Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pheasantman54 This Sprayer is Awesome!!
We currently own a 103 year old 9000 sq. foot mansion. Renovation projects are always exciting and we are always looking for time saving products. This sprayer was exactly the ticket for a major basement project. It has probably saved at least 15 hours of time already as well as a beautiful professional look. Using a sprayer inside can be somewhat dangerous but with a latex paint it cuts down the catastrophe level! The sprayer is very easy to use and I can't believe how quick and easy it cleans up! I have told a bunch of my friends about this amazing product and can't wait to turn it loose on some outdoor projects this summer. Give this product a try! Great results! Nice cost value! Awesome! Awesome!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SamN Kilz 2 Latex Primer on cedar
First of all, it was a little confusing purchasing this because there is also a Control Spray MAX model, which I think is the newer version of the Plus model, and I think there were multiple SKUs for the Plus model which made it even more confusing.
Anyhow, I'm in the process of using this to paint a fence using Kilz 2 Latex Primer. The first time I tried it without diluting the primer, but the second time I diluted it and it works MUCH better diluted.
I just added a few ounces of water from my reverse osmosis filter and the spray comes out nice and even. Without dilution, it comes out a little splatty.
I've used it probably 8-10 hours so far without any problems. Cleanup is much faster and cleaner than using brushes and rollers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CC54 An excellent product for the price
I made this purchase after reading reviews on this site and felt I was led to a good decision. I have to spray a polyurethane enamel marine on a number of small boats. Although not specifically designed to spray paints I have found the sprayer to work very well with paint thinned to an appropriate thickness. The adjustable volume works well to create a controllable spray. The sprayer works so well and fast that I have found that I spend more time setting it up and cleaning it than the job itself which takes only a couple of minutes. Although not built for professional use, this seems a good value in a home sprayer that will get light to moderate use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CheapKitchenRemodeler Great for cabinets
I purchased this sprayer mostly for painting the inside of our outdated kitchen cabinets. Diluting the paint is a must, and it takes a little time to get the right consistency. But once you do, painting goes really fast. Getting into all of the corners and little areas would have taken forever with a brush. But I made quick work of it with this sprayer. I had to watch for drippage, and I kept a brush and a drip rag in my back pocket. But that was mostly for my own inability to put on a light coat.
It worked great, it was really inexpensive, it made the job much faster, and it was super easy to clean. So far, I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScorpioRay I love it
I read a ton of reviews on this before I purchased. I couldn't be happier. I got valspar paint and thinned it out )with more water than they recommended) and painted my new interior doors. You have to be careful to put more than one coat on...too much at one time and it will run. Also, make sure you use this in an open area you don't mind getting paint spray everywhere. I used my garage and it coated the interior with a light white paint...THANK GOD I MOVED EVERYTHING OUT FIRST! Couldn't ask for a better dsprayer. Also, make sure you clean it immediately after using. A+ product though..This was my first time using a paint sprayer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rhett Good for painting lattice, once you develop the skill.
I found that you can't rush the job, painting lattice panels, it sure beats hand painting.
I found that putting all components, in a pail of warm soap and water, before I cleaned each individual, broken down item, made clean up easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by printpro Great product, not for paint!
I have been using this unit every day for 8 years spraying varnish on fine art canvas in a ventilated spray room. When the nozzle and filter are clean it works very well. I use the 12 inch vertical setting with the flow set to 2 and get a good clean finish every time. I find it is best to spray in 4 or five layers. This eliminates running or drips. If I notice any spitting, I clean the nozzle and make sure my varnish does not have any clumps. 5 minutes and I'm back in business. If you read the specs, this unit is not for spraying paint, it is for thin varnishes and urethane. This is why others have had trouble with coverage. I use 50% water and 50% acrylic varnish and it flows fine. They even include a viscosity measure to make sure your spray isn't too thick. Read the directions! This is a good product if used right.
