Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Smooth Even Coverage
I'm repainting a room that had extensive moisture damage, and required a lot of repairing and mudding. I needed a paint that would give me smooth even coverage, and be durable. I choose the satin finish and tinted it to a color called "Misty Summer Day". I was painting it over a coat of Zinzer that I probably should have tinted, because the first coat of the top color was streaky and looked very chartreuse. I was worried about the final look, but put on a second coat and it all evened out beautifully. I did need to touch up a few areas where the paint was too thin. This is probably more to do with my technique and the uneven walls than the paint. Over all I'm very happy with the results, and happy to have my bedroom looking better than before. One can gave me enough paint to apply 2 coats to an 8x10 room, with enough left over for touch ups.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Nice paint
Painted over 10 year old paint that was used on our new home when it was built. I didn't spot prime the spackled areas since I just wanted to finish due to a time constraint. Well I can't stop looking at it! It came out so nice and my wife Loves it... I painted professionally for years when I was younger and know what I'm doing so that may have helped my outcome. I will buy this again after I'm finished prep work on my living room dining room and kitchen! I am very pleased with the finish and coverage...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dunck If you like thin streaky paint ... this is for you!
This was a dark color and after 2 coats the walls looked very washed out and uneven ..it was clear that it would require at least 2 more coats and even then I did not trust that it would cover.... so i repainted with another brand ..the same color with no trouble. The paint was thin and streaky not was I am used to with Glidden

Waste of my time and money. This was the most frustrating painting job I have ever encountered. I think HD should paint my house on their time and their dime. Unbelievable!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by glasswench first time user, quite pleased
I've been a loyal user of HDs #1 brand for 20 years. the last 3 projects that i used #1 on, i was super disappointed, poor coverage. with this latest project I thought i would try a new brand. I didn't expect much, but am quite pleasantly surprised. Had a dark khaki wall that I covered with a single coat of kilz primer, two years ago. finally got around to putting Sea Glass Green on it. A couple other reviews remark on the thinness of the glidden paint, but I didn't find that to be true at all. perhaps it is a depth of pigment issue. My wall is medium textured, and i was able to get by with a single coat of the Glidden (with the other it would have taken 2 roller coats, with hand touch ups in areas), with hand touch ups in a couple areas that had deeper dimples, or a divot. virtually zero smell, which i didn't even realized until I painted another wall yesterday with year old #1 paint that had a very strong smell.
So. I am very happy with this brand and type, and will continue to use it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cmw47 Very poor coverage
Never again will I buy Glidden paint! Even after 3(!!!) coats there are still visible lines, & I am an experienced painter. Used the "duo coverage" because that's what the paint person at the store recommended. I have use dark colors many times over & never experienced this with other paints. I am very disappointed with this product. Would never recommend this paint. I have also used "cheaper" brands with wonderful results. Glidden needs to get their act together with this paint!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kennylogins69 Visible lines and horrible coverage
Only used this because of a gift card to a certain home store. Chose Glidden because I use their parent company (Akzo Nobel) at work with good results. Even with keeping a wet edge on my cut-ins it still leaves noticeable dark patches. Overall you get what you pay for, with this being cheap paint enough said. First and last time I will ever waste time applying this garbage to my walls.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GGMB Worst Glidden product ever
Just finished using this product My painter had to use 4 coats to cover one bedroom, He was disturbed with the constant streak and spray fro this thin based paint. Not worth the purchase and time wasted using this inferior product. Do not buy,
