[PLUG] Is Any UPS Any Good?

During the last thunderstorm, my power went out for about 3 minutes.  
naturally, 2 of my UPSs failed to hold on and then was totally dead 

I have been underwhelmed by the reliability of the UPSs I have bought.  After 
investigation, I find the batteries themselves usually still have a charge, but 
the charging circuitry is fried.

Most power outages last just a few seconds.  I don't care about monitors and 
such, so I have only the main CPU box plugged in to these puppies.   I had 
thought this meant that I could buy low cost, low capacity units.   Maybe I 
was wrong.

Are any of them any good?
