I was looking at this APC Back-UPS (BE350VA) at comp usa for $20 after MIR & was about to get it, when i noticed there was no serial/usb connector to connect w/ the pc. The box claims that it includes software that will shut down your pc in the event of a power outage, but without being hooked up to the UPS, how does it do this? Does this UPS seem like a good deal?
I've just been looking for a decent UPS for at home use to protect from brown/black outs. Any other recommendations for UPSs would be appreciated...thx
