I just fired up my new SWC 230 and this thing is amazing! The loudest part of it is the air flowing through the silencer! It has a fairly large footprint (11"x13") but for it's rating of 400 Gal (light), 300 (medium), 200 (heavy) it's still very compact. It has a very cool Askoll pump and for a bit of eye candy the body surrounding the pin wheel is clear so you can see it crushing those air bubbles. The build quality is excellent. I ordered it on Monday, and it arrived yesterday. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase thus far.
