Review after a few uses: perfect for what it is. On the scale of "Work mule named Daisy" to "my lazy kid that never clean up anything" I would give this a very heartfelt "Daisy".
The most important thing to know as a buyer is that this Turboflator is a re-branded Kwik Tek Airhead 12v pump. So if you are shopping, check those, too. Difference is this one does not come with the 1.5 psi limiter, but the hole is there. If you want more pressure than 1.5 psi, put your finger over the hole. I got dangerously close to 3 psi (ratting on my boat) before I chickened out.
My take on some issues listed about both the Kwik Tek version and this one:
Hose - mine was fine, take care of it, store pump hose in a solid container and it won't get squished. Mine was black, more vinyl-ish, not like the one pictured, and maybe it was improved from earlier reported issues.
Fittings - didn't have the one for my raft, but could get by by linking this hose to the old raft- pump hose,so no issues (plus longer hose!) Don't buy a pumps for fittings, buy pumps for pumping. You capiche?
Noise: oh please. Pumps are LOUD, spend time ear a vacuum cleaner lately? Or an AC unit? Pumps are loud, there are no quiet air pumps. Stop being an idiot.
Seals - tight enough for this walrus.
Overheating and filling time - Mine didn't get troublesomely hot. I used it for less than the 15 minutes-at-a-time, as recommended in the instructions. This pump filled my 14ft raft so quickly I can't imagine needing it for 15 minutes straight. In addition, I generally stopped a minute between raft sections, so maybe that helped with the cooling? I can't imagine what kind of inflatable for which you would use a portable 12 volt pump which needed more air than this unit can blow in 15 minutes. This is a travelling kind of thing, what do you travel with that could be needing more air than a raft or boat tow-able? Wait, you're not from that reality TV family from Nevada with the kid in the backyard balloon, are you? If you are, buy a 120v regular electric air pump and an extension cord, that will get the kids airborne so much faster, and won't overheat. You don't want overheated pumps fouling up an otherwise great day child aeronautics.

All-in-all a good pump for what it is intended.

This one looks well made. Actually is high pressure 2psi and made out large tube very tight quickly. Our tube is too large to inflate at the dock. It takes up too much room on the boat. So we want to inflate it while on the water. This pump works. It's noisy, but only for a few minutes. Appears to be well made.

I first used this pump a week after the return window closed and it got very hot within 5 minutes. We turned it off but apparently too late, it smoked and we smelled burning plastic. We were inflating an inflatable kayak so this was under light to moderate use.

I'm very disappointed and I'd recommend choosing a different pump.

I have tried many pumps i stopped being cheap and got this one is just so convenient well worth the price. the power cord is perfect length it inflates super fast I dont even have to repump with my foot pump it blows my 5 person water rocket in minutes and it stays solid best purchase ever.

Works great. We are now able to inflate our tube for the boat when someone want to go for a ride and deflate it when not in use.

I have a classic accessories pontoon boat. This pump has both pontoons inflated in less than 3 minutes!

Previous blower lasted years. This unit purchased 3/20 and died 12/20.

Lots of power - fill my 2 person Big Mable up fast. Now just hope it keeps running for a long time.
