I'm avoiding Eaton/Powerware because the lack of usbhid support, the
bcmxcp driver doesn't report much, but I have heard that someone is
working on it. Also a PW5110 500 (to replace a APC RS 500) runs much
warmer than I would like. I'm used to the APC RS line-interactive units
and they don't get nearly as hot.
Otherwise, the Eaton/MGE UPS's have been great, a 5PX and an Evolution.
The 5PX is kind of a cross, it has usbhid support and Powerware's better
battery management feature.
I tested the mge-shut (serial) driver on the 5PX, the functionality and
reported values appear identical.
