At first, I was hesitant to use this product, I have always used Deft brushing lacquer. I wanted to try a water based poly mainly because of its low to no odor. This product is excellent! It was easy to use, definitely very low odor compare to oil based poly, and the quality was superb. I put on 7 coats on a oil stained 2x6 boards and it went on smoothly with no bubbles and no brush marks. Highly recommended!
The photo attached is only 3 coats, the one board was just freshly brushed that is why is it looks more glossy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by manfromphilly clear natural look and easy to use
i am a layman consumer who applied finishing for the first time. i wanted the minwax brand for $20+ but home depot had only this for $15. this works perfectly as promised. it is easy to apply with a paint brush and easy to clean up with soap and water. it was raining all week but it dried to the touch within 2-3 hours. i applied 4 coats on my poplar desktop and let it cure for 3 days. in terms of looks, i can't tell that this finish is there. the wood looks natural like it was untreated. that's what i wanted! it is invisibly protecting the wood from coffee, moisture, etc. i love the natural look of wood. i don't see any yellowing. i'm very pleased with this and i'm glad that i picked this up and saved some money too.

I use this Poly very frequently and highly recommend it. No brush strokes when used with a good quality brush. Dries pretty fast and the low odor is great for finishing in a garage with the door open. Hard/Glossy finish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by erick Quality finish
This is the product that I choose to finish woodworking projects that want to last forever. When applied with a quality brush, this product dries with absolutely no brush strokes visible whatsoever, which is quite impressive. It also dries incredibly fast, so applying multiple coats does not take a tremendous amount of time.
Don't cheap out and apply only one or two coats to your project. Follow the instructions on the can and actually put a minimum of three coats on. It produces a true professional finish.
Durability seems to be decent as well. I finished a coffee tabletop with it a year ago, and there are only minor faint scratches that are visible when light hits it a certain way. Overall, i'm satisfied though.
