I bought one of these units at Costco the other day for the full $99 price, which is now going to go back now so I can reclaim $34.

I read the linked info on PSUs vs AVR and PFC versions. Does anyone else have any opinions on such things? Also, is this a concern for less powerful devices such as cable modems, network switches and firewalls, PoE WiFi APs, etc?

Thank you!

You can find out some more info about stepped sinewave vs. non-step here:
Whereas DC power shoots through electrical wires, AC flows like waves, oscillating up and down. To turn DC power into AC power, you need an inverter that makes those waves. Manufacturers market the cheapest inverter option as a modified-sine-wave inverter, but it would be more aptly called a stepped-approximation (or square-wave) inverter. Instead of making a true wave, it steps the power up and down quickly. For many electronics, this approach is okay, if a bit inefficient. But for some devices, square waves can cause problems, from buzzing you can hear with audio equipment to flickers in tube-based displays to melting plastics and mystery smoke. Perhaps counterintuitively, expensive electronics such as laptops are often fine with such inverters thanks to more-refined power supplies that can better handle subpar power.

Great deal for this unit at this price, albeit a few more hoops to jump through for it. For 99% of users looking to use this for their computers or networking equipment, simulated sine wave is perfectly acceptable. Only lab equipment, high end analog audio equipment, and the cheapest power supplies will have issues with this.

With regard to the power supplies, this is due to the cheap power supplies using undersized caps that cannot handle the milliseconds of time without power for the UPS to switch over. Pure sine wave models switch over slightly faster so it gives the illusion of the pure sine wave being the solution. You're better served upgrading your garbage power supply if you get a simulated sine wave UPS and it doesn't switch over during a power loss, for a myriad of reasons.

In my opinion it could be cause for concern if you run your PC on it for long periods of time, but I think in emergency situations which these are meant for, running it for a few hours shouldn't do irreparable harm, but I'm just guessing based on what I read. For me personally, I bought this to power my router, printer, charge my devices including laptop. Will I try using my desktop during an outage with this battery? Maybe if I need to, but I can usually get most things done with my laptop so I'd prefer that which will use less of the battery than a more power hungry desktop. But if you do run your PC on it and the PSU craps out, luckily most PSUs come with at least a 5yr warranty so there's that, I haven't read anything that other components will suffer damage if PSU incompatible.

Thanks OP. This is the first time Google Express has actually worked for me. I used THIRSTY1 not even 30 seconds before writing this post so it may still work for many. I will always buy a UPS when they go on a good sale even if I don't need it right then. I have 3 pure sine wave units for computers and 6 simulated units from various manufacturers for other stuff. It's worth keeping plenty around with how dirty the power delivery is where I live. You can only replace bad capacitors on the UPS so many times before the board is completely non-functional.

I swear, speak of the devil. My power just went out.

Glad it worked for you! This is the first time Google Express worked for me too, after having tried many times for a while.

I am curious about your use case for UPS batteries. You have all of your consumer electronics plugged into them at all times? If a cell goes bad, does the entire UPS go bad, and can you just replace the bad cell?

Stock will depend on your area for Google Express deals. I just tested and it's in stock for me. So you can try a different zip code in your area and see if that works.
