Windows 7: looking to invest in a UPS

15 Sep 2015   #11

Windows 7 Professional (64bit)

kinda makes me wonder why there is still a market for them considering newer PSUs dont like them.. lm definitely going to drop someone a line regarding UPS's but the annoyance is that my budget isnt all that great which is annoying.

The market for modified sine wave UPSes is still there because people still have older computers and computers aren't the only things protected by a UPS. Also, many newer PSUs will work with a modified sine wave (curiously enough, the cheaper ones) but it's a crap shoot whether they will or not; sometimes one model PSU will work while another of the same model will not.

As you said in the title of this thread, a PSU is an investment. While a pure sine wave UPS is going to cost significantly more, waiting until you can afford one is the wiser investment since you will be assured it will play well with any PSU you throw at it now or in the future. Keep in mind these can last a long time since you can always replace just the batteries when they start to fail.

lm only going to use it to keep my system powered through power fluctuations and live near the centre of a town l doubt l will have all that many power cuts
Ok timeless don't forget that the UPS (if it has surge protection like mine) and surge boards will cover you from brown outs too - not just the power outs

I only have a few thousand dollars, and was wondering what would be the "bang for your buck" monitor. I am not looking to overspend but my current monitor is not that great
