I'm not sure what the other two got but I'm 99% sure its just user error...
This thing is intended to power 125w through a cigarette outlet (you need your own cable).
Or, 500w Continuously when connected directly to the car battery and... wait for it... THE CAR IS ON!
If the car is not on and you draw 500w your car battery's voltage will temporarily drop below the minimum this inverter will allow (thus the fault light lights up, it beeps and stops inverting). Its a fail-safe to keep your battery from being discharged too far. Simply turning off the inverter will reset it but ideally you will learn to then turn the car on...

Now should something change, you bet I'll be back here to report it.
Goodluck with whatever you buy.

i have this hooked up to my solar panel battery bank and it works well also it doesn't use very much power when powered on and nothing plugged into it. Which is good if your trying to conserve battery power. I ran a 32" LED TV and a fan set on high for 24hrs straight as a test without a problem.
Quick Update: Four months and still working well

No problems yet. Ran a drill and a fan from it. Quality seems good. Fan is super quiet on it. I've got no complaints yet great for $21

on the first plug in it let out a lot of smoke but seems to work fine now. Have not tested to see if it can handle the wattage that it advertised.

running flat out fan noise after awhile gets annoying . Apart from that it powers my 32' lcd tv and 20 inch lasko fan with plenty of power to spare . Its good buy for a $20 inverter !
