Just make sure you connect them to the PC and make use of the power
management software, and you should be OK

That particular model consumes 20 watts which, for its modest 700VA
(450Watt) protection, is rather a high price to pay. I've now put it
into semi-retirement (shut off and only allowed a few days a year
connection to the mains to maintain the battery).
The APC Backups 500 that I used to replace the SmartUPS 700 unit
uses 3.5 watts.
Ebuyer lists the Back-UPS as offline as against line interactive for
the Smart-UPS, so maybe that's a general rule. The Back-UPS models are
still widely available, and APC do models with standard mains outlets

I've used a lot of Back-UPS 500s for my customers and I've never had
any trouble with them.
