For those that care, this utilizes a simulated sine wave, not pure sine wave.

You dont want to open this pandora's box. I think politics is a less controversial subject!

Many people say that simulated sine wave is fine for modern PC's. I am in the other boat and have had issues with simulated sine wave UPSs and no issues with pure sine wave UPSs. I think what most people can agree on though is that sensitive electronics are more likely to have issues with the simulated sine wave.

What qualifies as a "sensitive" electronic device? In the interest of keeping my head, I won't make any suggestions, but I only use Pure Sine Wave UPSs on my PCs and home theater equipment. There is also anecdotal evidence to suggest that cheap garbage wallwarts have a hard time dealing with simulated waves.

Finally, the wave type is only applicable when the device is running off battery power, otherwise you are using the pure wave AC power from your wall.

Thanks, Disco.

I found that my house is in an area where it's likely to have power outages more frequently than normal.

Getting a whole home generator installed, this will help me keep internet going and save my computers. Thumbup

What appliances require pure sine wave rather than simulated?

Pure sine wave version was $100 just a week or so ago.

Some computer power supplies don't accept simulated because it thinks the power is dirty. So they will shut off of they detect simulated sine wave

Couldnt tell ya. I have I think 7 UPSs in my house from either CyberPower or APC ranging from 450-1500VA and all simulated sine wave with dozens of various devices powered through them. So far no device Ive had plugged into them has had any issue running just fine either off the battery or the AC outputs. So I really dont know where people run into issues and think they require pure sine UPSs.

Edit: I would say any modern PFC power supply unit and home theater audio processing equipment. Although I ran my 850W EVGA (SuperFlower) PSU on a simu-sine Cyberpower UPS for 2 years with no issues. I run my Home Theater on that same PSU now and it has no issues when the power blips.
So unless you have something that has a terrible hold up capacitor or something with a very bad power supply unit that is sensitive to excess heat that will build up by using a less efficient simu-sine I wouldn't worry about it.
Testing when you first get it and not when the power goes out and you NEED it is the best idea.
