Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BRPhoenix It's powerful and reliable.
I'm a science teacher and I needed a powerful, reliable to pump to pressurize water bottles for our water bottle rocket project. I tried 2 other pumps before this one and neither one was powerful enough to handle the job. One of them shut down after a while when it was hot outside. But this pump is not only more powerful, it keeps going even in temperatures over 100 degrees F. I use it to go to 90 psi repeatedly over the period of an hour in the hot sun and high temps. I highly recommend this pump.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JWinPS Worked with only a few uses over a period of 1 1/2 years. Then, completely failed
I've used this only for inflating my bicycle tires when I had to repair a flat. Over the past 1 1/2 years I've had to use it about 6 times. It worked perfectly UNTIL I recently switched it to on. It did nothing. I pushed the switch from on to off several times. It made a loud click when I put it on and it worked. The next use, it wouldn't turn off, no matter how many times I flipped the switch from off to on to off. Well, I thought I'd just plug it in when needed and unplug it when finished. The third time while it was inflating the tire it stopped on its own with a burning smell inside. Piece of junk made in China which in itself explains the poor quality. Six uses and ready for the trash.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joachim Works as advertised
Ran it for 20 minutes to raise 2 pickup tires from 60psi to 80psi. Got hot, but not overly so. Not a dynamo, but works as advertised. Worth the money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DMark Try Another Brand
Overall, good quality with one very important exception. The internal mechical design is great, including a metal gear, not nylon. However, the important exception Is the business end of the product. The connector you attached to your tire valve stem is plastic. There is a metal cap around it, but the connector itself is plastic, which eventually breaks. It is very difficult to remove the connector from the tire valve stem when you're done inflating the tire, and the more you struggle to get connector off the tire valve stem, the more fatigue on the plastic part. It will (and did) fail. Adding to the frustration is this is not a replacement part, making the entire unit useless once the connector breaks. Try another brand.

Pumped slower than I expected but will be good in an emergency.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FixItGuy Good product
Inflates very fast. Long cord from unit to tire, makes the job easier than my previous inflator.
Gage is not very accurate, you'll need an accurate handheld tire gage in addition to the inflator to ensure proper tire inflation. For instance the inflator's gage indicates 45 psi when the actual pressure is 35 psi. Not a problem, really, as long as you have an accurate handheld tire gage.
I would rate the product excellent if the built in gage was accurate.
I like this product better than my previous inflator that had a rechargeable battery. The rechargeable battery only lasted a couple of years before it could no longer hold a charge and took much longer to inflate than this 120V corded product. The rechargeable battery inflator was quieter, I use ear plugs when operating this 120V corded product (not a big deal).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cuisinart Great product
It's a great product at a great price.
I bought this 120 volt model because it runs on household current to keep in my garage to maintain the tires on our cars and lawn tractor. The alternative was the 12 volt model that is plugged into the auto's power outlet (cigarette lighter).
I chose the 120 volt after reading many reviews on a number of sites that the 12 volt models tended to blow car fuses or that many tended to break after only a few uses.
I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Get's the job done
It's not the most powerful pump in the world but it gets the job done when filling automobile tires and inflatable pools/toys. It's quieter than my the Black & Decker pump I used to have. Since there aren't many products like this one out there ("portable" but AC-driven), I am pleased with it so far.
