Ugh - I have tried the non wide shot model and I can only warn of splatter and having to then use a brush to get a nice finished coat. Agree with all of the other posters on having to thin the paint too much to avoid splatter and then you have really wet paint and dripping.

These will not work for deck sealers. The viscosity of the sealant is so high that they won't pump properly through these - even regular wall paint must be thinned using water to allow it to work.
For deck stain they'll work in most cases as the stain is usually pretty thin.
Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!

Even then, as someone else mentioned it splatters not sprays. Do NOT attempt, for instance, to paint your front door or doors inside. Walls do not come out smooth. Honestly I tried it once and it has sat in the box for 4 years sinc, cuz it's pretty much useless to me.
I recommend you keep your money and rent something better.
I have a similar model and did use it to stain/seal my 6 foot cedar fence. Best money I ever spent! If I'd used a roller as some of you suggest, it would have taken days, instead only about an hour including cleanup! Then I went on vacation with the time saved! I would be hesitant to use it inside though..
