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 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.

I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT. YOU CAN SHOP ONLINE BUT DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME JUST GO TO THE STORE AND PURCHASE. I LOOKED AT EVERY MAJOR HOME RENOVATION OUTLET AND BY FAR THIS WAS THE BEST PRICE AROUND. THE FACT THAT YOU GET THREE AIR TOOLS WITH IT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE VALUE. MY FATHER HAS THE EXACT SAME ONE ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD AND HE HAS USED IT FOR EVERYTHING FROM FRAMING THE BASEMENT TO STAPLING FLOORING AND TRIM. IT'S VERY VERSATILE AND THE RANGE OF PROJECTS IT CAN BE USED WITH IS NEVER ENDING. NOT TO MENTION I NEVER HAVE TO SPEND 1.00 AT THE GAS STATION FOR AIR FOR MY CAR TIRES.

Perfect DIY consumer level set - especially for women.
The compressor is easily adjusted to suit the job & it has two hose outlets.
The 3 nail guns are also easily adjusted for correct pressure and each serves a wide range of home repair uses within each category, small, med, heavy.
The main positive is the weight of the compressor and nail guns. These are all easily used and maneuvered by me, a 60 yr old woman. Plastic has been used for various parts of these tools and it does a good job of keeping the weight down. However, I'll have to wait and see if it holds up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RK119 Compressor failed after a few uses and was thrown away
I've had this compressor for nearly two years. My experience with it is similar to all the aother happy customers who wrote reviews...until it failed.
I only used the product for three projects. First, I flushed the water from a lawn watering system. Second, I used the staple gun that came with the combo to buiild a chicken coop. Third, I again use the staple gun to replace carpet on a cat post. Half way throught the project, the compressor failed to compress more air. I took it to the factory recommended repair facility. After three months and replacing several parts, they recommended another product that I should buy. We decided to dispose of the Porter Cable. I am now in the process of looking for a replacement.

This is my first compressor and I was attracted to the combo set to get the different guns to start off with. I have a lot of "honey-do's" and this has really come in handy. I will say, though, the compressor came with a bad tank gauge. The regulator gauge was fine, but I couldn't tell what was going on with the tank pressure. The tank would pressurize to the cut-off point and was usable, but made me nervous. A couple of emails with Porter Cable and a new gauge was in the mail. Very easy to fix and my first project was a small fence. Everything worked beautifully. Very impressed with this product. I guess time will tell on longevity. Some of the other remarks say to watch it around a year or so. I think if it's properly maintained, should be fine. Time will tell.

It arrived with the larger nail gun having a broken latch on it. The regulator on the compressor was also bad, missing internal pieces, and it won't pass air from the tank to the guns, as the control won't function. I wouldn't mind paying more for quality American-made tools. These Chinese imports are hit or miss. If you get one that functions, then you're OK because the price is so cheap. Often times, however, you get something that doesn't work and the hassles involved in getting it replaced or refunded aren't worth the money you saved.

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.
