My knowledge in this area is limited - while I thought I made a good call, now I am unsure if I made the right decision. Any feedback is appreciated.
I have a workstation that involves a 15-inch MacBook Pro, two Thunderbolt 2 docks, two external displays, three printers/scanners, about 10 hard drives, and other misc. accessories.
I want to provide regulated power and surge protection to:-MacBook Pro 15-retina MacBook-iPhone charger-One 2TB 7200 RPM HGST Ultrastar HDD
I want to provide regulated power, surge protection, and UPS to:-One AKiTiO Thunder2Dock (Thunderbolt dock) - this dock drives a FireWire 7200 RPM 2.5-inch HDD and a USB2 5400 RPM 2.5-inch HDD using bus power-One 4TB 7200 RPM HGST Ultrastar HDD in a regulated G-Technology enclosure using eSATA (connected to the hub noted above)-One SATA SSD (being powered via eSATA, connected to the hub noted above) - like most consumer SSDs, this model does not have a full PLP implementation and hence is vulnerable to issues should the power fail during a write
I chose this unit for the reviews, because I added up my numbers, and was confident that I chose more than enough battery runtime for my needs. When connected, the total load draw is under half on the battery meter, and the UPS time estimate is around 200 minutes. This tells me that the capacity/output capability is sufficient for my needs.
Thanks for your time!
