As a general contractor I have several compressors. At least 90% of the time I grab an Emglo because they do everything I need except texturing. But I've grown fond of this little Senco WHEN IT IS USED PROPERLY! That means if I have a small trim project or a VERY small framing project it does the job, and both takes up less room and is a lot easier to pack around. It'll drive 3" framing nails no problem...when the tank is topped off, but the last couple nails before the compressor cycles always need to be hammer finished. Same is true for 15 or 18 gauge finish nails. When the tank is just about to cycle the nails don't completely set. My workers love the Senco...much to my chagrin. For one, it's light, and second...it takes FOREVER to refill (relatively speaking) and my guys love to stand there with their thumbs you know where taking a break every 10 to 15 nails or so! So if used for small jobs...or trim where you nail one piece at a time while cutting, well then it's a champ. But if you tend to cut trim for an entire room, then want to shoot it on quick...this Senco will frustrate you no end. You end up hand nail setting too many nails, or else you have to stop frequently, unhook the air hose, drain a little air from the tank until it cycles, then wait for the darn thing to fill. If you use it right... 5 stars. If you use it as your go to compressor... 2.5 stars tops. I hope this helps!

I am a kitchen & bath remodeler, and have yet to use this on the job. I have, however, done some preliminary testing in my garage tonight. The results are stated below.

My first impressions are all positive: Better quality than expected at this price (great value). Smaller (better) than expected. Quieter than expected. Now for the tests.

Quantity of nails shot with various nail guns before motor kicked on, using this Senco PC1010:
23 gauge = 20
18 gauge = 10
15 gauge = 5
Framing nailer = 3

To give a comparison to a larger pancake style 4 gallon 1.5 HP Campbell Hausfeld that I have been using for 15 years, which weighs more than twice as much (52 lbs.):
18 gauge = 40
15 gauge = 18
Framing = 13

Obviously, these numbers coincide with the number of gallons of compressed air, as the 4 gallon unit delivered approx. 4 times more nails than the 1 gallon unit. No surprise here.

Recovery time (time from when motor first kicks back on while nailing, to when tank is fully charged and motor stops, with no nailing during this time) = 32 seconds. By comparison, my Campbell Hausfeld takes 30 seconds. It has a much larger motor, but it is having to compress 4 gallons of air instead of 1 gallon. Again, no surprise here.

Noise test:
I did two tests on both, this Senco, and my old Campbell Hausfeld. First I put my decibel meter right up next to the motor, and then I moved the meter to 3 feet from the motor. Here are the results:
Noise level, in decibels, at motor:
Senco = 83, Campbell Hausfeld = 99
Same test from 3 feet away from motor:
Senco = 69, Campbell Hausfeld = 80

From what I understand, 10 decibels = double the sound.

This is a great second compressor. I wouldn't buy this as a primary or first compressor but it works fine to support small nail guns. My other portable weighs 68 pounds and will keep up with 1 to 2 framing or roofing nailers. My shoulders ache from the number of times I have lugged it up 78 steps to a job site. This goes anywhere with a bunch of tools in the other hand.
Other than nail guns, NO it won't do much at 0.7 cu ft per min when paint spray guns need 10 times that, and a blow gun will empty the tank in 10 seconds or less. But seriously, this compressor gives me at least 10 shots from my 16 ga finish nailer before the motor kicks in; a couple more off of an 18 ga finish nailer, and as an acid test, I got 3 shots from a 3 1/4 inch framing nailer (not recommended but if all I need is 10 nails I'd rather carry this in - especially considering that my ripe old age keeps me from doing much serious hammering!)
Last word, the first one I received had a leaky reed valve and it had to be replaced by Amazon - I'm very happy with the replacement and have used it on several job sites.

For my applications of easy carry in and out, it's been terrific for lightweight 18ga. finishing.

On a small renovation project yesterday, 4 doors jambs and trim were easy (1" to 2" 18/16ga brads) The very least of my problems was waiting for the little Senco to catch up. Been using it for about 5 months, shot about 10,000 brads. So far it's been flawless.

Very low noise as compressors go, and neat little rubber suction feet that keep it from skidding around and marring up a nice floor.

OK, a little play on words there, but the truth is that this small compressor is great.Know what you are buying, and then rate it from that point of view. I've seen people here say that this Senco is too small, lacks enough reserve air so it doesn't keep starting to recycle, and all sorts of other comments which show they have no idea of what they are talking about. You don't buy a Prius, or a Smart Car, to use as a tow truck, and you don't buy a small compressor like this to run roofing or framing guns. That's just flat out dumb.I have a large, very heavy, twin tank Emglo compressor for that,which I've owned for almost 20 years, with no issues at all.I bought this Senco for small jobs, where I just need a regular trim gun, or my brad nailer.I have already used this to trim out a small renovation, and it was perfect to attach extension jambs,baseboards, and casing. It is quiet as could be, and so light and compact that it was a breeze to put in my truck, and move around inside the job site. The smaller Makita compressor really isn't this small, and it's very heavy. The Porter Cable pancake compressors are alot bulkier and really noisy as hell.However, if you need to run more than one gun at a time, or to do alot of continous nailing, they are probably a better choice. This Senco really isn't designed for, or well suited to heavy production trim crews in my opinion. However,I couldn't be happier with this purchase for MY NEEDS. The moral of this: IF YOU WANT A FRAMING COMPRESSOR,OR A PRODUCTION TOOL,BUY A LARGER HEAVY DUTY COMPRESSOR.IF YOU WANT A SMALL, LIGHT, EASY TO CARRY TRIM COMPRESSOR FOR SMALL JOBS, BUY THIS LITTLE SENCO UNIT.
BTW, the trim guns that I own are also Sencos, and I've had them for about 20 years too. Never a problem with either one.
