I also have two Honda's. Don't use them much, but when I do they work great, no issues. I think I'd go for the extra bucks and go with Honda

The higher your expectations the fewer your options.

The Honda is long life, quiet, dependable, always parts and repair locations available, and worth the extra money. The Yamaha is the same. Others could be as good, but most likely are not.

We all have opinions on the subject. Like an Airstream, the Honda costs more, but most of us who own both the Airstream and the Honda (or Yahama) think we spent more and got something of value for the extra price.

I have 2-eu2000 Honda's for 5 years now. I have had zero trouble. Quiet and dependable.

You may be saving money on the purchase of SOB, however I would not trust a cheap Chinese knock off to last.

There are many threads on the subject of generators, here on the forum.

It is my opinion, don't be penny wise and pound foolish. For a few hundred dollars more, you could go with Honda or Yamaha. Go with the best and forget the rest.
