Keep in mind that pretty much all of them that don't have multiple 
battery/control modules and auto-switching (like the big APC Symmetra's) 
  will have their own failure modes 3 or 4 years out if you just plug 
them in and forget them.  That is, they will cause downtime even if you 
don't have a power failure.
