How long did the UPS power last so you could continue using the computer?

Mine indicates it would run 2 hours and 40 minutes. Perhaps it would.
I bought it for a much bigger computer that had six 10,000 rpm SCSI hard drives in it and 13 cooling fans. My present computer uses much less power than the old one. This ups powers the computer, the monitor, the router. A separate ups powers the outside box that converts the FiOS fiber optic signals to audio for the telephone and 75 MHz ethernet signals down the CAT-5e to my router.

And it does not matter because this UPS needs last only a little over 8 seconds, by which time my natural gas powered backup generator takes over as long as the gas company does its duty.
