Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KadyQ Basically junk
I don't know how anyone can give this molding a good rating. Where do I begin? Paint drips, gouges, cracks, uneven wood....the list goes on. Hard to sand the primer - it's like concrete. Even after careful outside inspection I ended up with multiple issues with numerous boards. I used it during a remodel and I regret it. Oh and it sucks up the paint - took way too many coats since it's supposedly primed. Way more trouble than it's worth. Don't make my mistake - spend more money. Even with careful painting and filling this trim makes my doors and doorways look like I never replaced the trim. It looks like I painted over the old stuff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Crazy price increase
We have been doing home renovations for almost two years now and swear by the door packs.... UNTIL today. When we started two years ago the prices were regularly $16.97. Then prices went up and we were ok with the increase because it was nominal. Less than two months ago we paid $17.97 for a pack. Suddenly I went today and the price jumped 30% to $22.97 at our local store. That's outrageous! Not to mention since the packs are pre-bundled you don't know until you get home the quality of all pieces. You'll find they hide some hacked up pieces in the middle and you can't exchange one or a couple of pieces, you have to bring the entire bundle back. They wouldn't allow me to open a bundle at the store to inspect prior to purchase. Not impressed with HD lately- they are losing their customer service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thor Real wood. Way better than the MDF trim at the store.
This product is made of real wood. Not the MDF junk that the store carries. Unfortunately, the you can only get this item via website purchase. No big deal since it has free shipping and there was no time frame to install. I gave the product 4 stars instead of 5 due to the quality control of the product. I ordered 5 pro packs to fit 5 doors. Each pack has one of the trims cracked/split about 6 inches from the end and nearly all had really bad paint/primer problems. That is, there were paint drops, rough areas, dented, bad brush marks, etc. My 3 year old could have done better with his finger paints! However, a little pre-sanding and using the cracked trim for the headers (bad end cut off), all worked out. It just required a little extra time due to the poor quality control from the manufacturer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Good product, nice price
It's real wood and it's primed. Each pack is enough to complete one doorway on both sides. I have had some pieces that were a little rough around the edges so now I hand pick the best packs at the store. Since all the nail heads have to be sunk and caulked and the joints filled a nick here or there is no big deal to fill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yooper Not bad for the price
Good sturdy casing but the finish was quite poor. I did expect that though considering the cost.
