Thanks to all for your wisdom. We decided to go with the Generac and it should be here next week. Although I have always had good luck with anything that says Honda on it, the cost is what really made the difference. If we planned on using it a lot I would have gone with Honda, but we only plan to use it occasionally. Incidentally we got the 3600 watt Generac from ECGenerators for only $1368. Thanks again!
