Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kia It is good for coverage not a fine/quality finish
I'm not sure if you can really use this in the interior because it is tough to get nice and clean spray out of this thing. Anyways I bought this because my targeted walls were uneven and not smooth (brick type). there was no way I could use a roller (I would have used a roller if I could). I used Glidden Gripper and I added good amount of water to thin it down. this sprayer was a bit messy but did the job. So I guess it comes down to what to really expect from it. I was not looking for a fine finish and I just wanted a decent coverage and this device could deliver that. It might work better with Latex paint, I did not try. One more thing, cleaning is easy but it is time consuming therefore I recommend to use it for large project so that it's worth the cleaning time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Satch Very Disappointed
Purchased this unit to paint a utility trailer. Didn't require a professional job, but I wanted good coverage. What a mess. I followed the directions on the Rustoleum (15% maximum dilution) and tried various air/ paint combinations. I tried various thinning combinations upto no thinning at all (acetone). Paint droplets just spurted out, no consistency in atomization. It would stop spraying, them start with big mess of unatomized paint. I gave up. I use HVLP equipment at work and never experienced anything like this. I didn't bother to clean it, went right in the dumpster. Home Depot should be ashamed for selling this junk. I can't imagine a project that I would use it on. The hose is to short. The carrying case is a nice feature. The handle made it easier to throw into the back of the dumpster.

a more expensive sprayer, with direct feed from a container would save time running up and down the ladder to refill.

The sprayer works ok. I wouldn't plan on getting an entire house done with the sprayer though. The detail sprayer workers better than the large sprayer. Had to stop several times with the large to take it apart and clean the individual pieces. There is a lot of over spray with the larger sprayer so make time to prep accordingly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jon Not for molding
I purchased this product because it claimed to shoot non-thinned latex. It will, however the orange peal texture it left on my molding was totally unexceptable. I added flotrol and more flotrol until I had added more than a have a bottle to 2 quarts of new Sherwin Williams paint. I made numerous adjustments, but in the end I had to brush out the spray to get the finish I desired. If I had been shooting walls perhaps it would have been acceptable, but I bet I would have ended up rolling it. The sprayer seemed to to have good pressure, and easy cleanup. Perhaps if it were used for stain it would worked out. Unfortunately I will be returning this and purchasing an airless sprayer.

I purchased this product a week ago to paint my 3 car garage. I did use a roller on the room from time to time to compare the 2. I do own an air compressor and metal paint gun. I hoped this would be easier to use. Not really in my opinion. Less to move around and a little quieter over all.
Pros: Easy to set up and get started. There was a quick set up guide to show you the basics. The all in one carry case and vacuum style air pump was nice to store the hose and everything in and enough room left over to store the extension cord I used. The front half of the sprayer breaks down easily to clean. There are not a bunch of complicated parts and only 1 seal to mess with. You have a remote to start and stop the pump on the handle. The seal held up through at least 10 cleanings so far. Des not appear to leak at all. The over all quality of the paint job looks great as expected from an air based sprayer. Great for smaller projects. I felt like I used less paint over all then using the roller. Cheaper to buy then an air compressor and paint gun set up. I did not have to use hearing protection around this unit.
Cons: Even with the Air pump in the container on the floor, having the paint in a bucket attached to the sprayer is very heavy when you are working at or above your head level. The Vacuum hose gets hot fast. When you go to refill the paint can, the paint dries tot he spray tip and can be a pain to clean because you have to do it so often. When it clogs, a simple wipe of the tip is not enough, that just causes the paint to start getting thrown on the wall in large drops and it starts dripping down the front of the gun. I felt like I wasted a lot of paint cleaning the gun all the time. when the paint bucket gets low, it will start sputtering paint all over the place. The paint bucket still is about 1/4 full at this point. being carful at what angles you point the sprayer you can get a little more painting out of it before another refill. Refilling is a bit cumbersome. Not recommended for large projects like mine.
Suggestions: Thin your paint, it helps. Clean the tip often. Get a respirator with the built in face shield.
