I need a UPS at home, Surge Protection is not enough. The Power fluctuations at home can last about 2 seconds sometimes so a UPS is definitely needed, but quite expensive. (How come UPS prices haven't become cheap yet hahaha)

Not a lot of people need/use them. So the prices stay high.

This is actually a funny post to me. I use them on all electronics. My neighbor asked me what they were. We had a storm roll through here and lighting hit between our houses. Did not bother me, but my neighbor lost a TV, computer, Wii, electric keyboard and garage door opener.

Sometimes it doesn't matter what you have. Just got back online after a lightning strike 2 nights ago, 2 motherboards fried, a router, and every cable component from the road in. :( Everything had some kind of protection. :blink:

I just use regular surge protectors on my electronics I don't use UPS because of the cost of having to replace them every 2-3 years just isn't worth it for my needs.
