I have not purchased one yet, which one is better suited for me? I want to use it as a UPS for my desktop, monitor, speaker setup. I have a semi-gaming desktop with a 1050 Ti GPU.

you don't buy a UPS with the intent of using it to the highest output. you should aim for a UPS that pegs you in the middle. using this UPS as an example...i went to the middle of the chart at approx 185W. that gives you a solid 10 mins of run time. that is more than enough for PowerChute to shut down your computer or your NAS. if you are looking for something to keep you humming along for hours after a power outage, you need to look at a 1500 unit

Neither of these is probably good for you. These are low capacity units, usually meant for just backing up a modem and router. The VA mentioned is load capacity, and not indicative of run time. The size of the battery controls run time, and it doesn't seem to be mentioned here.

Go to APC's site and look for the run time at full load to see how long it will keep your PC running after power outage, but my guess is that it will me very short for your usage.

Good luck!

They apparently matched office Depot's door buster of the same item. I got it for the 2-5 minute runtime at moderate load on my desktop. Enough to shut it down ASAP.

i have this and you are wrong. also attached is a picture to prove that you are wrong

you are confusing this with the near identical BN450 model which does not have a battery cover, but if you have a screw driver you can take the top off and perform the same replacement.

I use these to plug my dvr/receiver/tv/appletv into. Any kind of quick loss of power like we see in our neighborhood is buffered by the UPS. It's a piece of mind thing for me.

Your reply is BS. These are more than sufficient for a home PC. I've been using them for years. I typically have a PC, cable modem and router plugged in.

I would recommend the larger capacity one for a longer run time, but don't expect your equipment to run for hours. If power doesn't come back on in a few minutes, you will have plenty of time to shut down your equipment in an orderly manner. My power tends to come back on quickly, only occasionally requiring me to power down.

You only need to spend more for a UPS if you want to automate shutdown, or have more equipment. Most users will be better served by spending $30-$40 on one of these smaller units on sale than not purchasing a UPS at all because they're told they need to spend more.

It really depends on what the intention is for use. Considering he wants speakers connected I am guessing a reasonable use time while the power is out. Definitely won't happen. I can say I do have a 600VA model and I can get roughly 20 minutes run time. I however purchased mine so my PC would safely shutdown and not lose power during brief outages so it works great for that.
