This review is from: APC BE750G Back-UPS 750 VA 10-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Pros: Works fine when it works. Phone support was good.
Cons: After one year, battery time had dropped to 1 minute (on 170W, less than half load). I found out when we had a storm. Power was up and down, the computer was up and down, and I lost a drive. I bought a new battery, but backup time was still only 1 minute. This is far below the rating, and too short to sleep the computer. It’s possible the second battery was also bad, but APC replaced the whole UPS.
Other Thoughts: You must use the Power Chute program and check regularly for diminished battery time. That’s the only way to avoid a nasty surprise. The replacement UPS is working fine, but I don’t think I will buy from APC again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Ergotron 33-324-200 DS100 Quad-Monitor Desk Stand
Pros: Awesome stand, my second from Ergotron. Quality design and quality construction. I am using ASUS VE248 monitors. They're very compact for 24-inches, and the stand holds them just fine.
Cons: Not really a con, but the mounts only support a fixed 4-degree vertical XOR horizontal tilt. I chose to tilt the monitors toward each other side-to-side, saving space on my desk. You could also tilt them away, for a flatter display.
Other Thoughts: The mounts for the two-monitor stand will tilt in both dimensions, but they're about six inches longer, which costs more desk space.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I ordered four of these for a day trading rig because they screw easily onto the Ergotron stand. All four look great out of the box with no bad pixels.
Cons: This application does not require sound. The speakers are lousy. ASUS should just make them without speakers.
Other Thoughts: Switch on bottom means I can't mount upper monitor flush with lower one.READ FULL REVIEW
