A cool gaming system needs power protection just as your new car needs
insurance. Blackouts, undervoltages, surges, transients, all these are not about
you if you have a decent UPS installed. Protect the life of your equipment,
demand nothing less than OPTI-UPS

Ok first here is what I have plugged into this unit. A PC 3.3ghz quad core. WD 1TB HD and 2 SSD drives. BFG GTX 260 OC Max core card. X-FI Titanium sound card. My 24 E2420HD monitor, G15 keyboard and mouse. Also a cordless phone. I ran the test today after charging the unit up for a couple days. I unplugged the power cord from the wall and after 5 min it showed 70 % battery remaining and that was with a 33% load. I must say that this was impressive for the size of the unit. A must for anyone who needs a good UPS for a good price. I got mine for $99.00
I got this UPS 2 weeks ago on sale and so far it is working very well. The software that comes with it could be better but it does a good job of shutting down the computer in case of a power outage when you are not around.
I bought this UPS recently and there has been no storm or power outage so it's difficult to really evaluate how the UPS performs in those situations. But I didn't have any problem so far and I hope I won't in the future. Special price was great; I don't know if I would buy at the regular price of go with a know brand like Belkin or TrippLite.
I bought this for my daughters computer. E2160 at 3Ghz, Gigabyte DS3 and a basic Geforce 7200GS. I get at least 12 minutes backup time out of this UPS. I own a belkin for my own computer and can say that this one runs alot cooler. My only pet peeve is the software, its very plain and can't set it up to email/text me when the power goes out like my Belkin does.
This is the 2nd UPS I owned (my previous one does not have enough juice for a safe shutdown after years of service). After a year with this unit, it is still working fine. I have tested with both my PC and monitor (CRT) pluged into the UPS. This unit gives enough time for me to safely shutdown my machine.
