Default Best backup UPS for home use?

Hi everyone,
I am looking for a backup system for my home use. I need to power up my home theater system too. This is for a temporary use, so I am looking for something at cheap price. When searched online I found this one ( )
This APC smart UPS has a power of 3000 VA. But I donít know whether it works with two desktops and home theater. If not what type of backup system should I use? Please share your advice.

The question is, how long are you wanting to run the backup for?

Don't get a used APC- the battery has a certain life span and it is expensive to replace. So , It is possible you will get one that will fail quickly,
