This is a Simulated / Stepped sine wave device. Be wary as some Active PFC power supplies are not compatible.

I ran some tests on mine, so you could extrapolate to see how well this one might do. I have the 1000VA/600W version, though mine has the pure sine wave, not simulated. Not sure how much difference the pure sine will affect it, but you should get better results with the higher VA/W rating.

I have the following products attached to mine:
- Netgear router
- Two 23" IPS HD monitors
- Homemade PC with a 750 watt 80+Silver power supply, 2 HDD, 1 SSD, 16GB RAM, an i5-6600 processor, and an Nvidia GTX 950

Under normal working conditions (about 150 watts, per my Kill-a-watt), the management software says I'm good for about 35 mins. When I specifically set it to use as much power as possible (burn in software to max the CPU/GPU, plus multiple disk operations, ~260W), it still estimated about 12 mins. With the screens off and the computer idle (~80W), it estimates 45-55 mins.

Keep in mind, too, that if you do have a "high end" PC, then you may also have an active PFC power supply, which do not do well with simulated sine waves (you might get audible noises from the PSU, or it might not run at all).

Also, if you don't need more power at once but want it to last longer, you can always mod it with a deep cycle marine battery, like this guy did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S2cYtvOric.

how long would this be able to sustain a high-end pc?

I'd Google some UPS runtime calculators. That will help.

Really need a UPS. But I think I have to hold out for Pure Sinewave. TU+Reps

How many watts does your system pull, it all depends

I wouldn't use this for a high-end PC, the simulated sine wave would not be a great thing for any decent power supply. I'd recommend spending a little more on a pure sine wave product.

Haven't seen a good deal on UPSs on here in a while. Finally gave up and bought a worse model for more money a week ago. *sigh*

idk about ups's but ive scoped the signal on many converters and its not pretty at all.

im sure this is a decent bit better, but it would take an anstonimical leap from the " sine wave" ive seen on other converter products to make me buy anything other than something labled as pure sine wave.

if youre back up a router or something ok.

if your backing up any kind of data what so ever youre gonna wanted a pure sine wave. anything else is askibg for trouble especially with data.

Would this work well with a small generator?

How can I find out if my PSU is active PFC PSU? I have EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GS 80+ GOLD.

You could also use an ac/dc converter to connect a larger external battery. I do that when there is a power outage and I don't want to run my generator all night. I will plug the UPS into the ac/dc converter that is connected to a large deep cell battery. I then plug my electronics into the UPS. Gives me hours of power without having to run the generator. I then recharge the battery the following day when the generator is running.

The main purpose of a UPS is to give you enough time to save your work and shut down safely. If you want to run for a long time then doing what I listed above or adding a much large battery can provide that.

While this statement isn't wrong per se, it's important to remember that the only time this UPS will generate a simulated sine wave is when it's running on battery power. The rest of the time (i.e., 99% of the time you're using it) it will just be passing through AC from your power outlet like a surge protector.
