I thought this would be a crappy cheap purchase but my experience with the unit has been great. It's effin loud, no doubt, but for what it does, it's actually relatively quiet. This thing pounds out air like nobodies business. I've had this thing plugged in and running for a year straight. It gets a little warm so if you have a small fan to point at the compressor while running, it will significantly reduce the heat signature coming from the unit. This will also help the unit last longer and run better as hot operating temperature adds wear and tear to anything.
