I'm not at all keen on APC, I've used a lot of their UPS' in a few of my
jobs (never my choice to buy APC) and I've never been impressed. If you
want a decent UPS for home use then Belkin have a superb product, their
Pro-UPS Gold (I think thats what it's called) has 8 sockets on it. 4 of
them are battery backed and the other 4 are power surge protected, it
also has network connection surge support and the software that is
supplied is quite good and even better the cd has versions for Windows
and Linux.
