Dap usually has very good spackling material and this is even better. The color changing ability is very handy. Wet it's pink; dry it's white. Otherwise it's basically the normal quick dry spackling that you can use to repair defects in your drywall using a spatula and some sand paper.

This spackling takes the guess work out of repair jobs. It still takes as long to dry but you don't have to keep going back to test it. Also, you don't have to worry about finger prints/markings from checking to see if it is dry. That saves time and extra applications. It goes on pink and when you notice it is white it is ready to sand and/or paint. It is a great product, I suggest it to anyone.

Size: 1/2-Pint
I've used this product before and it works okay but has some issues. The whole pink to white feature its kind of useless in my experience. Anyone that knows how to read a clock can get by without it.

The real issue I've found is its durability. I've used other spackles that simply hold up better. DryDex is fine for patching nail holes but don't use it where it'll see any kind of wear and tear. Around outside corners, around doorjambs, large patches, that kind of thing. It pops out over time or cracks. This is right next to other brands of spackle that doesn't seem to have any problems.

The final problem, and this is a small one, is that it browns over time. When I moved into this apartment the walls had numerous spackle patches from previous tenants that hadn't been painted over. Finding several nail holes and other defects that had been missed I repaired them with DryDex. After about a year they had started turning tan/brown. This is in a non-smoking home and none of the other patches experiences the same problem. Maybe the color changing ingredient is starting to oxidize? Whatever the cause, make sure you paint it after you apply it or it will look poorly.

First, know this is an awesome product, very easy to use. Second note that amazon is selling 1/2 a pint for just under $4 at the time of writing. Home depot will sell you a pint for ~$5, a quart for ~$7.50, and a gallon for ~$18. I bought this to verify it would do what I needed to do, next stop home depot to patch up the other holes. Make sure you seal the product well if you want it to not dry out (I suggest after you close the lid, wrap it in plastic wrap if you have a quart or larger size...

Patched a hole bigger than a golf ball and worked fine, has a matte finish when completely dry. Home Depot sells for half the price.

Love it! Scared me when I saw the pink but once it dries it looks great. I can not even find the nail holes anymore.

Size: 5.5-Ounce
I purchased a 5.5 ounce tube of DAP DryDex Spackling and Nail Hole Filler just about 5-6 years ago and I've still got it. I remember because that's when we started to paint the interior walls of our house and we used the DAP spackling to fill in dings and nail holes prior to painting. It was real easy to use and cannot be detected after the painting. Good product. I lost the top cap so now the stuff just dries out in the spigot and forms it's own cap. No problem. I just ram out the plug with a piece of stiff wire and I'm right back in business. Nowadays, I use it to fill nail and screw holes in the newly painted walls. I just make certain the hole is smooth around the edges, squeeze a little in and let it dry. All that shows after repair is a little white dot and those have been so minor I haven't even bothered to touch them up with paint. It's a very useful product.

I'll keep this short and straight to the point. This spackle sticks very well and fills most holes you need to cover. It spreads smoothly like a creamy peanut butter and the time indicator is very accurate. Logically, the center takes the longest to dry and that is usually the last part to turn from pink to white. This should be an industry standard and I will never go back to using any other brand.
