This is a good deal. I have used this generator for over a year and it really has been great. Its super quiet and has plenty of power to run my fridge, freezer and a few lights when the power is out. It also just sips fuel. During our last outage I ran it in eco mode and the 2 gallons of gas I put in it lasted all day. I did have one issue with my fuel hose when I first received the unit and WEN replaced the hose under warranty and guided me on how to fix it. Overall, im pretty happy with the unit and would buy another one in a heartbeat if I had the funds.
Inverter generators produce power in three stages – high-frequency AC (alternating current), DC (direct current) and stable AC. This differs from standard conventional generators, which only produce AC electricity.

Conventional portable generators deliver higher output than the inverter types. However, the result you get from inverter technology is a cleaner power delivery that adjusts up and down according to load, with minimal harmonic distortion.

This makes inverter generators very suitable for sensitive devices like mobile phones, LED televisions, audio equipment and laptops, as they prevent overheating and overload.

The lower output of inverter generators can also be doubled by connecting two generators through a parallel connection.

The main difference between a generator and an inverter
When compared to conventional portable generators, inverter units provide the following benefits:

Less distortion due to cleaner voltage.
Greater fuel efficiency due to lower fuel requirements.
Lower carbon emissions, making them more eco-friendly.
Smaller size and lighter weight, making them easy to transport.
Quieter operation.
In terms of purchase cost, inverter generators tend to be pricier than conventional ones in the same power range, due to their more complex technology.

However, this can be offset by their lower operating costs and other benefits.

When would you use an inverter generator?
Inverter generators are often a popular choice for situations where power requirements are relatively low (e.g. compared to a full-size house) and where quiet operation and portability are important.

I didn't need this generator, but this is the lowest price I have ever seen for any inverter generator in this size, even no name inverter generators this size aren't usually this cheap.

This may be the best price you will ever see for one of these, this is a crazy clearance price it makes me think there is a new model coming and they are probably clearing stock of the old one to make way for the newer model.

I paid more than this for 2000w inverter generators when I wasn't in the position to wait for a sale.

A generator creates power (in the case of most household generators, a rotating motor induces AC power). An inverter takes AC power and turns it to DC power. This unit has 12Vdc that it puts out.

This is great. I wanted a battery solar generator thing, but they're so spendy now for LifePo4 batteries that this could hold me over until prices drop.

I think it's more like generator vs inverter generator.
You already got an answer on generator vs inverter.

Inverter generator is superior to non-inverter generator in pretty much every way. Inverter Generators are quieter, more fuel efficient, and have cleaner outputs. The cons of inverter generator are price and more limited selection in high wattage generators. Inverter generator maxes out at about 7,000 watt and non-inverters can go to about 12,000 watt.

Inventor generator keeps the a steady sine voltage for your electronic. Regular generator will fluctuated.
