Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 Great stuff for small patches
My dog would lay against the wall and make dirty spots and scratch the drywall with his nails leaving a bare spot.
I washed the wall and let it dry. Then I applied the wall knockdown per instructions. Unlike drywall patch, it puts little blotches on the wall. I let it almost dry, per instructions, and knocked it down with a trowel. Now you'd never know that anything happened to the wall because the texture is there.
The nozzle is adjustable so that it could make the popcorn look that is not knocked down.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KCWoods It's OK but just watch it.
I have used this product several times. I am a professional and do drywall texture patches and repairs all the time. I use this product only when I have a small patch job to do. It's sometimes allot easier than getting out the compressor, mixing the mud for the hopper, cleaning up etc. for a small patch. Since it is the knockdown, it is the most difficult to apply of all the aerosol texture style products offered. I don't care what the directions say, if you wait the 1 to 2 minutes to knock it down, you will have a mess on your hands. It takes WAY longer than that to be ready. Then you need to use a VERY light knockdown to test the hardness of the texture and increase pressure as needed to get the desired result. Several times I have just scraped it off and started over because it was way too thin to knock down. All in all though it is a handy product. Just expect some time to get used to it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kath Good. Worked fine.
Works fine for smallish areas -- you wouldn't want to use it to texture a whole room. It would take three or four cans to do one wall even for a light coat of texture. It seems to run out of propellant while there is still product in the can. But it is easy to use and very easy to duplicate and blend the texture into existing wall texture. So it works fine for repairs, even large repairs.

Fast and easy texturing repair.
It's got adjustable settings for amount of texture and spray width. And water cleanup.
It;s outstanding for fast quick refinishing of wall surface after a repair to be able to match the existing wall finish.
Be sure to get the Knock down tool for the best finish of your hard work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Darr Hard to use. Very disappointed.
I followed the directions to the letter. When knocking it down, it tended to smear rather than flatten. They recommend covering the wall about 70-80% but when I encountered this problem I tried using several difference coverage amounts between about 25% and 90% and I could not get it to look decent. They say to not let it sit for longer than 1-2 minutes before knocking it down. It is so thin within that time window that it just smears. I spoke to a contractor who did some texturing at my house and he thought it should sit for much longer than what they recommend.
So, I used it once and then put it away for several months, reapplying the red clip and clearing it (spraying upside down) just as instructed. I had a couple more spots to spray just now and the thing was completely clogged. I spent 20 minutes trying to get it unclogged so I could use it. Finally, I got it unclogged but when I went to spray it, the nozzle stuck in the on position and continued to spray. Fortunately, I was holding a heavy piece of paper as a guard and I let it spray onto that while I made my way to the garbage in the garage to dispose of it (still spraying). So, I paid about $25 for the can and the knockdown tool and I was able to use just about 5% of the can. And the 5% that I used ended up looking bad. Thanks a lot, Homax.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Worked well
I tried product despite poor feedback by others. At first it didn't spray evenly until I figured out how to adjust both tip settings. About half way through can, it started building up on spray tip then down my hands.
I sat down and decided to read instructions more carefully.
My home is about 72 degrees and decided to take the manufacture's advice in warming can. Filled sink with warm water and let it soak for about 20 minutes. Shook can many times before and during warming until I could hear ball inside can banging around. It worked great and did exactly what I wanted. If you let can sit for more than 30 minutes, I would warm it up again.
Have purchased 3 more cans.
If you are using this product on new dry wall or plaster, I recommend you use primer before application. Without primer, wall will absorb texture causing you to apply more. If I feel more texture is needed, I would still use primer between coats and touch ups. I believe this is also recommended by manufacturer.
Will use again although it's pretty pricey.
