Parts of California are facing the threat of roaming balckouts, and, being that I live there, I started thinking about buying a UPS. Any recomendations? This would be for a home system not a server. I have lots of peripherals to plug in but rarely use all or even most of them at the same time. Thanks in advance
I got an APC Back-UPS 650 this fall; next time I would get something bigger. On my dual PII 450 (451 watt PS) and 21" monitor, I get about 6-10 minutes run time, and it would be much nicer to get 15-20 minutes before having to shut down.
I have a APC 1400. most of the time it's just sitting there being a big surge protector but I do live in the Bay Area so It's just waiting for the next outage. Go with APC they seem to be the best out there.
