Any one have or have opinions on the Lows $399 aircompressor for the average guy who just wants to have one.

I got the one that comes with all the Kobalt air tools. I think its 26 gallons its 110v. I use a impact and die grinder with it and I haven't had any trouble at all. I don't think you can paint with it though. This was probably a useless post because the one you want is bigger.

Yeah, I've got the 30 gallon version because I wanted it portable. I love it. Looking back, I should have gotten the 60 gallon because I have enough air hose to reach just about anywhere I want. Guess I can take it to other peoples houses, but that's probably not something I'll do often. It takes 6 minutes to fill completely from 0 to 155 psi. including the 110ft of air hose. That's another benefit of the 30 gallon I guess. Takes less time to fill.
Mine's 110 also. The one you linked to is 220.

I was just gonna say make sure you get one with the wet lube system that uses oil. I got the Dry one that is suppose to use no oil and I burned up 2 of them in less then 15 days. While I was demodding my C5. They do not like air wratchets or impacts that is for sure. I got the 30 gallon one and been happy ever since. I think the dry ones were like 22 Gallons. SInce I got one left I plan on stripping the motor off and using the tank with it to make my setup up to 52 gallons. Not sure how I am gonna work it just yet. But gotta do something with the broken one. Too late to take back. I got it like 2 years ago before I left for the desert.

Plus, the oil-less ones are a ton louder. I have the 60 gallon Kobalt, and it's well worth the money.
