After doing a lot of comparison shopping I'm looking at picking one of these up in the next few months. I made the full circle in my researching where a Wen Generator in a number of reviews ended up coming out as the top budget generator in this size. Then you find a side by side comparison of the Wen Generator vs. Predator on Youtube. It sure looks like the two generators are built in the same factory and the only thing different about the two is the case they are in. Which I would give the win to the case format to the Predator for being more compact.
I'm not in any hurry so I'm looking to get the best deal I can on one of these. But, I would like to purchase it sometime before June. Does the price drop any lower than $449.99 or is that about as low as it goes? I've heard Red mention to look for these during open box sales. If I find one at an open box sale does it still come with a full warranty? Can I add an extended warranty to an open box sale? I'm not opposed to paying full price for one of these but I do like saving money!
