Great price, good product, March 16, 2012
I like to read the all the negative reviews before purchasing a product. After reading the reviews on this compressor I was a little concerned it might not do the job, but I took a chance because frankly I am flat broke and the price was right. I also knew if it was as bad as some made it sound, would make it right.

Some negative reviews complained about leaks: I have not seen this problem. All I can say is unless you get a defective unit and if you know how to put thread tape on (supplied), you should have no leaks. I can charge the compressor to 110 psi and if I don't use it, the next day it is still at 110 psi.

Some negative reviews also complained about noise: Yes, it is loud. However, it is no louder than I expected. The reviews made it sound like I would need ear protection to work around it. All I can think is that there was something wrong with their compressor, or they never listen to their music on 11...ever. :-)

I purchased this.

not for serious use, March 24, 2011
This compressor is ok for inflating balls tires, but beyond that it's pretty much worthless. It's 'rated' to 100 PSI but getting this thing to maintain even 80 for more than 2 seconds is impossible. Also, one of the reasons I purchased this packages is because I thought I wouldn't need to get a lot of additional stuff because it came with a hose and accessories. The hose has to be one of the worst quality products I have ever seen. It is brittle plastic with NO flex whatsoever, and i'm afraid any amount of movement will snap the dang thing right off. If you want a compressor for anything more than tires/balls look elsewhere - you truly get what you pay for here.

very light and portable, March 25, 2011

Great little air compressor, very lightweight and portable and does not take up a lot of space in my utility room. Works great with the hitachi NT50AE2 brad nailer I bought, I get about 40 or so nails before it needs to refill the tank. Glad I bought this separately from my nailer rather than buying one of the branded "kits" that includes three nailers (two of which you probably don't need). The only complaint I have is that the compressor came with a crappy plastic hose. The other accessories were fine (quick changes, tire fill fittings, etc) but the hose looked like it would burst if I stepped on it by accident or just looked at it funny. I bought the 50' yellow rubber good year hose recommended by others and it is working out really well.
