    CHICAGO, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Lite, a world leader in the
 manufacture of power protection equipment, announces new lower retail prices
 for its popular Internet Office 280 UPS System.  The feature-packed Internet
 Office 280 now offers both the smallest footprint and lowest price tag of any
 UPS system in its class.
     The new suggested retail price for the Internet Office is now $99.00,
 representing a $10.00 savings over its past M.S.R.P. of $109.00.
     "As more consumers look for higher levels of power protection,
 increasingly their choice is a UPS system over a surge suppressor," relates
 Steve Esser, V.P. of Retail Sales for Tripp Lite.  "The Internet Office 280
 represents UPS protection at a price comparable to high end surge suppressors.
 Our new pricing wins high marks with both retailers and consumers wanting
 affordable UPS protection for personal computers."
     The Internet Office 280 features reliable battery backup to keep computers
 and Internet connections up during blackouts.  Six surge-protected outlets (3
 of which also provide battery backup) protect equipment -- including
 printers -- against damaging surges and lightning strikes.  Built-in surge
 protection for phone and 10Base-T datalines is also a standard feature.
 $25,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance guarantees the protection of equipment
 connected to the Internet Office 280.
