Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clif great product
I bought a 265 watt solar panel... a 320 watt mppt controller... 1000 watt Sunforce pure sine wave inverter.. all from Home Depot June 2015... for power outages... all works great.. with (2).. 12 volt agm marine batteries.. I NOW HAVE POWER TO RUN my fridg..my tv.. and 2 floor lamps (3) days with no power from the local utility and I also cooked chicken 2 times on my George Forman grill ....LIFE IS NOW GOOD... when the power go out.......

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SolarHobby Poor quality
Put simply this low end poor quality inverter. When it is on it has fan running on n off even with nothing running. Its noisy, like the ocean is rolling in and out several times a minute. It also gets warm, too warm imo. Much of its chassis is plastic and shaped like a heat sink which obviously does nothing to cool it down. You can only hand tighten your cables with plastic knobs for terminals. The LED display is as bright as a bar open sign. The frequency on this thing fluctuates around 61.3 Hz. Maybe I could go on but basically I returned it after a few days after it used up my 250ah battery bank with nothing plugged in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ratherbefishin Less efficient but worth the price overall
Unit was packaged well with OK documentation. Build quality is OK. Thumb screw nuts worthless to tighten for 100 amps plus draw - replaced with SS nuts and washers. Required the 12 volt equiv of 560 watts to produce 400 watts of 120VAC. Judging by AC motor performance, the sine wave was decent and acceptable to me. LED DC voltage readout was always .5V low. Readout continuously shows AC volts (???) and displays DC volts and current draw only momentarily when selector is pressed. Remote worked well and for me tilted the scale from 3 stars to 4.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Berhan It is not durable.
I bout this inverter on oct.15,2014 and connected to 12v battery in November. It worked great for only 9 months and totally failed. according to my experience, 9 months is to short for such types of products. Therefore, this product is not durable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by unclenick Product is exactly what I expected... Great buy!
The Inverter works well, the voltage is well within specs. Easy to use ( user friendly). ALL Equipment plugged in works well - no problem encountered. Inverter is well-made. Pure Sine Wave are heavier than the Modified Sine Wave. Looks and feels like heavy duty.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff101 not very efficient
I bought this inverter because it was pure sine to run my pellet stove if I lost power. after test run it would it only ran for about 6 hrs then my batteries were at 11.09v with the load of 190 watts the warning battery low beeped once for maybe a second then it shut off. I ran my pellet stove with a Stanly 800watt modified wave inverter same test and ran for 34 hrs same test.
pellet stove ran smoother and quieter on the pure sine wave inverter which would be better for the electronics of the pellet stove but I got 28 hrs of run time on the Stanley modified inverter
Also not a big fan of the Stanley I bought 2 of them one worked fine and the other burned up the first time I turned it on so good luck to all
So if running off a car that is running it would be fine but for me seems very Inefficient
