I've been meaning to, but have been too busy.

There's a lot of FUD going around about using square wave UPS's with PCs, but 99% of the folks out there never have a problem.

The Raider II is good.

Not sure why that store doesn't have the newest VS Series. The VS Series they're showing is the model that was discontinued two years ago, but it's also too expensive.

Sorry. You are completely wrong.

Where are you getting this information that higher wattage is longer warranty??

For some stupid reason, the new version of the RMx is a lot cheaper than the old version in a lot of markets.
