Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by webuycentex Works amazing at scraping Popcorn Ceilings!
Very simple to do, make sure you wet the ceiling well, cover things you don't want to get messy with rosin paper and/or plastic (also sold at Home Depot), and either get a broom handle/other long handle, or use a ladder. If your ceilings have been painted you may need to wet and scrape a couple times to get down to the clean sheet rock. Then let it dry and re-texture. Be careful not to press too hard or you can scratch your sheet rock.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by thuff not worth it
Bought this yesterday to do a small project and not worth it wound up using a regular 3in scraper because this one did a horrible job at actually scraping the ceiling if your ceiling isn't painted then this might work ok for you. Also bag attatchent doesn't catch enough for me to not want to go ahead and cover everything with plastic. Would return but not sure if I can since I attempted to use it

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fredo698 Works as advertised
Don't know what everyone is having problems with. This works great, just as advertised. Maybe if you read the directions you'd have more luck. Eliminates much of the cleanup, and the bags you use attach easily. I just used plastic bags from the grocery store. I'd recommend it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jb terrible...did lots of damage to dry wall
very hard to use without damage to dry wall. dig in because it's hard to keep blade proper angle. wish I could return and get my money back. just use a wide blade putty knife put plastic throw away drop cloth on floor to catch the popcorn and then just throw it out after ceiling is smooth. bag on this is a waste of time and effort.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bastogne This thing sucks
Bought 2 of them to strip my acoustic ceiling. This stupid thing didn't last 5 minutes. The metal is weak and bends at the handle while applying minimal force, and yes the ceiling was very damp. I am a general contractor and was able to strip the ceiling with ease using a 10" drywall mud knife.

The tool functions well at first - you have to empty the bag regularly, and you will still need to cover your floor, but if you wet the popcorn material as directed it is fairly easy to remove. However, after removing about 200 sq ft of material the handle angle had changed due to bending of the bracket and it no longer worked well; I switched to a wide putty knife and finished the job. A better quality steel in the bracket that maintains the handle to scraper angle would make this a good tool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rlc Worst purchase ever
This is the worst product that I have purchased in a long time. With a bag attached to catch the popcorn debris you could not see what you were doing and attach a long handle to the product even made it worst. If the product was not so dirty with popcorn debris I would have returned it and got my money back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Handymaam Adequate, at best
Great concept, but found it much faster to use a regular scraper.
1) As mentioned in several other posts, you can't see where you're working when the bag is attached.
2) I still lost a significant amount of ceiling material outside of the bag. So good prep is still required.
3) Once the ceiling material starts to accumulate in the bag, the bag swings back & forth with your scraping motion making it difficult to maneuver.
