Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Raffie Burned out the original unit within hours of use.
Because I could not get any advice about the unit clogging on a Sunday, I burned out the first unit that I bought. Returned it to the store for exchange. Pushed thru with the second unit clogging as I went. Found out from Graco on Monday that the premium house paint that I used needed to be slightly thinned. Nothing about the problem in the instructions. Needed to thin the paint with 2 quarts of water per 5 Gallons of paint (10% thinner). Paint can be thinned by up to 17% without effecting the paint. Paint must be no thicker than .015. Instruction need to be much clearer about thickness of the paint and what to do about it. Basically the unit should not clog.

I bought this not too long ago to paint my home. I was surprised how it got the job done in so little time.

Light weight, ease of operation and it'll blow thick Latex right out of the can with no thinning. Cleaning is a snap with the water connection for Latex.

I bought this after spending 20 hours applying 2 primer coats to a rusted galvanized roof. It took 30 minutes for each coat with the Magnum X-5. This is my first attempt using a sprayer

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Stewart Not for the beginner
Admittedly I am not known as a handyman and maybe I picked the wrong project to start (a long row of outdoor steps). There seems to be a lot of wasted stain on start-up and finishing, plus there was approximately 2 inches at the bottom of the can that would not pump out. Additionally the sprayer kept clogging up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edwin Half time spent painting the other unclogging
I bought this to paint a recently constructed barn with heavy stucco, approx. 800 sqft, which could only be done with a sprayer. Did not want to spend a lot of money for something that I may not use again for a while if ever. I thinned out the latex paint with 10% water and still had to unclogged it almost every 60-90 seconds. Very frustrating and I would not recommend it if you plan to give it a fair amount of usage.
