This generator gives me everything I need in a portable unit. I mostly use it for stand-by power at my home. I needed enough power to run everything and it does that very well. The 50 amp receptacle is perfect for me. The clean electrical output is great for sensitive appliances and other electronic items. Set-up was a snap. I was surprised how easy it was to move around (the folding handles are excellent).
One additional feature would have made a great unit into a perfect one - a pull cord for an alternative starting method. I know the 8000 watt unit has one, but I needed the extra amps of a 10k. In a real emergency, battery failure or charger failure is not an option. Add a pull cord!
Other than that, I can suggest nothing else that would make this a better unit. It is very maintenance friendly. Looks great, runs great. The extra money for a more clean and "civilized" power output is worth it. I guess you get what you pay for.
