CyberPower Surge Protector UPS - Keep your Gear Safe




CyberPower Surge Protector UPS

Protect your expensive home media server


Did you know your expensive electronic equipment is under constant attack from the power grid. With more and more electronics containing microprocessors these can easily be damaged from momentary power spikes or low voltage conditions.


Protecting expensive electronic gear is nothing new. People have been doing this early on from using inexpensive surge protection built into cheap power strips, to more expensive uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) on costly computer systems.

While computers have become much more affordable, that is unless your talking about a Mac Pro. Large screen televisions and projectors as well as surround sound audio equipment can still add up to several thousands of dollars. Protecting this equipment with a high quality surge protector or UPS is something you should take very seriously unless you can afford to upgrade to new equipment every year or so. And let's face it most of us can't.

Since many us streamers also run some sort of media server, HTPC or hard drive enabled media player. A UPS makes the most sense in these applications. A UPS contains high quality suppression and filtering circuitry, and also provides batteries to provide managed shutdown of your equipment.

While most equipment does not care if you simply yank the plug out of the wall. Computer equipment likes to do a bit of housekeeping duties first. If this is not done, the results can be a corrupted file system requiring a time consuming clean install of the operating system.

A high quality UPS will provide HID compliant USB ports that will provide power management and auto shutdown features for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X media servers or computers to safely shut down your equipment.

If a UPS is not required, a high quality surge protector like Tripplite is among the best and should be used instead to protect your expensive electronic equipment. Including a high quality surge protector or UPS in your home entertainment system will give you added peace of mind, and is good insurance for long term protection.
