<p>I know this is going to sound like some sort of paid ad for APC, but I swear the following story is true.</p><p>I spent all afternoon working on a major project for a client and decided to take a break to get some dinner. While I was out, a single-engine plane made a crash landing about two blocks from my house. In the process, it took down power to some 7,700 houses in my neighborhood for about three and a half hours.</p><p>I heard all this from a neighbor I ran into while I was out. My heart sunk as I tried to remember if my project was saved and backed up. I raced home to check and found my system still up and running!!! I will never run a computer without a UPS from now on!!</p>

I work with computers. I can honestly say that this UPS is the BEST one I've ever had! The system I've have hooked up to it is a Dell Precision 490 Workstation, with 8Gb of RAM, 2 - 10000 RPM server drives, and 2 - Dual Core Xeon 3.6Ghz processors. IT EATS ELECTRICTY. In fact, I've also got 3 20 inch flat panel monitors hooked up! The UPS that came with the system was a 1000VA unit. When we had a power failure the system overloaded the 1000VA unit and I lost everything I was working on. Enter the BackUPS RS 1500 unit: It'll run the system for at least 20 minutes, and, with the additional battery pack, runs the whole system for 1 hour(!!!). It includes a USB connection and monitoring software that it superub. The software allows you to tell the computer when to turn off (i.e. when 5 mintues of run time are left) and also reports when the power is just flakey (i.e. voltage is too high or too low, but not off). You will not be unhappy with this UPS, and I highly recoomend the addition external battery pack (BR24BP).
