I've always used APC UPS's. They're a little more expensive, but the  
open source driver works well in linux and the batteries on the  
expensive ones last a long time. I had one that I paid $150 for, but I  
keep replacing the battery about once a year. The one I paid $500 for  
has been going strong for 2 1/2 years. In the long run, I think it's  
going to be cheaper.
