Spotted this on "shop well for less" last night - It seemed to fair pretty well when they compared it to the bigger brands, and its only £12.

I have used their paint before and found it to be ok
The cold votes are proving the point made on the Shop Well For Less programme. In a 'blind' test, the shopoholic who only buys branded products put Dulux paint LAST and Wilko faired very well, gave a better finish and cleaned easily.
i bought it before,the bathroom mould resistant one,and it was rubish,the walls were covered in mould within a week. bought the dulux one afterwards and had no problems whatsoever. better spend a few quid more first time than trying to save up and then ending up spending twice more.

What they failed to show on last nights programme is how it was applied and how much paint it used e.g. if one is thicker than another and you end up using more paint, then cost wise it will increase.

Finish alone is not sufficient.

They did state that 2 coats were applied to each panel but I do see your point

I wonder if they will manage to make the change after the programme. It's so easy to fall into the trap and I think you can be blind to the easy solution until it is pointed out to you.
Even store bought brand names are second rate. If you want quality, you are best going to somewhere like a Dulux Trade Centre. It'll cost more per litre, but you'll need only one coat and the finish will be far superior. Ask a professional decorator where he gets his paint from.
