Most modern electronics will work fine. They mostly care about the peak voltage. In fact, a 170v peak square wave is better than a 170v peak sine wave since it takes less filtering to make DC. About the only thing that may have problems are direct to line induction motors.
To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...
