    Yes, APC is little costly but I wouldn't suggest u to go for cheaper one. I was using a 650VA Elent which blasted like a bomb. I found my 15" monitor, 845MoBo the victim of Elent malfunction. UPS was in warranty so replaced in one MONTH but Monitor & MoBo has gone forever.

    Till then I am using a APC and its a damn good

    APC is the best
    unmatched service backup!!!!!!
    you could get an apc ups of 650va for Rs2600-Rs3000
    12-18 min backup for p4 system

    APC 650 VA can run two PCs simultaneously and have 4 power outlets.
    Out of which one outlet is not backed up by battery. So you can also run cooler in summers on APC UPS. APC 650VA comes with 3 yrs warranty (2 yrs on battery). And have connectivity with PC through Data cable (USB port) so it automatically shutdowns the pc when back up is low. Nice naa. Its a robust peice. I have one.

    And what to say about the service, well I got it replaced three times because of my mistake in the power supply (short-circuit).APC people replaced it three times without any objection.
