used it a good few times. its good for what it is BUT THAT PAINT IS EXPENSIVE.

I have one of these, and well worth paying extra for the paint, especially for ceilings! But you are very limited to colours available, good price for it though

Had one for 5 years. Great for ceilings and walls alike. Hardly any splashes and v easy to clean out. No need to keep filling roller trays every 5 mins as you just pop in the paint tin and it sucks it thru automatically as needed so what that the paint is a few quid more expansive theres no wastage and the lid pops back on to keep paint til,next time Bargain at this price. Oh. And don't forget to buy the handle extension. No need to use steps to do ceilings.

The machine will work fine as long as you are using the expensive formulated paint.
I tried using Dulux matt PBW print it in. The paint was too thick and even after thinning with a lot of water, it simply clogged the delivery tube if you put it down for an hour or so. We got so frustrated with it that we went back to good roller and brush. If you live anywhere in London, I would be happy to give away the machine. All you need is to buy a replacement tube.

I'm in North west London, I'd be happy to take it off your hands

I bought one of these from HB and they also had the pods on at £8 which were an absolute bargain, lots of colours and having used it I have to say that at 69 years of age it is the best item I have ever bought for painting. If you follow the instructions it works brilliantly it is also a dream to clean as the machine cleans it for you. The paint is expensive compared with the usual paint but I painted a room 15 x 12 feet and ceiling 2 coates which took me 2 hours to paint after allowing 4 hours dying time, I could also have done it without covering everything up, virtually no splashing, in these temperatures it dries quickly and is excellent quality paint. I don't think HB have any paint at the moment but its always worth keeping it in mind for the future, in the meantime I don't think painting a room that size is expensive even using the paint at full price, much cheaper than getting a decorator

I got my paint from The Range, they always seem to have offers on the 5l pods. Such as free feature wall paint or a free roller system when you buy a paintpod.

Jtf mega discount warehouse sell the paint pods for about 7.99 + vat if you have one near you.

Unfortunately the two stores near me only have a purple colour left now.

Great piece of kit...hot

I've got one and these are a faf, waste paint, just rubbish IMO

Got one of these and used it with standard paint, just need to water down abit,
put it in a separate container where the pod sits and tape up one of the switches
in side the pod lid so it works and thinks its got a pod installed.

The comments on here seem relatively positive. I thought this thing was generally vilified.

book this husband a holiday and I will get in decorating mode when I get back when its cooled down a bit =)

Hot deal tho......

We have had one of these since they came out. Initially we used the pods to do our decorating but the limited colour range meant we looked elsewhere. We purchased good quality paints such as Dulux and by using a totally unscientific drip test from the handle of a knife we thinned the paint down with water (about 10%) until it seemed the same consistency. It works perfectly every time and we have never had a problem with it. Keeping the empty pots and washing them out has meant I can fill them with paint of my choice. Still on the original roller, despite buying a spare when we purchased it, and it has decorated 12 rooms since we have had it. Cleaning is mostly easy, to get the tube and roller perfectly clean you do have to fiddle about a bit, but it pays dividends to invest the time in doing it. The little triangular brush is really handy for cutting in and the extension handle is really handy for ceilings and not over reaching on walls. I personally get on with it really well and it suits me so I will carry on using mine for as long as it holds on.

Hot deal from me.

This thing is a masterpiece at painting .... if you're rubbish at painting like me you won't regret it.
proud to say I didn't myself! ... me just hides the little fella were he can't be seen...lol
good bit of kit!

This system is amazing, I have 2 and would recommend to anyone. It really makes painting so easy and as OP stated it VERY expensive everywhere else! That said this shouldn't really have been posted considering this is NOT a new deal and has been on for atleast 6 months...

i got one of the compact systems of this for free with a tin of paint from wilkos a while ago. was great when it worked - got through a couple of rooms very easily. but was using my own mixture of paint in as an experiment, seems to work well - but then it just packed up entirely and didn't even try to pump.

not sure if the custom paint was at fault or the product? but not bad for this price!

