I bought my Honda's because we had a EU750 back in the 80's for camping-- and it worked every time. I'm not brand loyal and I don't care what brand other people buy.
BTW -- I checked both my gens and they were both made in Japan-- not that I care. If they are being made in China its sort of ironic to me. It's amazing how time (and money) heals all wounds.
