I've seen several around town at the local BORG, Rockler, even Sams Club has a Coleman 25 gallon for $220. My only problem is I can't get anyone to let me plug em in and turn em on to see how quiet (or loud) it is. The Porter Cable pancake one I have is plenty loud, and I've read from the NG that oil-less compressors make for the loudest ones.
So question for the wreck, do you own a "quiet" (I know they're never really that quiet) compressor, and if so what make / model. I want to stay in the $200-300 price range, want a 20-25 gallon upright model, and something that's quiet or relatively quiet. Oil-less or oiled doesn't matter. I'll oil to get rid of some of the noise.
Thanks in advance, and yes I did do a google search.
