I had a Siro Press for 2 years and liked it. It was super simple, quick to set up and easy to clean. I got sidetracked when Leader came out with the 7½" Clear Plate press. The plate press is more work, but being able to see what's going on inside is worth it to me. It came with a Wilton diaphragm pump...a step up from the Oberdorfer... other than the racket from the compressor running.
