Our Final Verdict For Hyundai HY2000si:
The Hyundai HY2000si is one of the better, low priced inverter generators. It will cost you several hundred dollars less than some of the leading brands like Honda or Yamaha, yet will still deliver some good results.
A few of the main complaints we saw with this model, is that it’s rather big and bulky compared to some other models in the same class. It’s also about 20-30 lbs heavier.
There were also some complaints with the noise level not really being as low as the product description makes it out to be, although this seems to be a complaint people have with many other models too.
This is definitely one of the better models in its price range. Believe me when i tell you that there are plenty of models that cost almost the same as this one and get terrible reviews. So this is definitely one of the better bang-for-buck models available.
