Amazon has some APC deals on UPS's today, here one of them: APC 1500VA/900W $119 and free shipping.
4 to choose from, all on sale. Thanks!
I have an older APC 1500VA UPS. Here's an issue I reported and their response:
Reported: (loud) fan runs for four hours if there is any power interruption and about once per month.

Generally, the firmware of the UPS is designed in such a way that, if UPS is unplugged even for a minute, fan will run continuously for about 3-4 hours.
I hope that has changed. I still use that UPS but it's in a location where I can't hear it.
If you come across any other UPS sales like that, feel free to post 'em.
Will do, @krkaufman. Hope it helps. Ed
Thanks, Ed. The odds of helping will improve if I don't let myself get distracted and actually finalize a purchase. (!!!)
<chuckle> Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt but left it laying on the counter in the bag....
It has changed at least on the models I have. In all cases the fan shuts off just seconds after power is restored or the self test completes
@krkaufman Here's a link to a APC 1500va model for $115 at B&H Photo, they are a good outfit. I don't think this is a pure sinewave ups but it is AVR.
APCPower Saving Back-UPS XS 1500
I can confirm that it is NOT a pure sinewave model but while that was an issue with analog signals I really don't think it matters with today's digital signals. I have one of those on my PC and it works great plus I will also give B&H a thumbs up
It looks like several outfits are having UPS sales at the moment...Amazon (adds sales tax), B&H Photo (no tax), and Newegg (no tax, I think)...here's a link to B&H Photo: APCBattery Back-UPS Pro BX1500M
In case folks are curious what the difference between the BR and BX models are:
What are the differences between the Back-UPS RS and the Back-UPS XS models (Does not Include BX/BR LCD Models)
I don't know if they maintained the AVR difference when they went to the LCD models though, the BX LCD models have network ports, so that difference was eliminated.
I guess the Boost only vs Boost/Trim distinction is still there.
Just bought the BX1500G, but need some questions answered.
Shouldn't be a huge deal unless you are constantly in an overvoltage situation when the battery on the BX will get more usage.
I'm just posting because I had wondered in the past what the differences were. Initially I thought it was just which retail channel they were sold under.
CyberPower Intelligent LCD UPS CP1000AVRLCD 1000 VA 600 Watts 9 Outlets UPS - Newegg.com
Sales ends 8 hours from now. $75
Not a UPS, but if you just need a surge protector/power strip this one might be worth looking at...$18
CyberPower CP1000PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS System CP1000PFCLCD B&H
$149.95...clip the coupon and knock $50 off....makes it $99.95 free shipping / no tax.
That's a nice UPS. I use one on my desktop. B&H has never been a problem for me.
