Good deal.

Champion has good warranty service, brand isn't going anywhere. Use an AMEX for extra safety, they'll take care of you if the vendor won't.

I had this unit but ended up going to the smaller 2200 watt types, sounds stupid but the weight was a concern to me, this thing is just heavy enough to be awkward for those of us getting older. I could just manage to get it in the truck bed but didn't see myself being able to do that as time goes on. If they can pull 10-20lbs out of the next version, it would make it very attractive to me because it's a much more useful output level/efficiency compromise vs. the 2200 watt ones.

If you're going to park it in the garage and roll it around, then this is a very good deal on a great overall unit. The propane option is SUPER nice for suburb / rare users. So much less hassle than worrying about gas, but you've still got the gas option for an extended outage.

doesn't look like any 220 output huh? Too bad. I could really use that to power a couple circuits in the house when the power is out.

This sounds good but I'm a bit concerned about buying something this complex and there being an issue and not being able to return to a b&m with it. Unnecessary worry?

It's understandable. That's something to consider. Champion has good products but you never know. I went the Costco way

You definitely want an inverter generator. Do you need one for your air conditioner and such or just to power electronic equipment? If just for electronic, this one is too big.. You only need a 1000 or 2000w inverter.

Just a projector which is rated around 400W. Would the last one listed above be good? Just worried if it would be too loud that I can't hear movie sound

Great price! Awesome reviews on Amazon.com. I've been looking hard for something like this and just pulled the trigger.

It's quiet compared to normal open frame generators that are very loud like a lawn mower, but not as quiet as the little 2200 watt dudes that you see running food trucks. Out of this group the 2200 watt Briggs is the type you want, but ~$450 isn't a super hot deal on that unit.

If the generator is going to be right in your area then you want the quietest thing possible... if you can run a 50ft extension cord and dump this a ways away it wouldn't disturb you at all.

I'd go with one of the smaller guys if that camping projector is your main use. If you could ever see yourself using it for backup work then the extra 1,000 watts will come in handy and you won't have to swap cords or appliances around as much.
