	And thats very possibly the case. I tried getting an answer from
MGE tech support and sales about this, but I got alot of run around and
them not being completely sure. They did finally offer to send me a 
test unit to check for myself. I declined. I ended up stuck with the 
Ellipse Pulsar 1200 (Vendor I bought from refused to take it back
since it wasn't "bad", just not what I expected) so I just ended up 
using it for a simple PC setup that I didn't need to maximize the uptime.
