My main workstation UPS just died. Guess I better make a trip to Costco this week and get thet Cyberpower one. Beats the Tripplite 550 for $40 at Staples. We use the Tripplite 350 at work ( we buy them by the dozen literally and I swear they don't last as long as a comparable APC. Also they don't have a removable battery making disposal more of a hassle.
I wish Belkin had not left the UPS biz. Being in Tampa Bay, mine generally died within 2.5 years so well within the warranty period. Belkin would send me a new one for the cost of me shipping the old one back. Most of th time the new ones would be a bit powerful as well.

|Syndil||FYI the battery in a UPS will wear out, usually after 2-3 years, but they are replaceable. This should be common knowledge, but just in case...|

|qkslvr221||While not a "pure" sine wave generator, their emulation tech is advanced enough to not damage APFC power supplies. Solid units. I use the 1500VA version on an HX1050 Gold.|

Living in Tampa Bay and being subjected to TECO's regular brown-outs, this is an absolute must. I lost a 3 month old LCD Tv a few years back as TECO subjected me to 3 succesive brownouts in 2 minutes. At the 3rd brownout, the TV's PSU gave up. Luckily Philips replaced it under warranty.
The LCD TV and HTB unit in my bedroom are on a same J25. Both gotten when WorstBuy had them for $99.
I rather replace a $99 UPS than $1500 worth of electronic equipment. With TECO's track record, almost everything electronic in the house is on one UPS or another.

It will run all of the above for about 5-8 minutes, provided the TV is not on a pure white screen.
PS I used this UPS to charge my cell phone and run my fish tank's filter when hurricane Sandy hit and I lost power for 6 days. Not continuously of course. Ran it on and off and it lasted the 6 days. I have two of them.
