Inverter generators have more parts to break but are quieter and give power similar to a utility. While higher quality non-inverter generators can be repaired fairly easily, inverter generators are much more expensive to repair and some models are cheaper to replace than to repair. Normal generators provide 60hz power by running at 3600rpm so they have to run at full speed to be functional. Inverter generators only need to idle up full speed if the load makes it necessary.
