After seeing ratings on CR and noting that Home Depot's Glidden was a Best Buy, I decided to give it a try. I didn't look at user's review, that might have scared me off. However, everything turned out really good. I purchased a 5 gallon bucket of Sahara Gold color of Glidden Interior Premium Satin (don't confuse it with the one sold at Walmart) and painted the entire downstairs area with it. The color I was covering was off white slightly gray, so I didn't have to worry too much about second coats and underlying color seeping through.<br />I did, however, purchased premium rollers and I believe they make a world of a difference how the whole surface comes out. <br />This paint does not contain primer, so note that when you paint your virgin walls. Also, lay a thin coat, so that it won't peel off.<br />I had one of my bedrooms painted with Valspar at about the same time, and I really see no discernible difference between them in terms of quality of the paint. May be the top brand has something superior, but this one was good enough for my house.
