Once again you have dropped the ball - whenever it comes to actually standing behind your products there is no contact until a "satisfaction survey" or a "we assume that your problem is solved" email arrives.
You are a bunch of god-damned thieves!

I was supposed to be put in contact with someone who would be able to give me a refund for the "battery backup uninterrupted power supplys" -- I stress that there are 2 (two) - a pair - more than one - that has malfunctioned from the beginning, and that have destroyed at least one computer of mine by continually switching to a low-voltage state and back again.

I have never been put in touch with anyone who can create a refund. Again, after a coupled of attempts, the matter is dropped and you go back to a previous email in this thread.

All of the questions that are in this email have been answered, at least twice. Somehow those replies have been selectively deleted from the questions thread. Trying to cover your a*s at this late date is pointless - i have saved emails you sent, and that i sent to you, both times you returned to this thread.

Now the only thing i want to know is, what is your address for legal service? It is obvious tyhat only a lawsuit - & i suspect that i can find enough other dissatisfied customers to create a class action. If not, you will have a lawyer in a pueblo, co court - and when it gets to court i will include the dead computer as consequential damages.

I'm sure that you will be billed over $500/hour including travel time - much more than it would cost you to actually be honest and refund my money that I mistakenly spent you your apc American piece of crap. Both were purchased at sale price, about $10 below your suggested retail price. The computer cost about $400. The lost data I can't put a price on at this - but if I charge at lawyer rates it will be in the low thousands of dollars.

Note that this email has been cc'ed to my business partner, and that excerpts will be posted on BB's rating electronic equipment. I con't know if they allow negative numbers in their rating system, but if they do you will get a minus 10 y\for your customer support/consumer satisfaction department.
.
Again - just so you don't forget - get me a check or the address for legal service.you have 5 business days - that is until the close of business on 2/1/08

<< issues with be500u, s/n bb0424029484>>>

since we started using it.

<<< and i am not sure if you have
answered the question about adjusting the sensitivity of the ups thru the
powerchute personal edition software?>>>
i did with the first one - it had no effect. Further that unit continued to behave the same way even when not conected to software, or anything else.

<< what kind of voltage meter did
you use to measure the voltage and what effect did it have on your
monitor and pc?>>
a simple multitester, just stick the red prong in one slot and the black one in the other. It had the same resuls in both orientations. The pc was not affected as it was no longer connected to this unit at the time. But the multimeter draws virtually 0 power, and i have used it in other appliances and outlets with no effect on anything else in the circuit.

< possible or your money returned?
>>
at this point just the money back. I wouldn't trust my electronics to an apc again - one dead computer in a year is enough.
