I agree. I also hope it was a smart buy. Those Honda's are hands down the best, based on the reviews I've read online. I just couldn't afford one.
So my goal was to find the next best thing when it comes to noise, reliability, etc. etc. This model is rated at 51 db at 1/4 load. That's very good compared to many of the other portable units.
Only time will tell whether it was the right decision. I'm optimistic based on my intitial use.
