Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by enem156 Better than I expected
I bought this sprayer to paint the ceiling of my unfinished basement. I used a good quality latex paint that was an eggshell black. I was a little leary about the thickness because it was one of the thickest paints I have ever worked with, but from the time I first pulled the trigger until I was done, this sprayer worked like a charm. It layed on an even coat and had no trouble at all spraying paint as thick as I was using. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to do my entire basement ceiling and I went through only two gallons of paint. Very pleased with the finished results. The sprayer was easy to set up after reading through the instructions, and I never had to change the initial settings that I dialed in. Cleanup was a bit tedious, but they did a great job of minimizing the parts, so it went very well. I expected the cleanup to be a pain, just because it's a paint sprayer. Seemed like a given to me. Can't wait to have to use it again.

This thing is slicker than snail snot!! I prayed a 40 foot fence with Kilz Latex, straight out of the bucket, 2 coats, front and back in 3 hours total. I absolutely DESPISE painting, and this made it totally enjoyable. The awnings and garage are next. Clean up was easy with this thing only having 1 seal and just a few other parts. They really nailed it with this thing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mike Very satisfied with the results
Needed to sand and stain a huge outdoor wooden children's play/ swing / gym set. Put it off for a few years due to the amount of work involved . Last time I stained it by hand with brushes . Didn't think a sprayer would work well on all the angles and narrow boards. But was able to adjust the gun to give just the right coverage and minimize overspray ... It worked flawlessly with much less mess than brushes . Actually kind of enjoyed doing it . Results were outstanding with solid cedar stain.just this one job was worth the price .

I'm sure this might work if you had the time and desire to become an expert. However, for a DIYer, it was too messy and complicated. I still have it, and will try to make it work in the future, but I'm afraid most of my paint jobs require the old fashioned roller technique.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AgencyMan Great Product!
This is a great product with excellent customer support. Not right off the truck I already own two other paint sprayers. One is a serious airless and the other a small touch up aerosol type. Had a job to repaint an "Orange" front door and after looking at it figured my little touch up rig might cut it. Well it did not and with a delivery date drawing near went online to see what Depot had available. The one I wanted was not sold in store, a problem they seem to have with a lot of things but the reviews and specs on this were good when I looked online. So I bought it this morning about 9am. Not a soul in the department but I went for it having read everything I could on it beforehand.
This thing works great. At first I played with the settings and painted away on some sheetrock with varying results. Some not too good and some so so. I called Wagners 800 number and got a very good service gal after a short wait who did a great job. Asked all the right questions including the exact details on the paint (commercial not household stuff) I was using and came back to me shortly with a couple suggestions. My problem was splatter. After trying the suggestions I went to the last one which was to thin the paint slightly. IT WORKED IMMEDIATELY like I figured it should and I was home free. My wife came out in the shop after the first side was finished and said Wow! Looks like a million bucks. My only answer was, " This will get me the repeat business I want from this account" and smiled. I was shooting a special color match from Rodda Paints in semi gloss latex enamel (hate latex enamel) with a gloss rating of 5 and this piece of equipment did a very nice job.
I highly recommend it. Take the time completely read the directions, give it a try and if you still are unsure as I was call the Wagner 800 number for some professional assistance. Best to all Bob

So my wife and I are remodeling our house and decided to purchase this tool to make it simpler, sadly our results have been not so good it is very abnormal and is never uniform some areas take longer than others as the nozzle becomes dirty quickly I would rather Paint by brush wish to could get my money back . . .

I used this with exterior latex and it was not as good as it seemed. It does not lay the paint smoothly, it splatters it and thus requires two times the amount of paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maria Easy to use and clean
Easy to put together and start using. Has cut painting time in half. Cleaning tool has to be done carefully but it's a lot easier than cleaning pans and rollers. In my opinion it saves paint too. Spend a little time extra prepping the room and the clean up after painting will be a breeze. Nice coverage and corners look great! The only drawback is some parts seem a little flimsy, everything on the hand unit is plastic, but otherwise it wouldn't be as easy to clean.
