Eaton 9130 UPS feedback

Sorry to say, I've used them and had them eat themselves. They just
die mysteriously and let out lots of smoke when they do. When they do,
however, they leave behind a perfectly good set of batteries. I'd
recommend looking elsewhere... Does Eaton/PowerWare still make the
FerrUPS series? Those were *solid*.
