Designed for the Home and Office, APC's New Back-UPS® Protect Against Data Loss, Computer Damage and Expensive Downtime
I love the idea of the power-saving outlets. This should address the vampire power that I was mentioning in a previous thread like a week or so ago.
Also, the price of this unit doesn't sound that bad.
APC certainly shows no signs of losing their lead in the UPS market. They're generally good hardware, as long as you don't get lazy about life-cycling them. (I spent a little time yesterday reconfiguring SNMP on 89 of their larger units - lol.)
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Well if y'all still believe Vampires exist, then go ahead and have Santa bring me a couple of these.
It is good to see that APC is bringing down their prices a bit! That is kinda why I have been hesitant to get a new APC. Because I want to see the Lithium with a fair price tag on it.
These things are invaluable. Because without one, that's exactly where you will be..UPS a creek without a paddle.
News: In addition, all Back-UPS Pro models come equipped with automatic voltage regulation.
News:All Back-UPS Pro models come equipped with automatic voltage regulation (AVR). AVR instantly adjusts low and high voltages to safe levels, so users can work during brownouts and over-voltage situations, saving the battery for power outages.
Correct me if I am wrong, but don't all UPS units regulate voltage just by the nature of how they work. You are always pulling from the battery and it is always charging it. If you got power right from the wall and it had to switch when power went out it would not be good for computers. Naturally the power you are pulling from the battery is not going to have super highs and lows (well until it is almost drained. All batteries voltage lowers as it drains, but that story is for another day.)
