I’m often surprised by how many supposed ‘IT Pros‘ never use a UPS on their own home kit. Mains spikes are more common than one might imagine, and trying to get a local electricty provider to admit that they’ve experienced a glitch is nightmare., believe me, been there. got the T-shirt.
If (like me) you own an old house or (also like me) like me live in the New Forest where tree branches land on over-head power lines with alarming regularity a simple UPS is a given.
So, the good people at eBuyer are currently offering a ups-come-mains-filter at under £70 ‘delivered‘ that’ll talk to your PC or Mac and peform an orderly shut down in the unlikely event that your mains goes down for say over 15 mins. Better still if a mains spike takes out your kit there’s £50,00 worth of cover.
