      This is a pretty awesome invention. I've always disliked pouring paint into trays and then cleaning up the inevitable drips down the side of the paint can. It also saves quite a few trips back to the paint tray to load up on paint again. However, I'm used to throwing out the regular roller covers when I'm done painting, and I really didn't enjoy the clean up time required. For some reason, I can't seem to find any replacement roller covers that specifically state that they're for the 9" smart roller either. I haven't checked in-store though - only online. Assembly was easy, and the instructions are pretty detailed as well. The plunger O-rings came with petroleum jelly on them, so I didn't add any more even though the instructions said to. I should have added more, since the plunger couldn't make a tight enough seal to pull paint into the tube when I went to start painting. Once I took it back apart and added a generous amount of petroleum jelly, the plunger did just fine. I also had a little bit of trouble getting the "paint straw" down into the 2-gallon ceiling paint can. It would be easier if the straw was a little bit longer. (And no, you don't REALLY need to buy another can cover for paint cans other than a standard gallon. If you really want to get fancy, grab a piece of cardboard bigger than the can opening, cut an "x" in the center, and shove the straw into it.) The roller took a surprising amount of paint to get started weeping. I initially filled the tube halfway up, and quickly found out that was barely enough paint to make it start weeping out of the roller after I had depressed the ratcheting plunger all the way back down. I also found that the head didn't weep well close to the far edge. This is due to the last weep hole in the end of the roller head core being smaller than the rest (see picture). The holes get progressively larger in order to account for an even flow rate despite the pressure differential, but for some reason the last one is as small as the first one. I think the designer wanted to make sure the end of the roller didn't get a ton of paint on it, but they overcompensated in this case. If I had a drill press, I think I'd take a shot at drilling it out a tiny bit more. Once I was up and painting, it took almost no time at all to cover the twenty square feet of ceiling in my hallway that surrounded a water spot I wanted to cover up. I should have picked a bigger project to use this on though, since clean up took about 5 times as long as actually painting. I also found that it was a pretty good length for reaching the 8' ceiling in my hallway (I'm 5' 3"). However, I think I'd have to stand on my toes to reach the 9' ceiling in my living room, and you can just forget about me trying to use this on the 10' ceiling in the master bedroom without either a ladder or stilts. It's great when you've got a full tube of paint, but the handle gets shorter and shorter the more paint you use. When you're done painting, you can empty out *most* of the remaining paint into the can by pulling back on the plunger, then inserting the "paint straw" into the valve and pushing the plunger forward again. Then you'll need a 5-gallon bucket to fill with water and plunge the whole system a bunch of times. That part of cleanup wasn't too bad, but cleaning out the roller head assembly was pretty time consuming, and I ended up with paint ALL OVER my hands. I'm used to just throwing away the roller cover and spraying down the roller frame and being done with it. In summary, this roller is definitely worth it if you've got a big project to do (at least an entire room), and you don't mind the cleanup afterwards.
