Handful of people disappointed by the smaller ups selling out. For $20 more, you get a much longer lasting battery and a bit more protection. I suggest this is worth it!

Normal price marked as $159.99, save $24

Simulated sine wave.

If you're referring to the GX1325U posted earlier, that one is pure sine wave while this is simulated sine wave.

Adding Simulated Sine Wave to title will help save some people a click or two.

A good breakdown for people who need clarification between Pure, Simulated, Square, etc.

Sine Wave - Utility Power & High End UPSs
The pure sine wave is the ideal wave form for both equipment performance and longevity, and the form you typically receive from utility power providers. Electrical energy smoothly alternates between negative and positive, allowing equipment to operate without undue stress at a consistent voltage with few high frequency harmonics. High end UPSs such as Minuteman's Endeavor series produce true sine wave power through an AC-DC-AC conversion process, while the EnterprisePlus Series use automatic voltage regulation to produce it.

Simulated Sine or Modified Square Wave Form
The modified square wave is a compromise between cost and power quality. While not ideal, the modified square wave has peak voltages close to a pure sine wave, and an overall shape which closely resembles this ideal form. This allows the modifed square wave to behave favorably with connected equipment, while keeping manufacturing costs close to that of square wave equipment. Many of Minuteman's standby and line interactive UPS models make use of this architecture to maintain a balance between performance and cost.

Square Wave - Low End Power Equipment
Square waves are typically produced by lower end power equipment, and by nature put greater strain on connected equipment. Peak voltage of this wave is lower than a sine wave of the same total power output, and the waves can also contain dangerous high frequency harmonics not present in a sine wave. Equipment running on square waves can experience operational problems, including heat build up, and possible premature failure,

I use this to keep one of my routers, a smart things hub, a hue hub, a roku, a Blink hub and a 65" monitor powered during a power outage. Without the monitor on it'll last nearly 4 hours. With the monitor on it lasts a little over an hour

If you purchase through best buy via google express and have never purchased through them before, you could save yourself an additional 20% (max $20). So that changes price to $115. Cheaper than the 1325 on previous thread. Just a heads up!

I've been waiting like a year for the CP1500PFCLCD to go back to $120. Come on Cyber... I'll buy several.

As I understand the Sine Wave funtion is only available while on battery power. Can someone confirm that?

More or less. This helped me understand what I need more. I'm settling for the modified as I'm just trying to run a router, tower, hard drive, and light. https://blog.tripplite.com/pure-s...explained/

Have 2 of these running a large electronics setup for a music group - 2 synths, Amps, Yamaha subs and speakers, 16 mics, etc. They are great.

Cheaper at costco (129.99 online) plus costco has the updated model with more ports.

Newegg has the equivalent updated model as well according to this post:

Yeah I see that... and it's sitting at -2 votes, despite it being objectively a better deal than this one (not knocking this one, it's a good deal too).

But really costco is the best deal due to their return policy.
