I've been doing some search for a good ups for my home network/online bus and basic mmorpg game. I found one online its an RT-6000 and i was wondering what can i expect to pay for a used one in great working condition. The one listed is up for offers just don't want to trow money into it at least no more than its worth, seller seems willing to work with me on price, but I've never bought one before, its not until recently that I've come to actually Need it.

Thanks you all in advance for any help you can provide me with.

You realize that the batteries alone to replace the pair are anywhere from $475.00-$550.00 each. This is excluding the electronics/charging system. You are aware that the output voltage is 230 volts? A new unit will run you anywhere from $4800.00 to $5800.00. If somebody is selling one for less than $3500. It's possibly stolen or has service related issues. Neither of which is going to end up being any kind of bargain. I have a real problem personally, skimping on a mission critical piece of hardware. Just too many bad experiences saving a few 'pennies' which ended up costing me way more not very much longer down the road. Not to mention if I had bought new and retail would still be under warranty.

Thank you for your input. The item is $3K and included a server rack from dell listed at 7k online. It a going out of business from a local weather service. So definitely in for it. The electrical is all good, as far as the price of the batteries, it is steep but based on your response, its worth it for this price, so thanks much for the informatiuon

Including a rack and the reason for the sale, which I had not considered. You are getting a deal. Glad to help out. Best of luck with your new hardware.
