I just bought an APC RS1500. Ironically, I *just* did a pull-the plug
test on it :)
I agree with those who recommend APC. And, the apcupd installed and
worked flawlessly. How often does THAT happen? :) And the
documentation provided is the best that I've seen in a long time.
According to the docs, apcupsd uses a lot less cpu than the
APC-provided PowerChute, and you can't get linux supported software
from APC until you hit the $500+ range (at least according to my
queries to APC).
The auto-reboot-when-power-restores is a BIOS feature, as far as I know.
I haven't done any calibration, but the UPS reports a little over 1/2
hour of battery time when fully charged.
Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.
