    I was wondering if a UPS with a stepped Sine wave output and not a pure sine wave output would possibly shorten the life of my MacPro?

    I have been considering an APC BACK UPS XS 1500VA but the I realized that it had stepped and not pure sine wave output.:eek:

    Does this really make any difference or is it much ado about nothing?:confused:

    Stepped attenuation is common, as it is cheaper to build.
    It will be fine, so don't worry about it. :)
