I sort of thought that was the entire concept here at HR.com.
Nobody (as far as I know) gets paid to provide information (factual or otherwise) or to express their opinions or beliefs.
So give opinions and advice based on your experience, and it's up to the reader to decide the validity of what is said.
A "Take it or leave it" scenario.
IMO, It's OK to have varying viewpoints ... that is one of the best ways to actually learn something.
The OP has never posted back with any concerns. The only recommendation (?) Mr. "red" has alluded to concerns tank size or lack of it. Poster #2 brings a good point, but most guns these days are HVLP, so I recommended a SCFM rating based on that. Still have not seen any other recommendations on anything other than "don't be concerned about tank size", if one considers that a "recommendation" for buying a compressor. You're right, everyone has an opinion. So far I've only seen one (other than mine) in this entire thread.
To the OP - another thing to consider, whenever you buy connectors, step up to the hi-flow coupler sets. These will really perk up any air tools and give better control on spray guns. Of course, others may not see it this way...
