Rated 4 out of 5Â by ARHam Easy to use, and good quality
I was working on a kitchen cabinet project for my home, and had been using brushes and rollers for the first two thirds of doors and drawers. After doing those, I broke down and decided to try using a sprayer to save some time.
This sprayer was appealing due to the finishing quality I had read about online.
Needless to say, it was a good investment. What took 2 hours with a brush and roller took fifteen minutes with the sprayer.
Clean up is simple, I've actually been cleaning it with hot water, rather than anything else. To clean it, I disassemble the unit, fully wash and clean, then fill the container with hot water, reconnect everything, and spray a full load of water. This has served quite well in cleaning out the device.
I'm using a thin oil-based paint, which certainly helps.
There is some overspray, but it is manageable in my case.
I would highly recommend this sprayer for small jobs, such as painting cabinetry, though I don't think I would ever paint a room with it.

I hate painting regardless of the tools, so here is my review of the tool. First, READ THE USER MANUAL. Simple as that and you will not have any problems. Assembly out of the box took seconds. The controls are simple and straight forward. Pay attention to which direction you want to paint, horizontal or vertical. This determines which way you turn the nozzle. Determine how much volume spray you need to apply the paint and adjust the volume control accordingly. As for over spray, well, it's a sprayer. All nozzles over spray, so make sure you mask your work surface or work in an area where the over spray is not an issue. And be aware of 'after spray'. When you let go of the trigger it continues to blow for a few seconds and will spray paint, so be careful where you point it when you let go of the trigger. My table saw has a nice white speckled decoration now. Clean up is super easy! Rinse out the bucket then run clean water or cleaning solvent through the sprayer until you get a clean stream. Then disassemble and clean with water. It comes apart very easily and goes back together just as easily. I ran water down the intake tube and pull the trigger to flow water through the nozzle. Run a paper towel or a flexible brush through the intake spout to clean out any paint stuck to the inside. As for how well it works, it's very good for the price/quality range. It's not a professional tool, but for small jobs or occasional use it works quit well.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by goodymckeev This product has many flaws!!!
I bought this product knowing that it had many flaws, however I still need to get the painting done. After 3 months of owner ship and some adjustment on how it sprays paint everywhere the trigger broke and now it is on when I plug it in or off when it is unplugged. I cannot find a replacement trigger on the parts list and every time I call the 1-800-328-8251 no one answers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Fites494 Don't read into the negative reviews.
I bought this sprayer for refinishing my bathroom cabinet doors. I hesitated after reading all the negative reviews. This sprayer worked very well without having to thin my interior latex paint. The first coat went on without any issues. One thing I figured out right away was in order to get the fine finish I needed for cabinets I would have to by the fine finish attachment. I gave the doors a light sanding then sprayed them with the fine finish sprayer and they turned out beautiful. This sprayer alone is designed for jobs that don't require a smooth look like cabinets. It's designed for a more roller like look. So just make sure when you're using this sprayer you use it for the right job. No clogging issues like others have complained about.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kisingen Good product
I just purchased PaintReady sprayer and was using it for 4 hours. Overall i would say it is working as expected and it is doing job especially for non tinned havy paint sach as latex. I realize it is spending a lot of paint and that is what i was looking for for good coverage stained concrete wall, first time painted. I read a lot of review for this and for different products and definitelly i would say Wagner is the right brand to go with and i see customer servis is giving their best. What else do you need? Since i am designer i am judging all other designs and i may say i liked what i saw. I had some issues accesing certain corners since unit is not small and you can not tilt it more than 45 deg but it is expected of this kind compact unit. It is not too noisy, be honest i expected more noise of this type of motor/turbine. Good. And at end like every painting job it get messy when you need to clean it! Do not go on the brake after job is done until deassemble it and clean it up properly. Some paint dries fast and it may be just harder later. Just be careful with all parts and try understand placement and funcionality. I believe most of negative comment coming from not placed parts around nozle properly. Anyways the bigest trouble i had when i was cleaning it and was deasembling air valve with smal hose on top of container holder! There is very small seal inside which was dropping down and getting in to the sink drain! (i didnt have a mesh) I stopped imediately and deassembled my sink drain looking for it but noway. It is gone! It is my fault but i didnt expect so small light part and i need to look for another one. Not sure where i can find it but i would purchase at least 2. My nex project wil wait a bit until i get it. Overall i am very satisfied.
