What are compressors and what do they do? Are they worth the money, and can you guys name some good compressors?

Fro guitar, Keeley makes whats the best compressor I've probably ever heard, but they're expensive. It does sound amazingly smooth though, and is quiet. I use a DOD Milkbox. IT works well, but is noisy when on, and doesn't have worlds greatest bypass. It does work pretty well though, but almost needs a noise gate to go with it. Compressors in general though seem to be noisier effects when on, probably due to "squashing" your signal, thus making it more mid heavy.
