If the compressor puts out enough volume, you don't need a big tank.

If you have a little compressor, then a big tank or additional tank lets 
you do work in longer bursts, then the little compressor can fill it 
back up while you're doing other stuff.

110 vs 220 - if you want higher sustained flow than a 110 unit will 
provide, then go with 220.
