Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Quality material at a great price!
This drywall is very easy to work with and is very lightweight. One thing I appreciated about this drywall was the paper. Given a good knife, the paper cut easily and didn’t tend to tear. In fact, I really only had to score it before snapping my cut. I also used a couple of different saws on this material with very good results. My keyhole saw works great for manual cutting, and my dremel saw can be set to cut very precisely because the consistency of dimension is perfect every time. This material was easily lightweight enough for me to maneuver by myself. I could actually pick up two sheets with ease and move them around my shop.
For the price, this is a great buy. I highly recommend this drywall for all size construction projects. Home Depot is very competitive on price and this is a quality material that is easy to work with.

Was completely surprised with how light and sturdy this sheetrock is. Initially thought it wouldn't hold up once I started cutting it. Did walls and ceiling with it with the help of my wife. Held up quite well and takes mud just as good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rklsdrivr Ultralight Drywall
Ultralight Drywall is really a great product and in my opinion is a long time coming. I have personally installed millions of feet of drywall, everything from lead backed in x ray rooms, to 1/4 inch flex in round entry ways.. Every type and brand there is, I have worked with. Not only is is lighter, it is easier to work with, more rigid that the original. And I do believe when installed correctly it does make a flatter surface. As anyone will tell you drywall in itself is not a perfect product and the results depend entirely on who is working with it. Lightweight drywall does not have and problems the original doesn't. I used 14,000 feet in my personal house.. No sagging on lids, no cracks. All I can say is Thank You and its a long time coming!

This light but sturdy wallboard is that much easier to instal then traditional board, but the light weight does makes it more fragile handle. For example, picking up one corner of a board lying flat can cause enough stress to crack it, and even minor drops can result in damage. Once it is on the wall (or ceiling) it performs as needed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HandyBob Lighter does not always mean stronger
The sheet is somewhat lighter than the standard drywall sheets, but their claim that it is stronger is incorrect. I kept wondering why it was so easy to fracture corners from normal handling and break through edges when installing drywall screws. I was surprised at how easily the material crumpled instead of breaking up into larger chunks. So, I snapped a piece in half (much easier than standard 1/2" drywall) and noticed the manufacturer injected air into the base material. That will make it lighter, but also much weaker.

Purchased four sheets at my local store. Two out of the four sheets had large air pocket voids. Just plain cheap and poor quality control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeltaLady1946 Will cover 2nd floor walls & ceilings!
We are in the process of putting this Ultra-Light gypsum board up on our 2nd floor which is approx. 600 sq. feet. We could not do this on our own, however, if we did not have a Home Depot panel lifter! It makes it an EZ one-man job!
Because we are in no hurry, we started a few months ago with 10 panels and are now working on the next ten. We only buy and pick up a few each month so by Aug of 2015, we will have our final inspection and will then get our Certificate of Occupancy for our second floor!
No dry wall is light as air, but trust me - this is as light as it's going to get! It's extremely sturdy also, however, unless you treat it roughly - than that's on you!
We will continue to purchase this item from our local Home Depot until such time as we are done!

This was my first time hanging drywall and the products that I purchased from Home Depot were excellent to get the job done and easy enough for a first time user. I started with plastic knives because they were cheaper but they lost their edge quickly and felt weak. The flexible blue steel knives were perfect. More expensive but I should have started with them initially to get the job done right.
