Is it just me or does the quality of consumer UPSs on the market seem dodgy at best?
As the title says, I’ve been recently looking at a replacement UPS (uninterruptible power supply) since my last cyberpower one died on me. I tried to replace the batteries in it and within 2 weeks those failed on me too so it seems like the unit itself was no good, Customer Service was less than helpful in getting this resolved…
I just purchased an APC with the same specs as previous (sinewave and 1500) and once received and all hooked up, it makes a high pitched buzzing noise similar to coil whine… Now I’ve held off for a while replacing it because every review you see out there is something along the lines of “Had it for two weeks before it died”, or, “This thihttps://xender.vip/ng almost burned my house down after exploding!”. None of these brands seem to instill any confidence but I want to protect my investment having recently upgraded some hardware and also experiencing some power surges due to the storms rolling through the east coast.
Anyways I digress, has everyone had issues with these and if not, which brand did you find the most reliable. Also if those of you find them unnecessary, what alternhttps://nox.tips/atives do you prefer to protect your machine from mother nature?
