  12. Elvis Sorna on May 2, 2021 at 12:51 am

    Dude is that blinking tiger absolutely necessary?

  13. OxfordManual on May 2, 2021 at 12:52 am

    I bet that cooling fan at the back is terribly loud! Can’t stand that.

  14. Scotty Thompson on May 2, 2021 at 12:56 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 ! ! !

  15. Integer on May 2, 2021 at 12:56 am

    So many misleading information

  16. Noel San Gabriel on May 2, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Hi can I use 650VA ups when my requirement is 1000VA(i7 10700 +rtx 3060ti). I dont need extra minutes for works I only need to shutdown the pc as soon as the power outbreak occur. Thank you brother

  17. John Lupo on May 2, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Pronounce "IMPORTANT"

  18. David Arnold on May 2, 2021 at 1:00 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?

  19. Oana Ion on May 2, 2021 at 1:01 am

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

  20. Sophisticated Zion on May 2, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Who’s watching this in 2020???

  21. Ben Mitchell on May 2, 2021 at 1:02 am

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

  22. Sealof TheLiving on May 2, 2021 at 1:02 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?

  23. Dreamy on May 2, 2021 at 1:03 am

    Thanks for the informative video

  24. Givemethejob on May 2, 2021 at 1:03 am

    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.

  25. Olaf van Tuijn on May 2, 2021 at 1:04 am

    Use your Tesla voor UPS

  26. David Parker on May 2, 2021 at 1:05 am

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

  27. rajendra Tripathi on May 2, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Can’t align my attention
    Those eyes 👀 are distracting

  28. Shayne Williams on May 2, 2021 at 1:06 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

  29. SaigaTenshi on May 2, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Fun fact: those blinking eyed tiger is powered by 2 UPS on the table

  30. Jay Zoned on May 2, 2021 at 1:08 am

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

  31. Carl Berger on May 2, 2021 at 1:10 am

    I just went to 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!

  32. Kenneth Reyes on May 2, 2021 at 1:10 am

    Is a 650va ups enough for a 650 watts cpu with 144hz monitor?

  33. Harlan Pinder on May 2, 2021 at 1:11 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??

  39. PLAYERGR on May 2, 2021 at 1:19 am

  40. Shane71170 on May 2, 2021 at 1:21 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?

  41. 1480 on May 2, 2021 at 1:21 am

    I didnt quite understand, please help.

  43. Robin on May 2, 2021 at 1:28 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?

  44. Sachin T on May 2, 2021 at 1:32 am

  46. Sanjoy Roy on May 2, 2021 at 1:34 am

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

  47. Encrypted User on May 2, 2021 at 1:35 am

    What about ps4

  48. Mordecai on May 2, 2021 at 1:35 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?

  49. Danger Zone on May 2, 2021 at 1:35 am
