Rated 3 out of 5 by Sputnikdinsdale III Not for me
I had used pads many years ago and wasn't over keen but thought I would try again. I was painting a room with furniture in it so pads are less likely to spatter.
I found the large pad absorbed too much paint and was difficult to spread without dripping. I managed OK in the end but never managed to paint up to edges without getting paint everywhere, either with the large or small pads. Once finished it took ages to wash out due to the sheer amount of paint they absorbed. After painting one coat over half the room I reverted to brushes which were much better. Slower than a roller but not really much slower than these pads as the brushes washed out quicker and I spent less time trying not to drip everywhere due to the excessive absorbency.
Nothing really wrong with the idea, but having given pads a second chance I have now decided they aren't for me.

The pad system is a good idea and less messy than a roller. The handle to pad holder is good and can be set in several positions or left free to move. This pad would of been better if the paint pads were fitted using the velcro system they use on small sanders. The large pad kept falling off. This may be due to the pad moving in the holding area and only being held in place by clips, which are too small. In the end I donned some disposable gloves and held the pad by hand to get the first coat done. I will return this for the one I was going to buy in the first place (Doh). This maybe ok if using paint with the consistency of water and on a plastered wall, not on lining paper. Didn't get to use the other pads, so can't comment on those.

Didn't enjoy using this. Pad kept falling off. Corner device useless.

Great product, I found it easier to use than brushes & rollers.Much easier to paint around light switches, wall edges etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by handyman a bit lacking
This product would have been good value if there was a mid size pad included. The small pads are small and for use in particular areas. However, the large pad is just too large and generally unwieldy. The pack should include a pad 2/3 the size of the large pad.

This product was terrible. I could not get the handle to stay on any of the paint pads so could not use it all. Ac omplete waste of money.

Main pad was ok to use but others are not reusable as have to be stuck on (could not tell until opened). Would expect better from such a good name.
