Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maddasher Really Good Product, Very Durable, and Attractive
I really like this. I also have the vFan Pro pack and really liked it. My only complaint with the the pro pack was the capacity for paint. That has been solved, this larger container holds 6 oz or 175 ml. Much better than the 1 oz counterpart.
This also includes a 1 oz and 3 oz container. Both the 6 oz and the 1 oz are made of glass, the 3 oz is plastic.
There are two cans of 150 Feet of Energy, and they last surprising longer than I thought they would. Ultimately I connected this to my compressor.
This comes with many spare parts and some replacement parts. I have not had to replace any of the parts yet. Following the cleaning instructions is pretty simple but effective.
If you need an air brush and are undecided, I have two of these and have had no issues. They work great, even with materials that are not supposed to be sprayed. The adjustments are easy and there are loads of videos online to guide you through any problems you may run into.
I was able to use this in my garage without having to use a drop cloth. The overspray is almost nonexistent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matrix Wow! For the Pros!
Wow, this is an impressive kit! I'm a weekend warrior so having a full fledged air brushing kit is fantastic! The kit includes the vFan airbrush, 2 bottles of compressed air, paint jars and a few other accessories. The presentation and packaging blew me away, really shows the fit and finish of the kit. I plan to use this on a variety of projects including flower boxes, some touch up jobs around the house and maybe even my buddy's old Trans AM. Also worth noting that this kit can hook up to a traditional air compressor too making it even more versatile.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 A quality airbrush system with everything, but the paint
Preval vFan Siphon Spray System is a top quality airbrush. The system comes with the following items:
- Airbrush tool with (2) spray tips, wide and narrow
- Pressure tank regulator with two cans of ENERGY air propellant
- Small plastic and glass jars with caps for using and storing paint
- Large 6 oz. Glass jar for paint
- Air hose with 1/4 in. NPT connection
- Extra needle and jar siphon straws for airbrush
- Instruction manual, tools
The vFan airbrush is a precision tool with machined parts and a high quality finish. As provided the airbrush works with an independent air supply called ENERGY. This system eliminates the need for an air compressor making it more convenient. You run the airbrush hose to the ENERGY aerosol can with the included regulator making it portable. This airbrush system is for big and small jobs with flexibility that allows for more independence from a compressor and hose. An optional air compressor, if preferred, can be used and that's my setup when working in or near the garage.
To check it out, I decided to touch-up my steel decorative security door that is downstairs on the front of the house. I used an oil-based black paint, filtered and diluted three to one. I also added a small amount of a flow control agent. I masked around the door to be painted and used a narrow pattern to minimize over-spray. The two tips included give plenty of flexibility. The fine tip can paint a line 1/6th-inch and the fan tip will go up to 3-inches wide. According to the instructions I practiced first on a piece of cardboard to get the feel and coverage of the airbrush. I've used an airbrush before so the application was straight forward. For beginners it does take practice in adjusting the paint's viscosity to get a good finish and control over spray. Besides the instruction booklet Preval and others have some good videos on YouTube. I found using the airbrush easy to use with practice and clean up was straight forward with paint thinner or water. This is a good airbrush that is easy to control and the system gets you started with accessories that make it easier to use.

Preval vFan Airbrush system...Model 100, Internet # 2037136603.
Supplied by the Home Depot SEEDs program. The air brush kit consists of a airbrush, three different paint containers (siphon feed), two aerosol air supply containers, air hose, and two different spray head fittings. Over all the kit looks nice, however the one I received had a air hose with a damaged fitting that fastens on to the airbrush, and I could not use it. The fitting on the end of the hose that mates with the airbrush, had damaged threads and would not thread on to the coupling of the airbrush. I will be glad to return this product, as it is useless as is.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mamajane1234 Only for very very small areas
Before I owned a compressor, I was so excited to get this spray system. I do a lot of wood crafts and wanted an easy way to quickly paint them. I made my “paint box” to control the spray out of an old cardboard box, sealed all around the edges. I got everything together, read the directions and went out to start. I was disappointed pretty fast. Even though I was aware of the 45 second time limit before the can froze up, I don’t think I really realized how quick that is. I figured I would switch back and forth between cans. I found out that it takes more than 45 seconds to unfreeze. I quickly became frustrated with this taking longer than just using regular paint methods. Maybe it’s that I missed something or just don’t know how to use sprayers but this one didn’t help me out at all. Maybe if you have a very small touch up where you don’t want it show – it says this will do that – I wouldn’t know for sure because I gave up and painted the project with a paint pad. If I ever want to spray again, I’ll get a system that will work with one of my compressors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonL The real deal
I got this for my wife and son to share and use. They are both very pleased with the sprayer system s far. It sets up easy and works better than I had expected, but I am not involved in painting as much as they are. Ian not an artist or anything like that but I can sure paint and cover walls in our house very easily, and then my son can do the fine artwork etc. Clean up is fast and easy, and I am very happy so far and would recommend this sprayer system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scott Very wise purchase
This VFAN SPRAY SYSTEM was a very wise purchase. I used it when doing some painting in the house. It was used primarily to spray in the corners when painting the walls and ceiling. It worked very well and is portaThe system also spray very well. It took some getting used to as far as getting the pattern right and the limited air. after getting it set right it was completely awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PopKim Fantastic Airbrush System
I've used airbrushes for detail work on hobby models and other things I've made, so I'm familiar with them but haven't used them on a larger scale before. However, I wanted to give this one a go since I'm familiar with the brand and wanted a larger system.
The quality is great and built to last. It has thick metal components, a reinforced air hose, and a good sized container for the paint. I like that it's cordless for the size, that made it easy to work up high without worrying about pulling along an air compressor. The compressed air it comes with, 150 Feet of Energy, was easy to hook up to the unit and replacements aren't that expensive.
Depending on the tip used, the airbrush can go from 1/16" to 3" and I found the control to be really fluid, it was easy to create even layers and smoothly change the amount with the button. It was also easy to get started with the system in general and the instructions are very clear and every part is explained. There is also a thinning guide and tips to follow in the booklet. The airbrush was easy to clean and keep nice as well.
I do wish it came with a case to store it in. That's not something I would usually expect, but the smallre vFan Gravity came with a wooden box which was very convenient. Since this is a high end airbrush, I don't want to risk getting it all dusty, which could clog it up, so it just would have been nice to have an included storage system for everything.
