Pluses: Light, good balance, comfortable to use, powerful, easy jam clearing, very easyloading magazine, good toe-nailing, good price for product.
Minuses: Double-fires often with standard trigger (as most nailers do). Called them and they sent restrictive fire trigger (free). Large size makes nailing in joist space, etc, difficult. Can't hold as many nails in the magazine as a clipped-head nailer (duh).
Overall a great nailer. Have used lots of framing nailers, and this is my favorite so far. Not sure about durability, since I do not frame houses for a living (though i've done a couple). Will update this review as I use this nailer more (a big shed project scheduled for spring!).
Having read other reviews regarding its Taiwan manufacture, I was a little unsure of my purchase until I opened the box. I was pleasantly suprised to fine a very well made and amazingly light gun, even with a full load of nails. ... I'd recommend it to anyone!
I'm a tool fanatic and love to keep my tools in good shape. I understand the want for a case, but the box it comes in does a pretty good job of keeping this thing protected and luggable. Box vs. case is not that big of a drawback, nor would I make it a major point in deciding which nailer to buy. If you plan to shoot a lot of nails, weight and reliability make all the difference in the world...especially if your shooting above your head or trying out some new-fangled yoga position hanging off a joist.
As others have mentioned, I have inadvertantly double-tapped this thing a few times. It will definitely let you know you're alive, but a quick call to PC and you'll have yourself a new trigger that will eliminate the multiple bump-fire capability.
Also, setting the depth may take a couple of test fires to get it right, but, again, I've had no real issues with that either.
The bottom line: If you want a framing nailer that's lighter than most, easy to load/use and fires every time, buy this one. When it comes to air nailers, PC knows its stuff.
I think Porter Cable nailers are under-rated in general. The Hitachi's are extremely popular with framers here on the west coast, and they are good nailers. However, for less money, the magnesium PC framer is hard to beat. It is a hard working tool and I have had no problems with it so far. I have owned it about one year and it has been used for framing, sheathing, and decking. The only thing I have not liked is that it was difficult to adjust the depth of drive to allow for flush nailing decking boards with 8d nails. For framing applications, it has been basically maintenance free and pretty much flawless. I just keep it well oiled and work it hard.

I purchased this nailer because of its ability to use 3 1/2 round head nails, and it didn't cost much more (at the time) than an FR350A, or other popular brands. Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by C. Brooks

I bought the Porter Cable FR350MAG framing nailer because of its ability to drive real 16d full head nails. Although this is a good feature, it is not as important as I thought. Read morePublished on August 10, 2010 by Dallas419

Lighter than standard unit very helpful for bigger projects!
5+ Stars! JMHO
The framing crew likes this gun. It's light weight. It shoots the fat common nails that engineers are starting to specify, unlike the FR350A. Read morePublished on October 20, 2006 by K. Housh
