Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kristy Awesome product for the money
I have now painted 2 rooms with the paint. I had no problems with using it with a sponge brush, edger and roller. I am covering white painted walls in both rooms. The one room had a wall that was a new construction so it did suck up a little more paint. But I had no problems with the way it has covered.

This paint is made by Glidden so expectations were that it would be a good paint for the price. Consistency is like overcooked syrup, too gooey to properly load a brush, roller, sponge or paint pad (I tried them all) and it sits on the outside of the painting tool and then falls off in literal strands as you pull the tool from the paint. I had to barely coat the tool, and twist it around out of the paint to try to keep the globs from stringing. That means I had to continually re-load with paint. It took forever to finish a closet job. The stuff thickened even more as it was applied to the wall, and dried way too fast to feather out the sections. The already applied paint actually stuck to the brush and pulled back off the wall as I would try to blend the sections. Thinning it did not seem to help at all. If anything, there were just more strings of paint falling away from the roller. I do know what good paint feels like, and should have retreated this paint back to Home Depot instead of fighting a losing battle.

I live in an apartment, so I don't feel great about spending all kinds of money painting rooms that I don't own. This paint is inexpensive and is perfect for my purposes. I found it was really thick, but that didn't hurt anything. It was easy to apply to brushes and rollers and I found it dripped less because of the thickness. I have used much more expensive paint from other stores and had issues with it peeling right off the wall like rubber. This paint has never done that to me. I think it works great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ivan Worst paint have used
I wasn't expecting top of the line, just standard white trim paint. Well even with low expectations this fell way short of it. For starters it has horribly separated, had to take it back to get remixed in the store, I know all paint separates in storage but I am talking about all components were in individual pure layers. It looked like it was never mixed in the factory. I know about paints, I works for a coating manufacturer. Does not cover well and adhesion is horrible. It peels off easily.
The old American Standard home depot sold was decent for the price, this one is supposed to have replaced that one and it was for the worst. I hope the rest of HD paints aren't heading in the same direction.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LuisZ Paint is just average...
Painted my bathroom with this kind of paint. I went on a whim asked the store associate to give me mid-range paint. She gave me this paint. I then realized this is a lower grade Glidden product. I didnt have the problems the other 2 people had. However, the coverage and hide of this paint isnt that good. Took multiple coats to get the coverage and hide. Also the smell took days to go away. I used the Glidden Duo that paint i can recommend. The coverage and hide of that paint was decent and it didnt smell as much. Not worth the extra work to save $7 a gallon on the Americas Finest.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gabbo Do not buy
I figured some white paint was white paint. I did not need anything high dollar. Well, this went on gummy, did not cover at all. Even with two coats it was not even close. After doing some trim I realized I was just digging my self deeper in a hole I purchased some new paint. It cost was more but it was all I needed..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Natnjr2 TOO THICK
This paint is terrible to apply. Too thick and when thinned down won't cover. Awful! Should not have tried to save some money on plain white paint for the doors and baseboards - spending the savings in time and aggravation! Never again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pratmaster Best if you do not even buy this paint
This is the worst paint I have ever used, it works well as a primer, but just to cover flat white with semi-gloss white it takes at least 5 coats. I gave up and decided to just use the paint as a primer in other areas I was going to paint over or on new wood.
I can buy primer cheaper then this paint per gallon at Lowes, and Valspar brand to boot, so I would not even recomend this paint as a primer.
So just go ahead and buy a better paint, just pass this stuff right up....
