I am not that familiar with the Kodak inverter, but when looking at the description there is a key word missing and that is "hybrid".I presume the OP has evolved into a 'general' discussion on the topic.
I was hoping to get some input. I received the following quote and I would like to know if the pricing is in line with what is out there.

The Kodak seems to be more an off-grid inverter and if that's what you want then fine. It just means you on either drawing power from the inverter (loadshedding) or drawing power from the grid, not both at the same time which is what the hybrid inverter does.
The hybrid inverters are pretty fancy pieces of kit - while there is a grid supply, they will supply power to the load from solar and if there is a shortfall then will draw the balance of the required power from the grid.
This just means you are getting far better use of your system and saving more on electricity costs when using a hybrid inverter.
If it were me I would ask more questions about the capabilities of the Kodak inverter.
