Steve,
Did it have a brand on it? If so which one. Sometimes I struggle to keep up with all the branding so don't know what I am looking at. Are there any serial numbers, marks etc, which identify the compressor.

I had the AIR MAX compressor, it was the best one ive seen used. But be careful of an immitation on the market, its not the real thing,i was told this by a reputable shop. Looks exactly the same but internals are different.
I sold mine only because air locker was fitted and came with arb compressor mounted under drivers seat, but i wish i had kept the original air max now as its chalk and cheese between the too.
Just what ive been told ..correct me if im wrong

I just bought a Compressor from Supercheap, their advertised $79 jobby, stripped all the crap off it and mounted it under the bonnet, works very very well for $79! I have not timed it so far but seems very good.

The 12vDC Switch (I was using one in the dash) the plastic end housing that contained the switch, those metal frame thingos that were to clip your battery terminals too and the rubber feet. (I cut the feet, drilled through them and turned them into little rubber mounts that my bolts went through. Then I cut the small bit of hose that came out to the quick release end and extended it using high pressure fuel line and hose clamps to the front grill, drilled a small hole in the plastic in the grill and screwed it in there. That way I don't have to pop the bonnet to use it, my hose (that is kept under the passenger seat) complete with guage just clips in under the front grill and away you go. Of course it's all fused and sealed. Also sprayed fisholine around my new holes as to stop any nasty rust coming through.

If you want to test it properly . Put them on 2 identical tyres and take them a high pressure , and listen to both motors when it gets up high

Make your own mind up.

Look at the compressors made by Yuyao Jindun Instrument & Meter Co Ltd of China.

The specifications and picture of the Maxair look remarkably like the JD 101( copy and paste web URL below, - copy all of the long URLfor Yuyao's site)

Yuyao web page

Maxair web page
http://www.bushranger.com.au/maxair.html

And the Proair looks and specs are remarkably like the JD 95

Proair web page
http://www.bushranger.com.au/proair.html

Co-incidence maybe!!!!!!

The JD 101 sells for about $42 if you want to buy a container load ( min order), however three is an exclusive distributor for Australia ( go figure!)