Its a good price for the machine, heat added. We bought one for our flat and found it quicker than using a manual roller however we lost the time we saved cleaning it afterwards which was a massive pain. Also worth noting sometimes you end up paying an extra few quid on the PaintPod paint compared to 'regular' paint.

Never has a product caused me more frustration than this! I bought one to paint the interior of our flat when we moved in. My wife was going to paint the old fashioned way and I was going to use this to really cut back on time . . . WRONG.

To get the paint to go through the system they make it thinner, so if you are painting something that is a slightly different color than the original, you are going to use many coats. I was painting a wall white that was previously beige and it took 6 coats! I had to use the extender wand to get to the top of the wall, that broke in short order so I had to tape it up to use it. Then the actual machine broke while I was finishing the last coat and had to use the regular paint rollers . . . which seemed like a treat after messing with this for the weekend! My wife had finished every room in the flat before I had done this one!

I bought one of these and for me they worked a treat, the paint goes a long way too, have done my lounge walls and ceiling and best thing was no drips at all. Plus it's self cleaning, I recommend it, ace piece of kit. Don't be a cheapskate and just buy the proper paint as it's false economy and a faff.

Are these great or trash? Someone please resolve this long-running debate.

COLD. These things are absolute rubbish! Don't bother wasting your money. You'll be regretting it when you look at your walls after you've used one of these. Also the paint pods are a rip off.

Got ours free at Wilkinson too. Last year I think. You have to wonder if there is a reason they are so cheap now. Ours in in the garage - couldn't bring myself to fork out the ridiculous prices for the paint, especially when the colours are so limited.

If you put clingfilm in the paint tray you don't have the hassle of cleaning the tray, and if you wrap the roller in a plastic bag it will still be fine to use again the next day.

Best gauge as to how good this is is to count how many professional painters use it.

Avoid.

I disagree, I had no problems with mine at all, did a grand job of my lounge, very economical on the paint and very little effort. tip:- read the instructions.

Always one. Little dig about reading instructions. I'm a work in a trade so hav a lil idea how things work & what's good & what's not, so in MY opinion, and everyone else I've spoken to about the paint pod, it's a waste of money, it doesn't do a proper job, uses more paint than needed whilst also not covering as well as its watered down so it doesn't block the system up- but well done to you 'hero' for making an amazing job of your lounge, I bet it looks fantastic

I wouldn't say it was economical on the paint, I found it used more to get the desired finish.

My walls needed 3 coats, going from a very pale beige to white.
When I had run out of the PaintPod paint I tested on the last wall with Dulux normal matt emulsion and normal roller & tray and got the same finish with 2 coats = less paint, less work, and with normal emulsion being far cheaper than the 'special' PaintPod paint, cheaper also.

What I did like about the PaintPod was for a high stairwell it was ideal as you didn't have to get on/off ladder/platform to replenish a roller, BUT the downside was that with the amount of paint in the roller and the tube it was heavier than a normal roller & tray.

I was glad I got it free with a can of the 'special' Pod paint, as I would be miffed had I paid anything for it.

Cleaning for me was just the same as a normal roller & tray, the only part which self-cleans is the actual tube.

I did test normal Dulux brilliant white matt emulsion in it once the pod was empty, and found a 50/50 paint/water ratio worked fine, BUT with the heavier roller and hassle with mixing paint and water and same hassle with clean up, I found no benefit over a normal roller & tray, unless your doing a stairwell you will benefit slightly - (bear in mind that with a 50/50 ratio you may need double the number of coats so more work)

Same as most, mines is somewhere gathering dust in the shed after one use (2 rooms), am I likely to dust it off and use it again ? - no.

Thanks, it does look amazing, I'm assuming you saying 'I'm a work in a trade so have a lil' means 'I work in the trade so have a little' , forgive me, my trade uses English to communicate. I had no problems with it, I'm sorry you did, maybe my background (i.t.) is more forgiving of painting than yours. Will I use it again? Maybe to do the stairwell as raised by andynicol above. I'm not a hero, just a regular guy...
