Plasma & Back-up UPS

by givemeaname / March 3, 2009 8:55 AM PST

Shoud I get one that is rated at the Max watts listed on the TV or the max oppertion watts then it is calaibrated???

There is a big price diffrence when you get into the 800+ watts ones vs say 500wts, looking to also hook up my HD DVR (180wts) to it too. Or you think it would be cheaper to get 2 UPS, one 'small' one for the DVR (say 200wts) then a 'larger' one just for the TV.

what are the prices, respectively?

If two units are the same price as one "bigger" unit, then I vote for 2. Try giving APC a call, they're pretty helpful.

And when the heck did you get a plasma anyways? Lemme guess, a Kuro. 151?

not yet have the plasma

It is not out yet, it comes out in 5 or 6 months. Just like to do my home work ahead of time and then I can start doing my home work on which UPS & the best place to buy + my current UPS (APC) is getting old, it is about 3 years old now nearing the end of the batteries life spand, it needs to be replace soon, so I might as well get one that will work right for when I get the plasma & not double dip in 6 months.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
