Try it for your media center

Summary: I purchased this product for use with a media center. Too many times we would get power blips undervoltage and short outages. These can destroy any hard drive and create havoc for the operating system be it windows or linux. This unit looks good enough to be with your components and has no difficulty correcting the power problems including outages. Software is good and provides more versatility for settings and notification. Very good choice for thius type of usage.
Summary: Product works great as advertised and is great for the price. I have a router and 24-port switch plugged into it and it seems to do its job and hold charge for a long time. As with all back-up batteries I know I will end up changing the unit 3-5 years so I know its not worth it to go with higher priced APC units which would be about $240 for 500VA and 300W.
Summary: There really was no contest. For example, APC only gives you the personal addition of the software, and one has to pay extra for the rackmount materials. Not too mention, the cost of a rackmount unit from APC. Geez!
