Looks like this is good enough to shut down the equipment, not for sustained use.

This looks to be the same thing (with different model number) as this one for $64 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/CyberPower-...B004H1RRQI

Ugh, not having any luck processing this order.

Frys.com sucks. They haven't improved their site in 10 years.

UPDATE: Saw the "if you see an error message, use our standard server" link in the cart checkout screen, used that, everything went through fine.

I have no idea why Frys has to run such a stupid site, but in for 2 of these things.

My IT buddy told me I need one for the computer I built but I dont know what to get... My computer has a 750W power supply. I bought a cheap 350 UPS but it beeps at me when I run my computer... I guess it doesnt have enough juice? Any suggestions? Do I need a 750 UPS?

It will probably work fine, but if there is a power outage, don't expect it to last long. A 750W power supply doesn't usually actually use 750W, unless you are running multiple video cards on an AMD system, for example.

The best thing about a UPS is that it is a great power filter (at least the good ones), and protect your computer better from power surges and spikes than a regular surge protector. Way back in the early 90s, when I worked on industrial controls, we had a customer who was experiencing random reboots of our equipment, and swore, up and down, they were running a filtered AC supply to the control box, and that they had monitored the line quality, yada yada yada... I put a UPS on the panel, and the reboots went away. I later had a similar issue with a PC in my apartment... and again, introducing a UPS solved the problem.

Keep in mind, there are different types of UPSes... square wave, sine wave... some are "active" some aren't, but most of that isn't an issue with modern computer power supplies.

Beware of the beeps! I am having issues with mine beeping during game sessions. I have nothing else plugged in but my tower. My setup is a non-overclocked i7 4770, 2 hdd, 750 watt gold PSU, and an AMD 290x. When I had the stock GTX 645 I never ran into an issue with 2 monitors, router, and other misc things. After installing the 290x, I ran into the system either beeping or flat our holding the beep until I used less power.

Yeah, I can see a 290X taxing the power supply. I was just saying if you are running a modest system, it probably isn't an issue.

I've got a Cyberpower 1500 on my main system, which is running an i7 2600k, 32GB, GTX 770, and an 850W PSU. Of my 3 WHQD monitors, I only have one plugged into the battery side, so I can do a clean shutdown, though it probably would handle all three just fine.

Of course, the best way is to run everything you plan on using on the battery side through a Kill-a-watt and measuring the power usage, then picking a UPS that is 140% the VA rating of the wattage you are actually using.
