Does anybody have one of these?
Or can somebody tell me of a better device that will keep a constant 120V going to my system?

That looks really nice.....Havent used that particular one.....I use 2 of these http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/products/all/ups/browse-by-category/professional-series/PR1500SWRM2U.html?imageI=0&selectedTabId=overview We use them at work ( I bought my own 2 :) ) and they work really well...they use True sine wave technology so you are not getting some stair stepped looking sine wave....battery backed up ( 4 12 volt motorcycle sized batteries inside...not light @ 60 pounds ) .
What really makes it nice is that it runs completely silent up until you have about 700 to 750 watt load on it...anything over that and a small fan turns on low speed. I had more then a 1,000 watt load with my HT gear ( 58" Plasma ranges from 300 to 700 watts by itself depending on whats being displayed on the screen ) so I had to buy 2 of them to remain totally silent.
Its nice because in this small town...we see brown-outs...black-outs a little more then the bigger cities....and nothing ever blinks an eye during either....the movie and music still keep rocking even though the lights are out :) The cheaper ones use a stepped sine wave...this one was marketed for HT use...so in ANY situation...too high...too low...or off all together it keeps feeding a perfect sine wave 120v to the equip. It even cold starts...so if they cut my power before I wake up...I can still kick on the equip
