I have a big noisy compressor for big jobs but need to do a full basement finish and was thinking of buying this just for brad nailing all the trim.

And that is a perfect use for this really quiet and really small compressor.

Before others come in judging the value of another's work and/or basing testosterone levels on the size of the compressor they own, here is a chart of typical cfm needs of air tools. Note that you can run a tool with higher cfm consumption than the compressor can put out for short periods with the air stored in the tank, longer with a larger tank, but if you plan to regularly use higher cfm tools you'll want a larger compressor.

Not bad pricing for something that I will probably only use for a couple projects. I should be able to resell on CL and get most of my money back.

most who have tried flexzilla prefer them, myself included. but the most common hose on job sites in my experience are polyurethane hoses.

rubber is fine but heavy and can stain.

PVC is absolutely garbage, most hybrids are PVC mixed with something and they suck less than full on PVC but aren't much better.

fyi the hybrids that look like flexzilla are not nearly as good.

the lightweight rubber(light grey) ones are nice too

ya I don't like polyurethane as much because it kinks and twists and catches on stuff, but remember that there are different quality polyurethane hoses, I had a yellow Bostitch one that was absolutely annoying, I would almost prefer those PVC junkers but the nicer ones are decent. flexzilla is just nice because it acts like an extension cord, very flexible and doesn't kink or catch on stuff.
