    Who’s watching this in 2020???

  2. David Parker on April 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    If I had a UPS under my desk, then I wouldn’t need to watch this video… NEXT VIDEO!

    Why do the manufacturers lie? APC 950VA 480 watts should be 480 watts per hour. It says on the box 350 watts for 4 minutes LIES!!!! that is not 480 watts per hour.

  11. Elvis Sorna on April 18, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Dude is that blinking tiger absolutely necessary?

  12. Harlan Pinder on April 18, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Hi thanks for the information. I’m installing security cameras. How long would a tiger ups 1000 keep the about 7 cameras, a router and modem running for after power failure??

  13. Mahir Fredericks on April 18, 2021 at 12:17 am

    measuring in VA… it tells me nothing with regard to how long it lasts.
    cant we move to WHr

  14. einherz on April 18, 2021 at 12:20 am

    what the hell phone line doing in this stuff?

  15. Carl Berger on April 18, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I just went to tigerdirect.com and searched and there are NO listings for a UPS named ULTRA or Xfinity. They do not exist any longer. Also, I agree that those Tiger eyes were a distraction!

  16. Ben Mitchell on April 18, 2021 at 12:21 am

    My pc pulls 789Watts from the wall. (240v UK) I have a 1000W powersuply. What VA should I get?

  17. Dreamy on April 18, 2021 at 12:22 am

    worst review and also it has not done any help in choosing the right UPS

  20. Jesus Christ on April 18, 2021 at 12:26 am

  21. BloodAcidPro on April 18, 2021 at 12:27 am

    @2:35 am I the only one who get mad by that picture? 😀

  22. Shayne Williams on April 18, 2021 at 12:27 am

    He may know what he’s talking about with ups’ but the way he talks about computers.. iunno… Calling computers "cpus", saying gamers have rocket level rigs, iunno LOL I just don’t know

  23. Shane71170 on April 18, 2021 at 12:28 am

    This video has nothing to do with choosing the right UPS, you never explain how to choose. I am running a video system that uses 80 watts. What size do I need for 1 hour of run time?

  24. Robin on April 18, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I have a question and no one have been able to answer me, my UPS is 375W and my PSU is 650W but my components use less than 300W. So is that a good idea? Or the PSU is always going to drag 650W from the UPS?

  25. Thomas Malsawmzela on April 18, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I didnt quite understand, please help.
    My pc is using 700w power supply, what ups should i use?

  26. rajendra Tripathi on April 18, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Can’t align my attention
    Those eyes 👀 are distracting

  27. Integer on April 18, 2021 at 12:32 am

    So many misleading information

  28. Greg Murray on April 18, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Thank you for the video. It answered a lot of questions I had. Very good explanation.

  29. Norvin Sakiral on April 18, 2021 at 12:34 am

    You didn’t mention the offline, line interactive and online ups.

  30. John Lupo on April 18, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Pronounce "IMPORTANT"

  31. Danger Zone on April 18, 2021 at 12:36 am

    How power ups do i need for a gaming pc

  32. Sealof TheLiving on April 18, 2021 at 12:39 am

    APC UPS bad type of UPS most of the problem is battery

  33. David Arnold on April 18, 2021 at 12:40 am

    I searched ALL OVER Tigerdirect and could hardly find an Xfinity UPS. When I did find one they were out of stock so…. How good can they be if they no longer offer them?

  34. PLAYERGR on April 18, 2021 at 12:41 am

    I had 1000W psu what ups to take?

  35. John Lupo on April 18, 2021 at 12:41 am

    STOP STARTING SENTENCES WITH THE WORD "SO"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Jay Zoned on April 18, 2021 at 12:42 am

    after you turn off ups do you need to unplug it on the wall? or just let it 24/7 (charging)

  37. Scotty Thompson on April 18, 2021 at 12:43 am

    The main problem with UPSs is not whats plugged in to them failing, but the UPS itself failing in a storm. You can smell the burned electronics in it, To me much advertising does not address this at ll ! ! !

  38. Oana Ion on April 18, 2021 at 12:45 am

    My power supply got interrupted while watching this video! How did you do that? :)) I guess I must buy an UPS soon.

  41. Mathew Wyrick on April 18, 2021 at 12:50 am

  42. Gary Pike on April 18, 2021 at 12:52 am

  46. Calvin Weaver on April 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    replace the tiger with a photo Logan’s face, and have his eye’s blinking, would have been hilarious!

  47. Olaf van Tuijn on April 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Use your Tesla voor UPS

  48. Sealof TheLiving on April 18, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Is that the type of ups can use in CCTV camera that can run 24/7 without over charge the battery? Is that has surge that can stay 220V when voltage drop below 220v?

  49. Encrypted User on April 18, 2021 at 12:59 am

    What about ps4

  50. Mordecai on April 18, 2021 at 12:59 am

    can simulated sine wave UPS damage a PC with PFC PSU if the power doesn’t go off? In a normal working condition when the electricity passing through the ups?
