What's your opinions on this compressor for $900 used, 1 year old? LINK 1 I was surprised to learn the the motor RPM is 3500. Isn't that a little high leading it to be loud? Can someone confirm that? What about the pump RPMs?

Comparable to the above is the following. LINK 2 It's motor only turns 1800 RPMs and the pump turns 800 RPMs. I'm thinking it would be much quieter. Am I putting too much emphasis on the RPMs?

I'm also looking at the following 5HP models. Anyone know the RPMs or have an opinion on these?
