So my current UPS ([lurl=http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SUA1500]APC Smart-UPS 1500VA - SUA1500[/url]) is finally biting the dust after using it for some 7 years. I got it used off Ebay for $300, so I really can't complain. I was thinking that I could just replace the battery, but it's been making some noise lately, and after my latest move, the wiring fault LED is turning on.
So with that, looking for something new to replace it. First instinct is to go with APC's latest version (SMT1500
), but the price is fairly up there ($500). So I figured I'd ask what others are using and their experiences with them. Looking for the same VA/W class. It's overkill for my system, but I'm frequently plugging in secondary systems for maintenance, etc, so I'd rather go to big then little.
