My UPS experience ...
I had an APC 280VA-170W unit that would keep a 2160 that was recording running for a little over an hour and several hours in standby.
I have a CyberPower 685VA-390W unit that kept 2-2160's and a 3576 that were recording going for about 30 minutes but would keep them going for hours in standby.
The 280VA has been retired and the 685VA now only has the 3576 on it. I have a new CyberPower 1350VA-810W UPS serving my 3 Maggies but I haven't had a power outage to test this new setup yet.
Thanks for the actual VA/W ratings and runtime stats, both operating and Standby, for our specific equipment,,, it was the 'missing link" in the UPS help file!
Others: Please post YOUR experience so I can link to it in the help file. It'll really help others decide on their UPS needs. Please list or describe:
- UPS model & VA/W ratings.
- DVDR model(s) and No. of each on that UPS.
- Runtimes experienced (both operating and in Standby if available). Op stats can be estimates based on experience, like Kansas_Tom's. It's the "actual experience" that counts!
