Looking for a decent Battery Backup..Any suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I am looking to invest in a battery backup (UPS). I mainly want to protect my NAS unit which is a QNap TS-453A, I also have a custom built computer I built few years back... i7 CPU, Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 TI Video Card, 850 Watt PSU specs for those wondering, but it's not important. In reality, I would be backing up my computer, the NAS, my Modem and a monitor for when there is a power outage..just so I can shut everything down safely in time until the power comes back on. I've been seeing a battery backup in Costco for the longest time, for $99 bucks which is a Cyberpower CST135XLU and I've been thinking about buying, but I just don't know if it is any good. I see people saying online..so and so UPS blew up my devices, this and that and they stopped working and I don't know what to believe. And another thing, the one I linked says it uses "Simulated Sine Wave" and I have no clue what that means, aside from the description it says..but then I see other types like True Sine Wave, and so on..I just don't know. So basically, for what I'm wanting to do, would this battery backup be good for those uses?.

I own one of these as well. It powers my PfSense box, Modem, and Switch. Saved me at least 2 times already. :)
