Broke down and bought the Bostitch combo kit from lowes. It includes a brad, finish and stapler. Haven't gotten to use it yet but turned the compressor on and charged it. It doesn't sound too loud. For my limited use I hope it lasts. I will be looking at higher end nailers if these don't last but it does come with a warranty. It has a slightly higher recharge rate than the Porter cable and I believe it can at least drive a mini palm nailer.
