Cheap ups for computer


#1

Am looking at putting in a UPS for my computer (no prizes for guessing why! :) ) -- I just want enough time to shut down, thats all... Any suggestions will be appreciated --- Thanks!


#2

whats your budget?


#3

Alfa 350W about Rs. 4200. Will give you about 2-3 mins shutdown time. Very small with dry sealed batteries.

APC is better but it costs Rs. 7500.

Edit: 350W = 600 VA


#4

Get at least 500VA UPS. With a 17 inch CRT, that would give you hardly 10 minutes..any less capacity and your UPS will definitely discharge before you can do a proper shutdown.


#5

JonCHN or any any other chinese brand will do the trick, as long as the VA isn't extremely under-rated. 500va, as kuya recommended, should be fine in most cases and should cost you around 3-3.5k.


#6

what about second hand ups>>i was interested in the same thing but wanted to buy a second hand ups as they are cheaper>>anybody knows anything about that


#7

is there any ups which will give me atleast 1 hour to shutdown... if there is .. wat is the cost?

second hand ups go for 1500 to 2500 rs but they are 110 watts so you need a good converter to run them available in naz digital plaza in saddar>>chinese onces are also available in regal>
