you're talking there about pre-historic versions, aren't you ;)

in the MGE continuation, Eaton has taken over the lead (ie, I've moved from
the now defunct MGE to Eaton).

So Eaton is your best choice if you want something that is well supported
in NUT, and if you want to support NUT.

As per your needs, I would recommend an Eaton 5PX:

Linux / Unix Expert R&D - Eaton - http://powerquality.eaton.com
