Comments about American Power Conversion Apc Back-Ups Es 8 Outlet 550Va 120V:

I got 2 of these, which arrived in a separate package, quicker than the rest of the order, and I have them daisy chained together for a little extended UPS for my server. I need to test it out to see what kind of times I get, but it works.
