Really quiet...great for airbrushing!
I bought this unit to replace my Craftsman 8 gallon compressor in my airbrush studio. The Craftsman was entirely too loud to use early in the morning as it would wake everyone in the house up. After you get into the "zone" of your work, you don't even notice the unit kicking on. Holding a conversation while working is even possible. It's great. I love this little compressor! The only drawback is that the pump tends to get a little hot after a bit of constant painting. Good for me though as I find that a short break after 45 minutes or so keeps the fatigue down anyway. As I stated though, I am using this compressor for airbrushing which requires low amounts of airflow and doesn't empty the tank super fast.

Was looking for a quiet, light weight, fair priced, quality made compressor that could inflate to 120psi. I thought I found it with this unit, however quickly found that it is designed for light-duty nail gun operation, and not inflating tires. It took me 20 minutes to inflate four tires from 65 to 75 pounds. Always in a recovery/repressurizing mode. What did I expect with a 1HP, 1 gallon compressor anyhow? Products recommended use and limitations should be better publicized. Drives a mean brad though!

Quiet but not as durable
I bought this 3 years ago. Itinitially met my needs - light and quiet. However it only lasted the three years before it became very loud, extremely hot when operating. Needs to be replaced

Very quiet compressor
This was recommended to me as a quiet compressor for a low-volume indoor application. It is very quiet and also very light weight and portable. Seems to be quality construction. I don't have enough hours on it to comment on durability.
