Noise level is similar to my 3/8" B&D electric drill. Each one was around 70-90 dollars if memory is correct.
I personally have the campbellhausfeld proffessional, loud as hell but works pretty good for the money. I have heard very good things about the air cat. The IR you posted pics of looks a lot like a snap-on. most of the name brands are good strength wise and longevity as well as rebuildable,kinda comes down to what feels good in your hand. Brian
