Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernTMT Easy to Use, clears clogs quickly and great tool
It is easy to handle, follow the directions to ensure you don't over fill the container and ensure you have enough paint to allow the paint sprayer to perform as designed. I used the pro power paint sprayer to paint my bench I made. In the past I have used brush and rollers, this was by far quicker to get the job done. Then new reversable tip made clearing the clog quick and easy. I am a hands on and love to see visuals. I would like to see a quick start guide included, but other than that small sugguestion. I am very satisfied with my pro power spray painter. It is like any other tool, you must take care of it by cleaning it. The brushes and oil includes made the clean up job easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by meno11 Every homeowner or DIYer should own one.
The Ryobi 18v ProTip Sprayer is an excellent product and I would recommend it for any homeowner or DIYr. 7 years ago I painted the entire outside of my house with Behr Ultra paint but I applied it using brushes and rollers. The paint looked great and held up well but the task was extremely labor intensive doing it with brushes and rollers. I recently had to remove an old window and resized the opening for a standard size window. I ended up having to redo and repaint a section of siding. I purchased a new gallon of Behr Ultra exterior paint but this time I applied it using the ProTip Sprayer. The job was extremely easy to do with the sprayer and the results were great. I set up the ProTip on a piece of scrap wood and put all the items I needed to do the task on a couple of saw horses. I tightened all the fittings prior to the test run. However, there existed some dripping. The drip issue was solved easily by applying some plumbers tape to the male threads for the locking nut located on the front of the housing. This worked well and I no longer had any leakage. The Ryobi Sprayer is still considered a tool and should be cleaned , maintained and stored properly like any other quality tool. Taking a little time to soak the parts in warm water and soap. Brush all parts with the cleaning brush included with the sprayer making sure to add a few drops of oil on the piston shaft. I compared cleaning the paint sprayer to cleaning a small firearm. If you want it to give you good results always take the time and clean it, store it and maintain it like you would an expensive gun.

This little thing is great. I used it to stain a 300sq ft deck with Tranlucent stain. It turned out beautiful. It looks as if I had a professional painter complete it. I love that it is rechargable so you don't have to drag a cord around. I did have to charge it twice to complete my project with 2 coats.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GarageGal Expensive battery and charger
Initial impression was GREAT! First ten minutes and 1/2 gallon in performed as desired (even better since it was cordless!!). But then shortly into the second battery pack something happened and I began painting graffiti rather than nice even swaths. Tried the gimmicy nozzle clearing, no go. Took off the entire nozzle spray, disassembled, washed and tried again. More graffiti. Ended up rolling on the remaining paint (Ben Moore Ultraspec - probably $45/gallon) since I did not want to go back to the store, buy another gallon that I really shouldn't have to get. So, I at least have an extra battery charger and pack for my drill that does work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by migs this product i will recomend to home owner best for the small jobs around the house
this sprayer came out just in the time i was looking for something to finish the room remodel i was doing
i am an owner of a lot of ryobi tools and this sprayer is a good addition to my tool box. I use it specially for the white color on my ceiling and all the crown base and casing of the room came out excelent.
the only recommendation i'll add is if the container shape and size be a little more capacity for like it happend to me the ceiling otherwise it very good tool and easy to disasemble and clean

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by murO WHY SPEND MORE FOR CORDLESS?
I was hesitant to spend a little more for the cordless over the corded sprayer. After using the sprayer on several jobs of different levels i found that over my corded one it , #1 SAVED TIME ON SETTING UP #2 DIVERSE FOR EVEN THE SMALLEST PROJECT. # 3 GOOD OVERALL SPRAY
clean up is also a breeze, completely satisfied!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carl Continuously drips
I am a strong believer in Ryobi products and have used them for many years but something was very wrong using this sprayer. I spent over 3 hours trying to work with it trying to spray properly and not drip. Finally returned it to Home Depot the next day embarrassed since it looked as though I had used the sprayer over 6 months. I still think Ryobi is a good value on their products and their quality but the engineers have to take another look at this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1500 better than i thought
after the 1st try I almost took it back.....paint dripping and leaking everywhere.........took it apart and reassemble correctly and now it works like it is suppose to with great spray and no leaks............it's easy to get it put back together so that it is a train wreck of paint everywhere, but if you take your time and follow the instructions it works perfectly............now our doors and trim look great and our deck only took an afternoon to paint instead of two full weekends.....get another tool with a battery so you have two.
