Scott, my old Belkin UPS is having problems with cable. I mentioned it before on here. The socket or plug on the back of the UPS is loose or something so I have to unplug and replug it a lot.

Anyway the thing is over 10 years old I'm guessing. So do you have a recommendations on brands?

I did the survey where it asks you about your equipment on the APC site and it suggested This UPS. However it also put, This in my cart. I don't know why. Don't really want to spend close to $400 on a UPS.

I would recommend the least expensive UPS offered by either Costco or Sam's Club. That's what I've been using and it has worked out well for me. Scott.

I talked with an APC rep today and based on my current pc and things connected to it they told me This one. I asked about a smaller one and they said it would be fine as long as my PC didn't draw the full amount of power provided by the PSU while the pc and other items are connected to it. I don't think that ever happens...

Found it pretty cheap Here. Not a bad deal.

That place has some pretty bad reviews. Maybe I'll see if I can get Newegg.com to price match it.

It was the same price anyway because Provantage didn't offer free shipping. Chatted with customer support for Newegg and they offered me $10 off...

This one is much cheaper. What do you think?. I mean as far as my pc drawing the total amount of power the PSU is rated for, that's insane, isn't it?.

That's what I would have done. Let me know how it works out. Scott.

Using it now. Seems to work well so far. I had to give up one of my monitors to a surge protector only outlet so I could keep my Cable modem, Gigabit switch, and Dlink router plugged into the surge plus battery backup outlets. The USB connection is kind of strange because the part that plugs into the back of the UPS looks like an RJ45 connector and the other side is a normal USB Type A connector.
