Ultra 850VA Power Protection Unit and UPS Review

Manufacturer: Ultra Products

Introduction and Features

Ultra Products has a well-earned reputation with PC enthusiasts for providing a full range of aftermarket components and accessories.  Today we have something a bit different from the normal fare up for review – an Ultra Products Power Protection Unit.  Most PC enthusiasts invest hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the latest computer equipment and software but how many of us are protected in the event the power suddenly goes out?  Along with regular backups, having good surge suppression and a UPS properly integrated into your system is one of the best ways to prevent hardware damage and data loss.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />



At first glance the Ultra 850VA power protection unit may look like an oversized outlet strip.  However, under the hood reside the latest surge suppression circuits and a full featured Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).  The entry level Ultra 850VA Power Protection Unit features up to 850 Volt Amps (425W) of AC backup power to keep your home server, workstation or PC running during brief power outages and allows time for a safe shutdown during longer outages.
