I meant to buy a UPS for my computer when I moved into my house. I never got around to it. With the new computer build, I had to get one before I started using it. I guess SSD drives can fail or get damaged if they suddenly lose power. Power loss doesn’t happen too often in my neighborhood, but it does happen. Owning a UPS is like an insurance policy for the investment made into the computer equipment.
CyberPower CP1350AVRLCD Uninterrupted Power Supply
I picked up a CyberPower CP1350AVRLCD Intelligent LCD Series UPS 1350VA 810W AVR Mini-Tower. With the computer and the two monitors plugged into the battery backup side, it tells me that it will last up to 31 minutes before losing all power. That’s more than enough time for me to save what I’m doing and shut down.
I highly recommend purchasing a UPS whether or not your system has a solid state drive. It protects your computer from unexpected shut down, acts as a surge protector, and regulates the power going into your system. All good things.
