Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this to replace an older model that finally failed after 15 years of use. This was brand new and setup was a breeze. I did have on hand a USB to RJ12 console cable for easy on-site configuration. It only ships with a DB9 (serial) console cable, you will need an old serial port on your computer to use this cable for config. I have several of these PDUs in use and they are rock solid and most importantly, make remote management a breeze.
This item is listed as the AP9562, but the image depicted is the AP9563. This can be confirmed viewing the manual on Amazon site: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000016474.pdf
As of the writing of this comment, Amazon list "surge suppressor" in the product's title. This is a PDU. For the non-tech savvy, this item is NOT a surge suppressor. Look up this item on APC's website for full details.
As a PDU, this APC is excellent. Outlets are high grade. High build quality. Solid, heavy duty metal enclosure. 15am breaker. No switching, no metering, no frills PDU.
Came with rack mount ears. Amazon shiping speedy and box in good condition.
I have purchased several of these for my datacenter. They are easily rack-mountable and are well-built PDUs. The mounting brackets can be used to mount the PDU horizontally or vertically. I would recommend this product.
