Rated 5 out of 5Â by schlafe Great performance in a small / portable package...
At only 30 lbs. and with the placement of the handle on the top of the shroud the compressor is extra portable. The compressor takes just over 2 minutes t0 fill up from 0 psi to 150 psi. Recovery is even quicker as the compressor begins to recover prior to hitting 0 psi. The noise is average in comparison to other compressors I have used in the past - rated at 78dBA. The air pressure gauges are large enough to be easily visible and the pressure adjustment knob makes it easy to dial in the regulated pressure. Overall the compressor unit is well built and appears as though it will hold up over time. The 25 ft air hose that is included also appears to be durable. The FN250SB 16 Ga finish nailer has a high quality feel to it. The nailer is solidly built and is easy to load and operate. I tested the nailer with the included 16 gauge finish nails. The nailer performed well starting at the lowest recommended operating pressure of 70psi. The tool-free adjustable exhaust helps keep sawdust and debris out of your eyes when shooting at close proximity to your face. The tool-free depth-of-drive adjustment worked well to fine tune setting the nail heads. The nailer also comes with a belt add-on. A simple tool-belt hook design that comes in handy. Overall, I was impressed with the build quality and performance of the nailer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lisa Works like it's supposed to
I'm not much of a tool expert, actually the opposite. I used the compressor and nailer to finish a wood floor and quarter round trim. Both tools worked as they were intended. Not rocket science, but it was nice to try something new and not be frustrated by the tools. Less $ than renting, and I have them for future projects.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Blackbeered This B&D Unit is Fine for the Hobbyist
The compressor: it's compact; draws 10 amps; regulator is smooth but slow; takes 3 minutes to pump the tank from 0 to 150 psig; biggest issue so far ... it produces noticeably WET air [even with the shop at 55F 45%RH] and to protect attached tools, I'll be installing a trap between the pump and the tank in addition to a few drops of oil in the gun; the pump works hard [about two dozen shots per 100-to-150 cycle]; label says to toss the unit after Year 2024 [I should be so lucky]. Labels implies it might be made in Jackson TN?
The nailer: it's a chore to sink the provided 2" 16ga 'nails' below the surface 1/32" in soft pine at less than 100 psi [the gun's rated 70-100 psi] ... the piston on my older gun must be larger since it'll do this 'test' at 75 psi [the new gun is half the weight]; since I primarily will be using it to attach oak trim to casework with 1.25" nails, it should be okay; there's an included "belt hook" which I won't be using. Made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by spankyd30 Good little air compressor
This compressor comes with a 16 gauge nail gone. Works well. Just make sure you don't use 18 gauge nails in it. A home depot representative told me to buy 18 gauge and they jammed in the gun. Took awhile to un-jam it and then get the correct nails. Other than that, it worked like a charm and I used it to nail in red oak flooring. Awesome.

I purchased this combo to complete a home baseboard project. The compressor charged up quickly to 150 psi and recharged at 120 psi. I installed 5 1/4 inch baseboard with no problems.
