Yes, this was one consideration of mine as well. Eaton seem to have a
lot of different models, quite a few now tagged "legacy". It looks
like quite a few come via acquisitions. The 5PX seemed to be the
current model for this rating in the UK (plus has a longer warranty).

The support for Eaton/NUT seems better for obvious reasons and this is
one reason I am looking at Eaton not APC. However, I do have a couple
of smaller APC devices at home and use them successfully. You worry
me! I need to check/test them again soon.

Thanks again for your help.
