Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ronaldhughes sorry primer in paint!
This paint doesn't cover at all. I'm being told that this primer doesn't work. I've used 15 gallons and it wont cover. I'm told I need a pva primer too. But my paint is top quality with primer. I paid extra. My advice don't buy this paint. The store was no help. My company won't ever use this product again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Villain Disappointing Paint
Basically this stuff won't dry, it even left marks on a painted wall when leaned against it and on the varnished floor. It looked pretty good after two coats without priming, but it's been two weeks and it is still tacky and still comes off on other surfaces. Now I have to start over on this loft bed. The composite panels using a different color and proper prep are also tacky, but the paint doesn't seem to be rubbing off. Terrible product, I will never use it again.

I bought enough paint to apply 2 coats to my wassl changing from light tan to yellow and this paint/primer in one is still see thru, took pictures and contacted Behr and NEVER received a reply. Wal-Mart paint would be better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by maryk very disappointed
Actually there is no rating for this paint. This paint is terrible. My son painted my walls and I was very upset. I kept thinking he didn't know how to paint. So after criticizing him because the walls looked so terrible. I decided to paint my own walls.
They looked horrible too. They look like I was missing spots on the wall or didn't even out the paint. And I know I did. I spent $152.00 on a 5 gallon bucket for this mess. I really want my money back. Now I have to purchase new paint. My walls are white and all I was doing was repainting them white. I will not use Behr paint again. That's for sure. I have painted plenty walls even using cheaper paint and they turned out Better than this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgurl Excellent trim paint!
We had a LOT of painting to do. This paint (and it's sister paints), got stellar reviews on Consumer Reports, so we decided to try it. With 20 foot ceilings, we had to make sure that we got great coverage, that would also wear well. This paint fits that bill. But, the BILL was also pretty high. Compared to specialty paint store costs, this paint was pretty expensive for Home Depot.
But that said, we have had it up in our home now for 9 months, and even in the areas with the brightest sunshine coming in, don't look like they will be fading any time soon. That is a really good thing, because I cannot imagine my husband getting back up there anytime soon to re-paint!
If you're willing to spend the extra money for the best paint, yes, I highly suggest this paint,,,,if you don't want to spend this much,,,I'd rethink your project, and see if you are wanting to repaint with the lesser paints, because in the end, you will end up spending just as much on paint,,,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jabpainter Never again
Very expensive paint for the quality you receive. I'm currently painting over a baby blue bathroom. Paint and primer in one? I hardly think so. Two coats later and I still have bleed thru, which should not be a problem over a baby blue wall. Third time on cut in, and the same problem. I bought two gallons for two bathrooms. I'm wrapping up, packing the remainder up and will attempt to return it to the store to exchange for paint that will actually cover. Had I been smart enough to read the posted reviews prior to buying this, I would not have spent the last two days on a ladder.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Redcat Not impressed
We had some new drywall installed and of course it was unprimed, this is why we bought this product, that plus a rebate. It went on and covered pretty well. It worked until a contrasting color was being applied. We had used the painters tape on the paint and when we removed the tape, the paint came off with it. We got ahold of customer service and they were helpful, we did get a complete refund. This could have been a "bad batch", they would have to determine that from the can labels we sent to them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maxx Probably the standard now "Premiun Plus Ultra" for quality and price
Great paint in all finishes and colors, Big quality difference between 'premium plus' and premium plus ultra'. Spend the extra money for ultra.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rhythmcatcher horrible experience...
I spent $166 each on three 5 gallon buckets of this paint to paint my new home. After having a professional painter (20 years experience) come in and paint the house and seeing his frustration as the paint continually ran and bubbled, or as he called it "fish eyed" I was angry! Especially after we finally got a wall covered and without runs, we'd walk in to that room 1/2 hour later when the paint should have bonded and it was running all over again. I want my money back!

Best indoor paint I have ever used.
You definitely save money by buying the higher priced but better quality paint.
It only took one coat to do the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Might as well have purchased a gal of milk...
Purchased a gal. of this in white to paint over a previous painted (white) shelf... When I did the first coat I thought I might not have mixed it well or something because it seemed more clear than white and I could still see some paint chips / marks that I was trying to cover up (the reason I bought this paint in the first place!). Mixed the paint and did a second coat and got same result. It comes out like paint but when applied it like watery milk. Will be returning it to the store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by whatman not what it used to be
do not use this paint over walls that were recently plastered or drywalled. i replastered one bedroom a year ago that i painted with behr paint+primer. the paint in that room can still be scraped off to bare plaster with a fingernail. i recently replastered the master bedroom, and painted with pro plaster from sherman williams. after 2 minutes of drying you would need a screwdriver to get any paint off the wall. the difference in adhesion to plastered walls is amazing.

