Okay, this is a pure sine wave generator. I use mine in Uganda, where we have power outages about every other day. I have the 240 v, 50 hz version. It's sooo quiet, not a nuisance at all, neither to me, nor the neighbors (who are only annoyed by the "envy" factor). Starts in 2 seconds with the electric start. Has a pull start as well, in case your battery goes dead. My battery needed replacing after 2 years; it will take quite a few different small batteries. I keep my Kipor outside, and it's good in bad weather. I use it for my home and for my power tools. It will handle any tool that pulls l5 amps at 120 v or less, but I have to cut out my fridge to make that happen. Other than that, it's good for the whole house, so long as I turn the water heater and electric stove off. Very energy efficient in the low power mode, and switches automatically to high power when the load increases.

Don't think of "pure sine wave" as a useless luxury. It's useful. You can't run your microwave without one. I had 3 fans burn out over a series of a couple of months when I was using an inverter that did not produce a pure sine wave. Almost everything runs a bit smoother on pure sine wave, and some things won't run at all.

It's a great buy. The low oil cut-off works (as I have discoved on 3 occasions). Just keeps on purring, month after month. I keep it outside and it resists the rainy tropical weather just fine. Mine just hit the two-year mark. Power has been on and off 5 times this week, and I'm once again glad to not give it a second thought. I notice that Kipor has some upgraded versions now; based on my experience, I would recommend both this generator and the Kipor name in general.

UPDATE: June 2010
Three more years of service, still running. Had a repair or two, nothing major that couldn't be fixed without any special Kipor parts. That's 5 years now, and though power outages are less frequent, it's still quiet and powerful. 'Nuff said.

I use this to supply power for my 27 foot travel trailer. Although it will not power all the electrical items in my unit at the same time, it does work very well if I manage them properly. The air conditioner is the most important item and it seems to work well with this. The noise level is excellent. At my last campout, several people wanted to get the information because it was so quiet.

About 4 years ago I bought the Kipor 3000TI. I had never heard of their product before, and did the best amount of research I could on the company. Turns out, they have been very big overseas for many years, and had just been brought to the US market. The original 3000 I bought was slightly different than the model here. Mine did not come with wheels and is shaped slightly differently. In my opinion, Honda makes the best products from vehicles, garden equipment (lawnmowers and weedwackers...etc.) jets, and many others. I contacted a Kipor retailer directly and quizzed him on the quality and history of Kipor products and he agreed Honda has an elite product, but Kipor has a top quality name overseas and he stood behind the product. I picked up the generator for $900. Free shipping. The only slight issue I have is I have to pull the chord 5-10 times to start it where a Honda doesn't take more than 2 pulls. The Kipor is extremely quiet. I use it to power a cabin and use it as a backup power supply for my home. (I'm looking outside at 4+ feet of snow and I'm not worried in the least bit.) My neighbor fires up his 10,000 watt diesel and you can feel the mountain shake and it sounds like a freight train. These Kipors are so quiet. They have some type of a small muffler system on them and my vacuum is louder. The ability to adjust the power setting depending on output (Smart Throttle) and usage saves so much gas! I believe mine has about a 3-4 gallon gas tank and will run on the lowest setting for around 10 hours. As they become more popular in the States, it seems their technology is changing and there are more options as to what you can do with them. (Daisy chain 2 together to double the output.) Since I bought mine, they have increased by $400. I would still buy another without any hesitation! Do your research before buying any product.

This generator is quiet, reliable, and mine has started every time without much effort. I believe these are along the quality of Yamaha and Honda for about half the price. Would definitely buy another.

Mine's 3 years old.
Has electric start and starts right up.
We use it to power our travel trailer in rustic areas where we are usually surrounded by tent campers, (the camp sites are spread out). If you walk away from our camp site you cannot hear it. We have often had people remark they didn't know we had a generator until they saw the lights on.

I leave it on low idle and the thing only idles up when we use the microwave. We rarely run the AC, 13,500 BTU, but it runs it no problem. It's best to turn the "eco-idle" off before turning the AC on, as it struggles to start if the generator is set on low idle. An electric heater will idle it up.

I love the dependabilty. I can enjoy my comforts and still respect the wishes of others to enjoy the QUIET.

My brother-in-law has the Honda and they are very similar, though the Honda can get a remote start. And thieves target red and blue generators.

I have known of these things to fetch close to full price when sold used so you've got nothing to lose!
