1 gal. DryDex Spackling Paste is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.

It will not dry and will not allow you to paint. May have been bad batch and with so many bad reviews, why risk doing you job twice! I'm going to repair again with regular dry wall mud. Wanted to get my repairs painted as soon as possible. Not only did I NOT get my project painted today, I'm going to have to repair again and wait and now I'm at risk of missing my deadline. Waste of time and effort due to a faulty product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the indicator. If you've never spackled before, and are using this on a vertical surface this might be worthwhile. However on a horizontal surface such as a ceiling, this is darn near impossible to use. I probably got a third or so of what I tried to use on the floor, as it will fall off the putty knife very easily. Very difficult to control and not as easily spreadable as it should be for something so running. Disappointing for a premium price product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product It does not dry out in the sealed container. We had a small one that lasted 2 years after opening. Goes on pink, then dries to white so you know when it's ready to sand. Very simple to use.
