Hi! Does anyone have any recommendations for inexpensive SOHO UPSs that are
Linux friendly? I'm just after something that will smooth power
fluctuations a bit, and give a few minutes to cleanly shut down a home
server when there's a power outage. The home server has a 650W PSU, and
I've measured it drawing about 80-90W when reasonably idle.

I've done some Googling, and most of the recommended ones seem to have all
been bought out by Eaton. So Eaton have several lines of PSUs, but their
site only recommends their own line. Eaton at least seem to have great
Linux support across all (?) ranges.

I've read some horror stories about cheap UPSs outputting Square Waves and
confusing the poor modern day PSU - although most reports I've read are
from a few years ago. Eaton don't seem to have much details on the output
of their lower end ones, only touting the True Sine on the higher end ones.

These are a few of the ones I'm considering:
