I have several Belkin UPSs which over the years have only let me down
once (we had a power substation fire which did some really funky things
to the AC for a couple of minutes, afterward my motherboard on one
computer "protected" by a Belkin UPS was dead). My main complaint with
the Belkins is there insistence to loudly beep every 30s when on
battery. Acceptable for 1 UPS, really annoying for 5... :-)
Also I tried an off-brand small UPS on my wireless broadband router in
the attic, it only lasted about a year before dying.
When shopping, check replacement battery cost and availability.
When sizing, you may want to include your infrastructure (routers,
switches) and displays.
