The area in which I live and work seems recently have been hit by pretty regular power interuptions, some lasting perhaps for only a second or two, but long enough to cause my office computers to reboot. It's impossible to predict when one of these power cuts will hit, so even with regular backups and continual saving it's inevitable that work in progress at the time of the outage sometimes can (and does) get lost. For this reason, I am considering investing in a UPS, and wonder if anyone reading this post can recommend any particular make and model, perhaps having had previous experience of using such a device. Ideally the UPS would be able to support the operation of all of the computers in my office, which mostly amounts to just one single desktop, but can be up to 4 during busy periods. Constructive advice would be appreciated.
