Awesome Little Compressor
This compressor surprised with its power and it was not as nosy as I expected. I don't use it inside, so I am not an expert on the noise levels. It comes with everything you need to inflate tires, sports balls and large rafts or rubber swimming pools. (You need a tire gauge for pressure readings) I know it will run a nail gun and I am pretty sure it will run an impact wrench. (Using 65foot pounds, as a limit but I haven't tried, so maybe not or maybe more) 0 PSI to 150 PSI in less then 30 seconds and recovery at 120 PSI to 150 PSI in 10 to 15 seconds. If I had any cons, which I don't, I would like it to have a standard slip on adapter but I plan on adding these items, as I go. I haven't had it long so durability is a question I can't answer; however, it seems to be a well built machine with an easy air release and a tank drain on the bottom.

Great product
I purchased this unit to blow out dust from computers and servers. Does a great job. The enclosed design and the top handle make it easy to transport, carry onto the job and to store.

Solid, fast, dependable!!
This is a pro grade portable compressor that fills to 150 PSI in no time flat. Does everything I need it to without having to wait for it to recharge. The coil hose that comes with it is convenient but puts the air chuck at an odd angle sometimes so you may want to add an extender. Great compressor!!!

Best home use compressor - Inflator
Bought this for an 87 year old active Do-It-Himselfer whose old inflator quit. This unit is Heavy duty enough, 150 psi max, yet light weight enough to easily be taken from the home to the garage to the lake to the shed, wherever compressed air is needed. Pressure gauges are in a console that is easily seen & Read, regulator pressure adjust knob also easily reached & operated.

Best of Portables
Portability with greatest range of use was my key focus. Almost any tiny portable will drive a pin nailer. I also wanted to be able to use for a variety of other tools. It is a nicely packaged unit, easy to carry and throw into vehicle or take up three flights of stairs. The compressor fills really quickly and kicks in at 120psi keeping air pressure consistent for my nailers. I am really pleased with this unit. I added a quick release for use with hoses.

Super Deal!
I comparison shop most items I buy, and although I paid a little more than I wanted to for this compressor, I'm very glad that I did so.

Having owned other Porter Cable tools, none of which have ever let me down when the going got tough.

It is also a very handsome machine, with many well designned features. Seems to be solid and durable. Instructions are clear and concise.

The higher amperage motor, to comparable units, is a big plus.
