I like the vertical. Mine is the same specs but not vert and it takes up too much space.

no one could really explain to me why some had 1hp, some had 3, if veritcal is better/not a good as laying down, so i said more hp must be good, 15gal seems pretty good, and they all had about the same specs with in this price range and it came with some tools. if any one has more insight let me know.

i use Campbell Hausfeld air compressors at work., a little pricey but the best ive used.....dont really know which is best or why....but i think the ones that can deliver the air the fastest are the best.

Looks like a pretty good deal. The only concern would be whether or not it's an oil-free design, since those things are really noisy...

I need to pick up a new (smaller) compressor since I've moved and don't have much room or 230v for mine. I'll have to wheel it between my apartment and my garage to use it, since I don't even have electrical outlets in the garage (I'm hating living in an apratment). That one from Sears would probably suit my needs just fine for now.

i'll know for sure in a bit, but i don't think its an oil free design, some were, some weren't, don't know why they don't make it all oil-free, but i'll find out that question in a bit.

My craftsman is an oil free design and yeah it's loud.

That compressor will be fine for using normal air tools.

Cubic Feet per Meter of air flow (CFM) is what is important, larger tank can hold more volume in reserve and hp fills it faster to flow a good CFM.

While convienent, those coil air lines can restrict flow to larger air tools like a 3/4 impact gun.

Two (or more)stage tank setups are good for constant pressure and are used for painting autos and such.

It'll probably be okay unlees the lug is really on there by a huge gun. Try it first and buy the normal hose if you need it I suppose.
