Works great

Bought this to run my small home file server.
Like has already been mentioned it uses the power cord from your PC and had two extension cords to go from the unit to your PC/monitor. The first step in the instruction has "Your computer’s power cord." and an arrow saying where to put it.
The only problem I have is that my monitor is hardwired for power, will have to get a plug and rewire the cable.

This may not have come with a mains cable - you use the one that your PC has now. The connectors are straight through male/female connectors. Unless the last reviewer had one designed for abroad then you should have no problem. I have bought a number of APC UPS's in the past and they are worth every penny. (You normally get two straight through leads with the UPS - enough for tower and monitor

Not suitable for most home/ office situations

Based on the previous review, I bought one.

I having unpacked it, there is no cable for connecting it to a UK power supply and the sockets are not the normal type for the UK i.e. I would have to buy different power cables to connect each device: computer, printer, etc.

This is mis-represented as a UK product and unsuitable for most UK home/small office situations.

Don't buy it unless you know how to connect it to your equipment.
