Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Derek Excellent product
With concerns from others that have reviewed this product, I was cautious with my purchase and did a small test crack on my asphalt driveway. Like other positive reviews, the material comes out with a hint of brown color (you can see this color if you flip the tube upside down in the store). But as previously indicated, as it dries, it turns black. Drying time was as indicated, about 2 hours for the topical surface, and about 24 hours for it to dry completely.
In purchasing more, I had larger cracks (slightly pushing the half inch recommendation), and also deep (1 inch down). While this required lots of material, it worked well. Also, the larger cracks were met with rain shortly 3 hours after application. (I live in the mountains and the weather is RANDOM). Fortunately, the minimal drying time was enough to keep it from going bad. After a couple weeks, the cracks are perfectly sealed and look professional (for a crack that is).
I recommend a plastic flat tool to manipulate the obviously sticky material. This allowed me ensure it was packed down in the crack and tidy up the surface area for a flat finish. I did notice that upon drying it did retract a tiny bit, which I found beneficial since I have to snow blow and don't want to risk catching an edge and reopening the crack).
Also applied within the recommended temperature range, but at the bottom end (around 50 degrees).

Filled deep cracks with sand then applied patch
First time I used this type of patch and I like it.
We'll see how it holds up throughout the year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohninVA A very competent asphalt crack filler
This product filled cracks up to 1/2" in my asphalt driveway with no difficulty. At first I was concerned because it is a chocolate color when first applied, but turns black when dry. Of course, cracks are notoriously difficult to keep sealed, but this sealer seems to have the necessary elasticity when dry to keep them sealed for awhile.

I used a tube of this to seal the gap between my asphalt driveway and concrete garage floor. Over the years ants have been gradually digging out the sand between the two.
It's easy to apply and smooths nicely with a fingertip. I'm hoping this will stop the ants and keep water from getting underneath and freezing.

i found that this crack filler flows smoothly, and blends as best as expected. with winter approaching, i will monitor the sealed areas to insure it's cold weather elasticity. after two weeks, it still maintains it's adhesion/bond with the existing driveway( with overnight temps dropping to the low 30's)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobC Filled the small cracks nicely. We'll see how it holds up during the winter.
Used at about 60' F. Flowed nicely. Filled some narrow, but deep cracks between asphalt driveway and concrete walkway. Wanted to avoid water getting in during winter and free/thaw cracking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jane01 I would buy again!
I would buy this product again. It worked great. I used it two months ago and it still is working great. It comes out like caulk and I used a small putty knife to spread it. This way both sides of the crack are covered. I went back to buy some more but the store stopped selling it, so having to order it online.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John old stock?
I read the reviews and bought 2 tubes anyway. The contents of the first tube were so dry that it was almost impossible to push it out of the caulking gun, and I have a grip like a vise! The second tube was just impossible to get out. Really disappointed in Home Depot.
