Is this better than the 1500w for 160 deal?

I'm going to say no because the 1500VA/900w for $169 deal was for the sine wave version which is better for electronics than this one.

Is Pure Sine Wave required on a server or high-end computer?

No point to argue it unless the poster speak up.

I own this unit. No complaints at all.

I bought it in August through Amazon from a 3rd party seller in Calgary.
Coming from an old APC unit, the form factor of the Cyberpower is quite small - something that made me very happy.
My price was $118 but shipping was $26. However, there was no QST. That offer no longer exists.

For my PC, LED display, and 2 other devices, it provides about 1/2 hour of run time during a power failure.

No, the 1500VA model (not 1500W) has more juice and pure sine wave. You don't need pure sine wave for almost all PC but for 33% more you get almost 80% more amp hour.

I've owned an older version of this since Dec 2012. Still runs fine. Connected hardware: modem, router, DVR, android box, plasma TV, and two HDDs. The only device without an AC adapter is the DVR. If I unplug everything except the modem & router, I can get about 40 minutes of run-time. When new I could get about an hour. Everything connected is less than 10 minutes.

Only issue I have is that it doesn't charge well when powered by an old 4,500W Honda generator - which also powers the fridge, entertainment system, some misc plugs, and most lights. If the generator is being taxed, the UPS can jump back and forth from charging mode and battery mode. A larger generator, or not using so much power while the generator is running, would likely eliminate these issues.

Unless you know you need the power and runtime, there is also the long term cost. When it is time to replace the batteries, you'll need to replace 2 instead of one.

I had this model. It sucks. When it was 3 years old, the mainboard blew up. I changed to Tripplite and never looked back. POS.
