1) great for emergencies - We own the older version of this generator. The only difference I see is the guage. Our guage is digital and shows voltage, hertz & hours of operation. After hurricane sandy took out our power we used ours to power the sump pump as needed & run the frig and freezer. This is only a 1200 watt continuous generator & will not run lights, frig, sump pump etc. all at the same time. Sump pump & a light - yes. Frig, freezer and maybe a light - yes. The initial surg of power for a sump pump can be 1500 watts. Freezers and refrigerators cycle off and on so are not loading the generator continuously. So yes, this generator can run everything you need, just not at the same time.

2) Worth Every Penny! - I have been an industrial electrician for 30 years and have found that high quality tools are a necessity for work. Don't let this "off name" or "made in china" keep you from purchasing this generator. It is constructed of high quality materials, over head valves and cast iron sleeve and the generator is machined alunimum, not stamped steel. It has double rubber mounts for zero viberation. After 5 hours of contineous use at 3/4 load it used less then one gallon of fuel and the generator body was warm, not hot! It was packaged in 2 layers of very heavy cardboard and foam liner which could handle drops and extreme shipping abuse. I have put several hours on my unit with no issues. It starts easy, makes the transition from no load to full load and back again very smooth. It has the sound of quality, not a cheep sound. Also very quiet and light.
My unit is not the one pictured, it is 1400/1800 watts not 1200/1500 as pictured, it also is 6.2 pounds heavier then described. It has the same motor, but i believe this newer version has a larger generator. It also has a fuel guage. It comes with a large full color seven step easy start guide. If you are considering purchasing this unit make sure what you expect to operate fitts into the watt range, also it is rated for 11.7 amps. Take the time to read the owners manual and follow all instructions and you should get years of trouble free service.
