Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barry Good roller cover
These roller covers are pretty nice especially for the price. Often roller covers are not worth washing and reusing so these are cheap enough to be disposable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Move14 Good for a small project
This is an average roller at a reasonable price. I needed a roller for a minor paint job in a bedroom closet. I did not want to have to wash the roller (I am against washing paint into the drain for eco reasons), so I didn't want to spend much money on a roller that I would only be using for 5 minutes. Overall I was satisfied with this roller for my closet painting project.
I had to remove a 96" wire shelf because I'd put too much weight on it and it was pulling the clips out from the wall. So, after patching the 20+ holes from the shelf's clips and brackets, I poured my paint into a tray and loaded up my roller. It took quite a lot of paint to load up the roller, more than I had anticipated. But once I had even coverage on the roller, I starting rolling my wall.
As with just about any roller I've ever used, there was a bit of "fluff" that came off the roller which is aggravating but hey, it's a closet that is going to get packed full and I'm not going to see it every day. In hindsight, next time I will use a lint roller on the paint roller before loading it up with paint. Maybe that will cut down on the fluff?
My paint spread evenly over the 1x8 ft area, and I did not have to go back to the paint tray since the roller held so much paint...I just kept rolling and blending the paint on the wall. I had a couple tiny spatters on my tile floor when done, but again, that always happens when I paint with a roller. Maybe I don't have the right technique, but I think it's just inevitable to a certain extent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie These Rollers Really Speed Up the Job
When it comes to paint rollers I've never really paid much attention to the brand or type that I've used. However, these roller covers were a huge improvement over any that I've used before. They really hold a lot of paint and the coverage is the best I've used. Each coat went on evenly and quickly and even after extensive use they weren't leaving behind any lint. These made a noticeable difference in how quickly we were able to get the job done and I'd highly recommend them!

Sprays tiny paint droplets everywhere, more so than any other roller cover I have ever used. Doesn't hold much paint. Gums up real bad on the ends. Throw these in the trash where they belong and go for the Purdy, Wooster, or anything else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NFCTinken Stick with Purdy Rollers
I am usually very fair when it comes to reviewing products, but I was very unhappy with the performance of these rollers. I thought I would try them since they were ~$3 cheaper than the Purdy 3/8" rollers, but that was my first mistake. These rollers often obsorbed more paint then they put on the walls. I also experienced a lot of the polyester in the paint as I looked at the tray. After using 2 of the rollers from the pack I threw the third one away, went back to Home Depot and got a 3 pack of the Purdy White Dove 3/8" rollers to finish my job.
Spend the couple extra bucks and get a product that won't frustrate you as you work with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Pretty Good
I got these to hopefully make painting my ceiling a bit quicker. The coverage was good, but not 100% as pictured, I still had some unevenness with the rolling action. Still it seems to have covered the areas way better then the other roller I was using. It splattered, but not bad, this could be from me loading the roller up too much maybe. I guess painting the ceiling is just a pain no matter what, but over all I'd say this is a good roller cover, more suited to walls. They do make a roller more for walls and ceilings, but this package didn't state that. It also seems that no matter what paint I use, it's gonna take 2 coats. Is paint being formulated differently now? It seemed so much easier to paint a room in one coat 10 or so years ago.

I purchased the 3 pack and have only used one. These are awful! I have been painting the same wall for about an hour because the roller cover will NOT stay on the roller!! I am constantly having to push it back on. It is irritating to the point that mid-painting I sat it down and came down stairs to write the company my complaint. I am not one to ever write a review, But I hope I can prevent the next person from making the same mistake as I have. as the last review said... they drink the paint and you are constantly going back to the tray only to paint a 2 foot line each time... I would have given a negative star if possible
