True but I like instant gratification and simple returns if a better deal pops up.

Just went through a few of these units and they all have coil whine. Even picked up an older model G series and it had coil whine as well. My older APC units all work silently, not the case with these new units. Went through 3. One from retail, 2 from RMA.

I'd do some serious research before trying to use a computer/AV battery backup for a sump pump. I found one system which includes a battery backup, and it uses automotive batteries. A quick search online showed these figures for smaller pumps (figures are in watts):
* Sump Pump 1/3 hp 800 (Running) 1300-2900 (Starting)
* Sump Pump 1/2 hp 1050 (Running) 2150-4100 (Starting)

While the running watts aren't massive (not insignificant though), the startup is pretty high and would likely stress most small battery backups, much like a laser printer. That said, the starting amounts for the pumps are higher than the figures I found for typical laser printers.

And that's assuming you have a 1/3 or 1/2 hp pump. We have a 1.5 hp pump in the basement (the plumber didn't have a smaller one and just went ahead and used that one instead). I can't imagine what the current draw would be for that beast.

Go to home depot and ask someone there for some universal suggestions as most sump pumps come with kits already included with a battery backup. This probably would not even have enough juice to kick it on alone run it for more than a few minutes. I know there are battery backups you can buy but I cant think of them off the top of my head currently but almost all of them use a larger car type battery.

You would want a much bigger battery. I would recommend the city water backup system if you have city water which maintains pressure if the power goes out. If you have a well it dies when the power dies. At my old house in the country with a well I used a large deep cycle battery with a second DC powered pump which is higher in the crock and if triggered pumps out the water and sounds an alarm. Also I had to replace the deep cycle batteries under warranty at about 6 months of age. Finally I paid the extra to switch to an AGM deep cycle battery and that lasted 2 years until I sold the house. Also I had a second pipe coming from the second pump going outside so if there was a clogged or slow moving pipe the second would work.

If you think about sump pump problems there are a few situations to prepare for.
1. electricity out
2. pump failure
3. pipe clogged
4. water coming into crock faster than pump can handle

Think about the problems you are worried about and try to prevent them with your solution.

Keep in mind if you have city water and the power is out for the whole area for a few days the water pressure could go down too. Depending on whether the pumps the water company uses have generators.

Is it really noticeable? Does it happen all the time?

If you're on city water, you should consider a back up pump like this one [amazon.com].
