Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caitlinny You'll need at least two coats
I like to consider myself a professional painter: I've painted every room in our house, furniture, and our kitchen cabinets, and I typically paint with either BM or Behr. The room I was painting with this stuff was a medium beige before and I needed a little umph. Went with the Classic Gold color. First coat had me really worried. You could see every brush/roller stroke and could clearly see the color underneath (as you can see from the picture). But the coverage on the second coat was great.
As for the Classic Gold color, I'm not sure how much I like it. In some lights it looks very mustardy and in other lights it looks very green. I was hoping to get more of a pure gold color. In daylight it looks nice, but I'm going to have to test out a few different types of light bulbs (soft white, daylight, etc) to make the room feel less mustardy or green and more gold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgurl Best paint EVER!
When we purchased our house, we chose Behr Premium Ultra paint for our walls, but they were all light colors. We knew well that the light colors worked exceptionally well, but, we didn't really have any knowledge of how well their darker colors worked. Until now!
I had been debating on a "accent wall in our living room. Because of our high ceilings, and larger rooms, the light colors on all of our walls made it seem a bit cavernous. That is when I went to Home Depot and picked out Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint colors. They come in beautiful EXTRA LARGE paint swatches, so you can REALLY get a feel of how the colors look over different light conditions. I hung up the swatches on the wall I intended to paint.
One of those colors was "Red Pepper" - a beautiful deep red with great undertones that had deep rich hues that really went with my current home colors.
The paint went on in an even beautifully smooth first coat. Because we were covering up a light colored wall my first thought was that it would take more than two coats - it did not!!!
In three hours, I was putting away all of my supplies and looking at my finished work! Because it was raining an humid out, I chose to wait for an hour between coats. I then chose to wait overnight to hang my curtains and fixtures back up. By the next morning, all I could see was a wonderful new accent wall in my home! This paint is simply the best paint that I have ever used! No primer needed, no extra coats needed, so in the end, the few extra dollars that you MIGHT spend on this paint is WORTH
EVERY BIT!!! When I know that paint is needed, it is the FIRST paint choice that I go to, and will ALWAYS be the first choice!!! No regrets, no wasted money on extra un-needed supplies! Trust me on this one, Behr Premium Plus Ultra, is a home choice that you can be happy and safe with!

I chose to use Behr's White Metal color and it came out great. My painters have been able to achieve great coverage in one coat over an olive green. The color is true to the sample and paint chip. So far, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by swtjen01 Excellent paint! Buy floetrol to add to your paint.
This is excellent paint. I painted my daughters room and it looks great. My strong suggestion is that you buy Floetrol to add to the paint. It eliminates brush and/or roller marks and to me it seems to even out the paint application. It will also help with some of the issues I read where people complained that the paint "lifted" back onto the roller or had roller marks. The actual issue is painting technique and/or cheap roller covers. Don't cheap out on the rollers and make sure you load enough paint..
REASONS WHY PAINT "LIFTS" WHEN ROLLING OR SHOWS ROLLER MARKS
(1) Rolling back over the freshly applied paint after it has had enough time to start to "set up". If you're going to roll over a freshly applied film, do so while the paint is still wet - not after it's had a few (or several) minutes to dry.
(2) If you can see the product "lifting" from the surface as you roll over it (and not because of what's described in #1), that is a tell-tale sign of a cheap roller cover.
If you buy floetrol and a good roller cover you will be pleased with the outcome. The paint results will look solid and uniform. I can speak from experience because initially every time I tried to paint it always looked awful and I had all but given up on ever painting again; then I received some advice from a friend who paints professionally. I hope this will help someone else out too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeliriousD Great paint for the price.
Regardless of the color you choose (because if it's too dark or too light, that's really your own fault) - the color I bought with this paint was very accurate and it went on the wall smoothly. I did need two coats, but barely. Very happy with this paint and will buy again. Note: In addition to this paint, buying good painting brushes also helps. You get what you pay for. I purchased really good brushes so I'm sure that helped as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shimmy Terrible color coverage
Used this paint to cover a previously painted wall and the color coverage was horrible. The original color was a lighter green and the top cover was a cream white. After one coat the green was easily showing through the top coat and the room needed a second coat.
I could see if there was a dramatic change in color like a deep red to white, but the original color was a soft color and this wouldn't cover in one coat. This was the worst coverage of any paint I've used in the past 30 years.
When I went back to the store, they said this paint doesn't claim to cover in one coat; it says "hides in fewer coats'
Won't be using Behr paints again.

The color is amazingly white white! However, it would still require to paint two coats to entirely cover up the old paint marks. Overall, it is a great product.
