Go Power! 1500-Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter takes 12 volt DC battery power and converts it to an exact replica of AC houshold power. It is guarenteed to run any load within their wattage range and has a 2 year warranty. This inverter has two GFCI outlets and can use the GP-DC-KIT3 to connect to the batteries with ease. As long as the load is not greater then 1500 watt this inverter will run it and the GP-SW1500-12 can surge to 2000 watt as well as contains all instruction required.

This unit is very noisy it makes this 120Hz buzz that I just cannot get used to, I definitely know when it is on. The unit seems very massive for the wattage and the vents are situated in such a way that dust and soot-- and knock on wood-- liquids can get right to the high voltage parts.
I was disappointed that it doesn't come with any information about how to interact with the serial port, I have an arduino that could interface with its serial port if only they made the specs available somewhere, I could monitor my energy consumption and efficiency, and in a perfect world work out a way to stack them, but no such luck!
EDIT: Friday Feb. 22, 2013 upgraded from 4 to 5 stars
I have to correct a couple statements and make some updates about the status of this inverter and the amazing customer service that I received.
(1)Customer support explained that the serial port was intended only for use with the remote and could not have provided me with any of the information that I wanted for an interface to an Arduino because it just couldn't be done.
(2)While nearly every inverter makes sound because of their fans and there's always a tiny bit of hum even in pure sinewave inverters because of the high power inductor coils and transformers and such, I realized that this particular unit had an exaggerated problem that was not typical, and unlike my other go power inverters (I have since seen others in action in nearly exact configurations as mine) as well as the Xantrex that I fried, and the other go power inverter that I saw in action didn't make the sound that mine does.
(3) I did eventually get used to the sound so the reason why I ended up contacting customer support for a warranty claim was that it couldn't start a load well below its specifications. Up until that point I really hadn't tested it's range of performance of the higher wattage levels, I paid extra for the extra capacity to have in case I ever needed it. Once I upgraded my battery and decided to use its extended capacity I discovered its mild defect and promptly wrote to customer support with a clear description of my problem and my set up. I received a response almost immediately. I've seen horror stories about users who claimed Go Power has refused to honor their warranty claims but I didn't find that that was the case, quite the opposite.
The agent of their company that contacted me was extremely polite and professional and a joy to work with he put my worries about their willingness to resolve the issue at ease very quickly. Go power stands behind their products! And they have earned my exclusive business for life--eventually you realize it's worth paying a premium for a product that is well built and that will be well supported in the unlikely event that it should have an issue. I'm happy with the way go power handled my issue without any resistance at all, simply by making a polite written request detailing my set up and the problem.
I will be buying their SW3000-24 for a stationary set up for my parents' house, with three 200 Ah 24 volt strands for a combined bank size of 14.4kWH
I recommend their products to anyone who is trying to make an investment in solar power. As long as you install their products according to their specifications, and the problem was caused by a defect and not by mishandling they will help you, following their specifications is something you should do anyway to prevent fires and burned-out inverters (that does not happen with a properly fused inverter. I would say to the other reviewer who has suffered a burned-out inverter: take a lesson like I did from my widow maker experience with the Xantrex, and use the proper slow burning fuse designed for power inverters and follow all other specifications if you want to protect your investment so that it may provide free abundant power security, and peace of mind for years to come.)
It manages to drive anything I throw at it. Connecting it to my bank of batteries was a breeze and I purchased the appropriate fuse and holder. The only caveat is I found the cables to be too thick to slot into the inputs on the inverter so I bought these clever little ends shaped like a point and I just soldered them to the cable ends and they fit perfect.
A definite recommendation.
