    Is pure sine wave a requirement for a UPS that'll be on a computer & monitor? I found a modified sine wave UPS on sale today but I'm seeing mixed information on how important that is for electronics.

    If you're unsure if your equipment requires it, then you don't need it.

    Are you doing work that absolutely cannot be lost in case of a power outage? Then no.

    Unless your home has shit power that goes out often (Like almost every day), don't bother with a UPS. Get a surge protector if you really want to protect things, otherwise, you just have to power the device back on afterward.

    To be perfectly fair, i’ve had routers die due to power outages. A small UPS is worth at least to keep the modem/router protected incase it happens and will keep your internet running.

    Having lived back to back in NOLA and The Bay Area a UPS is absolutely essential for the shitty ass power companies in those areas.

    That said, it's only real purpose is to protect my NAS, which is set to auto power off after the UPS has been running for 5 minutes.

    Too bad Newegg has turned into such a garbage company. I'd see if best buy has that model and price match it just to avoid dealing with newegg's horrible support

    Thanks for the feedback on the UPS. I'm in a neighborhood that had issues during the summer because so many people got air conditioning in the past few years and the grid couldn't handle it. Also since I have FIOS the internet will keep working if I have the ONT powered.
