Great little compressor Apr 21, 2012
By S. Schmidt
I bought this compressor to supply air to my Iwata-Medea Eclipse HP BCS Dual Action Bottle Feed Air Brush ECL 2001. The compressor is quiet and stays in place. A previous compressor I had in the past would move along the floor with the vibrations. The compressor is oiless, which is a big plus, and has a built in filter. The compressor doesn't appear to heat up nearly as much as some compressors I have owned in the past. The compressor is nice and compact. The compressor supplies enough pressure to do everything that I need to with my airbrush, but doesn't really give you 35 psi on the maximum setting. The most I have gotten is closer to 25 psi. It is still a very good compressor, however, I have to deduct one star based on cost versus value and the lower than stated maximum pressure. The price of the compressor is pretty high, relatively speaking.

Great little Air Compressor Aug 30, 2011
By Erica M. Branch
I bought this for use with an Iwata Eclipse airbrush and I love it! One of the best features is that it's oiless so I don't have to worry about costly or complicated mainenance. I was also pleasantly surprised that it's no where near as noisy as my old (junky) air compressor! Very happy with this little machine! I'm not sure how I'd compare to other compressors as I've only had two, but this one doesn't seem to heat up as fast as my other one, so that's another plus!

I Was On The Fence Jul 10, 2013
By Robert Mrozowski
I wasn't sure that I could get by without a storage tank on the compressor. And I probably should have gone up one notch and gotten the Smart model that shuts off when you're not spraying. But all things considered it does the job just fine.
Many people say that you pay more for the Iwata name. That is true but the quality shows. It's very quiet, I can't detect any pulses in the paint strokes and the small size makes it easy to store.
I should explain that I use it to paint models mostly with Veleho acrylic paints and it does the job.
Technically, it operates in the lower end of the pressure range that my Iwata Eclipse HP CS is designed for but I've had no problem getting the effects that I want.

Great performance, quiet little air compressor Apr 27, 2012
I purchased this compressor for my Iwata airbrush and so far this thing has been great. It's got a water trap filter at the hose connector, a nice and compact shape, and is quiet (for a compressor) when it runs. You can adjust the pressure and does well when I use it for acrylics. When you turn it on it will run and fill up to the pressure you set and then will shut off until you use the air. It makes a quiet humming sound, somewhat similar to an aquarium pump but louder. It also has a small carry handle on the top so you can easily carry and move it around. I've really been enjoying this machine so far!

very quiet and works well. No problems with over heating. I use mostly for painting model airplanes and for weathering. This unit works great for these purposes. I like this unit because one can barley hear it running.
