I purchased this sprayer last year to paint my garage doors. It worked well for that. I then cleaned/oil and put the sprayer away. I used it to paint louvered doors today. It worked well for the first few minutes, then it would stop and start spraying, spitting large globs of paint as it restarted. I took it apart multiple time to clean the sprayer and thin the paint, eventually thinning the paint so much it became runny. I ended up hosing off the doors to remove the paint and will have to start over (with a brush) after the doors are cleaned and dry.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DYILady41 Easy to use and a good value
Overall the Wagner Optimus Paint Sprayer was decent. It was easy to use and handle. I only wished the droplets were finer and the coat smoother. I was working with ordinary indoor latex paint. It seemed to want to spray a lot of paint, even at the lowest setting. I didn't even get near the heaviest setting. That was way too much paint! Maybe it was the standard nozzle that it comes with. If you want a better spray it may pay to invest in a different nozzle. I also wasn't thrilled with the pattern of the included nozzle. But, the sprayer was light, inexpensive, and out of the box I was painting!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by USVET This product did a great job
I painted my barn in 3 hours using red Behr barn and fence paint. I worked steady for the 3 hours, no breaks for anything, so there was no clogging. It was easy clean up afterwards, it comes completely apart for easy cleaning. A keeper.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Chris It's going back!
Yes, I followed the directions....several times. Wasted more time & money cleaning product trying to get it to work. As with a previous review, the only thing it would spray was water. I'm sticking with spray paint in a spray can; at least I know it will work & not wasted money & time!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by CGLEZ WASTE OF TIME
After reading the reviews, it seemed that 50% of the people had good luck with this sprayer, and the other 50% didn't. I figured I'd take my chances and try it out. BIG MISTAKE. It started off fantastic, unfortunately it literally only worked for 2 minutes, would not spray after that, it would just sputter. I read and followed the manual to the tee, and even cleaned it out and started all over. No luck. It was a big waste of time. After taken another 30 min to clean it out again, I just grabbed my roller and got it done. I will be taking it back today. Don't waste your time. DON"T BUY THIS UNIT.
