This is absolute junk. I've painted a lot of things (drywall, wood, metal, etc.) with oil and latex. This time I painted a bookcase. Prior to painting with this product, I heavily cleaned the bookcase with TSP and allowed it to dry. I confirmed with Home Depot I didn't need to sand with this product prior to application.
I started carefully removing the tape. Basically, it looked absolutely horrible, not a single clean line anywhere. I am taking this back today and demanding my money back...never again Behr. I am so mad I'm just going to hire somebody.

This paint was applied 1 day after purchased. I used proper rollers. It was watery & dripping. After the paint was applied the original flat aqua color bled through. I also painted a second coat the following day and it still bled through. See the attached pictures

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SanAri Sooo Disappointed
I have used Behr paints for many years in over 10 different apartments that I have rented.
I wanted to paint over a medium purple in a small dining room. This project took me 1/2 a day ton two other occasions and it has never taken more than one gallon pain let alone almost two days. The dining area is small and has only one full wall the other walls have a single door, a double window pane and the entryy wall has two narrow columns.
I showed the rep the photo of the current color and he recommended I do the the primer and paint in one.
It took me the labor day weekend, a second trip for another gallon of paint because I had to go over it a third time, and still the trims and some areas show a grey like look to them because this paint refused to cover, took forever to dry and was way stronger odor then I am accustomed to.
Had I just primed and then painted I would have been done in half the time nevermind the re$ources.
Not at all what I thought it would be and I do not feel home depot delivers on its promise with this product.
The tinting seem to be ok but instead of what I thought would be a deep coral, its more red :(

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 091198 Worst paint change
We painted a red on the walls & 6 months later, I have to repair spots. We used a Berh primer before using this paint & the paint has come off the wall like it never stuck to the wall. I have used the original formula for years with no problems, but now that they have changed the paint to primer & paint in one, I can't get the same quality. I hate the new primer/paint combo. After 6 months of drying time, we taped a small area of the red & when we removed the tape, the paint came along with it. I am looking for a better paint because this primer/paint combo is nothing like the original formula & does not wear well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DB Not very good
I have been using real paint, Sherwin Williams and Ben Moore, but found myself needing to quickly paint a bathroom and thought I could save time by picking this product up while I was at Home Depot for other items. Compared to the above mentioned brands, this paint is messy to work with (much thinner, drippier, prone to splatter) and covers very poorly. I have just applied the paint, so I don't know yet how well it will hold up. I doubt it will be any better than Williams or Moore (I've been pleased with those) and my disappointment with the application of the Behr is enough to never buy it again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awake31 Never seen paint peel like this before
We have been repainting our entire house, ceiling and walls. We picked our colors and after we had done all of our celiings we started with our new beautiful wall colors. Every room, every color ripped off the paint with the tape like it was plastic. We have spent 3 times the amount of time just trying to fix the mess than painting it. We had prepped clean walls, we waited less time and more time to pull the tape off and no change. The paint is thicker than I would have expected it to be very jelly like all cans. We purchased 15 gallons total to do entire house and we had a couple of gallons that were for accent walls or the bathroom. This was the most disappointing purchase we have ever made from Home Depot. We are renovating the entire house so we are in the store what seems like daily but this has been the most frustrating part of the remodel. SO DISSAPOINTED in this product. Has wasted a ton of time and still trying to get it to look right

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Behr Never will I buy Behr Paints
I primed and prepped doors in a bedroom and used this Satin finish in Ultra Pure White. The coverage is horrible. I had to use 3-4 coats just to even out the colors. I used a high end brush with a tapered end and took my time. No matter what I did, this paint cured horribly and was basically transparent in patches. After the third coat, it started to look somewhat acceptable. I will switch to Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams. The low price of Behr caught my eye but after wasting an entire afternoon triple painting a door, it was a very expensive mistake.
