yes you read right, argos.
i bought this the other day mainly because it is fairly cheap at £70 but also because it has a small nailer with it which i like.. (BTW the B&Q one has a huge heavy nailer)

well i "read all the saftey instructions that came with my power tool" :p
then i took it to the Workshop and tested it out. My old compresser which didnt have a tank was very loud indeed, but this one at 99DB is much nicer.
There is a 6l tank which fills up in about 30secs and the compresser turns itself on and off at approppriate times. It comes with some "click on" (dont know technical term!) connectors. The nail gun seems quite good quality, it hardly leaves a mark where its been fired and it is comfortable to use.

All in all its a good piece of kit for the price!

I rate it 8/10

the bad points are that it is hard to guage what presure its at so therefore have to guess as the instruction book was wrong!

Hope this helps anyone looking for a cheap compresser!

Thanks for the review Tom, sounds like it uses PCL connectors, if you pull back a sleeve to disconnect tools/hose etc. Very handy ;)
