    Re: Which UPS? (Score: 0)

    I use a Best UPS ( that so far has worked just fine. I bought it because it supposedly included linux software that seemed more powerful than Nut AND because I’d just gone though almost a dozen malfunctioning APC’s at work (honest: big sparks, smoke, and no “UPS” at all).

    The flip side is that the software didn’t seem to work with my model. I had the feeling that my models (Patriot Pro II) were acquired from a company they had purchased recently. Their supposedly good tech support never returned any of my 4 calls for help. A few months later I saw a web page that indicated I should use a different version of the software than came on CD with the UPS, but I haven’t gotten around to trying it.

    So: the equipment seems good, but I want an apology for the bad service 😉
