Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JDRockwallCounty poor performance
The gun is supposed to work with 70-115 psi. In using it, however, I found that if the pressure dips below 110, the gun will not drive a nail flush. I was using white pine 2X4, and the nails were just above flush. When driving into old wood, or pressure treated wood, the nail was about 1/4" above flush, requiring me to hammer it in manually. The only way I could get my nails flush with less than 110 psi was if I could put my body weight on the gun, meaning overhead use was non-effective.
I thought it was just me, so I had a good friend use it. Same result.
I was very disappointed in the gun. I returned it and got a full refund.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenny Works Much Better Than The Price
Using 2 3/8 nails at 110 psi the first nail drove too deep. Adjusted the depth adjuster twice and it was perfect. I dropped the pressure down to 100 psi so I wouldn't have to change pressure when switching to my Brad Nailer or the Palm Nailer and with one change of the depth adjuster it again was perfect. The only problem I have found is once you get down to just a few nails in the Mag you have to re-load to shoot. The Palm Nailer worked excellent. Drove a 16 Penny nail though two 2 x 4's in about 5 seconds. The Framing nailer is worth way more than The price I paid all by it's self and the Palm Nailer is just a freebe. (With the Veterans Discount the whole thing was only $89.90. WoW!)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohninSpringTx Awesome Bang for the Buck! We will be using it to repair and replace our fence line. We're DIY folks.
I think it's a great deal. Not professional grade, but it should do just fine for us DIY folks.
The Home Depot tool guy said it uses the most common nails on the market (21° full head nails). That will make it easier to find the best deal on refills just about anywhere.
Only one problem I've run into so far. The refills I see on the selves don't indicate the width of the nail in gauges as indicated in the specs, but instead the boxes indicate diameter in Inches! Makes me have to pull up a conversion table. Not cool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VWtech Great Nailer
I've put almost 1,000 nailes through this gun, not a single jam. The gun is very sensitive to pressure fluctuations. If the pressure dropped below 90psi it would leave about 1/2" of a 3 1/4" nail sticking out, but this is likely indicitive of all framing nailers. The palm nailer works well (again as long as the pressure is up). But I will say that compared to the alternatives (a $300 nailer or hand nailing everything) this tool is the ticket for the DIYer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MDSTONE Great for the price
I know that if I paid 3X more that I could get a better nailer but I do not have that extra money. I never had a jam but I did have a problem with the nails not feeding up to the tip while vertical. I cycled the nail feed and this moved the nails forward. I recommend making sure you have all the connections for your air hose since my air hose (bought separately) did not come with connections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beaver worth the money paid
This framing nail gun was a first time nailer purchase and has held up to project demands. The nail gun has one flaw though. When you get down to about 4 nails, it won't fire unless you load more nails. This problem is not addressed in the troubleshooting section of the manual. Overall quality surprised me. I would recommend this product to any home owner or the part time handyman,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender Great Price, Nice features, Performance slightly lacking
The gun and palm nailer both feel solid in your hand. Framing nailer shot 2 3/8 nails fine, but left 3 inch sticking out a bit, but I was using a 1/4 inch hose, and the nails were coated ring shank, maybe smooth bright ones sink better? All in all its a good value, I like the extra palm nailer, and for the weekend projects I do Its just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Great first nailer!
Just bought this Husky framing nailer to put together a teardrop trailer. I ran 500 2" nails through it while building the floor and sides. It didn't miss a beat and was easy to adjust the depth.
If it holds up it will be the last nailer I buy for many years.
Haven't messed with the palm nailer but it looks to be of the same quality.
