I bought this compressor about two years ago. I seldom use it as I have a larger compressor in my basement. I wanted a second one for inflating tires, using my nailer away from home, etc. it worked great... for two years (probably 5-10 hours total use). The piston shot up through the top of the unit while I was using it! It was cheap at $99 so I guess I got what I paid for, but I expected more from Porter Cable.

NOT out of service date yet
I just bought and did run without using tools yet. No air leaking, seems fine so far.
To clarify another review...I do want to say this tank was manufactured in 2020. The date to remove from service is 2013 as per the warning label.
I purchased this in Dec 2020 and immediately read the manual including a WARNING: RISK OF BURSTING stating "your compressor air tank must be removed from service by the end of the year shown on your tank warning label". The label is dated "2020" giving me less than a month to use this according to the manual. Note: manual was copyrighted in 2014, implying the tanks are good for 6 years. I am taking it back to the nearby HD ASAP, expecting to exchange for an entirely different portable compressor.

I really like it so far. This is a great deal for the price! This is my second Porter-Cable 6 gal compressor, I used the first one for over 8 years before the regulator went out. So far so good with this one, but my one complaint is the gauge assembly is attached to the main body by only a threaded pipe, and the whole gauge/air outlet assembly turns side to side with the hose when I move the hose side to side. My last one did not do that and I am concerned that the pipe joint will eventually leak with this assembly moving with the hose every time. That is why the 4 instead of the 5 rating. We will see.

I needed a compressor that is quick, lightweight for portability, and most importantly can do the job - mostly nailers/staplers and air for various inflation jobs. All this with a small profile for minimal storage.
This compressor fills all the boxes. At ~32 lbs its not a struggle to carry it up 3 flights of stairs and the handle is conveniently located to minimize bumping into your leg. The compressor reaches its max 150 PSI pressure in only a few mins and recharges quickly. It is small enough that it fits conveniently into my small car trunk leaving adequate room for additional tools and my tool box. Also small enough to occupy minimum storage space in the garage. At $99.00 at Home Depot (Compressor only), this machine is reasonably priced considering it packs a big punch. Only ran it for a few weeks, no negatives as yet, except it is relatively noisy, especially indoors.

product was tested and functional.
Have an issue though:
I ordered this online and received a very disappointing package. See pictures.
It makes me wonder if this is a new packaging trend of Porter Cable &/or HD for brand new items.
I sent emails to HD customer service (email@example.com)
and followed up twice but all remained unanswered.
Courtesy of a reply should have been nice, explaining shabbiness.
