Default Battery Backup / Surge Protection

Sup homies?

Since the loss of my NAS here a few weeks ago I am looking at a power backup with surge protection.

Currently for my PC I am using some POS surge protector, something from Belki:

https://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-BV108200-06/

That to be exact. My PC, monitor, modem, NAS and router are attached too it.

For my Home Theater I am using the following:

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX64072

Which I am no longer liking. I can hear a buzzing sound coming from it all the time. The readout shows 124v and moves up and down radically from time to time. Attached too it is a Optoma UHZ65 Projector, Yamaha CXA5100, Apple 4K TV, Nintendo Switch, Shaw Bluesky Box, Sony UBPX800M2 Bluray Player.

I know I have power issues in my home so I am looking at replacing all the surge protectors for my critical devices with battery backups.

I am looking at a UPS from Cyber Power. one of these:

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX32714

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX32745

Depending on my needs.

I had a power outage here as soon as I got my new NAS, huge storm came through so I am getting a little concerned.

Anyone can chime in with thoughts or suggestions if this is a good idea or if there's are good products too use.

Ya I bought 2 of the same ultra power on sale and the one on the home theater buzzed like mad so I had to operate on it... Its way down now but can still hear it. The other unit is fine tho.

Having a batt backup on top of LC might be useful, tho power outages are rare here. Are they finally making batt backups with lithium tho?

I will probably get rid of the Ultra Link. I don't particularly like it, and I have to do some weird setup to get everything plugged in. If I go with the Cyberpower I can fit everything just fine without issue, plus it would look cleaner.

I've been re-doing all the cables on my PC and Home Theater all morning trying to make everything clean. Just about to step out and grab some Blue-Diamond HDMI cables so everything matches and maybe grab the Cyberpower UPS.

A "crap" APC is better than 90% of the cheap unresearched crap that is put into the market. APC is still the brand of choice in the corporate space.

I have a large pile of dead APC UPS units at the office that says otherwise. Most recent was a SmartUPS 1500 with less than a year on a genuine APC battery cartridge. Power supply sharted and clicked on and off rapidly knocking out my main switch stack and firewall. Maybe their industrial line is still good but their small and medium business products are junk.

Can't say I've had the same problems. I'm not saying you haven't had your own issues, but they aren't one's I've experienced (and we use their small business models for our remote locations).

I have their 1350 model for 2.5yrs and without any problems. The software doesn't accurately log all the events but the unit itself does.
