    JT from Sanyo Denki gave me the list prices for the other size A11H models:

    Please remember these are list prices, and actual retail prices should be much lower.

    so considering the price im guessing that is more for business related equipment. that being said, why only 6 inputs?

    VERY NICE!!!

    I would love one of these, and I have been wondering what one could handle my system. This looks like it could be the one.

    Thanks for the review T.

    you are going to pay $1000+ for a UPS for your system?

    Yes, these are geared more toward business, but a few really "hard-core" home users might consider something like these. As for the inputs, for a server type situation, I don't think you would need that many: maybe two for dual servers (or more on the larger units), one for a KVM, one for a switch/hub/router/gateway.

    interesting. i would imagine even for a hardcore user this unit is overkill. im not saying this is a bad unit and doesnt deserve the rating, im just real curious to see who buys it and for what reason.

    During the comparison shopping I did, I found other online UPS systems (of similar specs) for less, but I could not one that had as wide of an input voltage/frequency range as the Sanyo Denki. I spoke with some IT managers who said that a typical online UPS that they would buy (if they bought a 1kVA model) would be around $800.

    The other consideration to keep in mind, is that the price shown above is indeed a "list price" and may not reflect actual sale price.

    thanks for the info. im actually eyeing an old (1995?) 1kVA UPS that is doing nothing here at work. they no longer use it as the piece of equipment it was attached to has been tossed.

    [offtopic]Cool - can't beat that. I just started my internship at the local hospital, and they've got some older stuff they are replacing. With any luck I might get my hands on some older stuff, too... [/offtopic]
