actually, I'd take an Eaton Powerware (formerly Best Power) over a APC 
any day.

APC BackUPS grade stuff is strictly cheap consumer gear, I've had dozens 
of them fail over the years, all different BU models, the battery fails, 
you put a new battery in and the UPS still won't work.     They 
consistently overcharge the batteries so they die in 2-3 years, when 
they should last 5+.

The APC SmartUPS stuff is significantly better, but also a lot more
