My room had one outlet on the wall behind a sofa, so I needed something with a long cord and flat plug. This met all the requirements. On top of that, I believe Tripp-Lite products are regarded as having reliable performance in case of surges, and the hardware warranty gives adequate piece of mind. So far I've ended up buying 3 of these for various rooms in my home.
I've had personal computers in my business since 1991 and have been a Tripp Lite customer for just as long. I haven't had a UPS in my home office since about 2000, so when I purchased this one I was thinking about the old desk side tower and huge CRT monitor, modem, etc. I had back then. Now that I use a notebook and LCD monitors, there is no load on the UPS. I now have a 4TB desktop NAS, wireless router, broadband modem, tiny workstation plugged into the UPS. Still showing "No Load". I'm going to pull the plug from the wall to test. since the software installed on the workstation says 180 minutes remaining.
