Are APC UPSes just no longer worth it?

My first good UPS I bought years ago was an MGE one, which worked perfectly year after year and still works aside from bad batteries. I replaced it with an APC BackUPS CS 650 VA which died after a...

The VS450 in particular looks very cheap.. I don't think I'd want either in any of my systems :)

It didn't even perform as poorly as I was expecting it to. Wouldn't want it anywhere near any of my systems, of course :)

I don't think I'll buy this unit if there's a chance it'll short out thanks to such fancy soldering work... Heck, it makes Enermax's past 'touch-ups' look reasonable and sane :)

Wow, a GX-series CoolerMaster PSU which doesn't make one run away in fear? Someone pinch me :D
