Make sure you get a UPS big enough to power all your equipment, except perhaps the printer. When you hook it up, make sure you don’t plug in more devices than it can handle. UPS ’s are rated in VA (Volt-Amps) which is roughly the same thing as watts. If you want to understand the difference, read this essay.
It never hurts to buy an overrated power supply — it just covers you over longer outages and produces smoother power during the outages. Of course, larger rated UPSes (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) will cost more. You can save on your UPS by getting a power smart computer and LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) instead of CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) screen which uses less power. You might power your big power-hungry laser printer off the UPS but put a small ink jet on it.
