Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well Had this for a few week and just have the first job that required edging , I was completely surprised at how well this product performed, not only giving a straight edge, but clean-up was just as easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart edge roller I used my Smart Edge roller yesterday, after getting used to it I found that it reduced cutting in my time significantly. With a little practice I was cutting in like a PRO. Thank you Wagner for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Edge Roller The Smart Edge Roller is a great tool to have when painting edges. No need to apply masking tape which saves a lot of time. The roller attached to the Wagner Sprayer that I had bought a year ago and I was finished. If you are doing a lot painting especially around doors and windows, this is the tool to have. Much better than the rollers that you get at the hardware stores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I love this roller, great for around doors. Easy to use. The paint dispensing tube could be a little larger. Rolls on with ease when using. Not too bulky. Very light weight. Smooth paint lines. I would not change anything except maybe make the paint tube a little larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMART Edge Roller The SMART Edge Roller worked remarkably well. It is easy to pump the paint into the roller cover. Much easier than having to push the piston like the old Paint Stick. And also unlike the old Paint Stick, the roller cover looks like it will not bleed paint out the end caps.Refill is a little messy, but the instructions worn about this. Cleanup with a garden hose was easy. This does a great job on cutting-in and should save time on a job that can be frustrating with a brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This speeds up your painting projects! This is like getting longer arms to paint trim edges. You don’t have to climb up and down your ladder to reload the roller as much. Getting a clean edge when painting against ceilings is easy. Storage while taking a break is easy when you use a plastic bag to store the Smart Edge Roller. Clean-up is a piece of cake!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Redesign needed...badly I bought one of these as a companion to the Smart Sidekick powered roller (THAT is a fantastic machine for real) but like a couple of the other reviews here the pump mechanism started leaking on the second use and only got worse. I threw mine out as well. The concept is great but the durability of the design and seal system is poor. Just for context...I am a manufacturing engineer with several patents to my name. The real question is why they haven’t made an edging tool for the Sidekick. That would be something I would buy as soon as it appeared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good tool This is a good tool. The hard part I am finding is you can not get parts for it and you can not get rollers with a longer nap for ruff walls . It b3orks O K not great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Until I Cleaned It... Seemed like the perfect fit for painting five and a half rooms of our home. First room tackled, cleaned the entire edge roller, and ended up throwing it away... Extremely disappointed, and huge waste of money. The roller spewed paint from any joint it could after I reassembled it from cleaning. I followed the instructions, relubed all pieces as indicated, big waste of time and money...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy edging!! Bought this two years ago and it was a great investment. Makes cutting in and edging super simple. The only complaint is that replacement parts are hard to find in my area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should have listened to the Poor reviews First Bad review I have written in 20 years Bought the product thinking I would have better luck then some of the other users. Product did not work out of the box. Paint never reached the paint roller when squeezing the trigger. complete waste of money. even purchased extra rollers as I thought I was going to get a lot done on the painting project. Stay away from this product Buyer beware

