An excellent UPS for the money
on July 18, 2004
I first heard about this particular UPS when PC World gave it a Best Buy rating in their August 2004 issue. It seemed too good to be true: APC quality, 725 VA capacity, broadband support, and a bargain price. Buying it was a no-brainer; I've bought dozens of APC UPS's as a network administrator, and it's always been my preferred brand. The only APC UPS I've ever bought for home use is 8 years old, and STILL works! The only reason that I am replacing it is for the broadband protection and the extra capacity.
I was also surprised to learn that this UPS has a datalink to the computer, for automated shutdowns and numerous configuration options. I particularly liked the feature that let me disable the UPS alarms. You can even tell it the voltage threshholds when the battery power should kick in... amazing.
I honestly believe that you won't find a better home or small office UPS for the money.
