Answer: 
Use green (or blue) board for walls. Use regular (this stuff) for the ceiling. Green board on the ceiling traps moisture and will be problematic.

I definitely would not use this where water is splashing and there is lots of steam. A moisture barrier / vapor barrier or water resistant drywall is a must, otherwise it will look great for about a month or so and then start to crumble and have to be redone anyways.

Answer: 
Probably the best application of this product would be ceilings. Since it is lightweight, it would be easier holding it overhead, but be carefull. It is lightweight, but it may break easily if you are not careful in handling it.

Hello!! Thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock Ultralight 4'X8' Panels. A single sheet of 1/2" 4'X8' Sheetrock Ultralight weighs approximately 41lbs, so, carrying it in any SUV or car would be no problem. Actually fitting it into the vehicle will be the tricky part.

No, I would not recommend this material for that purpose. This material, in it's raw form, is chalky and dusty and would not suit that need. It's also meant as a wall and ceiling cladding, not as a structural building material.

Hello teli, thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock Ultralight Gypsum Panels. Gypsum Panels in general would not make good shelves. They cannot take the wear and tear that something like a plywood shelf could take plus they do not have the same structural properties for supporting weight on them that a piece of plywood would have being used as a flat surface.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Material does not need my support; it sells itself. This material did the job it was purchased to do. It was very easy to cut and install. The finish was smooth. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad product. I bought some of this to replace some 35 year old drywall. It is light, but very very fragile. Every screw on the edge breaks chunks off, or when you find a void, it will just pull the screw thru. Going to be pulling it all back down and replacing with standard board if I can even find it. The old stuff that I took off was much much more durable than this junk. There is about 200 bucks worth of drywall that will go in the dumpster. i wouldn't use this for the inside of a closet let alone a ceiling. Total trash. April 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk it is to brittle crumbles is the worst wallboard i have ever use will not buy again will get the regular board even if it is heaver February 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! September 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product 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. May 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light but Sturdy 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. May 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Definitely Light 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.
