I'm running around looking for stuff to build now! I got this last Christmas (2010) and have been building with it ever since. The compressor and all 3 guns have served me loyally so far. Projects I've done are a custom built-in desk, 2 built-in knee wall dressers, 2 large planter boxes and my brother-in-law and I did an entire crown/casing/base and shoe molding job in his new 4 bedroom home.
Only thing I've changed is added extra hose. The included hose is great for small in shop projects but for molding jobs you're going to want more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomF Great addition to my tools
Got this as a gift and it has been a great set of nailers and compressor. I used the different nailers on and off over the past year and have no issues with them. They are light and easy to maneuver.
I recently used the compressor to power my framing nailer (another mfg.) and it worked just fine. Drove several thousand framing nails and the compressor never missed a beat.
As with all air tools oiling is critical. For all of those who write about misfires, please take some time to oil and clean the guns first. I have had no issues unless I negelect oiling the nailer before I start a large project and along the way after several hundred or so nails.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edderd Maybe the best tool purchase I've ever made
I bought this to put up some door trim, and have now used it to put in new doors, windows, window trim, fixed some wooden toys, furniture, bird screen, more door trim. No more needing three hands to hold the trim, the nail and the hammer. Now I just set it in place and pull the trigger.
The only think I can't gush about is whether it will last because I've had it only for a few weeks. I'll let you know if it fails me.

Bought this package in 2007 when i purchased my first house. So far i've renovated my kitchen & bathroom (re framing also) , replaced 2 entry doors, replaced 5 windows and countless hours of trim work with this bad boy. I just make sure to add a little oil to the gun before use and it's never had any problems. I also purchased the P.C. framing nailer also and use that gun with this compressor (granted the compressor has to re-fill more, but aside from the noise of it working it's great)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norski Well Made, Pro Quality, Excellent Product, Easy to use.
I ordered this product online with the usual misgivings about quality and and poorly written User/Owner Guides. From the moment I unpacked the large box...everything went right! A well written and illustrated manual for each individual product. Each nail gun/stapler had its own well written manual and another separate one for the compressor. Typically you get some generic manual that covers everything and nothing, with lots of notes like this section only applies to models xxx and ccc....and you bought jjj. I had each tool working correctly the first time with these excellent guides. The product quality is just as good. The nailers/stapler are all top quality, metal not plastic, well designed for their individual purposes. I believe these items separately would run you about $125 more than the kit price so it is like you are getting one tool free. Another plus was that this was extremely well packed at the factory, each nailer/stapler had its own heavy duty box, everything arrived in pristine condition. Compare that to another national manufacture who made a product i also bought online from Home Depot this year...The first two arrived dented because the factory saved 20 cents per box by only putting packing on the ends and not the sides. This Porter Cable combo is a first class act all the way around. This is also the best small/portable compressor I have owned (sold mine when I bought this one), well built, builds pressure fast and lots of power, more than you need, to run these and other air tools. The only small tiny complaint is the the manual for the 16 gauge nailer mentions that you receive two tips with the item, a normal press and shoot tip and the other is a bump and shoot tip. I called Porter cable and was told the second tip (bump) is no longer included in the set but they send you one free if you call and request so I am waiting for it to arrived. I bought these because i am doing a major remodel...to the walls...of the master bathroom and I will design and build a series of puzzle cabinetry that I can build in my shop and interlock them as I put them together.
I am usually a counter sunk-brass screwed-bunged type of woodworker...since none of the fastners will show with my design these nailers will save me days of tedious work. Looking forward to the project now ;-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boomer Great Product!!!! An absolute must have item!!
I bought a foreclosed home which my Dad and I gutted and rebuilt All i can say is WOW!! What a tool! We used the guns for casing, molding, finish work, and anything else we could find. We also hooked up a floor nailer and framming gun to the compressor and it had no problems giving us the power we needed.
Almost bought another brand but was talked out of it by a random stranger who had one and told me i would be making a mistake by buying the other brand.
He was right!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Way2goofy Porter Cable 3-Nailer & Compressoe kit.
I purchased the Porter Cable Compressor & 3 Nailer kit at my local Home Depot. I am a DIY guy on my own house and all 4 of my kids houses. I figured why not buy the compressor with 3 nailers. The nailers aren't cheap to buy alone. What surprised me was the quality of all 3 of the nail guns. Usually in a kit there is something downgraded in the package. The staple gun and the other 2 guns were of high quality. I used the finish nailer right away to attach new chair rail in our kitchen. It cut the time by 2/3's from using finish nails in oak and predrilling each one before nailing. I am not dissapointed with this product at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Great price for so many tools
I have had this air compressor and gun set for a few months now. I have just completed a decent sized trim project in the media room. I added columns and arches. This compressor only had to recharge about 3 times the whole day running the brad nailer and some of the finish nailer. The guns work great, and are smaller than some other nailers so you can nail closer to the wall. No issues yet.
