Wondering when they were going to start giving these away.oO

If think this is the biggest clue yet that even Dulux now believe this was always going to be a gimmick doomed to failure...

When i decorated my house i looked into getting one of these as they were selling on Ebay for only a few quid, but after researching reviews and reading the negative feedback i decided against it. Generally the biggest criticisms were the difficulty involved in cleaning it and it not working properly after a few uses.

the big ones are brilliant, I have used one loads of times, not sure about these compact one

B&Q ran this a while ago.

I got one.

I'd give mine away free!

its not too bad, i wouldnt pay for it but since its free I'd recommend. Cleaning is a pain... so I would just get rid off it after use

So if i give you my address you will send to me free of charge Yes????

they are great and very fast large living room done in less than 3 hours normal painting would take me a day:p

I bought one for a similar price roughly a year ago. Complete PITA after the first use and got thrown out shortly after.

I doubt it since you had to resort to using four question marks, if you asked for anything like that on Freecycle or Freegle the mods would tell you where to go. I suggest he give it away to some one more deserving on Freegle in his local area.

not used one but i wouldnt pay too much attention to comments....i bet alot are because they are lousy at diy....i mean some people cant use drills, or build flat pack stuff or put up fencing....all dead easy if you have the time

Does the paint pod paint differ from normal paint in any way? Need to do a small job, so wouldn't use this, but might as well pick on up if they are free.

Nice ideal but paint is too expensive

fishmaster, what does using 4 question marks mean please? I am sure our friend diidnt mean it offemsive

its little bit thiner, ypu can buy other brand paint just need to dilute with water

Had one of these - used it twice then took it to the skip - paint was really thin and pod itself clogged up to a point where it wasn't usable even though I used the cleaning cycle twice

all these comments are just what i thought about the paint pod.
i dont own one and never will

Bevjab If i thought that using 4 was offensive i would not of done it, so im lost like you.

I'm not sure exactly what it means - but at a guess I'd say it suggested quite obviously that you were taking the **** and hence made you look a bit juvenile and petty

It seemed impolite how you asked, it also didn't seem sincere. Anyway I'm sorry I caused offence.

the picture in the first post is taken from the website - but says its an instore offer only

I can confirm that this deal is on as long as that store has stock with a maximum of two PaintPod machines per transaction.

I work weekends at Homebase while at uni, and they've been flying out the door today. We got a whole pallet load during the week and were down to our last 12 (Carlisle Store).

We had one of these with the deal B&Q were doing.. we bought a tester pot and the pod was still free, might be worth a try rather than getting 5litres.

This offer is definitely on instore as I saw loads today, generating no interest whatsoever. I am put off by the extortionate cost of the paint units though, which never seem to be on offer. Even if the gear is free, painting one room will be costly. I might be tempted if I thought you could use other paint with them, but not sure if they work as well with ordinary emulsion. Also, if pod paint is thinner than usual emulsion, surely you actually need more paint to do one room?
