I have the MV50 and it is quite a step up from the KMART toy compressors. It has done fine for me, and at $40 (when COSTCO had 'em) it was a bargain. I wish I'd bought two. You are right, you get what you pay for in quality and my next compressor will most likely be a Viair, but for the moment, my MV50 does the work.
