Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by erica Gave me a professional result.
I've never used a texture gun before and got the hang of it in about a minute. Easy to use and have great results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Williethehippie Bathroom remodel
So I started on bathroom remodel and we wanted to door textured walls. I thought renting but u the of this sprayer with these high of reviews I thought why not? So this is my first time ever using one of these sprayers and I must say it is an excellent piece of equipment. It works very nicely, I am going to have to do a second coat since one of my batches was a little wet and just smeared when I knocked it down.
This tool is excellent for a first time user diy-er.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ttownguy Great little gun.
This gun worked great. I used it for the orange peel and the knock down looks. It worked well for both. I discovered the knock down requires a little more skill because of the need to trowel the mud. Still I am pleased with the result and the gun was great for not much more than the cost of a rental.

Sometimes you can't be sure about the reviews, but this one was a winner! First time spraying drywall and it came out great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DFWRon Works decently...with some personal adjustments
I purchased this tool because I am currently doing a remodel to the master bedroom walk-in closet. Everything worked fine with the tool. The gun portion of the tool works great. It's just a matter of playing around with it to get a feel for it as well as to determine what sort, how thick, how heavy, etc. of texture you want. I practiced on some old cardboard and made adjustments to the nozzle as I needed. My only concern is the hopper...or rather where the hopper attaches to the gun. There is an obvious "seam" on the plastic hopper at the opening....not sure if this was an intentional design aspect or this is just a seam from the manufacturing process. With that said....the seam breaks apart and does not give a proper seal around the gun. It is obvious that ALL THE TEXTURE would be running and slopping all over the place unless I did some personal adjustments. So....I hillbilly rigged it with some duct tape. THANK GOD FOR DUCT TAPE! Basically, 1st - I did a couple of wraps with duct tape on the gun opening, 2nd - I placed the hopper over the gun opening, 3rd - I wrapped more duct tape around the hopper and gun (making sure I pushed the duct tape into all the crevices), 4th - be generous with the duct tape, 5th - happy texturing!
I don't think this tool was designed to operate in this fashion. I'm sure there are "better", more "sophisticated", and more "professional" products out there....but....I also did not want to spend over a $100 on a tool that I would probably only use a couple of times a year....if that... Overall, I'm happy with the end results of the texturing ability. A little duct tape doesn't bother me too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjguitarslinger Inexpensive, easy to use, got the job done!
This was my first time texturing drywall - I was doing a ceiling that was 12 ft x 24 ft. I have a very small compressor (3 gallon tank), but that was enough and never seemed to be an issue. The instructions said to use 30-50 psi, mix the texture like pancake batter and use the medium tip for the finish I wanted. I used 50 psi and I think the higher pressure helped push the material up since I was doing a ceiling - for a wall less pressure would have worked well too.
The unit comes with an "optional" air control valve that lets you shut off the air to the unit. In my opinion, this is not really option - it is a "must have" since the air flows all the time. The trigger just controls the texture. I did about 10 minutes of texturing (about half the ceiling) and then went back and knocked-down the texture, then finished the other half and knocked that down when I was done. The overall result was very good.
The only trick was getting the texture pattern random enough - I started going back and forth, but then went to a more of an overlapping X pattern - that worked well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jstearns Splatters just like you want it to.
Better-made than I expected. It's certainly good enough for a do-it-yourselfer. Not sure whether it'd stand up to intensive use by a contractor, but it does seem to be the same quality as texture guns that I've rented in the past.
The hopper is thick polyethylene. It has a few nooks and crannies that thwart cleaning, but they're not a big deal.
The gun itself is solidly made. The important parts are machined, not cast. It's easy to disassemble and clean. It comes with three different nozzles, and it's adjustable for splatter size.
You'll need a fairly high-volume compressor to operate this thing. It throws out a lot of air, so a tiny compressor isn't going to be adequate.
Coverage is surprisingly good. I expected that it'd throw quite a bit of overspray onto the adjacent walls and ceiling, but it had very little overspray. I didn't even need to use a guard when spraying into corners.
