Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rose Pleasantly Surprised
I am not a person who writes reviews but I had to say something after some of the negatives, I am using this to touch up walls for selling the house. We have an 11 year old modular home which had some kind of contractors glue on the wall when we moved in and we have tried to remove it with everything you could possibly think of over the years but nothing and I mean nothing can get this stuff off the wall. I bought the paint sample and the wonderful person at the paint dept. Barb is an artist with matching the color perfectly. I bought foam brushes and covered the marks with one coat dried fast and then a second coat and voila. Gone no more marks, you can't even tell the wall was painted because it dried and matched so perfectly. Also no paint fumes! I had no problems with this paint and I am an Ace girl so let me say I am pleasantly surprised with this paint. I will positively use this paint again and recommend this to everyone now! Try it out in the sample and see for yourself!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY03038 Excellent Exterior Paint
This paint and primer in one covers most surfaces in one coat and dries quickly. I applied this paint using a 3/4" thick nap paint roller after previously preparing surfaces to be painted by removing loose paint and or dirt. I have applied this paint onto old and new plywood siding, aluminum siding, and PVC trim. Only had to use a brush to paint inside the groove of plywood siding and other areas where it is not possible to get into with a paint roller. I used a custom color through a computer color match to match the existing light almond color of my home. I don't like to paint especially to have to paint a surface multiple times with a primer followed by one or more coats of paint.

Excellent coverage, only one coat needed! When I needed another gallon, it was matched perfectly by the paint staff at the store!

Family member recommended this paint to me, as they have used it before and it had high reviews in Consumer Reports. My deck was in really bad shape - you could see the wood as the old paint had been chipping off for quite a while. I did a light sanding and then applied this paint. I was so surprised - one coat was all that was needed for complete coverage! It has been on for a couple of months now and it is holding up very well. We get lots of birds in our yard and they can make a huge mess. All it takes to clean is a nice spray from the hose and the paint is good as new!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gigi too thin - dripped too muc
This paint was too thin which surprised me. The Home Depot interior with primer for my bedroom came beautifully.
I expected the same or better quality for the exterior.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WL Very pleased with this paint. CR got it right.
I went with this after seeing the Consumer Reports review. This is the 10th house I have painted. Used a Graco X9 sprayer and the paint, although wonderfully thick, worked perfectly in the sprayer. With a sprayer, I was able to put on a slightly thicker coat with no run. I was using a couple of SW colors and HD matched them perfectly. I used the Satin Exterior, and it has a richness to the finish and a very nice hand to the finish. When brushing trim, the paint covered very well. A second coat probably wasn't necessary for the brushing, but was done out of habit. I only sprayed one coat over a primed surface. Used the Kilz2 for the primer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anatolian horrible
I guess I should be blaming Consumer Reports since they are the ones who rated this as the primo defacto best of all!
Horrible coverage, streaks galore. Absolutely the most overpriced ($41+) paint I have ever used. Putting White Latex over White Latex and this stuff looks horrible! Changes brushes, reshook, repainted and still the horrors continued.
I would NEVER expect a $41 paint to streak like this, let alone one that supposedly has primer in it. Speaking of which, it reminds me of a semi gloss primer. I fully did not expect these results let alone the thought of having to use this to put two coats on to cover up the streaks it creates.
Skip Behr paints. Go with tried and true Glidden. Do not buy into the hype and DO NOT buy this overpriced primer.
This is going back to Home Depot.
