    Quick question for everyone. I'm planning on getting a UPS to support my server and network gear, I think I've made a decision but wanted to run my short list by everyone for a second opinion.

    The server has an 850watt PSU, so I've been looking for an APC line interactive UPS with as close an output to that as I can find. The network gear has a nominal draw so I'm not concerned about that.

    These are the three I'm looking at.

    Back-UPS Pro 1500VA
    Smart-UPS SC 1500VA
    Smart-UPS 1500VA

    My first concern is that the UPS be as quiet as possible, but I haven't been able to find much information in the way of noise specs. Also the second on the list is now one of the older models. Generally the smaller APC units have two quite noisy fans but I haven't ever used one of the newer ones, so the top of the list Back-UPS Pro 1500VA is my first choice. Does lack the network management though but I can live with that I think.

    Appreciate everyones opinions, thanks.
