Transient power is excellent and easily can handle "2x the Power" for a second or two.
Very quiet operation with almost zero AC humming and the cooling fan is not noisy at all.
Front LED Display is handy to check on your power demand and battery voltage.
Very low idle consumption (0.35Amp) Very good to keep your inverter running continuously on a solar system.
Positive & Negative terminal struts are not very strong and you need to be careful on the tightening. I stripped off the thread on one post on mine. Also, the lack of plastic protection boots on terminal connectors (POS & NEG) It will be a good safety thing to have.
I have many inverters on my Off-Grid solar system and the Xantrex PROwatt 1000 is maybe my favor one.
Hope my comments will help.
Some things to consider if you intend to use it like this.
1. Get high quality cables to connect the batteries to this unit. We made the mistake of skimping a bit on the wiring at first (we used the minimum recommended 4AWG), and just ended up spending even more money to replace our wires with the recommended 1/0AWG a few months later.
2. If you connect this to an off-grid service panel that has a neutral-ground bond at the panel, you may end up inadvertently causing the GFCI receptacle in the inverter to trip. Always follow your local electrical codes or consult an electrician to make sure you install this safely, but in our case what seemed to work was to use a 2 prong-to-3 prong adapter when plugging the house into the inverter. The house wiring is still grounded because of the bond at the panel, and the inverter case can still be grounded through the lug on the back of the inverter (to a different ground rod). What this adapter does is ensure that current that goes out over the hot wire from the inverter will return to the inverter over the neutral wire only, and not through the ground wire between the panel and the inverter.
3. Make sure the batteries you're using to power the inverter are beefy enough to handle the power load. In our case we started with one 100Ah sealed lead acid battery, and have since worked up to three 100Ah batteries. This is enough power to get through a typical weekend at our cabin, especially in the summer when there's enough sun to recharge the batteries using our solar panels. We do still depend on a battery charger and generator to top things off in the winter and cloudy/rainy weekends.
4. Consider getting a Kill-A-Watt meter to plug into the inverter to more easily track usage. The inverter does display the instantaneous wattage of the load, but it doesn't seem to be nearly as accurate as the Kill-A-Watt, and the Kill-A-Watt can tell you the total kWh used. You can then multiply the kWh by a factor of 83 to determine the number of Ah consumed from your battery bank.
I would have been in a bad way if this broke down and twice the circuit breaker(s?) popped and I was real worried but I waited overnight and the inverter's power worked again fine.
I had to ground my HDTV and DVD (particularly the DVD player) when using this or too much buzzing.
I almost always turned it off at night and for much of that time I had/have a modified sine wave inverter which I use instead for as much as I can.
The battery cables to it are very thick, I think 0 or 2. It is a couple of feet from the main battery bank.
In 2012, and the first maybe half of 2013, I couldn't afford a better battery bank (and/or my solar panels were dealing with the low sun output of the cloudy winter,) and during most nights the battery bank's voltage would get too low and the inverter would beep, beep, beep and/or switch off from low voltage in the batteries.
Bottom line is that I have worked this wonderful machine plenty, but have generally ALWAYS turned it off at night. That later point may be a big deal.
It is still going strong (as far as I know) and I am very thankful for it. I continue to use it everyday. I hope which ever Xantrex inverter you get works just as well.
Incidentally I didn't set up a fused line to it, though it's obviously a good idea. It does have circuit breaker(s) built in though.
Rule of thumb though, if you can get something that works on 12 volt from your 12 volt system, it's better to do that than using an inverter.
I don't think this inverter used that much electricity when on, not as much anyway as my modified sine wave inverter which is about the same output.
It's been very good to me!
The Xantrex PROwatt 1000 SW (Sinewave) starts the fridge effortlessly and the computer Uninterruptible Power Supplies think it is commercial power. I knocked off one star because (as others noted) the power meter seems to read low at lower power levels showing the 150 watt fridge as .05 to .06 KW. Also, there are no supplied covers for the exposed 12V terminals. Their design does make them somewhat less likely to be shorted by a stray wrench, but they need covers. All that remains to be seen is reliability. I am very satisfied.
