A few tips on picking a UPS for your Mac
Authored by: bdodds on Mar 05, '08 06:37:23PM

I also have been using an Omni1000LCD UPS ($99) from Costco for about a year. It worked fine until recently when we had a brownout.
At that point if failed to keep my Mac Pro on and has now started this unexplained shutdown all by itself thing. Every time is 100% random with No power problems.
The thing just starts wailing and shuts off a few moments later. I also know of THREE other Omni1000LCD UPS units that failed like this.

I will be returning this unit for a full refund and going back to an APC model. I have had one of them fail on me yet.
