Good for that price!

hot!!

Good price for one hit use and throw away items.

brilliant deal

Good Deal that Airey

Good job
Hot

Bargain! Even just for the tray itself! I just paid £1.78 for 1 tray from B&Q! x

I love getting rollers for that price, means you never have to wash the damn things just buy a new one!

Good deal for the price, good if you are doing up your buy to let property.
However, I have just decorated my entire house (just bought my new gaff) and it really does pay to get better branded decorating tools.
I ended up using harris brushes and b and q "finest" (or whatever it is) rollers. With the brushes the more expensive ones didn't loose bristles whilst glossing (highly irritating) and the rollers didn't loose "hairs" in the paint giving a much better finish

bargain.

not in my local store... £4.79 and only 1 roller

Good for the rollers and tray, The brushes will be rubbish and cause more harm than good, picking out bristles etc. The sleeves themselves are usually £1 each (or £2 if go to focus/b+q)
My tip is to use the rollers and if you are adding a 2nd coat the next day then pop them in a plastic bag overnight and just start rollering again the next day!

even at full price these are cheap

I don't want to decorate my Tesco.

need one of these

Great if you don't mind loads of roller fluff and detached bristles in your paintwork. (Cheapo roller heads are just as bad as cheap brushes in my experience)

I renovated my entire flat last summer and use the jumbo sized harris rollers and a pole. Would never go back to these crappy things now. Got through the painting in a fraction of the time it normally takes me .... the jumbo rollers were especially good on ceilings!

yawn.................

that is incredibly cheap, like someone else said though it's basically like buying disposables but for £1.25 that isn't such a bad thing

hothothot!

worth it just for the masking tape!!!!! but as someone already sais, just use the roller and dispose after use. The brushes are worthless but good for a bbq when you marinade on the bbq.... got a few months to enjoy that but wishful thinking.

Stop winging where can you get all that stuff for £1.25 even if half of it crap still good deal your a bit of a prat mate

Looked for this in Tesco Extra Burnley but couldn't see any signs of it unfortunately.

false economy.
Bristles fall out and the tape is terrible.
But if you arent bothered about the finish its hothothot

Have you actually used this specific set? Do you know the bristles fall out and the tape is "terrible" from personal expirience? If you have fair enough.

I dont think you can comment on the quality based on your assumption that cheap is crap.

Reminds me of the cheap HDMI cable arguments....

come and decorate the one i work in then, we have no windows

Even if its pound shop quality its 5/6 quids worth. Cheap as chips.

My 14 year old daughter bought me this......for Christmas!!..she got an X-Box

Yes I have tried these. And they are as I described. If you buy this and think otherwise please let me know.
I am all for getting a good deal on good quality stuff.

The kit is still usable. I wouldn't persnally use the rollers if the loose their pile, but the tray , roller, tape and plastic dust sheet would still be useable. The transparent plastic dust sheet woulfd be ideal for covering furniture that was collected in the center of the room, so you can see and where not to put your trays and stuff full of paint. The brushes , rapped to remove the loose( if any bristles would be Ok foe emulsion cutting in and dusting of sanded woodwork. You can always use masking tape in one situation or another if its not good enough for window masking. Overall handy at the price, but for the finish i would recomend buying good quality as it makes the job easier and quicker with a better finish. Anyway that my experience as a diyer.

I think i mut be turning into mickey from shameless

When I saw thought great as this I instantly thought it wouold be a delicate little fairy cake decorating kit

Ok, I'm a Painter and decorator and the rollers are great for individual jobs. I've rarely had any fluff come off these cheap rollers and always get a good job done. Yes you can get a job done quicker with the big expensive rollers but when you're using 10 different colours a week these are ideal as you can just use them and throw them away. (although I don't, I actually use them, bag them and then once a month wash them) Imagine having to clean out the big rollers all the time, especially when you're only painting a small room.
I have a big roller constantly white for the ceiling which I always keep bagged! It would probably take me longer to wash out the big roller than it would to paint a room using one of these!!!
As for the brushes, I can't stress enough that they will be rubbish!!! Sorry, these are the brushes that you can get from poundland for a bag of 10. Way too thin to cut in with. You're better off spending £5 on a good 2 or 2.5 inch brush and it will last you forever if you clean it!

Maybe you should actually read what I wrote.

Yes, you get a load of stuff but you're a fool if you use the rollers or brushes ... because they're rubbish and will do EXACTLY what I described. THEY are what I commented on, not the cheapness or contents of the rest of it.

I never commented on the rest of the stuff in there. Fine, for the rest of it (although I expect the scraper is probably about as good as a cardboard one) but throw away the roller head and brushes if you want a decent finish .... and most others on this thread would appear to agree with me.

You want a good finish? Use quality kit.

Idiot.

As for comapring a paintbrush or a roller to an HDMI cable? ....... facepalm .....

These rollers are fine, no one is a fool for using them! You just think your opinion is better than anyone elses! I agree the brushes are rubbish but I'm not going to call someone a fool or an idiot for using them! I've been using thse types of rollers for years and they are great for different rooms. Especially these days where most people want one wall a different colour. I can see you now washing out your expensive roller sleeve after doing 9 square meters on one wall, letting half a litre go down the sink!

Nor did I initially. That was probably a knee-jerk reaction to the guy calling me a prat .... it was aimed more at him than anything else.

I've tried loads of cheap rollers. Have done up several houses. The current flat was a back to bare walls rennovation. It was also the first time I tried the jumbo rollers and I honestly couldn't believe the difference. You get through the work so much faster it's incredible. But I guess you know that as you're a decorater and it was my plasterer (also a decorator) who put me onto them in the first place.

But, every cheap roller head I've ever tried has been garbage. Yet to find a "value" one that didn't deposit fluff as well as paint. Hence my opinion on them ....

(Oh, and I treat ALL roller heads as disposable .... lol .... I cannot STAND washing them out. And in the case of this flat, for most of the time I was decorating it I didn't have a sink to wash them in anyway as the kitchen and bathroom had both been ripped out completely)

Was it all the same colour, those big rollers are quite expensive, even the sleeves are about 7 quid! I have one I use for white matt which hasn't been washed for 3 years now! I do admit I have sometimes had bits come off but that was on some really cheapo poundland jobbies! The worst problem for rollering is if you are rollering a wall that is breaking up, IE the plaster is coming off onto your roller, Then it's a total no go! Even washing it doesn't get it out!

Tesco - HAYES YEADING EXTRA, had non on the shelfs, there was a tray and a roller for £3.98
