Ultra Products 1200 Watt Uninterruptible Power SupplyMon, Aug 14, 2006 - 9:04 AM
When it comes to building computers I’d say it is safe to say that many people forget to include an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) with their purchases. With rolling blackouts, hurricanes, storms and other natural disasters becoming more frequent the need for a UPS is something that will save you headaches down the road. Let’s take a look at the Ultra Products 2000VA UPS!
Sure we all experience power failures, but what about those surges and unwanted events? Just recently at a local LAN party in St. Louis the event staff incorrectly wired up the power for the BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) area, resulting in three gamers having fried power supplies when the switch was flipped. A LAN party is an ideal place for a UPS as power cords often get kicked out of the walls, circuit breakers get tripped and wires aren’t correctly wired. UPS units help eliminate down time caused by power problems, transient errors, and equipment damage.
