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'.

13 months later and unit is Dead! Unacceptable I used it maybe 3 times.

Peter, South Africa. 19 June 2017

So almost 13 months in and the unit is Dead. I guess that 12 month Warranty was up :(
The Software also started racking up the CPU to 100% with resources being consumed by the Javaw.exe process.

Pierre, South Africa. 16 May 2016

Works great for the price.

Marco, South Africa. 10 February 2015

Woks perfectly. thanks

Mike, South Africa. 24 April 2017

Bought one middle of May. Connected and tested for an hour with a 2% load level. All seemed good. Currently have my first power outage and it lasts ?0 seconds? then dies. Will be returning it!!!!

Michelle, South Africa. 6 October 2017

works great, just what i needed

Josh, South Africa. 18 October 2015

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

Hylton, South Africa. 22 May 2015

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

Renier, South Africa. 21 April 2016

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

Jaap, South Africa. 3 July 2015

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.

Albertus, South Africa. 29 December 2016

works perfect

Shaun, South Africa. 27 July 2017

The product arrived with no power cord!

David, South Africa. 20 April 2017

Great entry level UPS - of all the entry level Brands I have tried - this is the one that is the most compatible - Also runs perfectly when run on my home generator (some other brands can cause chaos with sync issues that wont bypass the Battery when the generator kicks in).
My only gripe - no way to turn the annoying beep off with a hardware switch - but all the other brands are the same.

John, South Africa. 31 July 2017

Faultless product and service. Good price.

John, South Africa. 6 March 2015

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.

Shaun, South Africa. 4 August 2016

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.

Dean, South Africa. 28 December 2016

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.

Rhonwen, South Africa. 3 August 2017

So far so good. Do not have any complains. Apparently the software does not work with windows 10 though. The UPS still works without the software. The software's purpose is to shutdown your PC if the power goes down. I am switching it off when I leave home.

Deon, South Africa. 6 June 2016

Great product, working as expected

Ronald, South Africa. 17 February 2017

Brilliant UPS, does everything I need it to do. Recommended!
