Rated 4 out of 5Â by edwardskc Can paint large areas quickly and cleanly
Like anything new, it took me a few minutes to learn how to use it. Makes rolling large areas MUCH easier, and the trigger for applying paint works well and smoothly so you can always have the right amount of paint on your roller without drips, climbing up and down ladders, and constant trips back to the roller pan. The handle has a lot of adjustments so you can put the trigger in the position that is most comfortable for you. Only downsides -- it's a little heavy so my arm got tired faster than with a conventional roller, and it is a little awkward to switch sides and put the frame on the other side. Also, cleanup of the entire contraption takes longer than using a standard roller. Wonderful for any large job though, and cut the time for painting in half.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by johnpc Worked better than expected
I already had the Graco paint sprayer but did not want to mask off everything to spray paint some bedrooms so I picked up the pressure paint roller. I painted two rooms and it worked well. It was much faster. I was covering the floor but then stopped that to save time as and I did not need to cover the floor because it did not drip.
The clean up of the roller was as easy as a regular roller.
I wish they made a pad version of this system for doing the corners and near the ceiling. I called Graco and they said they did not make that system.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Diggerd Great add-on!
This product worked great for a few jobs now. With the sprayer I found myself taping off a lot for just one room. With the roller we could cut in the room and just roll without getting paint everywhere. Not a substitute for the sprayer but a great add on for the money.

No issues with dripping, much quicker and cleaner than roller and pan, much less prep than spraying. Short learning curve to get great results but get a hose swivel so you don't spend time fighting the hose. Somewhat expensive but the time it saves and the wear it saved me make it a worthwhile purchase.

Has worked well for me so far. Applied primer to two rooms and painted one up to this point. Have to apply EVEN pressure on the extension handle or you will get lines. This is much better then roller and tray. Have a project painter with a home made pickup hose for the 5 gallon bucket. Turn it on and roll $ go. Took longer to cut in the room then roll it using this. Have not tred the roller with the 40" extension yet (saving the ceiling for last).
Clean up is a little tricky at first but easy.
