Got a straight clean line with this tool. In my opinion the line looks cleaner then with tape. Like someone mentioned in a previous review you have to brush pain onto this edger with a separate brush to keep the job clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Shur-Line Edger (Unreal investment)
This easy to use edger made cutting a breeze. If you take your time to ensure the wheels/edges are clean with a saturated pad, you'll have clean cuts with paint where you want it. I'm not a pro by any means but I just bought a house and did a ton of painting. The first few rooms I used a high quality brush (still recommend to have) to edge but this takes a lot of time if you have the desire to do it right. After this cheap investment, I watched a few youtube videos to determine the best way to use this product (Very insightful). It cut my cutting down (pun intended) to say a quarter of the time it would have originally with a brush for the same room. Great investment. I can't say enough about this product, I absolutely love it.

This thing works awesome. Made all the edging easy and left a very professional look. I will be using this for the rest of my painting.

Bought these thinking they would speed up some edging but the plastic is so flimsy and cheap the brush part kept falling out. I got so frustrated i threw it away after 5 mins. I will never buy another one of these products. I see they have a "pro" edger that might hold up better perhaps. Oh well...

You can use the side with the rollers to zip along with the edging, or flip it around for a closer, more precise line. Man these saved my a lot of time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricStiles Works very well
This thing works well. I just poor some paint in paint tray. I drop it in flat and pull it back out of the tray. You don't want to fill with too much paint. I also keep an eye on the rollers, you want to make sure they don't get paint on them. Then wow, the amount of paint that it will spread at a very fast pace is crazy and right up against your other wall or molding. For such a cheap little item it sure works well.

This tool makes cutting in on the ceiling a breeze, and gives you a nice straight line (with respect to how straight the ceiling is, at least). You can use it for other corners, as well, but I mainly stick to the ceiling with it.
A few notes: avoid getting any paint on the wheels, the second you do, you will get paint on the ceiling. For this reason, I still tape the ceiling, but I don't have to be exactly to the corner anymore, making it much quicker to tape - and providing more protection for the roller hitting the ceiling. Tape is cheap, and in this scenario - it is cheap insurance.
Another note, be very light with the pressure, especially on the bottom of the tool, as paint will collect there and you can get a lot of paint at the bottom of the cut in. What I usually do there is just make another pass, but at the bottom of the cut in to wipe the paint further down, thus removing the chance of a run or a thick visible buildup.
The pad pops off quite easily and is really easy to clean, making the reusability very high.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer I'm impressed!
We painted our living room using this and I wish I had known about this product much sooner. Our paint lines came out nice and straight. I agree with some of the other reviews, that as long as you don't load it with too much paint, your lines will be smooth. Otherwise, you risk lots of drips and possibly smudging your lines. I wasn't brave enough to use it without taping first and I'm glad I didn't. Unless you have a super steady hand I'd say it's good to at least tape your baseboards. I won't do another paint job without one of these on hand!