I bought a white paint plus primer semi gloss to go over a white paint, this paint was the worst performing paint I have ever used, it did not cover, three coats to make it look decent. I am going back to my B Moore, which performed exceptionally.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Janessa Disappointed
I've come to expect more from Behr... I bought this to paint my daughter's dresser and bed (some hand me downs from my sister in law) to match her room. I spicificly got this because it's a paint and primer thinking that it would save me time and since what I was repainting was just an off white that it would be a quick job. Boy was I wrong. It took 4 or more coats! And it says to wait 2 hours between coats. It was streaky with seriously poor coverage. I tried brishes, rollers, and sponges.... a one day project ended up taking 3 days! I will not be buying this ever again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ajkgtowntx Paint and Primer in one
I really wish they would stop making paint and primer in one. Primer is meant to go on UNDER your topcoat, not with it. Plus, it's more expensive than just buying a regular bucket of paint. I understand paint companies are trying to make it easier for DIY'ers, however, if you can use a roller, you can paint. Therefore, just use primer separate. That's how it was intended to be used. I use KILZ primer, then a good quality paint. Never have any issues.

Covers well over new doors and trim. Needed a different primer before painting previously stained and sanded trim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redwillow05 LOVE THIS PAINT!!
I live in a home which i have painted often over the years. Had my gallon tinted to Cathedral gray for my bedroom.....it feels like a warm hug. Once on it was a little darker than I thought it would be but love it now. The perfect color to go with purple and black accents. No drips, used 1/3 of the gallon for my small room covered beautifully. I had coupons for other paint but I always go to the best out there....GREAT PAINT!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JSK56 OK but not worth the extra price
I bought several gallons of this paint in both matte and egg shell to repaint rooms in our house. I have tried several other brands including Valspar and Clark and Kensington and found the Behr to not cover in one coat as well as the others. It was also the most expensive. I found it still best to use a primer such as KILZ if painting over walls with repairs and/or a dark color and then use a regular paint. Two coats of the Behr Ultra cost more in the long run.

I brought product when on sale. My house will be painted in September. However, Behr was used when my house was pointed in 2000. Based on that, I opted to use Behr again. Plus, the sale helped me make the decision

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Contractor33 Why paint and primer
I was in a bind and needed some paint Home Depot was the closest store that was open. Havent bought Behr in a while because of past experiences. So decided to get the so called better paint. We normaly buy an average of 10 gallons of paint a week on average for jobs. The paint didn't cover very well. The specs say coverage up to 400 sq. ft.. What planet are they on didn't even cover 200 and needed more. Read the fine print it recommends primer. My question is why pay $30 for primer when you can get good primer for about $12 at home depot and have it tinted for one coat of paint. Been painting for 40 years and believe in less material the better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sharonp Worst Paint ever used
This paint doesn't adhere to the surface. We used this on new sheetrock and when we put tape (either blue tape or frog tape) on the wall to caulk around tile and vanity top, upon immediately taking the tape off, the paint peeled like a bad sunburn. It wasn't like the paint was just applied either. The paint had over a week to set and it just caused too many issues.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by johnd Problems with additional paint to finish job-color/number given to another paint color
I went to store to purchase additional 5 gallons of paint. The customer service could not read the labelf rom the old (3months ago) paint 5 gal bucket. They could not find the number in the system and the name had a different color than my original. . We picked out what I though was a similar color based on their recommendation. My original paint was a very light gray. The new paint looked that color, however it was a very very light blue once it was on the walls. I had used the gray on all the walls and ceilings of a 1700 sq ft apartment. I was short the paint for the master bath so used the "BLUE" tone on that one room. Now the balance cannot be used to make repairs and I don't know what color I should have because they messed up the label. I still need the original however the whole wall of paint colors has been deleted in the store and two customer service people could not help me. So I am not happy with the inability to have repair paint for that apartment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ExperiencedDIYer Extremely difficult to apply. Terrible looking results.
This paint was extremely difficult to apply. The roller (Home Depot's "best") pulled the paint off the wall as soon as it was applied leaving the undercoat showing through everywhere. Using more paint to try to avoid this left drips / sags everywhere. Re-rolling just a few minutes later to try to fix the drips and sags left a drastically different texture that stood out.
For what it's worth, I am an experienced painter that has painted many rooms many times in the 20 years we've owned this house and never had this much difficulty with a paint.
