Default Re: UPS for DLP TV

I just cannot afford a $2K PurePower 700.

I would just like to find something that is not harmful to my TV, and that will allow me the 5-10 minutes of reserve I would need to have the fan cool down things so I can subsequently turn off the TV.

My other stuff hooked up to the 5100 will simply have to be happy with what I can afford.

Is this OK? Monster-Power Home Theatre UPS 500 for DLP, Rear Projection, Projection TVs and DVRs/PVRs

I hadn't seen that one, looks like it would do the job, and it's very affordable.

Well, I got some propoganda in the e-mail this morning from buy dot com for $50 off a new (wierd) credit card with a $51 order. This is $206 including $15 shipping. That gets it down pretty reasonable, I think.

Thanks

I have experimented with a few of the little APCs for my office system, and they did not last very long. I think after the 3rd or 4th power outage at my house (~ 6 month time frame), they died. I would definitely look into a UPS made for HT application before trying an APC for computer stuff.

I'm sure this was just "ships crossing in the middle of the night", but Monster Power seems to make a HT 500 for just my needs.

Seems...

Thumbs up Re: UPS for DLP TV

An inexpensive UPS that I use for some intermediate installations is the Belkin AVR 30800BLK
As long as your power is grounded and up to code,you won't hear any noise from this unit.
It does run a bit warmer than others,but provides excellent pwr.backup and protection.The price is also very good for what you get.Beware,Belkin has good runs and bad,meaning you'll either get a good unit or a defective one.Make sure the business you buy from has a
exchange or money back policy.Unit runs between $200-250,on sale,if price is too good to be true,avoid it!
