From Blinq.com, the open box Eaton PW5110 1500 VA UPS [blinq.com]. This is a slightly older model that gets a poor review at Amazon, but it has good backup time for a very strong price. Use for your audio gear or something else that does not require intelligent shutdown. See review at Amazon.

Pros: Long backup time for good price

Cons: May not work well with Windows 7 -- use only if you need power -- not intelligent shutdown.

Blinq.com seems to get decent reviews at reseller ratings [resellerratings.com].

The reason this UPS is so much higher than others is the pure sine wave it puts our vs the simulated on most. Some of the newer power supplies won't work correctly without a pure sine wave.

If you are on their mailing list, you can use code CP1500PFCLCD to take 10% off making this about $140. I have been watching the price on the cyberpower pure sine UPS's, but am not sure if I want to pull the trigger at this price. I remember the 1500 version going for about $150. Was hoping for a deal like that, but it may not come back around.

Nice addition to the deal. I was hoping to see that price come back around too but this is pretty good and it comes from Newegg so you also get their backing of quality which is what made me pull the trigger.

This is not a pure sine wave UPS which makes is incompatible with most active power supplies that are most common with new PCs.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is not a pure-sine wave UPS.

if you can finagle the price to be about $100 or less then its a deal until then just wait for some rock bottom pricing and mistakes Smilie

They seem to be playing tricks with the wording, as described in this review of UPS's:

Quote :
Besides being the smallest, lightest, and cheapest unit in today’s roundup, the CP1500PFCLCD is also the only unit that has not fully replaced step-wave with pure-sine-wave circuitry, instead opting for a modified triangular wave that CyberPower calls “Adaptive Sinewave” to eliminate the zero power state that has so often prevented step-wave units from working with active PFC power supplies. This basically means that users get the enhanced compatibility of a sine wave unit at a low price similar to many step wave competitors.

The description on the Newegg website reads as follows:

Quote :
CyberPower’s Adaptive Sinewave UPS with pure sine wave is the first to address the critical compatibility issues of non-Sinewave UPS products working with computing systems using Active PFC power supplies (ENERGY STAR 5.0 compliant).
The output is a pure sine wave and addresses the issues that step circuitry has with Active PFC PSUs.

I was puzzled by this too, however, as the actual review of UPS states it's really: Adaptive Sinewave UPS and that is also stated in the actual name of the UPS. Considering the price, there is little chance it was going to be pure.

Nonetheless, for the typical home-user, it's still a great buy. Something also illustrated by the actual review of UPS from Tom's hardware. http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...785-5.html

If 100% pure-sine wave is a must, then this is not the UPS to do it.

If you don't think it is a pure sine wave, then watch this video and judge for yourself under a load test with an oscilloscope. You might be surprised at what you see!

The descriptions given raise questions, but going back to the source http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/...FCLCD.html, CyberPower says its a pure sine wave output.

I've just recently started reading up on these, and I dont think I really need a UPS for my laptop, but more for my home theater (new HDTV, PS3, not sure whether to include my receiver). So I'm not really sure what I need, simulated or sure sine wave. Recommendations? Thanks
