Ups into your fridge tho

Chad Peterson says:

Would also recommend you guys mention Pure Sine vs Simulated Sine waves. From what I understand simulated sine UPS’s are cheaper but may harm components such as screen back lights. Great weekly vids guys!

Awesome informative video dude!. I love every part of it, including the UPS thing of course that’s the reason why I landed here in the first place. But of all the parts of this video, I love this one the most…(track 0:20).! Well, don’t ask, I’m a Photoshoppy Guy, so I love things about pictures and creative editing.

Should it be “which” USP to buy?

Nathan Snell says:

That’s what you call “as fast as possible?” Could have shaved off at least 25% of the content.

ShaperJet says:

Mike Soda says:

So for 500W I’d want a minimum of a 1000VA UPS?

Have an APC Smart-UPS 1500 that backs up the I-5 Desktop Computer, 1080P Monitor, Dell 24-Port Switch and the CenturyLink ADSL Modm. This keeps me up and running when the lights flicker and the clocks need to be reset ! And if the outage lasts a few minutes I will have time to shut down ! tjl

defending from cat… my cat likes to use my tower as a jump platform to the window. he killed one of my hdd by rocking the case when jumping. I now have cat quake straps securing my tower from the car.

I have 1600VA UPS and 300Ah of tall tubular battery, oh baby I rejoice power outages, gaming while hear the UPS of other people screaming as I game for an hour. Now that’s an investment every gamer should do.
