Buy it. If you don’t have a spray gun but have been thinking about it, buy it. If you want to spray, but the cost is too high on those fancy/expensive systems, buy it. If every project needs to have a perfect, auto paint gloss finish, no matter how long it takes, then this is not the product for you.
I have had mine for over a year now and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. Sure, I could have spent more to get a finer mist, or see through reservoir, or more bells and whistles, but this thing does it’s job without complaint. I don’t like the center of balance on the handle when loaded with paint, it is uncomfortable to hold after a while. It is louder then I like. But I don’t know if spending more money would fix either one of those problems enough to count. Bottom line is a shop sprayer is there to save you time. Don’t confuse these with an airbursh. You are not going to get those kinds of results. This is a substitute for brushes and rollers. That said, this product saves me time, I am pleased with the results, and I don’t know if any cheaper product could make me as satisfied or a more expensive product do that much of a better job to be worth it. When I put a fine finish on a frame this is not the tool. For just about everything else, this is what I use.
Just remember to thin your paint or finish correctly and turn down the volume until you get the spray you want. Just because it is a sprayer does not mean you can do everything in one, 10 second coat. It still takes time, just not nearly as much as a brush or roller.
Why 4 stars and not 5? Because I reserve 5 stars for that which is perfect in every way. This is not perfect in every way, but I highly recommend it.
