I've been saving up for a 2000 watt Yamaha inverter genny and was looking at them on Amazon just now. On a couple of recent reviews people were complaining that they are marked "made in China" now. I looked at the Honda and Amazon states country of origin is now Thailand. I had been saving for a Yamaha or Honda because of the remarks and horror stories I've read about cheap Chinese generators, But there doesn't seem to be much choice available now. I did notice that even though they are now made more cheaply in China, The price is still the same as it was for a real Japanese made Honda or Yamaha. Anyone bough one recently that was maybe still Japanese built or are they Chinese now?
