Much less fancy.  The Back-UPS series put out what is essentially
squarewave output, while the Smart-UPS does a credible sinewave.

They handle surplus anything and everything and sell cheap.  www.meci.com.
None of their are current UPS deals are particularly great, though their
rack cabinets aren't too bad.

A local store here has a good Smart-UPS 1400 with a dead battery for $79,
I'm tempted to grab it for additional capacity.  Gel-cells are easy to
come by.  They also had piles of SU 700's with dead batteries for $25/ea
or with good bats for $75/ea, I'll check on them if anyone is interested.
