    You could save a few dollars & buy this one on eBay:

    It's a refrigerator style compressor with a small tank. It is silent except when it lets off pressure like any other compressor. I heard about this one from someone in the airbrush community. After reading reviews I bought one. The only bad reviews were that it sucks putting in the oil when you get it (true), and that some people had to clean oil off of theirs because the bottle of oil leaked in transit. Mine didn't leak but I was willing to clean up a mess for the $97 I paid for mine. The rumor is the company is selling them off for less than cost to try to make back some of their money. Now they are running out & selling for $130. I may buy another one just because it's such a good deal haha. Great little compressor.

    Wow, i wish i'd seen this b4 i got mine. I paid£350 for a bambi " silent " compressor.
    Its great and works well as its got quite a large tank so it doesnt start up every 10 minutes.
    But that one there is a bargain.

    Silent air is an excellent brand. Intact the compressors for Iwata are also made by Silentair. They also make Black Panther compressors
