EXTREMELY quiet and VERY smooth running; you can use it indoors, and hold a normal conversation while it fills. This unit is so much nicer than a typical compressor, it really is amazing. Fills very quickly (look at the specs). Only drops ~10psi in 24 hours (the longest I tested it) which indicates quality. Overall appearance is also high quality. The small tank means it cycles often, but again, it is so quiet you won't mind.

Bought this at local Home Depot a month ago and it's performed as advertised. This unit is quiet - I should have replaced my old Porter-Cable years ago (way too noisy). Now I don't have to use ear protectors. Came well-packaged in Cal Air shipping carton enclosed in Home Depot carton. Well-braced in box, nothing broken or bent. After getting it started and verifying that it rose to maximum pressure, I checked all fittingings with soap solution - no leaks. Recycles at about 85 psi as advertised. I use this with a pin nailer and for pressurizing car and bike tires.

          Excellent product
          This is the second one I bought. Very quiet and it does not take long at all to reach pressure and shutoff. Why 2? One for myself and then sold one to a client who owns an animal hospital.

          Definitely the quietest compressor I’ve encountered. Worked well for my purposes - air in tires and running a nail gun for short periods of time.

          I bought this compressor to use with a trim nailer. It worked flawlessly. I used it in the room i was installing trim in, and it was unbelievably quiet, unlike my previous compressor that was so loud it drove me crazy. Nice and lightweight too. I haven't used it with a framing nailer but for trim work it's a must have. Two thumbs up!

          Bad air pump and crappy customer service
          I purchased this compressor online from Home Depot. About six months into using it, the pump would not engage to refill the tank after the first fill. I called California Air Tools customer care. I was told to bleed out the tank completly for it to refill, and that this is normal operation of the compressor. I have owned many air compressors and have never had to do anything like that for them to fuction. Since i was beyond the 30 day return window, Home Depot refused to accept a return or exchange. Now here it is, over a year later, and the compressor flat out wont work much at all. It will charge the tank at start up, but fail to refill unless I turn it off, let it sit for 30 min or so and turn it back on. I DO NOT recommend this compressor. Its garbage and Califirnia Air Tools customer service SUCKS.

            Excellent compressor! It is really a treat not to have some super loud compressor startle you each time it starts next to you. It is very quiet and has a fast recovery. I never realized one was available as nice and affordable as this one.

            I wanted a compressor that is quiet and easy to pick up and carry. My old pancake compressor got a rust hole in the tank. This one is extremely quiet as advertised. I like the drain valve that's easy to access. I use it for running pneumatic nailers on remodelling projects and whenever else I need portable compressed air. I like it.
