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 used this sprayer for the first time today and it couldn't have been any easier. My old sprayer that had a container for the paint just quit working. I had to clean everything each time that I had to add paint. Very time consuming.

Nice sprayer, light weight with ample length of hose. It is a bit awkward spraying inside tight places (cabinet) because the hose doesn't swivel. I checked Graco for swivel but haven't found one. There are plenty of steps in order to use and clean the sprayer and Graco has excellent online videos to help with this. I just used my smartphone to access the videos while setting up the sprayer. This is fine sprayer for the occasional project. After using/cleaning I put it right back in its box for storage. Graco also supplies Pump Armour.Still going to have to find a swivel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LDTaylor Did a great job first time out!
Spray pattern and coverage was excellant. I painted my garage in a couple of hours and sprayed 5 gallons. Set up instructions remain a bit cryptic, but once you get going, this unit is a delight.

Bought this a month ago as trying to paint a garden picket fence and pergola with lattice was too much hand work. Had a smaller sprayer from another manufacturer but it spat paint blobs. Grace x5 produced smooth paint surface and easy to use & clean up.

I've only used my sprayer once, but it was easy to use following the directions provided. This is the first sprayer I have ever owned and I am very happy with the X5 and its performance.
