SMX 1500 vs SMT1500

This was originally posted on APC forums on 6/13/2016


i am in need of a new ups, but i want to get the right one.  i need about 800-900 watts, and run time of about 5-10 minutes (just enough to gracefully power things down)

Both the SMX1500 and SMT1500 would seem to work, but the price difference is substantial; what am i missing?

i know the SMT model is rack mount which isnt needed at this point; are there any other differences?  i cant tell from the specs; not sure what to look for.

im running 3 small nas boxes/servers and a desktop computer; power seems to be under 500 watts typically 

thanks,

mark

SMX is expandable with external battery packs for additional runtime. SMT is not.
