I know I was shocked at the price I had to pay last time I replaced the APC 
battery.  My favourite vendor sells a lot of Liebert PowerSure UPSs, so I 
presume they have had no problems with them, or they'd have given up by now.  
There is a large range, and the prices are good, but the only thing I can say 
is that I haven't heard anyone complain.  I'd prefer to hear a positive report 
before buying.
