I buy nothing but Quincy units. They last forever and have a high capacity versus others. It's a professional/industrial line of compressors. Avoid the Hitachi compressors like they have a disease. They don't hold up and take forever to build pressure. Consider the usual Lowes and HD tools as top of the line home owner tools but far from professional/industrial quality. But they may be all you need. If you've never owned an air compressor, buy as much of one as you can afford. You won't believe the uses it has.
