Oil free pumps suck.
Why is that?

They are loud..and don't last as long...look into an OILED compressor if you want a 60 gal shop type..if you just need a SMALL air compressor and don't have alot of room, you can find better compressors out there

capacity is your friend..get the biggest you can afford/fit in your space

I would like a 60 gallon one but most of them are 220v which i do not have out to my garage yet...and i wont have it out there till spring...maybe ill just hold off till spring...

What about this one?
It says it only has a 3hp motor though...but at 90psi its 11.4CFM...is that because its 230v?

Check out this one from Lowes. The specs on it are very similar to the HF compressor you linked to, and it's $100 cheaper. I bought this one a few weeks ago and so far I like it a lot. It's quieter than the older Craftsman one I was using, and it can actually bang air faster than my impact can use it, which is a nice change from my old compressor.
