A fantastic choice of UPS! It's a Line Interactive type, which means that it will power your PC off of mains power directly, avoiding the battery altogether unless there is a blackout or brownout, and it compensates for inconsistent mains power by automatically correcting undervoltages or overvoltages. It also has something called "Pure Sine Wave" technology, which is just a fancy way of saying that it's digital DC-to-AC transformer is good enough to fool a high-end "Active PFC" PC power supply into thinking it's getting "authentic" AC.
Runs out of the box, but also includes a USB hookup and pleasant monitoring software (that stays quiet when you aren't looking for it) if you want to monitor your UPS more directly. The monitoring software cheekily integrates with both Ubuntu and Windows 10, providing battery charge levels to the OS as if the whole computer were a laptop!

After several weeks of having this ups I am glad I have it. The power here goes out for a few seconds sometimes, especially during storms. I never even think about or see the ups until I hear that click that means it's running on battery power. I don't do a lot of important work, but it is nice to not have to restart my computer and wait for my router to come back online when the power blinks out.
I have a 500w power supply and was a little worried about only getting the 1000VA/600w model, but looking at the screen I only use around 100 watts under normal use, and even when stress testing the cpu (Ryzen 5 1500x) and gpu (GTX 1060 6GB), it doesn't go much over 200 watts. I have my modem/router, pc, and monitor all plugged into the battery side, and this is one of the few times that I've been happy I didn't spend extra for a more powerful unit.