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would be a great item if parts could be purchased. Now it's a waste of money I purchased this for painting jobs I have at home. After painting one large room I noticed the small trim brushes were worn. I attempted to purchase these but found the whole unit had to be replaced. What a waste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better then the reviews say Like others, I was hesitant to make this purchase based on other reviews. My local hardware store had it on clearance for < $5 so i took the gamble. So GLAD I did. This tool is great. It gets very close to the edge and is easy to use. Yes its messy, and you know, BECAUSE ITS PAINT. I have never used a paint helping tool that was clean. Every painting job is messy unless your a pro. This tools is easy to use and saves so much time. I was painting my kitchen while my three little ones (6,3 and 2) where home. I needed to paint fast. This tool was a GREAT help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as it sounds I had seen a similar product on TV and wanted to give this one a try. Filling it with paint was easy enough but the roller couldn't even roll to keep up with me. Most of the time I was basically just rubbing it against the wall. The tiny brush that is meant to get into the corners did a very poor job. It took a while just for it to grab enough paint to do its job and would then flip in the wrong direction. The clean up looked very involved but, honestly, I'm not even going to bother. This was such a lame painting tool that it's going straight into the trash. I went back to my roller edgers before I had even finished one door frame. Too bad, it looked pretty awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest time saver ever! This worked great! We followed the directions and it saved so much time! It's not perfect but we had great luck with it. If you are a perfectionist this might not be for you, we got around 98 percent excellent results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst thing did not ever work the first time Bought it with great hopes.It started leaking from the joint between the paint tube and the thumb trigger the first time I filled it up and tried to use it. Not sure what would be wrong with a brand new product. returning it back to where I bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Starts out fine ends in misery Right out of the box this product worked great, after trying it the next day I found the paint not going all the way to the end of the roller so I changed the roller, it still didn't help and got worse over time it became very frustrating and expensive as the rollers are over $3 each, I hope their is a fix for it cause I like the convenience of not going to the paint tray every minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING! My late brother was a professional painter. He always cautioned against "gimmick" tools - stating that they never worked. Usually he was right. Not in this case. I took a chance and was overwhelmingly surprised This roller provides me with the ability to do a high quality job while saving me hours of work. My expectations have been exceeded by far. Well done!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real time saver I earn my living working in the apartment industry. This tool makes my job a lot easier. This tool allows me to cut in a 1200 square foot apartment in less than two hours, cutting my time by more than half. Clean up was a little frustrating the first time but after that it is a breeze. Thank you Wagner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I can't say enough good things about this product. Our contractor has not been the easiest to work with, so I decided I would just paint most of what we were going to pay him to myself. I couldn't have done it without this product. The one thing I hate most about painting is the tape! It has saved me about $1500 and I did the equivalent of 6 rooms in one day. It is a wonderful product, if used right. Like a previous reviewer said, DO NOT overload the roller & make sure to check and keep paint off the edger just as the instructions said. I looked at the video on YouTube before I even attempted this. I'm a visual learner, so this made using the Smart Edge Roller a breeze. Even my 15 year old was able to edge his entire room. It's not rocket science, folks! Clean up was easy with a hose outside. Again, thanks for this product!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money! I really wanted this Smart edge roller to work. It would have saved me so much time. After hours of trying to use it. I finally threw it in the trash & had to go over everything with a brush. Its messy, hard to fill, hard to operate & a waste of money. You will still have to go over your work with a brush. Save yourself the headache & just do your cutting in with a brush & tape.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from doesn't get close enough to the edge doesn't get close enough to the edge, still had to cut in with a brush, then roll over it with this. i could have used a dollar store mini roller to go over the brush strokes instead of dumping $20 on this

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good potential Product works great around windows and baseboards. Ceilings were a little tougher however did the job. The problem is that the brush sheds right from the get go.You can't buy a replacement. I used 1 time for one room and can't use it again till I find replacement brushes. Very disappointed I only got one use out of it with still plenty more painting to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work as advertised... We purchased this because we are renovating a home we just bought. I thought it would be a great time saver as I have previously owned several full size paint sticks from wagner and have always had great success. This was a TOTAL BOMB!!! Instantly paint all over the trim work. We have absolutely nothing good to say about this product except that it's a great concept, just doesn't follow through with functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Great timesaver! Great Product! I used the smart edge roller to paint my oversized 2 car garage, with 10 foot ceilings. .   On the first wall I forgot that I had this and had to do it using a traditional cut in method with a brush.   Very long and tedious and many little oops spots on the ceiling. On day 2 and wall #2 I remembered the Wagner smart edge roller. It was sooooo much easier! I am so glad I remembered. I used it for the remainder of the garage and was easily able to paint right up to the edge of the ceiling with no oops spots. Painting in the corners where two walls come together requires a quick use of a brush to get right in the tightest area but using the Wagner smart edge was a huge timesaver. I just wish I had known about the bigger roller I saw on the website I'd love to try that out. I would give this 5 stars. Regarding clean up, I didn´t use the clean up adapter attached to a garden hose or faucet but I wish I would have, it sounds like it would have been a lot easier.   There are so many little nooks and crannies that I´m sure the free flowing water water would work much better. It is amazing how much paint that thing can hold.   I advise the cleaning adapter and free flowing water. I will definitely try that next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smart edge...more like a dumb edge Bought both the trim and larger roller,larger roller is ok,was a little heavy for my wife when loaded with paint,it was ok for myself(husband),but still a bit of a pain with the splatter guard,I'll keep the large roller,but won't buy another one when this one reaches its end. The Smart Edge Roller...doesn't roll very well,the little trim brushes just don't get it all the way into the corners,just not worth the time or money,I literally just threw mine in the garbage.

I have paint seeping out from under the thumb trigger area every time I pump more into the roller. The roller works great but there's too much dripping out of the pump for me to use this anymore.

It may be as simple as lubricating the O-rings with some petroleum jelly. If that isn't the issue and the warranty is still in place, call us for help at 1-800-328-8251.
