Do not buy that iogear keyboard, please just don't waste your time with it. Trackball is garbage, wireless range is horrible, just bad. Bought and returned quickly, thought this would be good for my HTPC set up, was very wrong.

The Silicon Power gold dragon flash drive looks nice! Just too bad it's only 8GB.

Also shows there in the banner that they have a Clearance sale this week, where is that?

I might bite. I've used bigger version for the last 3 years or so without any issues and it saved my PC several times (power spikes/outages). I might grab one or two for router/modems/switch (all 24/7) in the basement.
Just make sure 225W is enough for your use.

Don't forget that specific model does NOT have the ability to hook up to control software. In other words, it can't be configured to shut down any equipment / your computer when the power fails and it is running out of juice.

I just had a look in-store. The 425 seems to be less than half the weight of an APC equivalent, probably mostly due to the battery. While it can probably deliver the 425VA as advertised, it probably cannot come close to the amount of battery time compared to APC. The price is good (a bit more than half of APC equivalent) so if you just need a UPS then this is probably going to be the lowest-costing UPS for awhile.

Canada Computers offer FREE delivery to ANY store location for pick up. ANd you don't even HAVE TO pay online. They send it over assuming you will buy IN-STORE. Excellent service if you find the right deals and want to completely avoid paying now while getting it delivered to closer location.

I picked up that PSU for testing and the USB key for school.

Great deals.
