vorkev1 says:

this guy is not smart at all. they are not intended to be used in a outage they are intended simply for a computer to be able to save its data and power down correctly to prevent damage to equipment from sudden power loss and to give time for a user to save any open stuff on their computer so not to loose it. The biggest thing they wear invented for tho was to prevent damage to sensitive equipment during a power outage or voltage change and a device to be shutdown in case of a outage to prevent damage.

LiuProduction says:

so how many va of a UPS do i need if i have 1000w PSU in my pc

Mark Lee says:

I would like to know how to open the exact 2000VA Xfinity UPS that is shown left and right in this video.  I have 2 of these and need to replace the batteries.  It has 4 holes that seem to have no “bottom” accessible from the bottom of the unit (Blind Holes).  It has only one screw holding the front bezel at the bottom.  The bezel does not come off easily after removing this screw.  I do not want to break the bezel.  The Ultra Models have 2 screws and are easy to replace batteries, within.  These models, not so much.

For a PS4 Slim and 32 inch (81 cm) Full HD Tv from LG

Cameron Atkinson says:

Good video, the blinking tiger background is kind of distracting.

Timotius Aditya says:

Why dont ups hold longer than gaming laptop battery?

Chetoos1982 says:

Hi ups also works with the ps4 and the router?

Praveen Sampath says:

Skip to 03:55 for the answer to the question in the title

DR H says:

Pure commercial, not a review or a good “how to choose” guide.  Very basic Info about ups’s, then shows the features of one of their high end units.  Shuold be titled more accurately and for that I give this a thumbs down.
