Things I liked:No more pumping, reasonably quick and quiet (about as loud as a sewing machine) in refilling tanks. In fact, whatever you choose as a first stage to this will be louder. Customer support from the Shoebox main company is top notch, I had a few teething problems, both of which were solved quickly and without drama. Changing the fill pressure is pretty easy, I marked the pressure switch for 200 bar and 300 bar fills for easy switching.
Things I would have changed:There is a bit of regular maintenance involved, but everything is explained very well in either the manual or online at the shoebox sight via videos. Anyone with a reasonable amount of technical ability will be fine repairing/maintaining the compressor. An easily seen outlet pressure gauge would be a nice touch, manipulating the rifle or tank while filling is an inconvenience at the least.
What others should know:I found it best to use some tin snips to slot the front cover where the screws are. I simply loosen them now to slide the front cover off. I also used a tiny squirrel cage fan to cool the ac motor since it gets pretty warm after marathon filling sessions in the summer. For changing pressures I found a flat blade screwdriver hex bit is best for the task, use a scribe or a sharpie to mark pressures. For the price, this is pretty much a must have for any pcp air gunner; it's one of those tools where you wonder why you waited so long to purchase one after it's first use!
Things I liked:This actually works quite well. It's fairly quiet. Filling a large 4500psi tank from 0 to 4500 takes about 12 hours (rarely done). Filling a large tank from 3000PSI to 4500PSI typically takes 3-4 hours for me.
Things I would have changed:In order to service (lube) this, you need to open it up every 2ish hours to lube the shafts. The front cover is held in place by 4 allen screws. Typically you take the front cover off while filling. The screw connectors should be redesigned so that the front cover can be opened and closed easily without removing the screws everytime.
What others should know:If you are in an area that is humid (like the pacific northwest), use a good dessicant water remover/filter, as you will get water in your tank otherwise. Normal compressor water separators do NOT do the job.
Things I liked:What can you say.. definitely works, fills my Air Venturi 90 cui in about 2hr 20min.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
