Cons: At its absolute best and under the best possible circumstances, it would only output 20(ish) watts. I had this system hooked up to a deep cycle marine battery. That battery failed to hold a charge after 2 months so I returned and exchanged it. The same thing then happened to the next battery.
Other Thoughts: After roughly a year one panel completely failed to produce power. The company was very nice and replaced the panel without making me jump through a single hoop. Unfortunately this doesn't fix the fact that the system is a battery killing waste of money.

Pros: Wheels were easy to put on. Starts quick. really cheap..
Cons: Puts out 107V and won't even run a small window AC unit without bogging down. Gas pours out of the carb when sitting. I have another really cheap 3000W generator that has a bigger motor and runs everything I need just fine. I was seduced by the price. I should have known better. You should pass on this one.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to someone that I really didn't like.

Pros: Generator started on second pull. Good generator for price point ($249 plus tax). Easy install of wheel kit, front bumpers, and handle. Purchased this generator for camping and home emergencies, should they arise. Again if you need a good generator that will produce this much wattage at a price point of $249, you cant beat it, it would be money well spent. YMMV with these depending on how well you take care of them.
Cons: Manual lacks any information on specs of motor, i.e. valve clearance, torque specs, or how much oil engine will hold. The manual that is provided only gives you basic instruction on operation of the generator. Tried to contact Rosewill for more engine spec information on generator which they passed me along to awsglobal.net, which is supposed to be their warranty provider, only to be told by "Deryll" that awsglobal.net no longer provides warranty service for this unit. So does Rosewill have a new warranty provider or is there an even so called "two year manufacturer warranty" that they even honor?? Shady!! Another issue you will run into is most outlets who work on generators refuse to work on these Chinese built motors, so I suggest you either have a good small engine mechanic or you know how to DIY. Finding parts for this generator may be an issue in the future also. When draining and filling of the oil is very awkward and messy. When filling generator with oil you have to pour oil in slow and check every few seconds with dipstick to ascertain whether you are at the right limit.
Other Thoughts: Suggest Rosewill to provide a better manual with more pertinent spec information on engine when selling these units. Not happy with not knowing if a warranty is provided or not provided. I would like to see a oil window added to the engine build so people can ascertain where oil level fill is when filling. More room should be given underneath the carrier frame to allow for oil to drained into a pan.

Pros: Good price, other than that I wouldn't know.
Cons: Seller is Power Tool Store.
Other Thoughts: The Power Tool Store, a division of Bay Verte Machinery, Inc. which sells this though Newegg called me five days after I exchanged money for this product and told me that they could not give me the product until March because they sold me a product they did not have. They told me I could buy a way more expensive product if I wish. I told them to give me my money back. I wont do business with them again.

Pros: It was easy to put it together. The shipping company did a good job, no problems with the package. hooked everything and it started right away. I got the 15 Hp motor. The price was not bad, I had looked at other place and they were more in price. This is my first generator and I love it.
Cons: So far none.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is Low and has owned this product 1 day to 1 week.
Cons: Failed to run in 'quiet mode' after 10 months despite very low use. Called for warranty repair. After 5 months (so far) Generac has done nothing to fix the problem despite providing them proof of purchase and following their maintenance program. Half hour waits on line, disconnected calls, never calls back, customer support people who are no longer there. I would never buy a Generac-made unit unless you don't care about their warranty because they are one of the worse companies I have dealt with in over 30 years.

Pros: it starts easily, the gasoline consumption is ok, it can generate enough energy to have the furnace, internet (fios), tv, fridge and a few lights on. Perfect for emergencies!
Cons: - it can get damages very easily in transport since it is so heavy (115lb); mine got some metal bended and it was producing a rattle sound; fortunately I noticed it and fixed it (with a screwdriver), and now it works just fine - also it is a little noisy - it doesn't have indicator or how many hours it was used (useful for oil changes)
Other Thoughts: It saved us from Sandy; we've ordered it Thursday morning; it was shipped Friday, and we got it Monday night. We used it for three very cold nights, and we don't know what we would have done w/o it! We love it! BTW we hope we won't use it again!
