Great generator for Camping. Quiet was what the campground host said. I was impressed after buying a cheap piece of junk made by Lifan that failed in 2 days. This guy was quiet and ran all day on a tank of gas. Just as good as a honda or Yamaha at almost half the price. I used it for a month straight and it was perfect. Purchase this generator with no fear of trouble. Great Quality better price!

The reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because we haven't really given it the real test yet, only a test run. We purchased this for the boat. During the test run it was found to be much quieter than most generators, just like we had seen in other reviews. We liked that. It is also about the size of a medium-sized cooler, which is a plus when it comes to storing it on the boat. It did the job as far as running the coffee maker, microwave, etc. The only problem we had was the air conditioner kept tripping off after a few seconds. We don't believe it is a problem with the generator, but the AC. We will do further testing in that area. Other than that, we are very pleased with the product.

This generator runs as well as my Honda did. Everyday use for six months now without a problem.
There are a few things I do differently than most.
Only run rec90 (alchohol free 90oct). There are no small engines that will run 10% ethanal long term without issues.
Buy the highest quality small engine spark plug you can and install it when you take the generator out of the box.
If using a small engine daily, change the oil every other week.
So far this generator has been great. Any business or personal user that takes care of thier equipment will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris Great and quite
This is a super quite generator for 1/2 price of the competition I started it (after adding the supplied oil) and ethanol free gas (I will tell you now if you leave E10 Fuel in anything for more than a couple of weeks bad things happen) it started in about 10 pulls of the pull start and purred like a kitten. The oil in the can didn't seem full but when I put it in it filled perfect to the top. It is enough to run two of my refrigerators and if it lasts like every other Roybi I've had I will be very pleased. I do wish it was just a little stronger so it would run the ac on my camper but at 2200 watts its not supposed to. (Hey Roybi I would buy another if it was quiet and about 3300 watt hint hint)

I borrowed this generator for years and it was always great and quiet. I finally went out and bought one to have my own. It runs for 8 hours on a tank and is super quiet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by canucken275 Just bought, just returned.
Bought this as a backup to our Honda eu200i. Ryobi states that this has 2200 starting Watts and 1800 running Watts. Neither are true. The Honda is 200 Watts less on each spec and the Ryobi won't run the same blowers that the Honda does. It overloads immediately. The stated Watts simply aren't true. Its impossible for them to be true if another generator that has less wattage can run the same item without any issues. Also, the box states "quieter than a conversation". Lol, I don'y know how loud they talk at Ryobi but this is NOT a quiet unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregB OK, but definitely not as quiet as the Honda EU2000
I have 9 other generators that I use for my business, including an ultra-quiet Honda EU2000. I was looking to add another quiet inverter-type generator to my stock and decided to try this Ryobi. On the good side, the wheels and slide-out handle are handy, but the build quality definitely doesn't match the more expensive Honda unit, Lots of loose hardware shakes and rattles add to the noise. The engine generates LOTS more noise than the Honda, both from the exhaust and the engine mechanical noise.
In hindsight, I wish I had paid the extra $400 for another Honda generator.
