Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VIC Very good quality sealer.
Spent weeks prepping my driveway. Filling in cracks with liquid type crack filler then letting it soak in deep then finishing it off with some patch filler. It came out nice. If you are going to do it, do it right the first time. I used a flat head screw driver and a air compressor to remove debris from the crack and filled them up. Waited a week or two for the perfect weather.
Blew off the large dirt and debris with a leaf blower and pressure washed afterwards. They say to apply it in the early morning while the sun isn't that hot for your sake and the driveways sake. I did the opposite due to work schedule. I ended up sealing it the next afternoon-evening. Did the edges with a brush. Only applied one medium coat for the entire driveway.The objective is to cover the previous asphalt and make sure the sealer soaks in. Ended up using 8 buckets for about a 1500 sqft. Save yourself some money and do it yourself. Really isn't that hard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Griz The other reviews were correct.
I followed the other reviewers' suggestions, and my driveway turned out beautiful. I swept my driveway first, then pressure washed using a concrete/asphalt cleaner that I added to the dispenser on my pressure washer and rinsed it twice. I then used trowel patch on the ruts and cracks. The next day I applied the coating using a squegee. I was fortunate to have a day that was cool, which made the product easy to apply and also I didn't have to rush the job. Couldn't be happier. I bought five buckets of the product and used only three, so next spring I plan to recoat using the other two since our driveway had never been coated before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC2295 Best stuff I've ever used / Great Price!
I've been seal-coating my parents old drive and now my driveway for about 15 years now. I've used some terrible products in the past where the bottom of the pail was a thick sludge - not this stuff though!
This is the only product I use on my driveway today. I didn't even need to stir the media but still did out of habit. It spreads like butter and my driveway looks just as good as an expensive professional job. Even better, neither of my neighbors seal their driveways so now mine really stands out.
I highly recommend using this product along with the rubber-blade spreading tool. That combination made this a fun job and I was done in no time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Ok for the money
It's OK for what you pay, won't last but a couple of winters but I didn't pay $40 a can for it either which won't last much longer. When you driveway gets old and starts to break down your best to spend your money on resurfacing it with new blacktop.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CSC Applied second coat, much better coverage
The 1st coat on my 2500 sq ft new driveway took 14.5 buckets and averaged about 175 sq ft/bucket. If you have a new driveway, buy twice what you think you need for the first coat. The finished job looked great and it only took about 5 hrs to do the very porous new pavement.
After waiting 48 hours, I applied a second coat. It took 8 buckets and averaged 325 sq ft/bucket. It took about 3 hours to put down the 2nd coating and was much easier to apply. The driveway looks great.
One bit of advice: if you have a new or very porous driveway, put two coats on the asphalt and use this cheaper alternative for the initial coat. Then on the second coat (if you do desire) you could use one of the more expensive latexite sealers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Csc Good product for the price, but
The company really should adjust their coverage rate estimate.
I figured my 2500 sq ft driveway, which was new, uncoated, and porous would get 250-300 sq ft of coverage so I expected 8 or 9 buckets would do the job (but bought 11 just to be safe). After applying the first bucket and realizing I wasn't going to get anywhere near 250 sq ft/bucket, I immediately sent the wife back to get 10 more buckets to finish
I ended up using 14.5, for an average coverage of about 175. I'm sure future coats will require much less
Other than that, I was very pleased with the performance of the sealer. Stired easily, spread really well, looks great (less than 4 hours since finishing - 5 hours to apply 14.5 buckets to 2500 sq ft).
I'll check back in about six months to report on how the product looks over the long term
