    i would say it depends on how long battery/uptime timeyou want on the UPS after power out.
    and for what ive seen they are expensive, but then again i dont know what country you live in, that way i cant say for shure.

    I agree with kkn, for a machine like that to get a 10/15 minutes uptime after a power cut, its really not worth the price unless you are running a business from your PC.
    You can get one for around 75€/$ that will give you about 1 or 2 minutes to shut down (that is how mine works lol) but it does have the advantage of sparing your PC from power surges (both negative and positive as both are equally dangerous for the electronics)

    I'm not looking for that much of backup time. I'd settle for around 3 min. of backup time. Should be enough time for me to properly shut the computer down during a blackout. Oh, and by the way, I live in the Philippines and we have 220v outlet outputs here. We use regulators to lower the voltage if needed.
