I heard the MGE product set was designed to replace the "typical/old" UPS
product sets, like the Silcon Series, and that APC branded units would be
concentrated on the "Symmetra" product line.  Keep in mind the Symmetras
above around 30kva are self contained units that are really racked in the
same rack as other equipment.
