Hello,

I would like to buy a UPS battery back-up for our two computers that we use at home, however hours of online research has left me completely confused as which type to purchase. I'm not interested in using my PC during a power outage, I just want it to properly shutdown when we do loose power.

Can we hook up both PCs to one UPS or do they each need a separate one?
Do we plug in just the computers or the monitors also?
We have DSL, would we need a special type of UPS?
Are there any brands that we should avoid?

We have a Dell 2400 w/2.4 GHz Intel Celeron Processor w/17" CRT Monitor and a Dell 3000 w/3 GHz Pentium 4 Processor w/19"CRT Monitor, both with Windows XP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

APC is what I use at work and at home. They may cost a bit more, but I've always enjoyed their quality.

You can use this link to find their recommended UPS for your needs:
http://www.apc.com/t...n_query_string=

If that link doesn't work, try:
http://www.apc.com/s...cfm?segmentID=1 and choose the PC/Workstation link along the left menu bar

Hope that helps.
