Just want to input my two cents, I am no expert but i definitely did my research on these due to my recent obsession with battery back up's lol.

This not Pure Sine wave, so it's good for lights, okay - not so okay for desktops or computers. If you are looking to have your lamps and routers connected to this,maybe a desktop if you want to just have time to save your files, I would recommend it due to it's lower cost than costco and free giftcard (that you may never end up using)

But if you are using it for a high end 4k tv, audio system, or desktop you definitely want to get a Pure Sine wave back up battery pack like this, that was $125 on Newegg a couple days ago: http://slickdeals.net/f/9056931-cyberpower-gx1325u-1325-va-810-watts-pure-sine-wave-10-outlet-mini-tower-ups-for-124-99-more-free-shipping-newegg-com?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

And people keep on taking about AVR, for those of you who didnt know what AVR means, it means Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) which is used correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, which extends battery life. AVR is essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently. This definitely recommended for desktops and high end devices.

Here is some information on the different types of battery back up's:

Sine Wave - Utility Power & High End UPSs
The pure sine wave is the ideal wave form for both equipment performance and longevity, and the form you typically receive from utility power providers. Electrical energy smoothly alternates between negative and positive, allowing equipment to operate without undue stress at a consistent voltage with few high frequency harmonics. High end UPSs such as Minuteman's Endeavor series produce true sine wave power through an AC-DC-AC conversion process, while the EnterprisePlus Series use automatic voltage regulation to produce it.

-Pros:
Great performance
Safe for sensitive equipment
-No effect on equipment longevity
Cons:
Increased cost

Simulated Sine / Modified Square Wave
The modified square wave is a compromise between cost and power quality. While not ideal, the modified square wave has peak voltages close to a pure sine wave, and an overall shape which closely resembles this ideal form. This allows the modifed square wave to behave favorably with connected equipment, while keeping manufacturing costs close to that of square wave equipment. Many of Minuteman's standby and line interactive UPS models make use of this architecture to maintain a balance between performance and cost.

-Pros:
Similar performance to utility power
Close overall voltage output
Manufacturing cost significantly less than true sine wave
-Cons:
Can cause irregular operation on highly sensitive equipment

Square Wave - Low End Power Equipment
Square waves are typically produced by lower end power equipment, and by nature put greater strain on connected equipment. Peak voltage of this wave is lower than a sine wave of the same total power output, and the waves can also contain dangerous high frequency harmonics not present in a sine wave. Equipment running on square waves can experience operational problems, including heat build up, and possible premature failure,

-Pros:
Significant manufacturing cost savings
-Cons:
Decreased equipment longevity
Equipment operation problems


Long story short, I was going to buy this for my desktop but I realized it's simulated sine wave not pure sine wave, i rather spend the extra dollars on a pure sine wave and wait for a deal to come again like the newegg one, which it will as always. lol
I like essay your essay format. introduction, argument with research, and conclusion. takes me back to high school :p
My research suggests this brand is better than the APC I purchased because it has the better sine wave. Beware that these units only run a short time as a backup because the inverter uses a lot of the power. I originally purchased my unit to run only our alarm system but then verified it would not supply power for very long. Converted the use to run the modem/VoIP phone. Just be aware that these do not run for very long on batteries. In conclusion, if I were making a purchase for a UPS it would be this one at this price.

Can I use it on AV receiver to get clean power? Will I have to change battery in 2-3 years if that is the only intent?

You will probably have to change the battery (x2) in 2-3 years like any other UPS. That's just the way that SLA battery technology works.

My CyberPower UPS (1000VA/600W) is 4.8 years old and I still haven't had to replace the battery yet. The runtime obviously isn't as long as it used to be but it's still working just fine. This is a good brand. I am thinking of jumping on this deal.

I have a desktop computer that I want to protect with a "short-term" UPS. Meaning I'm not concerned about keeping it running during 45 minute power outages... I'm mostly concerned about the quick flickers caused by lightning strikes, voltage spikes, etc. Is this as economical as I am going to find for a UPS or is there a better option?

can any expert point out the difference between this and the AVR series please? I just bought the AVR one from Amazon and this look like a better savings.

What's the difference between this one vs Costco one?

AVR is just as or more important to me than sine wave. If you suffer from frequent brownouts or fluctuations you owe it to yourself to make sure you get something with AVR
