5 min runtime at 330w. This is only good for a very short power outage/ tripped breaker only.

More than enough surive a quick flicker.. and chances are your computer isn't going to be constantly running at 330W. My setup runs around 70W idle with 3 monitors.

I agree is fine for a small flicker or blip in power but not enough for someone needing to remote in to shut things down.

It has auto shutdown software included. This may not save work in progress, but should gracefully shut your system down. I'm nut familiar with the current software from cyber power.

Yes. A lot of these UPSs, when plugged in to a windows computer via USB get immediately recognized and reported like a laptop battery. As such, you can set Windows to hibernate when they reach a certain %.

I think this is only for a windows computer. Id still hold off until the smaller version goes back on sale for $27 if you are looking for just a bit of protection from blips, or a larger one for $60 if you need more time. This deal pops up every few weeks and this is the most lukewarm of the variations form B+H. Do a search on SD to compare.

70 watts with 3 monitors ?!!?! Bullshit. Each monitor is at least 15. Computers typically idle around 100.

Depends entirely on your setup. I used to run my desktop/monitors on a UPS (which now belongs to my server) and one of the last consumption readings I remember was right around 60W. I've since added the third monitor so 70W is an educated guess. You might be right about the monitors though - they might be around 15W each.

FYI: My server - a quad core, hyperthreaded Xeon with 32GB of ram w/ HDD+SSD only consumes around 30W idle.

I don't think your numbers are off

Pure garbage, Office Depot was clearing these out a few years go, some of them had the usb port covered with the wrong shell, some had no usb's. They have slm/small cheaper low capacity batteries inside them that wont charge after a year.

I've had a few of these die on me as well. The only place I buy CyberPower UPS now is Costco so I can return them when they inevitably die.

Nope...many systems can idle at 10-15w...add a spinning hdd to this system and its still under 20w...

most modern intel systems using integrated graphics idle at less than 25w....
Quite strong language you use for someone who is completely clueless.

That's a forum you moderate retard. Show me proof that you use 3 monitors all running under 70w on this magical computer where I imagine you just read comments all day because that computer has no other power to work.
