The price is right but I'm a little wary about skimping on UPSes after a bad experience in the past where a cheap UPS failed and I lost a hard drive.

Anyone have experience with this model, particularly in brownout situations?

this weighs a massive 23 pounds - and can provide a whopping 10 minutes of backup power for half load (2min on full load) ..
if u read the features they’re all great-
except runtime

Are you saying there is something better for the money?

At this price point they provide clean power when line power or generator power fluctuates, and when power is cut they run long enough for your computer to shutdown nicely.

Umm, I don't think your average home computer will pull the full rated power the unit can provide, thus run time is extended with lighter loads. The key is to size the UPS to the expected load.

Cyberpower makes reasonably priced units with PURE SINE WAVE. This unit with simulated sine wave (and many APS brand UPS's) will not work with new active power supplies found in many new computers. The computer will shut down. Wait for a good sale on a unit with Pure Sine Wave.

I have an expensive "online" model from CyberPower, and a small one from an earlier Woot. I am very happy with both UPSes, would love to see higher end CyberPower products on Woot!

Specifically, some expensive desktop PC power supplies (and most Macs) include a feature called "Active PFC" to meet Energy Star requirements. Active PFC does not interoperate with the simulated sine wave from this UPS and similar models.

Even if your gaming desktop uses a high-end Active PFC power supply, this would be a fine choice of UPS to use with your cablemodem, router, wireless access point, etc.

This is also a good choice to use for a laptop & other chargers where you need filtering and voltage regulation rather than extended UPS battery runtime.
