In the October 2010, The U.K's 'Yachting Monthly' magazine trialled 16 small, medium & large turbines.
I've charted the results for the medium range (click to enlarge)
The Rutland 913 is clearly the winner on power, producing a little less power at lower windspeeds, and for the price, the best value for money.
I have owned a couple of these 913's and have found them to be outstanding, both quiet in use and powerful for their size.
Build quality is by far the best I have seen in a small wind turbine, and I have over the years experienced nearly all of them.
