Thanks, just ordered one for in store pickup this morning.

Some of the comments on Slickdeals mentioned a coil whine noise or something like that - have you noticed anything with your units?

While I know what they are and do, I don't know how much lifting any given model can sol

This seems like a pretty lightweight UPS.

I think it would power my modem (no battery backup) and router for awhile. With a 'Book or 'Pad I could be online for a bit, if needed.

But what about a computer, display, and some external HDs? Does this just allow me to shut down that gear gracefully and not an inconsiderate 'crash'?

^^^ The lighter weight models do allow the graceful shut down and work well on those momentary outages that would otherwise bump your modem/router offline. Not good for running without wall power.

Also, mine have had enough battery power during longer outages to grind my coffee beans. Mighty welcome when needed…

I got a bigger unit last year and it did have a whine noise. APC was really good in handling the exchange for another unit that does not have the noise.

I set mine up yesterday afternoon and, luckily, no whine. Great unit at a great price. Thanks again to the OP for the heads up on the deal.
