Looking for welder recommendation

Looking for a welder to weld brackets, tanks, radiators, etc. I need AC for aluminum.

I had a Miller Dynasty 200dx awhile back and really never used it. It had so many settings that I just never touched and seems like waste of money for my needs and ability at this point.

I'm between Squarewave and this chinese made welder AHP 200X 2016 model. I don't plan on welding stuff any thinner than 1/8" so low amp control isn't all that necessary.

Any suggestions? never had any real instructions. I only weld when I need to work on my car which appears to be every couple years. I also suck at TIG for now so would be nice to have a platform I can learn on.

I have a ahp 200 and I love it. Huge upgrade from the Eastwood tig200 that I had before. The arc starts softer, it uses a lot less gas imo, simple to use pulse settings. It's a pretty awesome machine for the price. I recommend getting a gas lens and super flex hose from ck worldwide. The torch it comes with has a flex head but the hose is kind of stiff. Also I have the 2016 model
