Hi, i bought an used APC 650, and it sounds like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw14sS2EntM

It seems to have the same problem: http://forums.apc.com/message/9498#9498

EDIT:

I solved by putting some plastic glue on this coil:

That's pretty cool!  I have an in-warranty SMX1500RM2U that exhibits some buzzing of its own and I may take a look into it after the warranty has expired.  Obviously, this is a fix to be undertaken only by those who are knowledgeable in the proper disassembly and reassembly of electronic devices and are fully aware of the dangers inherent on working on equipment with potentially lethal voltages inside and the necessary precautions to take while doing so.
