    Backup as in "if the one currently using explodes"

    or as in "hot-swap server" style

    or as in "spare PSU knocking about"?

    Ahhh he means UPS. I wouldn't know. Aside from the recent 3 days of no power during hot summer- Michigan rarely see's brownouts or poweroutages... Our work used to have an apc backups pro that backup-powered a PII server, 3 PDT's, the PDT docking station, PDT receiver/antenna, and the monitor.

    But I wouldn't know what to recommend...

    I'm a Masshole!!!
    I have a Tripp-Lite they are pretty nice APC is good too. I have the Tripp-Lite BC Pro 1050 it something like 1050VA/725Watts it's a big one because I have 2 computers hooked into it. Lasts for a long time too. It interfaces with the computer so if the power goes out it will save and shutdown your computer automatically when the battery gets low. It's a great thing to have and has saved me on several occasions because the power lines in my school are really old and go out often. Granted the school building is 139 years old but still they could upgrade the power system couldn't they. Oh well don't get one too big or it's a waste of money I have 2 computers, 1 monitor, KVM, Switch and PS2 pluged in mine. You probably wont need one nearly as big.
