These look great. My only concern is that you have to buy the special paint for it, and it's quite expensive (about £30 for 5L on first look).

total waste of money, just a gimmick, paint pods are expensive for it.

Stick to a normal roller.

You could do 2 rooms with a 5L tub and no need to buy brushes, rollers, trays etc and even no dustsheets if you're brave. :thumbsup:

I can say that because i can pay £3 for a roller, have a much bigger selection of colours to put on my walls, not having to stick to one brand and pay a lot less for the paint, easy :thumbsup:

What about cutting in at the ceiling and skirting? i take it this still has to be done with a brush.
Can the pods be opened to get to the paint to do the cutting in?

It comes with its own brush for edging and it happens to be the best brush i've ever used, and the roller comes off so that you can decant paint into a tub (which also comes with the pod). I have used this machine to do my whole house from top to bottom including ceilings, although its not as easy as it shows on the adverts on tv, it is more paint efficient and less messy.
Mine did start to fall apart when i had just 1 room left to do, the handle fell apart, but b and q just swapped it for a brandf new one.

Thanks,
I'm very tempted to get one now.
#10
I work for B&Q and have heard nothing but good things about these paint pods, i asked the question about using different paint in the pod and they said they have tried it and it works a dream, but its upto the indervidual if they do that. U need to but the paint pod paint at least once so you have the carton to use for other paint, just keep washing it out. Im gonna get mine 2moz.
#11
it's never more than £50 cost me £30 a few months back when it first came out, bought for a xmas pressies for a man that has everything
#12
i want one for when i paint daughters room and my kitchen but need to wait until payday and the offer ends tuesday :(
#13
A roller and a pole works everytime (just roll it out properly in the tray) paint too expensive that fits the pod.Gimmick imo

bought one of these a couple of months ago, they were £29.99 at B&Q before christmas. It works well but the paint is a rip off, i'm sure you could use normal emulsion in the empty pod, but of course, dulux say that it will invalidate the warranty!

That said if the unit is only the price of a 5litre pod of paint, then its a risk worth taking!
#16
Surely if the unit does a good job of cleaning itself then Dulux would never know that you had used cheaper paint.
I am tempted to buy on of these as i'm moving into a new house this week so have a lot f painting to do.
Has anybody actually used one of these by filling up the empty paint pod?

My experience so far is good. The pods are a couple of quid more than the equivalent amount of Dulx ordinary paint. However the pod is efficient with the use of paint as we did 2 coats on my daughters room and used about 3 to 3.5 litres of paint and I worked out her wall area as 32m2 x 2 = 64 m2. After cutting in it took 35 minutes for the second coat. The brush that comes with it is good and you can easily decant from a pod into the little pot to cut in.There is an extending handle wich costs an extra tenner and that means no steps or chairs to stand on. You can use any ordinary paint in a pod - just dilute it slightly. I do a drip test with paint pod paint and my own mix to see if they are similar. Not scientific - but as good as. So far we have put 4 full pods through and 1 home mix and it has been superb. However - do not believe all you read about self cleaning. We do one self clean routine, then clean the roller and roller casing and then a second self clean routine. The roller is as good as the first day. The paint has a good even finish and takes about 10 minutes to get the hang of it. We worked out the best way is to hold it the button and cover about 1 m2 roughly and then let go of the button and even the area out. Our 12 & 13 year old children both did the first coats on ther rooms and found it easy to use.

Each pump assembly does about 8 pods before you need to change it, We reckon it will last longer if cleaned properly. A replacement roller is a tenner and a replacement pump is about £15 I think.

Ther are a couple of clever little touches - a carrying handle that locks down when not in use, a pair of supports to hold the pump tube when changing pods and an extending handle which makes painting high up easy.

PROS
Easy to use
Efficient use of paint
Quick
Easy to use own colours if you feel adventurous
Easy to carry around
Can get the kids to do the painting!

CONS
Cost of pods
Cleaning still a bit of a bore
Lack of colour choices
More outlay than ordinary rollers and trays

As a foot note I did hear that Dulux have been taken by surprise by the popularity and are trebling the colour range this year.

It may not suit some people - different strokes.But for those it does it is a real boon. Personally we like it and think it is well worth £34.

Hope this helps someone.

ive snipped most of your review didnt want to repeat it all again, but none the less, many thanks for the review, most helpfull. :thumbsup:

I wasn't planning on buying one of these, but I was in B&Q this morning, and they had a demonstration set up. I had a go, and it seemed pretty good so I thought I'd take the plunge. The paint is the same price anyway, so it's not a massive offset if it does turn out to be rubbish.
#21
I have one and it is great.

Seems that those that have it like it and those hating it on here have not.

To me it is worth the price as it has saved me time. My time is worth more than the price.
#22
I think I'm going to have to pop into B&Q tomorrow and invest in one, as I absolutely loathe painting! So anything to make it easier.....
#23
I have one and think its great. The only downside is how far the paint goes. Because it is delivered through a tube straight to the roller the paint is very thin so will need a few coats. We just used magnolia and it did require about 3 coats to get it just right. We did this in the bedroom and the pait pod was 3/4 used up. At £35.00 per paint pod they really need to bring the prices down. As although it is for 5L the paint doenst go as far as regular paint does so turns out to be quite expensive. The edging brush it comes with is very good. I would not have spent £70 on this but at this price it is a good deal and I would reccomend giving it a go. Also they need to come up with a wider range of colours and also add satin to theur range not just matt.

Have you tried diluting normal paint and putting it in an empty pod like Hatchorder done in a previous post (along with a great review)? As I certainly don't fancy paying £30 each time for a 5 litre pod as I already have quite a few cans of Dulux paint already. I just HATE painting!
#25
Well, just got back from B&Q. Bought the Paintpod for £34 (only had about 5 left) and got 2x pods of paint for £40. They were £29.99 each for 5 litres or buy 2 for £40 which makes them very good value.

No such thing as a lazy DIYer in my books - If I was that F@%*ing lazy I would pay someone else to do it for me. :thumbsup:

Your comment "I would never use such overpriced rubbish" is a bit like a kid saying they don't like eating something but have never tried it! :roll:

By all means contradict me me ONCE you have used it and you then think it is "overpriced rubbish", because then you have a valid point and I will respect you for it. ;-)
#27
Anyone know if these are still available as thinking of getting one this w/e??
banned#28
Got one of these a few months back. I'm hopeless at painting, always seem to drip everywhere, so I fell for the advert of no drips, easy cleaning, etc, and made my purchase.

Unfortunately I screwed up even before I got started. Peeled off the lid and dropped it on the carpet, instant mess. Typical same old story with DIY and me.

Anyway, managed to get through 4 walls in double quick time, completing another coat the following day. In order to make life easier when doing the ceiling, I purchased the extension handle. Was going fantastic until the last 0.5 square metre. Fatigue had set in and I pushed too hard on the handle, the brush snapped, bounced off ma heid, hit the wall and landed on the leather sofa. Another fine mess indeed.

Still, all in all, probably less mess than normal, but I would add that it's still a pain in the backside to clean. You need multiple rinses to make sure tubes are thoroughly clean, then you still have to clean the rollers.

Explained my mishap to B&Q (well I complained about the build quality) and they replaced immediately.



It's still

Well just rang my local store and they told me that it was £68 odd so I guess the offer has finished!
