[Help] ???Which UPS best suits me??? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I bought the APC 1500VA unit on sale at Bestbuy and it's an awesome unit! It tells how many watts are being used on the LCD panel and more. I'm able to run 3 folding rigs, an LCD monitor, a 4 port USB KVM switch, 8 port hub, and my DSL modem through it without maxing it out. I don't have to worry about short power bumps anymore now, which is why I got it in the first place. It's well worth the money IMO.

* Watch your back! Don't let the size fool you, it probably weighs as much as your rig!

I have a 900VA and I would never turn my computer on without it. I would recommend a unit with at least 6 outlets with battery protection (like the 900VA and 1500VA).

UPS' are worth every penny. I lost 4 motherboards in 2 years from lighting before I got my first UPS and I have not lost one since spending $40 on my 350VA (or something 350) at Best Buy 3 years ago. I sure hope noone here at OCN has their super nice rigs plugged directly into the wall.

Personally, I bought an APC BackUps 1500 XS....

http://www.apc.com/resource/include/...ase_sku=BX1500

Serves my needs very well and gives me plenty of run time on battery when needed (more or less, the UPS prevents me from losing data in case of an outage. I have enough time to shut everything down properly when it goes on DC power).

I got mine from Office Depot awhile back for around $100. Great investment.

As I am using 1KVA UPS by Apec ( or something ) but i am thinking of using Inverter rather than UPS. And yeah, they are way to expensive.
