Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Raymond This product is not for outdoors, don't waste your time
I used this product last summer, scraped and prepared my house wooden window sills and frames. By this spring, all the paint had peeled off leaving a white powdery substance. At first I was not sure it was the primer or the Dap spackling. I prepped the windows again using this product on the cracks etc yesterday. On purpose I left some out to dry in order to test how it would take moisture as rain was forecast the next day. It went to mush just like drywall compound. DO NOT USE THIS OUTSIDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though the label states INTERIOR/EXTERIOR You will totally waste your time as it will need to be done again. It might work well inside, it is easy to sand, but that is it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WrigleyDave Very thin product, you will need multiple coats
The color change works like a charm, but as a spackle... it doesn't fill gaps, nail holes (even thumb tack size), screw holes of any kind--the product is extremely thin, like pink ketchup. Every single hole will dimple as it dries forcing multiple coats. Since it is only good for extremely fine cracks, I cannot recommend this product, use CrackSHOT instead.

We have used this product as a leveling agent prior to putting down vinyl, nail holes, it is the BEST spackle I have ever used!

This product is not for DIYers, very painful to apply. I thought I was using Playdoo.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Does not perform
This product "drys" to the consitency of dry toothpaste or cake icing - in no way does it harden up like dry wall mud. Can be easily indented, scraped, and peeled up with a fingernail without hardly trying after many hours of drying. The label mentions "for repairs deeper than 1/4" . . . . no way would I use this for deeper repairs other than a small hairline in an indoor paint finish that i'd be painting over in a non-traffic area. I purchased a couple 8 oz batches and tried to find a use for this after purchase and test it's performance on a home project, but was un-impressed and will stick with traditional drywall mud which drys hard - something I can have confidence in placing any paint over it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmill Yeah. ... this is some good stuff
I hade a few holes in my walls from doors that struck them when opening. Went on pink, and dried white just likeit says. Dries fast, and very easy to sand. Well worth the price and goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SilverLining Fantastic product
Drydex is terrific. Our daughter, a first-time DIYer, used this stuff in combination with mesh tape extensively in a room that frankly probably could have used a completely new drywall job. A contractor who had been doing another job for us in the same room looked around and asked, "Um..who's doing this for you?" When I told him our daughter, he replied, "She does a better job than we do." The wall after her repair with Drydex and subsequent painting looks like a brand-new drywall job. The color indicator is a great plus. Drydex takes sanding and paint beautifully. We LOVE this stuff.
