Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time and money. After 4 coats, the coverage is uneven and streaked. Going back to Dutch Boy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't stop bleed through. After following the instructions on painting new drywall, twice, I still had paint bleed through. I bought the paint at Home Depot and they wouldn't take the paint back even though the Limited Warrant instructs you to return the product to the store of purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good primer This primer is a good value for the money. Used on new drywall and went on smooth and sealed the surface. The topcoat is on and looks nice!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Streaked Ceiling I bought this product at Walmart, I think this was my first mistake. I used a high quality 1/2" nap roller. The ceiling took over two gallons for a 400 sq. ft. ceiling for living room/dining area. There were streaked marks on the ceiling. I did a second coat the next day, the ceiling was more streaked with the second coat. The paint was drying faster than I could put it on for the hallway. I was so disappointed. I used Glidden paint to do my ceilings years ago, and had no problems and no streaks, the quality of paint just doesn't seem to be there as before. Now, I have to look for a different brand and do the ceiling over for the third time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't use if you are doing something fancy We've used this stuff in the majority of our house (aside from the rooms that needed some serious work on the walls). I wanted to do something different and add a design to one wall in our guest bedroom. I decided to do a zigzag design using painters tape. Having much of this stuff left over I primed twice with it, let dry for a few days, put some semigloss paint over the 2 coats of primer and went to work taping and painting. WARNING! if you plan on putting painters tape over this primer or even over paint that is over this primer it literally will peel off the wall when you you take the tape off. HUGE chunks of paint came off with the tape. The point of primer is to help the new coat of paint stick to the wall. I wish I could post pictures. As I peeled the tape off the wall underneath basically looked like I'd never even put primer on at all. This is a very cheap option. It doesn't cover very well if you need to cover dark paint or problem areas. You WILL have to use 2+ coats to actually cover anything. I don't recommend unless you just want cheap results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bang for the Buck Applied a relatively thick coat to the interior drywall of a 24' x 24' new construction garage. One 5-gallon bucket easily covered the walls and ceiling. A second coat will be required, but it will certainly go quicker and finish nicely based on what I'm seeing with the first coat. Great product.
