When you're buying finish nailers for the first time, the question you need to decide between a pneumatic or cordless type. The pneumatic type of nailer uses an air compressor to power it and conversely, the cordless nailer uses a combination of the compressed air canister air and a rechargeable battery in driving the nail through stock. Obviously, an advantage with a cordless unit is not having a cord attached to it but it may be a bit heavier because of the battery.
When working in constricted areas like in between wall studs or ceiling joists, one needs a smaller air nailer. The Palm air nailers come pretty handy in such situations as they are small enough to fit easily within the palm of your hand.
When you work on a finish nailer, you need the head to be just below the board's surface so it can be filled easily with the nail filler. If your nails haven't been sunk completely, you can use a hammer and a nail set to drive them in completely (although, this is extra work which you shouldn't have to do if you do things right). The problem which you usually get is caused by either an insufficient amount of pressure from the compressor, or the depth on the adjustment dial which wasn't set correctly. If you're not sure with the settings you need to use, consult your operating manual and follow the instructions on how to correctly modify the depth adjustment.
