and we on the other hand have replaced say 20 out of 20 smart ups1000,
1100 in say 3 yrs

	- good or bad thing is that you can buy spare batteries for APC
	which may or may not be the case for other brands

		- other vendors do or don't have "battery" problems??

- trick question is what is the purpose of the ups
	- brown outs ?

	- surge surpressors ?

	- 5min or 30min or 1hr+ of uptime when the city has gone black
	  from the backhoe down the street  or the local power-utilities
	  employee pulling the wrong breakers
