Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Quiet I needed a very quiet air supply to run a test stand. Did and internet search and found this Ultra Quiet Compressor at Home Depot. I had my doubts, but when I turn it on the first time "WOW". You can easily talk around while it's running. June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ultra quiet compressor Very Quiet and well pleased Running it in basement and not to loud that you can carry on conversation /\. Refill is 60 seconds on tank to bad home depot does not stock this item. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by compact, quiet & quick recovery exactly as described in the ad. Quiet enough that you can have a conversation when it is running. it has a quick recovery time when using. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet Very competent compressor. I wanted this for the garage knew that it would get cycled a lot for the application in which I'm using it. As I am working the noise is not over the top. As a matter of fact you can talk and hear without yelling. Seems to be made well and very sturdy. Price is higher than competitors though. Overall a good value. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Really Is Quiet I've used other small air compressors. Loud, loud and loud. Have I mentioned loud? This compressor really is quiet. I use my golf cart garage for a shop. (Don't golf) So, it's not large and this compressor is very quiet while running in there. It works as I expected it to according to the description. Customer service by the manufacturer? The little filter casing was bent ( packed in the box not attached and apparently slipped in shipping under the unit) I called the free number and got a person and no push this for that and another for this! It was a personal conversation and I got an email that same day informing it'd gone out that day! The replacement arrived perfect. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice compressor but pay attention to what comes in the box My compressor arrived in good shape with excellent packaging. It started up easily and ran smoothly and quietly. The unit does not shake when in service and it is quiet enough to speak in a normal voice while standing next to it and still be heard. It is also lightweight and easy for me (female) to carry around. Please note: the only item in the box other than the compressor is an air filter. If needed you are required to purchase air hose, couplings, accessory tools, and such separately. April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little compressor I bought this machine to power a small touch up gun and airbrushes to paint bicycle frames and do other small tasks. It is amazingly quiet and efficient. You can carry on a regular conversation standing right next to it in the garage. You will need to purchase a mini water separator since it does not come with one. An additional $7.00 or so. January 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY QUIET COMPRESSOR, GREAT AIR DELIVERY Bought this compressor to do Airbrush work. It is very quiet, and the air delivery is greater than a noisy higher horsepower model that I also own. The only thing I can say negative about it is the supplied regulator, it is cheap. But on the plus side I had plans to replace it anyway with a 60PSI full scale regulator and good filter/water separator. I am very happy with this purchase. November 23, 2013
