When I received my compressor the cardboard box it was shipped in was severely damaged on one side but after inspection of the compressor I found no damage. I would recommend additional interior packaging. I broke in the compressor as the instructions outlined, I found the compressor to be very quite much more so than my old direct drive compressor. It is well made and fairly easy to move around. Reaching the drain at the bottom of the compressor is a might mare. I had to get on my hands and knees just to reach under the compressor but found that there is insufficient clearance between the floor and the bottom of the unit to fit your hand under and open the drain. I had to tilt the compressor to reach under and was unable to use my fingers to open the valve. I contacted the service rep at DeWalt via e-mail, they replied very quick and were very helpful but they informed me that there was no after factory fix to this issue. Other than that I am very satisfied with the compressor and would recommend its purchase.

I have had the compressor a month now and have not had any problems. It is not noisy in my garage. Maybe around 70 decibels. It runs smooth and keeps up with all my automotive tools. It is a perfect fit for me and the automotive repair work that I do out of my garage. It seems to be well made. The compressor does not take long to charge the tank and does not constantly run. Like most compressors the drain valve is at the bottom of the tank but I do not have a problem reaching it like some other owners who seem too. Many homes have shared 15 amp circuits and on start up it will draw slightly more amps and trip the breaker. So I recommend a dedicated 20 amp circuit which I installed for my unit. It has not tripped the breaker once on the 20 amp circuit. I did a leak test and it has maintained the same tank pressure for 1 week and would probably continue to do so. I am very pleased with the quality and construction.

The compressor arrived by truck. The driver stored it where I asked him to. The package contained the compressor and two owners manuals. I followed the break-in procedure then used the machine right away. The tank filled quickly and was ready to go. This is a well constructed and well painted machine. It is perfect for a homeowner who doesn't need the larger 240 V models. I would only suggest that a shutoff valve be placed between the tank and the hose, along with the included pressure regulator. Great machine so far!

Performs as expected and quiet. Nice compressor. Haven't owned it long enough to evaluate longevity.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by naknet Nice compressor overall; shipping carton inadequate
Good overall performance; draws less current than my old Sanborn 2 HP compressor, which often popped the 15amp breaker. Fairly quiet operation--for a compressor. Would have preferred semi-pneumatic tires instead of the inflatable ones, although I don't plan on moving it much. Drain valve poorly placed under the tank; very difficult to reach and open (screw-type) unless the compressor is tipped diagonally. (Should have an elbow and pipe extension.)
The shipping carton really needs to be reinforced and padded better, since that's where the delicate parts are. Compressor arrived with one gauge smashed and the compressor transfer tube (air outlet pipe) was bent and leaking air. I straightened and tightened the tube and have temporarily installed a gauge from my old (donor) compressor.
Hoping this compressor lasts as long as my old one (30+ years). However, the tank is certified for only ten years use; cost of replacing it unknown.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey Great compressor -- poor shipping speed.
Product was very good. Shipping company was slow and not that customer friendly.

The compressor is relative quite. Has worked well for the small jobs I have in the shop. Using a 18 ga brad nailer for assembly the tank is big enough that the pump only runs every other hour.
