Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wow6599 Do not use with stain
I cannot speak to how this handles paint, as I purchased it to use to stain my fence. I got through about 1/4 of my fence before it tripped my breaker. Once I reset the breaker, still wouldn't work. I took it apart to discover stain had gotten into the motor area. So, I returned it to the store for another one. The second one, I got through only 1 and a half more fence sections before my breaker tripped again. I took it apart, and sure enough, stain was in the motor area again. I am returning the second one and I will not purchase this again. As far as the spraying itself, when it did work, it sprayed a lot, and the over spray was quite heavy. I had to do about 5 fence boards at one time then stop and use a brush to smooth it out because it was very heavy and dripping everywhere, even on the lightest settings. I kept this unit upright the entire time, so I do not know how the stain keeps getting into the motor. Also, the unit was a little heavy to hold and use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zamster I must be have bought a different sprayer
Than others have reviewed. I opened the box, scanned the directions that pertained to latex paint and then proceeded to paint my fence. Overall, I am very impressed with the delivery and quantity of paint. The paint was going on somewhat thick so I reduced the paint flow and paid more attention to maintaining a consistent motion in application. The cleanup is somewhat tedious but I'll take that in comparison to the time it will save me over painting by hand. I only have one hour in (it got windy) but I expect it will save me 80% over painting by hand. I'm pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBone Great sprayer!
We have a bedroom with a popcorn ceiling in a very old house. It looked so dingy, and thought we'd have to hire a professional to spray it. We were thrilled to find this sprayer at Home Depot. There are many different kinds, but the salesman was very knowledgeable & guided us to the best one for our needs. My daughter did the spraying, and it turned out magnificent! We not only saved money by not hiring a professional, but we still have the sprayer for future jobs. I highly recommend!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Wagner flexible sprayer not good
I have had this sprayer less than a month. Put about 4 gal of paint thru it. Has always leaked and dribbled paint. Cleaned it up right after use with soap and water and ran lacquer thinner thru it. Still spits and sputters. Going to return it

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buyinghouseisaproject777 Amazing - best i've ever used
This is the third spray gun that I've purchased since buying a home and starting my remodeling, the first two were junk - Ryobi and a Krause & Becker. This one I was hesitant to buy because I had wasted money on the other two that sprayed ok for 20 mins then clogged and would never work right again after 10-20 mins of use, regardless of how thin you made the paint or followed instructions exactly. Krouse & becker nozzle tip cracked when i went to tighten it, ruining the gun. Anyways, I bought this one- thinned my latex base paint just a little (said i did not need to but i feel it works better for spray guns if you thin a little bit) filled the gun up, and had the whole exterior of my house painted in a couple hours. The trigger allows you to squeeze further for a thicker spray or lighter for less, you can adjust the pattern to narrow for more distance, quality is amazing. not once did the gun clog, spray incorrectly or give me any problems. I'm sure others have went through what i did with junk guns, so I normally don't write reviews but I this gun worked so good for me i felt I should write a review. Definitely would recommend - going to use this one for a long time to come.

The sprayer saved us a lot of money in paint. Probably saved a 1/3 in paint and the surface was much better than using a brush.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Boltdude01 Warning if you're using a stain
We had a wooden fence put up in our backyard (about 100 ft) and chose to protect it with a stain paint. We used Behr Transparent and bought the Wagner Flexio 570 with the recommendation of the paint sales guy. The sprayer ruined our fence. The stain came out real blotchy and there were drips everywhere. I stopped using the sprayer half way through and painted by hand...What a disappointment
