Eaton UPS Previous Solutions

I still have two Toshiba 9000 series UPSs in our Phoenix data center. Eaton UPSs are inherently efficient. I replaced Liebert 500 and 600 series UPSs with these. The Liebert UPSs were about 40 percent efficient at the load level that we were at. These Eatons, even worst case, moved it to 90 percent. Toshiba would have saved me money. Any of the newer UPSs would have saved similar amounts. Just moving to a newer UPS saved me lots of money. View full review »

I've have some GE & APC units and I'll tell you the same thing I've told every one of those vendors: When dealing with a product at this caliber, I can't go wrong with any of them. If I buy a Mitsubishi unit or a Liebert unit, they're all good units, bar none. Each vendor will debate why theirs is better bet in the end all will do the job. The key is what is the right product at the time I'm going to buy which meets my needs. Who's got the best feature set, the richest feature set, the best price, and the best capabilities. What is the best return on my money at the end of the day. Once that's said, it really comes down to the service organization and the reliability of the units. I have had issues with all the products and I am sure everyone out there has as well. It's just I have had fewer issues with my Eatons than they have had with their other vendors. I also believe in standards. Once I've picked a product line, my first choice for the next unit would be Eaton. There are economies of scale having so many of them. It comes down to this: When Eaton comes out to service units, they spend two-three days, and can cover them all. I'm not having to multiple vendors and schedule visits which consume my time. I have one throat to choke, one contract, and one great relationship. As a corporation, they still have the flexibility to be able to deal with the customer in that manner. Today, their service and customer relationships are their biggest value, absolutely, compared to the competitors I deal with. The Eaton service organization is one of their strongest points.

The other UPSs we're using are from Eaton's direct competitors, which is Vertiv or Liebert. View full review »

We were using an older style, the 9315s from Eaton. But we've always been using Eaton UPSs for backup power. View full review »

We previously used GE. We switched to Eaton because we didn't have the best experience with GE. We had issues with their equipment, such as a failure. View full review »

We have different vendors for UPS. We have three or four. But Eaton is our standard, currently, because of the reliability and the reputation of the company and the product. View full review »
