I echo kudos to @Dave Mcquire.  I have a APC SU1400NET and SU2200NET 
here that are in need of batteries, but I'd put off buying them because 
I thought it might be best to just buy a new unit.  refurbups has nice 
prices and it looks like a cool deal on a APC SUA750 ($99) that is hard 
to beat (CyberPower 750 UPS does not run for as long and is 73 at the 
cheapest I could find)

Finishing an order now.

I'm not a UPS guru by any means, but these Smart UPS units I have have 
been tanks.  Moved 3 times, I replaced the batteries once (easy to do), 
and are easy to disassemble for cleaning/repair. They are built like a 
tank, too, so I guess that figures (they have a slot for Ethernet 
control and such, and I see cards are $15.00 or so on eBay).
