We purchased the Smart Roller for a very large paint job in our home. We have 16 foot walls and the Smart Roller really saved us from going up and down the ladder multiple times. The roller performed as we had hoped. The screwed in handle seems to loosen (I guess by design) when changing the position of the roller, as to get close to the corner. Therefore, you have to regularly/frequently tighten down the handle. You also need to watch for pressure on the roller. We put too much pressure on the roller and it snapped off its plastic clamp, and paint came pouring out of the roller head. Clean up is alittle involved. I would use this again for large jobs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AshM Some issues
I bought this to repaint my lower floor. On the first room it worked great but as I went to the second room the roller started falling off pouring paint everywhere (as others have said in their reviews). I decided to cool my head so I cleaned it thoroughly and waited until the next day to continue. I had no issues with it until the roller became saturated and fell off again so instead of cleaning I just threw the roller away. Well, apparently there a plastic insert that you need to attach the roller to the system. It comes off with the roller and it's near impossible to find a replacement so you have to buy a whole new assembly. I'm going to pick it up today just to finish but wouldn't recommend this to someone who can't handle a few issues.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Merll Will not fill with paint
After three days of painting, the system will no longer fill with paint. I have replaced parts and still no results.
Would not recommend the product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by carevalog Cool idea, but a hassle to clean
Really good design and quality, it is just a great idea to avoid dealing with trays and spills. The filling process is seamless, no problem there. I think it is better for touch ups and not for general first coats as you have to work to get sufficient paint flow. Also if you press to much to squeeze more paint, the roller comes off and you get a BIG mess of paint all over the floor, this took a star off.
It is very convenient to paint but the second problem is the cleaning part, it is kind of painful to leave it right to avoid clogging, so sometimes I go with regular rollers to avoid cleaning, which beats the purpose, that takes the second star off.
But in general the product itself is GREAT, good job WAGNER.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mbinny Okay roller with one issue
This is a much faster way to paint a large area. After much practice I discovered you have to Tape over the four holes on the roller tube to prevent air from being drawn in when pulling the plunger. When paint is in the tube halfway, remove the tape and install the roller. Push the plunger to start the roller working. you also MUST clean it well or you won't be able to use it again. Needs better directions.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mere901 My husband is a cussing fool
We are in the process of remodeling our house (inside and out) so I thought this would really help. Apparently not, I'm sitting here in another room as I'm listening to my husband cussing up a storm. The roller keeps falling off and now something else on it has snapped. He's not a happy camper. Great concept, needs work!!

Did spectacular the first time using it. Filled it up the next day and started to pour paint from the fill tube, took it apart to find the duckbill defected. Very unhappy!!
