Power Source Solar Generator

I cam across this ad in Mother Earth News for a 1800 watt solar portable generator. Their web site is Solar Generator - Amazing Solar Generator Is Like Having A Secret Power Plant Hidden In Your Home and the company is Solutions from Science.
Anybody know anything about this company or their product. I have been reading a lot about solar here on the forum and other places and am still a electronic idiot. It sounds good, but then what do I know.

The inverter is 1800 watts, but the solar panel and battery will limit you on
efficiency. It might power your lights, small applicances like a coffee maker as long as you turn it off when it quits brewing, and other low amperage applicances. Definetly not your AC unit and furnace fans.
