I've only used Paint Runner for ONE room so far.
The fully loaded roller was heavy and gave me arm ache. My brother joked that it would give me muscles. He did not find it heavy though.
The paint MUST be thinned, the instructions recommend a ratio of around 3/4 paint to 1/4 water. Coverage was poor. I ended up having to use sevaral coats fo thinned paint instead of just using TWO with standard rollers.
Good news is you don't need a ladder apart from doing ceiling corners. Also you don't… Read Full Review

To ensure best results while using the Paint Runner Roller you need to prime the roller before painting any surfaces.

I would recomend the Paint Runner Roller for big jobs where a consistant colour is to be used .
It can be frustrating to get the paint to flow in the first instance Diluting the paint with small amout of water speeds up the process .
The cleaning process is time consuming and would recomend that
you keep to the same colour for the whole room or have two rollers with two different paint colours to interchange… Read Full Review
