Pros: Low odor

Cons: Let's see...poor coating quality, poor masking release, mediocre swatch matching.

My wife picked this paint out at Home Depot due to the claim of low odor. Stuff costs about $40.00 per gallon vs about $23.00 for Behr Premium Plus. As a professional painter, I am always a bit skeptical of "green claims" that a produc is better just because it's "green." I was right about this paint.

No Smell

Pros: no stink,

Cons: cost

We painted the wainscoting that I just installed with this paint. We used white semi-gloss. It looks great. It was nice to be able to paint and not have the entire house stinking.
