Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Game Changer! I purchased one of these as a "trial" a few months ago for an interrior painting project and I was an instant fan. This roller seemed to spread paint more smoothly and evenly than the standard rollers I've worked with in the past. Best of all was its ability to wash perfectly clean and dry to near new condition. One painting pet peave of mine with stand rollers is that no matter how long I wash and scrub them I can never get them perfectly clean. It seems like there is always just a little more paint coming off of them. Then when they dry, they never have that "like new" fluffy texture, but instead the fibers "clump" a bit. This microfiber roller washed perfectly clean and when it dried it was basically good as new. The second time I used it, it performed just as well as the first time. I will only be buying microfiber rollers in the future! Complete game changer for me. September 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fantastic roller although i am far from a pro, i probably do 5-10X the amount of painting as the average homeowner. i tried this new roller and was amazed - it was the best roller i've ever used. no lint to come off with first time use. it held a lot of paint and spread evenly. i'll use this one from now on!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love these roller covers! After experimenting with a few different ones, I now use these roller covers for all my wall painting. It says "smooth to semi-smooth" surfaces, which does a perfect job of providing real coverage on my walls. October 28, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this roller cover!!! I paint - A LOT - projects, projects, projects. But recently I finally found the right shade of aqua (been sampling for almost 5 yrs) and decided to paint our house - all by myself. Jeez what a job - I probably should've given this some more thought but I was so excited about the color and once I started I had to finish it. I always keep extra roller covers around and usually go with Purdy brand paint tools based on years of experience painting. But when I gathered everything up I realized I didn't have any smooth roller covers. Our house is solid Hardi panels with a wood grain pattern; so semi-smooth to smooth surfaces. I went to our local HD to check out their selection and I found this cover. I was skeptical but bought one of these and my usual Purdy roller cover too. I usually use 2 covers while painting as one is always soaking or drying between coats & stopping points. I used this cover right away and viola! Works just as good as the name brand for less than half the cost. This cover fit the Purdy roller I have; no signs of lint (which happened with another brand microfiber cover) and no smearing or dragging (another problem I've had with generic roller covers) I was just at HD 2 days ago and I picked up 3 more of these to replenish my stock.. It's my new go to smooth surface roller cover! Thanks HD for carrying a great inexpensive alternative to the name brand covers. July 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is wonderful and I love how there are no streaks I have used many rollers in my life and I am currently painting my entire home inside and out and I love these rollers and will never use another brand or roller ever again. I highly recommend these and I feel blessed that I found them. June 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality roller I've used these rollers before and bought them again because of the good quality finish they leave. Smooth coverage and no caking, good rollers. February 11, 2014
