I used Dap, HDX and 3M for repairing my ceiling tape. Dap was the worst in achieving one pass smoothness as it shrinks. The HDX overall was complete garbage in that it did not stick at all to the underlying tape. Further when you make a second pass to remove excess spackle peels off in spots and for whatever reason cakes so that the surface is in no way smooth. Thus not only do u have to spackle again but u must sand too. The 3M product adheres pefectly, and in one pass is virtually smooth and if not you can do multiple passes unlike HDX. I kick myself for not finishing using the 3M which i ran out of and now stuck with HDX as HD doesnt sell 3M. Why if its clearly better......will never buy HDX again period.

Applies well easy to smooth, sands easily, i am not sure i believe that you don't need to prime to prevent flashing, but i am going to prime anyways, because i have stains i need to cover
