 months now and used it several times. No issues.

Unit performs exactly as it should, even if it lasts for a year only its good value! Also like the SA e-pin socket on the back.

This UPS is great value for money and for an entry level UPS the software is very comprehensive and my only niggle is maybe too complex for the entry level owner (Needs an advanced vs beginner check-box on install).
For someone like me that loves to customize and access every feature - the software was an unexpected bonus.
Unpacked - plugged in and up and running in a few minutes.
Another nice feature if a full size SA power plug on the rear so you can ups anything right out the box.

Works well, Does what I bought it for:
Protecting my mini server from Eskom and contractors turning the power on and off.
Software is really cool, like that it shuts down the PC when the battery power gets low.
Battery doesn't last long but that's not what I bought it for.

I've thus far purchased two RCT UPS's through takealot.com, one 650va and now this 850va for my second pc.
Both work like a bomb. Saved my pc's during unexpected power outages and the occasional tripping...
I highly recommend this make. Very simplistic, gives you more than enough time to save your work and shutdown, stops me from being suddenly removed from an online game as thanks to the South African three pin plug built into it, I'm able to plug in my router as well.

Solid little UPS and easy to set up. Note it does not come with a mains connection cable. Haven't had an outage to truly test it but purchased really just to give me enough time to save my work when outages do happen.

Great product, working as expected
