For curiosity, amc, what are you trying to run with it? And if you wanted to share your budget range, that could be helpful too.
You can get a 2000W inverter generator for about $450, I think, for Harbor Freight's Predator unit.
An inverter generator will produce the cleanest electrical output, and will also be quieter, and use less gas, than a traditional generator (with or without AVR). But they *are* definitely more expensive for a given output, so they're usually not the best option when trying to be budget-conscious.
But if you were only trying to run 1000W of sensitive items, and had a $500 budget, for instance, they could be worth considering.
