Where the heck did you find that? The shipping alone on my latest ups
purchase was about that. I have been getting $75US PCM 800AP models at
work because the APC ones were around $300 for anything that lasted
more than 7 minutes. What wattage are you using? I find that anything
less that 500VA is worthless. I guess a really cheap ups could work if
you get the power of your system down to 50W or something like that
but this requires that you have only 1 hard drive installed or they
can all go to sleep.
