New Xantrex Freeedom SW inverter/chargers

These are shipping in mid March and are now priced on CME, Defender etc.
How do the features compare to the more expensive Victron and Mastervolt 3kva products?

bstronger, We may have had this discussion on another board. But comparing the "features" Of the Freedom to the Mastervolt and Victron does not give you enough information to make a decision based on price alone of these units. The Mastervolt and Victron, IMO, are high quality dependable units with very good support from the manufacturer, as well as distributors. The reliabilty and quality are what you are paying a higher price for and not features, although the capabilities of both of these units surpass the Xantrex in my opinion. WG

Waterwayguy - What capabilities surpass the Xantrex? Most viewers are interested in specifics. If you are a professional installer let us all know what products you carry and why specifically you do not carry the competitors. You know what specific means.
Thanks, Brian

Brian, I don't sell anything although I have been an installation tech for a lot of years, so I don't carry any products. I will install any product a boat owner asks me to, but I will also give my opinion, but the final decision falls on the owner. A look at the Xantrex, Mastervolt and Victron websites will give you all of the specifications and details you will want. WG
