Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ This sprayer cut my project time in half, at least!
My big project this summer was painting the exterior of our house. I was very nervous to use a paint sprayer for fear of drips and uneven coloring, etc. This sprayer was excellent! It is very important that you follow the instructions step by step putting it together and getting it ready. There was one step I was missing and it kept spurting out globs of paint. Once I reread my steps and saw I forgot to turn a knob I had zero problems with it during my entire project. It took me about 5 minutes, at the most, to get the hang of the best way to hold and move the sprayer. We used very good quality paint and got excellent coverage with this sprayer. The cleaning of the sprayer does take some time if you do it right so it will not give you problems when you start it up next time. The good thing about that, though, is if you have to take a break of a day or two you can just cover things with plastic and do not have to clean the whole sprayer. I am so happy with the way the exterior of our house looks after painting! I will be using this sprayer for many projects in the future.

I bought this machine and painted our fence. It makes the work less painful and the paint goes on nice and smooth. Just finished priming a wall for a mural at a school too. Way faster than rollers. Love my Graco Paint sprayer and when I had questions about it, the customer service at Graco was top notch!!

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.

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.

Easy to use. The airless hose is very stiff. Good value. Sure beats a roller.

This airless sprayer worked as advertised. After reading the manual the setup was understandable and fairly simple. I had heard plenty of things about sprayers and this was the first one that I have ever purchased. I am very pleased with the product!

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.

We bought this to use on a deck remodel and son's upcoming house construction and we haven't been disappointed. It takes practice to use it well. Coverage is great
but it is easy to use a lot of paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SUPAG Basement Finishing Project
I purchased this sprayer online from Home Depot including the 30" extension wand. My project was spraying my open ceiling (50'x14')in the basement since we were not doing drywall or a drop ceiling. My goal was to spray everything black matte including floor joists, bottom on the subfloor, all PVC pipes, and all wiring. I have a friend that paints professionally and he came over to demonstrate the operation from priming to spraying to storage. After this I read the quick guide about 5 times to completely familiarize myself with the order of operations. It is very important to do things in the right sequence. I then spent time watching the video of how to spray with the gun, again very important. But before I started the ceiling, I had five pre-hung doors to paint white. I bought a five gallon bucket from Sherwin-Willian's and the instructions on the paint said to use a nozzle tip with a .017 hole. I went with the instructions but wished I had used a different nozzle with a much smaller hole. While the function of the sprayer was excellent, the .017 laid down a thicker coat than I would have preferred so now my five doors have a little texture. It looks OK but my doors upstarts are smooth. My space was confining and the 25' hose was a bit awkward dragging from door to door. These hoses ARE NOT like a garden hose and have a fair amount of rigidity to them. I purchased my basement ceiling paint also from Sherwin-Williams and used acrylic dryfall paint. Any misting that falls to the ground turns to dust so you do not have the issue of sliding on wet paint on the floor.....very nice. I primed the unit then attached the extension wand and I was off to the races. This machine was laying down a nice spray from the start. Working around the wires and pipes was fairly simple but I had to come at these spots from both sides since voids were created by the wire and pipes blocking the spray. The extension wand was invaluable in spraying around the larger HVAC ducts. I burned through the 5 gallons pretty quickly and had to purchase another bucket to finish the job. This was inconvenient as I had to shut down everything and clean the sprayer until I could finish the next day. Not the sprayers fault.......the wood just sucked up the paint like a sponge. Before I began the following day, I took time to hand brush all areas I knew would be a problem. It took a little time but it was worth it. Coming in with the sprayer was much simpler in getting a good coverage. Cleaning the unit was not difficult but does take time and patience. To make this efficient, you cannot learn while you go. Knowing the sprayer inside and out is by far the best way to avoid issues. Attaching to your water hose makes cleaning a breeze. I would suggest having a toothbrush on hand to thoroughly clean the nozzle and spray tip. Be sure to also clean the gun cartridge as instructed. Once everything looks good and all the paint has been cleaned out of the machine, then prime with the storage fluid (Graco Pump Armor) and you're set for the next time you need to use it. I was a bit intimidated at the thought of doing this myself. The dryfall paint and extension wand kept this from being a much messier job than I envisioned. This unit paid for itself in two days. Hiring it out to professionals would have set me back $500 - $700 in labor alone. Now I have a great sprayer that I can lend to my kids for when they become homeowners. Happy with my decision to DIY.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bogeymanmcs Not Ideal for Heavy Latex Paints
Purchased sprayer with the expectation of spraying an entire house with interior primer. Primer label indicated that a #15 tip would work for their product, so I purchased the X5 (it has a #15 tip and was about $120 less than the X7). Tried sprayer, but it clogged continually and spattered paint all over, just over all not the right tool for the job. I could have thinned the primer, but opted to return the X5 and purchase the X7, which has a #17 tip. The X7 worked flawlessly. BTW, Home Depot was absolutely perfect helping me on the return process.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buffaloglenn Very good product
I picked up a Graco magnum X5 and used it this past weekend to paint most of my home's exterior. It is easy to paint with and handled the exterior latex paint with no problem. It did a great job covering wide areas in a short time. You have to spend your time covering anything you don't want paint on, use a shield when you are close to trim areas, and clean the machine very well when done. It took me about 20 minutes to fully clean the sprayer, taking the gun apart and scrubbing off the gun.
Use a cheap facemask or you will breath in a lot of paint.

Needs a swivel end on the hose to keep from binding. Other than that, great product. Easy to clean (relatively) tips and parts are readily available (for the time being) at both lowes and Sherwin Williams stores, as we'll as Home Depot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frustratednewby Beware of clogs
I bought this paint sprayer because I was excited over the reviews. We have a rental and I wanted a fast and easy way to paint. My initial experience with this sprayer did not start out so good. The pump kept shutting off in the middle of my sprays and would take forever to start working again. I thought maybe it was overheating and needed to rest for a while, but later figured out that wasn't the problem. I was extremely frustrated because I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to get it to work. I was ready to take it back because I thought I bought a lemon. The troubleshooting section of the manual is not very helpful. Then I watched a trouble shooting video and found out that the gun has a filter itself. I remove the filter and cleaned it real good. the sprayer ran like a charm after that. I guess the type a paint was using was clogging up a filter fairly easily, but at least I know now what to do.
