CyberPower UPS Battery Backup for PCs
It's no secret that our cherished computers and personal electronic devices all depend on electricity. They can't live without power, and we feel powerless without them. Conscious of our need for continuous productivity, CyberPower Systems has built an entire battery backup product line designed to supply uninterrupted power to our PCs and HDTVs. So when winter storms come or summer brown-outs occur, there's no reason why your small business or home office should stop working. A sudden power-outage shouldn't mean crashing your computer system in the middle of an exciting video game, and an enjoyable movie should not need to restart. In this article Benchmark Reviews demonstrates how important CyberPower UPS battery-backup devices are for sustained computing as their Intelligent LCD Series CP825AVRLCD, CP1000AVRLCD, and CP1500AVRLCD models are put to test.
This article will focus on three specific topics: choosing which battery backup solution is right for you, testing how long they'll last for your device when the powers out, and comparing the CyberPower UPS solutions to other products in the industry. During the course of our tests, Benchmark Reviews learned that over-estimating power needs is a better decision than under-estimating. Remember the golden rule: it's better to have and not need than to need and not have. It's not just about having more time with any particular UPS battery backup, which is certainly preferable, but instead the primary reason is because larger Volts-Ampre ratings mean that high-demand devices will sustain heavy loads better than a smaller UPS.
Reader familiar with Benchmark Reviews generally work on netbook/notebook devices, desktop workstations, and high-performance enthusiast computer systems. CyberPower offers a UPS battery backup devices that caters directly to each crowd, and can be adapted for other purposes such as media players, entertainment centers, and HDTVs as well. Of the ten different personal battery backup models that CyberPower Systems offers in this product line, we test the CP825AVRLCD, CP1000AVRLCD, and CP1500AVRLCD devices from their Intelligent LCD Series. These three devices represent a common cross-section of sustained-power needs.
