5.5 Gal. 1.0 HP Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Air Compressor is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 417.

NO AIR FILTER. Loose motor mount. I'm sure they'll send me a filter. But can't use it till then. They need to pick up the quality control of their product.

The only real cons I see are that the motor mount bushings could be softer thus further reducing vibration noise. Wheels are uber cheap and wobbly. Why wheels are on a unit so small is beyond me. Even with the handle you have to stoop over to pull it. The regulator is the cheap part. I will probably replace that at some point. It is finicky to dial it in to your set pressure. Caught it on sale for 20% off with free shipping so at $109 bucks it was worth a try. I use it mainly for my finish nail guns. I don't work professionally any longer as a finish carpenter so this suits my home workshop needs just fine. Definitely not a commercial unit. The way the regulator is mounted to the tank seems weak in that there is zero reinforcement, it could easily be snapped off of the tank IMO. I will build a caddy for it to sit on in my garage with improved vibration control and a manifold for the air hose connections to act as a strain relief on that reg.

The tank fills relatively quickly, about the same amount of time as my previous 3 gallon unit. 4 stars only because the handle on the back could be a little larger so the unit wouldn't tip as easily when stood on end to access the drain valve. Otherwise this seems to be a very good purchase.

I am very pleased with the weight and especially how quiet this compressor is. Another great thing is how fast it builds pressure. I have to say that this compressor is by far the best compressor I have used.
