I am in AUSTRALIA, so please consider that for pricing...seems to make a big difference sadly =(
I am running a pretty standard bubby home server. i3-2120, 500W Platinum Rated PSU, no dGPU, 7 WD Greens (which windows can turn off) and 3 low power 120mm fans. It doesn't really do much 99% of its life, just sits there and looks pretty.
I am after a UPS primarily for the sake of nice clean power, and also to accommodate for very short power outages (<5mins). Generally if the power goes out here for longer than a few seconds its cos something major has gone wrong and half of the grid is down.
Basically...what brands do people think will be good? I mean there are plenty of "K-Stars" and "Ritmos" which i know are crap, but what about something like a Power Shield
? I was looking at the <$200 mark ideally.
Thanks for any help you can provide =)
Oh, and I have read the other UPS threads - that means I am aware of the UPS/SPS debate thing =P
Edit: Just found a Belkin
. Seems good for the price. While I know they are a 'brand name' for some things...would you trust them to be semi-reasonable for a UPS? (I don't need enterprise-grade quality remember)
