Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orijohnal Worked well on concrete block walls
1st use was a great success. My application was latex paint on unfinished concrete block walls. This was a good first project on which to practice and experiment with settings. Performance depends on the right combination of settings and technique. I would give the 570 5 stars but the limitations of its design requires frequent refills but at this price point it was the right product for occasional use. Cleanup after painting is always a pain unless you just throw away your tools. This is no exception but disassembly and reassembly got easier with practice. I'm happy with this purchase after one project. Durability/reliability has yet to be proven.

I've used this sprayer on two projects. Two garage doors and the front door. Please head to Wagner's site before purchasing and gage for your projects. I would like to use this to paint the house a floor at a time but refilling the container i feel would slow me down too much.
Wagner has products that feed straight from the can. This seemed to be the best choice at the time but would have chosen others if i had known. Wagner has larger volume sprayers that can also be changed to work best for a smaller project as well.
It works well. I definitely recommend.

I was spraying stain on my deck with this unit and without warning the blower stopped working, It ran for approx. 2hrs and 10 min from taking it out of the box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wms An awesome hand paint sprayer for the price.
This was the first time that I used a paint sprayer. It is very simple and easy to use. One thing I picked up on from the owners manual was that you occasionally needed to clean and clear the nozzle of dried paint. With this sprayer I needed to do this after a couple of hours. Talking with some professional painters they told me that this was a normal thing that they had to do with their bigger paint sprayers. Overall I am pleased with this new addition to my tool box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MIgirl88 Totally worth the extra money
I was painting my entire kitchen (including all of the cabinets, inside and out) so I thought getting a sprayer would be more efficient for doing all of the doors and getting in the inside details. I had originally bought the smaller Wagner 5.4 GPH sprayer for $68 and used that on my cabinet doors. I thought it was OK. Had to do "priming" for it which was holding the trigger down for 20 seconds while it shook/vibrated to the point my hand was numb, and made a noise so bad I used earplugs, and then the paint would start flowing and you had to make adjustments to get it right. Left that one in MI and got the same one back in Iowa to do the inside of the cabinets. That one was clogged up from the very first use and was so horrible I basically had to redo the whole outside of the cabinets from the huge globs it left. Then I looked at reviews, realized that one had horrible ratings, and found the Flexio 570 sprayer. Biggest. Difference. Ever.
This sprayer was amazing. So easy to put together, tons quieter, and none of that priming- just grab it and go. The coverage was so smooth and I easily switched the direction of spray from horizontal to vertical and a wide spray to a more narrowed spray without skipping a beat. My cabinets look amazing and the coverage was superb. Yes it does have a little bit of over spray, but every sprayer does so just make sure to tape/tarp off and you'll be fine. I sprayed all of the cabinets inside and out in about 10-15 minutes (had to move the step stool around as I was painting on both levels.)
The Flexio 570 is 100% worth spending the little extra on if you're looking at buying a sprayer anyways. I plan on using it on the last 2 bedroom walls, the bricks outside of my house in the spring, and to stain my deck as well. My mom is returning the other one and buying this one instead because of how big of a difference there was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Another great product by Wagner
The Flexio 570 Wagner Spray gun is a great companion for any paint job. This gun will not take rollers and brushes out of the equation but will certainly cut down painting time and effort significantly. You get a large iSpray Nozzle that covers larger areas or the smaller Detail Finish Nozzle for finish touch or small areas.
Spray width adjustment lever to determine the pattern of spray and power dial makes this gun perfect for all painting tasks. Owner’s Manual provides great spraying techniques.
Even though it’s made to handle any size project but you will add more time to your work if the area you are painting is small and indoors since you have to do a lot of prepping before you start; and cleaning after the paint is done. I use it only when I need to cover large areas. The outcome of paint results makes you feel like a pro.
Cleaning process is very easy and takes about 20 minutes for the first time. Once you know exactly how to clean, every subsequent time will then take less than 10 minutes. As part of maintaining the gun, the only additional recurring cost is air filters which you have to replace once the current filter gets excessively dirty. Overall, it’s a great product by Wagner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stephene A great upgrade...
I bought this to stain my very large two level deck. I have a very old Power Painter. I decided to try this new one rather than trying to find new swirl valves. I'm not a painter and would prefer not to paint. However, the 570 was amazing. First, because I'm not a painter, I actually read the instructions. Please don't tell my friends. I used the 1.5 quart cup that came with it, set the pattern, put it on low, and started spraying. I played with the material setting and found I liked it a little heavier so I could move faster. I was surprised how well it felt and how quiet it is. Not a painter, I figured out how important the patterns were. I could adjust it one way for spraying the rails and another for the decking. I have a big deck, so it took me a while to finish. I finished the first coat easily before the football game started. I decided on a second coat but had to split that into two 'sessions'. So, in all I had to clean the sprayer 3 times for this first project. I refilled the cup many times! That might bother serious painters or if you're doing a lot of ladder work, but I wasn't worried about that. Using Baer stain, it cleaned up very easily with just water and liquid soap. I had to scrub some where overspray dried, but it was great. I'd never thought of staining my fence, but this went so well, I'm starting to look at the fence.

Save your money and time. Just after 5 minutes of operation, the sprayer began to clog and sputter.
I cleaned the device multiple times and the sprayer just would not perform. The box looks good on the shelves and that is where it needs to stay.
If you feel the need to use a paint sprayer, you should consider using an aerosol paint cans for your project.
I spend more time cleaning and returning the sprayer than actual painting.
Wagner needs to seriously reconsider the design of their sprayers and hire different engineers.
