That Husky 21 degree framing nailer is fantastic for the money. If you're a pro using it every day you'll probably want to pony up the big bucks for a Senco or Hitachi but for just about any homeowner type use it's probably all you'll ever need. I've run several thousand nails through mine and I've never had a jam. Lightweight, too.

Reviews on HD.com are similarly positive.

You're much better off with the Ridgid Brad nailer with lifetime warranty. Magnesium body so it's lighter and better gun. Not much more. BF may have the 2 gun combo sale or similar package on some of them.
You should consider the 16ga finish nailer though for trim work. The 18ga brad would be for your wood working.

The 2pc $60 set is good for the pinner alone. Ridgid version is about $100 alone.

I only have experience with a cordless - I like it - 20v Porter Cable - I have used it for trim - etc - light duty. I recently had a contractor put in some doors and windows and he uses the same nailer.

Cordless are expensive, big, and heavy compared to pneumatic nailers, but you get to lose the hose and compressor. They also have a bit of a lag than can be annoying.

I've minimized the negatives of pneumatic by getting a small quiet compressor and using a nice flexible hose.

I've had the Ridgid R250AF18 18v 15 gauge nailer for over 5 years and really like it. The portability aspect is great and it shoots a broad range of brads and nails. It was more expensive than getting a cheap pancake compressor and a pneumatic nailer but if you already have a compressor then go with the pneumatic nailer. The stupid thing I didn't end up doing was registering it for the lifetime warranty. If you don't register in time, you only get 3 years since the date of purchase. To date though, I've only had to pony up $40 for a new 2mAh battery.

The downsides with it are:
  • It came with a small 1.5mAh battery which doesn't last long if you're putting up trim and driving a lot.
  • It doesn't have enough beans to go through a thick hardwood (like a stair tread).
  • Lastly, eventually crud builds up on the internal driving mechanism so it gets stuck or mis-fires. You'll have to clean and lube it routinely to have it function smoothly.
There's a reason pro's use pneumatic ones because of easy of use and maintenance. A cheap Porter Cable pancake compressor (currently $99 on Amazon) and the above nailers would probably be the best option since you can use a compressor for so many other uses than a cordless nailer.

I have the 18 gauge, have used lightly over ~2yrs and it works well. My favorite finish nailer is the Freeman is the micro nailer 23 gauge though, great for virtually invisible finish nailing, comes in handy often.

I'm very interested in that husky framing nailer, but if anyone can help with a noob question, I was wondering why there are such dramatic price differences between this husky and say the porter cable, they look basically the same to me.

I have a specific question on the Husky 21° as I almost bought it last week. Going to be putting ~80 14-16" 2x10s to support the joists in my basement.

This would be adequate in your opinion? Also, size-wise, this shouldn't be an issue, correct?

TIA
