Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Builder Wondering who's idea it was to market this as "Professional"
I seldom bother to take the time to write reviews, but for this I'm making an exception. I have over 25 years experience in building and maintenance trades and have used a large variety of different paints from many different sources and at many different price points. This is one of the worst paints I have ever come across.
I decided to give it a shot because I received a coupon giving me one free gallon. This was one of the most expensive free things I've ever gotten. We sprayed and cut and rolled on this job over a variety of different wall surfaces. Most had been primed the day before. The bleed through was terrible, even on the primed walls and even on the wall that was nearly the identical color. Two to three coats were necessary. This was absolutely ridiculous given the prep work that was done. I had tried to buy the more expensive 220 but was told the color we needed couldn't be made up in that line. I shudder to think what the less expensive 770 line must be. Perhaps they are concerned about the painters health and are trying to make a product that can double as something drinkable for the workers. As a professional paint forget about it, there are plenty of better options available.
On the plus side it didn't stick to the tools or our hands any better than the wall so everything cleaned up perfectly.....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JL1229 Worst paint I've ever used!
Stay clear of this colored water at all costs! I've painted for 30 years and this is the absolutely worst paint I've ever used. Requires 5-6 coats rolled and 8 coats trimming with a brush to eliminate the bleeding and color inconsistencies. Very thin and watery and hard to avoid dripping and a tremendous about of spatter. And this was recommended to me by the HD 'paint pro' as one of the best.

Used this product and I needed to do some touch up after 3 years, had left over paint did the touch up in the kitchen could not tell . Too bad the Glidden paint stores are now PPG. Glad to see HD carries it in the store. It holds up well for the money spent .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AuntBea Very good coverage over paneling
I did a simple update to my 70's kitchen with chair rail paneling. First I primed the dark paneling to give a good base - but it was very streaky with the primer. The Glidden Ultra Coverage, in Sunbeam Yellow went over the primer perfectly. One coat and all looked smooth , covered and streak free! For the upper walls, I choose Glidden Buttercup in the regular interior eggshell finish. Everything looks great and my outdated dark paneled kitchen was transformed into a modern cottage kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kelfr25 Good price and gets the job done
I have painted several rooms using different brands of paint. Glidden has performed better than some of the more expensive brands sold at other stores. Glidden covered with fewer coats and did not leave bubbles in the paint like the other brand did. I will definitely use Glidden again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carolyn Product performance not as expected
Product was marked especially for contractors. I am not sure what that meant..if the paint was thinner , or what but it wasn't less expensive. Might have been the paint contractor we used but the new walls the paint was used on required three coats of paint. Color and shine was as expected.

I painted a small project with this paint (using a brush) and was disappointed in the coverage. I had to apply four coats before the brush strokes were no longer visible. Maybe using a roller would work better....but using a brush, it's bad news!
