I'd like a little more protection for my computer during black outs and when the power dies for just a moment during certain times, so i'm looking for a decent UPS unit. I've stumbled across these two but I'm open to suggestions for other units as well. I'm sorta looking for the best bang for the buck i can get, and not really looking to spend more than 200 USD.

Get the 1500VA/900W UPS if you can afford it. It will work on battery longer and it's harder to overload it.
