I never used it, until yesterday (8/26/2012). I had a small wall to finish painting and I didn't want to use the roller to finish it. So I watched the dvd it comes with and read the instruction manual. When I removed the hose out of the box and attached the one end to the machine, the hose came out of the gasket. I tried to thread it back it, and it appeared to be okay.
But when I started to use the machine, after five minutes, the "compressor" got very very hot, and thus, so did the hose since it was hot air blowing through it. Seriously hot air. Then the hose came out of the gasket again. So I twisted it back in, and secured it to the gasket with tape.
I began my wall again, and behold, the hose came apart from the gasket attached to the paint spray gun. [continued below]....
It did paint, so long as all the hoses stayed on. But, if I had that compressor hanging off of me, I am afraid I would have been burned. It seriously gets very very hot. I wouldn't run it more than five minutes at a time if I ever use it again, which I highly doubt.
Also, the power cord is so very short, that you need an extension cord if you are going to reach anywhere higher than two feet off the ground and one foot from my paint area. I didn't use an extension cord, but you will need one. The hose itself is way too short to have a decent reach if you chose not to hang that device off your body. I had a step ladder so I didn't have to hold it. When you shut it off, the switch is also very hot.
I do feel ripped off due to the above reasons. I would highly recommend this product be investigated for safety and quality. For the price I paid ($129.84 plus $19.95 shipping...$9.95 -3 containers, $4.95 for two cloth, tape and five strainers and tax of $12.66) Total of $187.30, it never should have done this within 20 minutes of using the product.
There is a 5 year replacement warranty should the product have a defect in materials or workmanship, they state they will repair or replace it without charge to you but a shipping and processing fee may apply. They give their Customer Service Number as 800-431-1902. I don't feel I should be paying anything to correct their defective product.
I seriously suggest staying away from this product and if need be, purchase a low end professional model instead.
