Carefull here..

The 1350 is cheaper but the replacement batteries are 70/each and it requires 2 every 5 years.

I paid $200 for the 1500 version. I believe it takes one replacement battery for 70. Long term it's the better buy.
To add some detail here... He is correct about it not cleaning up generator power. When the generator is generating power within the acceptable voltage range (usually something like 90-135 VAC), the UPS only provides surge protection and otherwise just passes the power through. If the voltage goes out of that range, the UPS kicks in and provides power from the battery.

You would need what is called an "online" or "double conversion" UPS. It takes incoming power and converts it to DC (essentially charging the battery), then on the output side converts the DC from the battery back to AC. These UPSes are considerably more expensive.
It depends on what you mean by "dirty" power. They can't correct a bad sine wave, but this model and the Cyberpower model at Costco both have AVR - automatic voltage regulation, so they can correct some voltage levels without switching to battery.
With a small generator, you will often get voltage dips and spikes whenever the load changes, so for instance if in addition to your electronics you are also powering a refrigerator or air conditioner, any time their compressors kick on, it will result in voltage fluctuations, and theoretically, a UPS with AVR will correct for this without switching to battery, but worst case they should temporarily switch to battery.
If you need to run sensitive electronics on a generator, I would certainly recommend using a UPS. They can't correct for all power problems, but they do help.

In case it matters to anyone:

Does it have the annoying beeping that can't be shutoff?

Battery life really depends upon they frequency of outages, and their length.

During periods with frequent, long outages, I end up replacing batteries every 2-3 years.

During periods with infrequent, short outages, I end up replacing batteries every 4-5 years.

I really miss the free after rebate offers... didn't have to worry about battery replacements. Stick Out Tongue

Is the Costco deal also a "BR" model (true sine wave rather than simulated sine)?

I'd say so, I bought 2x of these a few months ago for $150/ea. They kept my servers/wifi on during the fay (I'm in the mid Atlantic so we just had heavy winds/rain and brief outages)

Fun fact, these things (the 1350VA's at least) will REEK when they switch from line to battery power for a few mins. Left the house and came back to my dog hiding in the furthest room from the UPS' because of the smell. Make sure you have plenty of ventilation wherever you install these! I was lucky my server ventilation pushed most of the acrid smell into a plenum and out through the crawlspace
