I have fallen victim in the past buying cheap imports thinking I had found a bargain but in fact it was just the opposite, those imports did not even finish the first project I was working on at the time of purchase.
Finish nailers - These products are also called brad and/or pin tools. They are meant for, as the name suggests, finishing work and hence the nails tend to be much smaller and smoother. They are usually stick-type nailers and are used fit on finishing touches like trimmings. They are generally much smaller and lighter than framer nailers and are meant for lighter, smaller materials. The nails on these equipment are often rounded and specialized so that they can be hidden with putty.
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.
Framing nail guns - These carry large box-type nails that are about 1"-4" in size. These tools are mainly meant for driving nails in thicker, denser materials. They tend to be stick type and also quite big and heavy.
The finish nailer is among the most useful tools for those who are doing woodworking. They help nail moldings as well as other small trim boards easily. You can drive thin finish nails through boards of hardwoods and softwoods, as well as manufactured products like MDF, while leaving behind a really small nail hole which you can fill easily with a wood filler. Another benefit of having to use a thin nail is that, you're less likely to split delicate trim boards compared to using larger types of nails or even wood screws.
