Hey guys, I live out in the boon docks, and the power out here is horrid. I bought a Belkin 1200 VA universal UPS. It works quite well, and has a good backup time. However, recently the power has got even worse, and somtimes when my UPS takes over (happends 2-5 times daily) My monitor briefly flickers, almost like it was in a degauss cycle. The whole thing get's real wavy for about 1 second and then recovers. It dosent happen everytime, but it's been happening about once a day now. Im sure it's from the switch-over time to the UPS, there's a like 60 MS where there's no power. This monitor is pretty expensive, wondering if it could damage it, and if there was anything short of getting a ON-Line UPS that could help with it. ON-LINE, not Line-Interactive UPS, cost in the 1000's ! it's not really an option.
