SMART Edge Roller
Saves time and headaches
Cutting-in has always been a nightmare for me. I just don't have the patience to do it right and unfortunately my ceiling has suffered as I've got a few marks on my popcorn ceiling as a reminder that I suck at painting.
With this new roller I no longer dread painting around doors or windows and I can breathe easier cutting into corners in ceilings.
It was super easy to use and cleaning wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
If your painting skills are as bad as mine then this will be a lifesaver.

Product works great small learning curve
I just repainted my 2000 sq ft house interior and many rooms had several colors on the walls. I am not sure what happened to the few who gave this product a low rating maybe they were not using it correctly. The angle you adjust the trim brushes and the angle you run it against the ceiling and where you hold it on the long handle all affects the results. After a small learning curve I painted all the rooms around ceilings, window trim, base trim without any tape!! I did have to brush my corners but with all the cleanup and paint color changing I saved a amazing amount of time. The edging takes up all the time and this product knocked it out of the park. Cleaning time was not bad , we just live in a
instant results world and forget the saved time on painting.

Good but I had problem with gap between trim and roller
It did work well but I had a problem getting it close enough without leaving a gap. Will try it again with the useful hints about keeping the brushes wet with the paint. The only thing I didn't like is the clean up. When cleaning I cannot find the piston seal (#13 in parts list). I hope I can find a replacement part. Have searched the whole area where I was cleaning and it is gone! It didn't go down the drain, have a mesh trap over it. Anyone know if they sell replacement seals? If not, will have to throw it out!

I loved it. I didn't have to tape anything. The only thing I think were downfalls is sometimes the roller would have a tendency to slide instead of roll. The other thing is corners are impossible to get and last but not least it was time consuming trying to figure out sometimes which way to adjust the roller for different angles. It would be great if it came with a corner peice for the walls by the ceilings or corners in general. I would even like to see if you could purchase it sepearate. Besides that I painted 3 walls from start to finish with clean up and the way it was before starting about 4 hours. Thank you Wagner!!! Great product!!!!

Waste of money
I was very hopeful that the smart edge roller would perform as advertised. It did not. The quality of the roller material was poor; and there was a gap in the paint coverage at the very edge of the roller. It did not apply the paint well, and I had to go back over it but after I got enough paint coverage, there was a gap that matched the edge of the roller. I tried everyone; read the instructions and gave up. I would have loved a substitute for taping and cutting but this is definitely not it. Bought this at my local Sherwin Williams store so I thought it might be a good product but sadly, I wasted $20; what I got was a lot of aggravation.

.I am quite impressed by this product.
I had the opportunity to review Wagner TurboRoll and SMART Edge Roller.I love to paint.I am a Artist and love to do Wall Murals.I used these products in my little girl's bedroom and was saying to myself "Were was Wagner TurboRoll and SMART Edge Roller all my life?
Let me just say it made painting her walls so easy and when it says 7 x 10 on one fill,they are not kidding. I used a little bit of paint out of the can.I only filled the paint roller once for a wall in a half and still had paint left and emptied the leftover paint in the can.It covers the wall with paint very well.I am quite impressed by Wagner and I will definitely use their products in the future.
I would highly recommend Wagner TurboRoll and SMART Edge Roller for anyone painting products.
I give 5 Stars out of 5 Stars and 2 Thumbs Up!

Definitely makes it easier!
Finally something quicker and easier to use for trimming! I'm not a great painter and trimming is the worst - this tool made it so much simpler - I did our main bathroom and for once I didn't get paint on everything! I did still taped my trim and tub because I didnt really know what to expect after i was done I realized I really didnt need to. Easy to fill with paint and not a lot of mess - of couse clean up took longer just because there are more pieces to clean than an angle brush. Will use again for my next project for sure! Overall great and easy product to use.

I kept wiping the yellow guard in the edge just to make sure I didn't sloppily get paint anywhere it shouldnt be. Overall great and easy product to use.
