found in T-2820ST's reviews:
The best portable compressor availible - We use these compressors everyday.
We came to like the low weight (lighter than any of our single cylinder compressors) and the fact that it is quieter than out pancake compressors.

The Cadillac of portable air compressors - extension cords can be used); this is the Cadillac of portable compressors. The paint job on the tanks could be better and air fittings could be included, but those are minor issues.
This is a keeper! - I've used it for air guns, various types of light and heavy duty nail guns, and shop tools. Very quiet compared to other compressors of the same size, but compressors will never be mistaken for a 'silent' partner.

found in T-617HDN's reviews:
When Quality & Quiet Matter More Than Price & Power - I researched compressors carefully around town and on the Web. Compressors available at the Borg and various local tool shops are gawdawful loud, heavy, and look to be made of cheap plastic and pot metal. The unit is light enough to carry around easily, and its shape rides comfortably beside your walking legs (unlike pancake compressors). It really doesn't put out or hold much air.
Great little compressor! - I have several compressors - from a commercial "giant" model - down to this newest addition. I only needed this to air up the tires (75 psi on the trailer and 85 psi on the fronts of the truck) and the occasional "blow gun" for clean up.

Compressors/Thomas T-635HD - and this is why I specifically went looking for Thomas Compressors.Since then I have been waiting for my Emglo to get retired so I too can be a proud owner of a Thomas T-635HD

One thing that I did not like when my Thomas T-635HD arrived was a real lack of directions to assemble the few parts that did need to be put on before operation, but anyone with common knowlege of compressors will figure it out. Your search has ended here !

Don't get fooled by tool packs that come with nail gun, air-hose and compressor in one deal you will be looking for a new compressor soon.

Its a blessing - Spare your back one less heavy thing to pick up all the time and get one of these wonderfully engineered compressors.
Light weight professional grade compressor for small jobs - I was looking for a portable and not overly loud air compressor, for my low air-volume tools. Although it hardly qualifies as "quiet", it isn't nearly as noisy as other compressors I've heard. I installed a 16" stainless steel braided faucet plumbing hose on the compressor's air-outlet port; routed the hose out the back under the motor support, and screwed on a quick disconnect coupling. Because the tank is only 2 gallons (to keep weight/bulk down), the pump comes on more often than on larger units, but when it does, it's only on for about 12 seconds (if you're not using air). Some compressors have only a 50% duty cycle, which means you shouldn't run it more than 30 minutes for every hour used, as that could cause excessive wear on the pump and/or motor.

You'd want a bigger unit if you had two roofing or stud-nailers going, but for low-air-volume requirements such as trim work, this little Thomas unit is just about perfect.

September 2006 update:

While working on a home renovation project, the compressor's low air pressure switch clicked, but the motor didn't start.
