When I want to get a painting job done in a minimal amount of time, (...and not break the bank) I choose Behr (when it's on sale!) Yes, it's still kinda costly, but notice I didn't go for the higher-priced Behr paint.) It has the opacity and glide I like in a "1-coat" paint. (I say "1-coat" because it depends upon the surface you are covering as to whether the paint will truly use only one coat. If painting over a glossy finish, or wallpaper, or gong from vibrant or dark to light, one coat is not really feasible. That being said, if covering flat light-colored painted walls, it works really well. I appreciate the low-odor as well...but saying this is "ZERO VOC" is, IMHO, is incorrect. It definitely does have an odor to it, but it's pretty tolerable (with proper ventilation, such as a couple of fans with open windows), and does dry pretty quickly. As it dries, the odor dissipates. Did 3 rooms (different paint for a white trim on all) and the results were great. Ordered 4 gallons, and completed all using 4 gallons. One of the rooms I had only 1 wall to cover, but since it was highly textured, it took 2-3 coats. THAT wall took nearly all of one gallon. I'm delighted that I got all 3 rooms completed & didn't have to buy more paint!
