I bought another Tripp-lite. Costco sells them for $100 CDN. My brand preference is APC, but $100 with built in voltage regulation is hard to beat. It looks pretty good too (at least as far as UPS's go). The blue LCD screen looks quite nice.

Cool! I almost bought a better APC with an LCD screen, but some of the reviews online said it had a noisy fan. Does this one have a fan?

These $19 UPS are so good I'm going to buy more and use them for emergency electricity in my motel rooms. 5W energy saver bulbs are only $2 each here and they should stay on for at least 2 hours. That's plenty of time to start the generator.

I'm not familiar with the brand or model, but that sounds like a good deal. What do they look like?

No fan, it's completely silent. I have one for my mini and one for my home theater.

They look like any other UPS and have all the standard features. No fans.
Three 220V outlets, two RJ45 sockets, and a bunch of LEDs. The aesthetics aren't important for this kind of equipment - they're under my desk anyway.

They're made here in Thailand by ZIRCON POWER SOLUTIONS Co. Ltd., Bangkok, and I doubt whether the brand is known in America. We get a lot of peripherals in Asia that are not exported to Western countries. Most other UPS here cost around $60.
Time will tell if these units are up to scratch, but at $19 who cares Smile

Here's the pic (it might take a second or two to load - the server's in Bangkok):

I have an APC Back-up also, which I've had for over 5 years. I'm beginning to think I may need a battery for it. It's starting to act weird.

APC 1500XS, 20 minutes at a 350W load. Cool

APC Back UPS ES 350, haven't had to rely on the battery yet so no idea of run time but my guess would be minimal.
