Final Thoughts and Conclusions

If you don’t already have a surge suppressor and UPS supplying power to your PC, investing in a quality product like the Ultra 850VA Power Protection Unit could be one of the best purchases you make.  The Ultra 850VA UPS is an entry level unit that is well suited for small home systems.  It will allow your PC to glide through brief power outages and give you time to conduct a graceful shutdown for longer outages.


The Ultra 850VA Power Protection Unit isn’t much bigger than a conventional power outlet strip yet provides surge suppression, overload protection along with backup power should the lights go out.  The downside to the compact size is limited backup time.  Be sure to match your system requirements to a properly sized UPS.  Ultra offers eight different models ranging in capacity from 300VA (150W) to 2,000VA (1,200W).


The Ultra 850VA Power Protection Unit is currently available and sells for $89.99 USD.  Highly recommended!
