Great size, compact design! Bought it because of that, to replace my 20 year old Cambell Hausfield hot-dog compressor. When I turned this one on, I was shocked by how loud it is! It screams!
My old compressor was very quiet so I guess that spoiled me, but this one makes more noise than a stationary full-sized shop compressor! It's portable, so I expect to be able to take it though the house with me. No way... it's too loud to be in the house at all! Even with it outside, it startles me when it starts up!
One other guy said it sounds like a giant tire inflator with a 4 gallon tank. Well said, I agree!
Just got it, so I can't say if it will last, but I think I'll return it because of the extreme noise!

I purchased this about a year ago for small projects around the house. Worked fine for what I needed. Until the motor fried last week inflating my truck tires. Solidifies the saying "you get what you pay for". I might have gotten a couple dozen uses out of it!! Don't fall into the "inexpensive" trap. Buy something quality, not this.

Light duty work only. It's fried 3 belts already and I'm quite sick of replacing them.
Remember the tire commercial where they say you can return if not happy and someone throws a tire through the store window? Yeah... that comes to mind.
I could have used that $150+ toward a real compressor. Check reviews before you buy anything... lesson learned.

This thing is loud and takes forever to build pressure. It seems like a tire inflator with a 4 gallon tank.

It's an okay compressor, it is extremely loud. Ear protection is required when operating the machine in the same room.
It fills the tank very quickly, features two tanks, and two sockets for your air tools to operate at the same time.
I'm having trouble with the auto-shutoff feature. When power is turned on, the compressor continues to fill the air way past the rated maximum pressure point in the tank and output port, the machine just does not automatically shuts off... Which is kinda scary, and I'm definitely gonna return this unit, maybe look for another unit with quieter operation and working safety features....

Purchased first one for basement remodel. It had a slow leak right out of the box. Also, when you turned it back on the next day it would not pump up the tank again without first removing the air hose. As soon as you disconnect the air hose the tank would begin to fill up properly instead of just sitting there running and not building up pressure. Seems like some kind of bizarre regulator issue.
After several days of that we returned the first unit and replaced it with a brand new one. Right out of the box it also had a slow leak so it would turn on every 15 minutes and recharge the tank.
If it worked properly it would be a nice little portable unit. However, I could not recommend anyone buying one because of the obvious manufacturing issues.

Bought this about 16 months ago to replace my old faithful 25 year old Porter Cable pancake which finally bit the dust (an employee left it on the back of the truck with the door down and drove off. That killed the poor old guy. RIP) so I thought I'd try this out. Boy am I sorry. This unit no longer stops running it just keeps going. Talked to the factory and they said that was a common (!) problem as the unit runs so hard it vibrates everything loose so it doesn't hold air.
And the wheels are held on with a freaking bolt, not an axle. They vibrate loose.
Anyway, we just bought another PC pancake and will send this off to their repair place (at my expense) and hopefully it works for another year (no way I expect to get 20 years out of it) and I've sworn off buying any Husky tools (I've had similar trouble with other Husky stuff).
