Does what it needs to do
I have only used a huge one before but I wanted something for home! I am a small girl who loves to build furniture and so far I have built a huge farmhouse coffee table, several small trunks, shot on some trim work, put together some outside signs, and other small projects! It works great for me!

Evolv Compressor is OK at the new price

A couple weeks ago (8/12) I picked up one of these units.  My tasks involve inflating auto and bicycle tires, blowing out computers, keyboards, shoes, vehicles, and other hard to dust areas.

My unit had a noticeable leak in the quick release fitting and I ended up buying a new set of connectors to quickly solve the problem. 

Once repaired, the unit was fairly loud for its ability, discharged rapidly (within 20-30 seconds) when used for dusting and blowing, and takes about 2-3 minutes to fill the tank again. 

For light carpentry, the brad nailer is reasonable. Due to the low CFM you will run into lots of tools that require more pressure than this unit can provide.

I ended up returning the unit after they dropped the price ($10 short of a 50% price drop).

After researching a bit, I ordered the Ingersoll Rand Twinstack 2HP as it produces 4.4CFM and is the best reviewed unit I was able to find under $300. It'll last the rest of my lifetime if I treat it well and I won't have to "Evolv" again to know what a good performing compressor is.

One last note, while the IR Twinstack is available via the Sears marketplace, goofballs have listed it for well over the going price elsewhere and want a bill and a half for shipping which is also free at the largest online marketplace.

TL:DR (Summary)
I really wanted to enjoy this portable compressor and I might still own it if the original price was as low as it is now. Since I had to return it, I decided to invest the money spent into a solid Ingersoll Rand compressor. If the IR is too pricey, hit up the Porter Cable pancake as it is a much better unit. Watch for shipping!

Glorified tire inflator

This unit is nothing more than a LOUD tire inflator with a little tank attached. Vibrated itself around the floor. Returned unit the next day.

Nice for Around the Home, But Beware

As a unit for homeowners, this little pancake compressor will fit the bill nicely; however, I would not recommend it for anyone requiring the unit for their livelihood. The unit does tend to lose pressure during operation after about 10 minutes, and if you are not careful, the nailer will jam as a result. As long as you watch for this condition and press the reset button as needed, you will be fine (just make sure the unit didn't shut down due to overheating). I used the unit to successfully attach window and door mouldings in my basement.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

very poor

I hate this thing. It has no power at all. One charge will only inflate one tire then you have to recharge. Do not buy this product.

Good product

I purchased this product for small jobs around the house. Already used it to blow dust out of my computer and vacuum cleaner filters as well as using the brad nailer. The set up is very easy use. I will get my money's worth out of this product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Underpowered :(

I bought this product, hoping it would be able to inflate my pick up truck tires. It took too long and would not inflate them in a reasonable amount of time. The motor is underpowered. I traded it in for the 3 gallon, 1 HP oil - filled Craftsman product, which I am very satisfied with :) It's much more capable.
