Get a "Best Power UPS" instead. They are higher quality IMHO,
cheaper, and they directly support Linux, and give out source
code. APCC does NOT support Linux, does not give out source
code, and have been rather careless with respect to the Linux

I have an APC SmartUPS 600, and it is not working. It lasted
about 6 months. It died 2 days before Andre Hedrick released his
GPL'd APC power software.

Everyone I talk to recommends Best UPS's over APC anyways. I was
at both the Best Power, and the APC booths at COMDEX last week,
and although APC's booth was larger, the people at the Best booth
were much more polite, and friendly. When I asked them about
Linux, the Best people were on the ball, and ensured me it worked
fantastic with Linux, while the response I got from the APC rep
was "Linux? What is that?"...

Just some food for thought.
