I've been using them for years and have been mostly* very happy with 
them.  Good, cheap & fast.  I have no relationship other than as a 
satisfied customer.

* My latest purchase is a 6u 130lbs APC SmartUPS {Somethingorother}. 
The power cord exits at the bottom middle in the back, and is in the 
prefect place to be crimped when tilting the unit back.  The unit I 
bought was in fact badly crimped, so I had to open it up and cut 8-10 
inches off the cord and reconnect to remove the bad part.  I was 
disappointed that that made it past QA, but I've otherwise been very happy.

Good luck,
