Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jamest Gave me problems
I picked up this product because I had some deep sheet rock damage from removing a pedestal sink from a wall. My thought was that since this product is so light it might not sag when I put on thick and it would dry better than dry wall spackle. I ran into problems getting it to cling to the sheet rock and it seemed to never get completely hard. In the end I used a patch kit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Finisher Doesn't live up to its name
I was filling some dents, holes, and scratches in existing drywall before re-painting a room. The label states "patch-n-paint" and "no sanding needed before painting" if correct putty knife technique is used. I used the correct technique as I am a finish contractor. The portions that were filled showed discoloration of final paint color even through 2 coats of primer and the first top-coat. It doesn't sand easily either.
I should have gone with my gut and used some 5 minute drywall compound powder or Bondo.
Don't even try it on PVC trim, I made the mistake assuming it was like regular spackle and could be used on plastic, but it didn't adhere or dry after more than 3 hrs.
Consistency of product is very "fluffy", like the newer whipped cream cheeses and butters. It is GREY in color.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by erik Does not harden completely
Be warned that the product does not completely harden as noted by an earlier reviewer. If the patch will not be touched, this might be ok. However, if the area will be touched, it will deform easily and will have to be re-patched with a different compound. This information should be placed on the product as I assumed it would still harden despite it being lighter weight.
The fault is in the product description, it should also read "remains pliable" in the points on the front label.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Forever to dry, soft, not like spackle
On a 5x5 patch, even after 24 hours, the stuff is still very soft and can be deformed by finger pressure. I will scrape it off and get the traditional spackle. Won't use it again for anything that might need sanding. The no prime feature is not worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tvs75 Easy To Work With
This is great for nail hole cover or light patchwork when sanding out old paint scrapings. It is NOT good for larger scale projects. When it says lightweight...they mean it!. For anything too thick of a coat, it will not work when painted. It comes off with any degree of moisture. It only works for thin patches or seeming paint scrapings or like I use it -- nail holes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Just okay....
The previous owner of my home liked to hang everything with about 12 anchored screws. As a result, I've had tons of small holes to spackle. This product does what it says it does: it is fast-drying, doesn't shrink, low VOC/ zero odor. However, it is not my favorite to work with. It has a drier, less sticky texture and doesn't adhere that well to smooth walls. It also tends to crumble and make a mess as you're patching. I prefer spackle with a wetter consistency, although it takes longer to dry. I suppose it's just a matter of personal preference, but that is the reason I deducted two stars.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 000000 Husband Says "Most Annoying Spackle Ever"
Husband is replacing a section of drywall right now and is *attempting* to use this to fill in the little gaps and smooth out the edges. He says this product is extremely annoying to work with. It doesn't stick at all to the surface (it sticks more to the putty knife than the surface). It crumbles away in big chunks and makes a huge mess. Regular spackle may take a bit longer to dry but it's far easier to work with. Won't be trying this one again.
