Without UPS, a desktop won’t even last for a second when there’s a power outage at your place. Suppose you’re working on a project, and all of the sudden, there’s a power cut in your society. If you had made big changes to the project but didn’t save the edited files, you may lose the modifications unless the editor or software that you were using had updated the file automatically. Or imagine you’re playing a game and you’re very near accomplishing the objective of the game or completing the mission/campaign and suddenly there’s a power outage. Games won’t save the snapshot of your progress automatically. You’ll have to replay the game to reach the point where you were before the power outage.
Another great reason to purchase a UPS is that the sudden voltage surge can damage the CPU’s parts, monitor, printer, etc. UPS systems will keep the voltage supplied to the CPU and other peripherals you have connected to the UPS at a normal level.
As you can see from the above three examples, UPS is a very important computer accessory. If your old UPS has malfunctioned or you’re purchasing a new desktop or you don’t want the sudden power surges to damage your old computer’s hardware, you should get a UPS. You can buy UPS for a price starting at 2000 Rs. Below, we’ve covered the 5 great UPS you can buy below 3000 Rs:
