(1) re: pads snapping off: YOU HAVE TO SNAP THEM ON REALLY HARD. Once snapped on, it's difficult to get them off. With use, I don't even see how it's possible to have the pad snap off during use.
(2) re: edging: admittedly, I did edge the ceiling (because I didn't use a ladder tall enough to see up close to the pad. Hence, the four stars - not five. However, I did not tape the other edges of the room (which included baseboards, a door frame, and intricate window frame. I WAS CAREFUL NOT TO GET TOO MUCH PAINT ON THE PADS, and NOT TO GOOP THE PAINT ON THE EXPOSED EDGES. By watching these two things, I was able to nicely edge everything, and not get dripping or bleeding.
(3) re: the floor: admittedly, I did get a spot of paint on the floor. This was by my error, though, and nothing to do with the system.
(4) re: the time it saves: I would agree that it does save a lot of time - mostly in the area of prep. I didn't tape, put sheets down, or have to mess around with multiple rollers or anything. I took my time around edges (which I would do with a roller or brush anyway), but the large face areas of the walls were done much quicker - and more evenly.
I did not use the ceiling pole, so I can't comment on using the ceiling attachment function, but it seems you need to have a pole that fits the unit very well.Read more ›
I started using the small pad but that was not helping at all for the huge walls I was doing so I switched to the large pad with a pole. What a piece of junk! The piece you screw your pole into spins like crazy and after only a few minutes of use, the whole pole attachment popped off. I was so frustrated and I had only completed 3/4 of a wall! After yelling and fussing I sat down to figure out what to do next since the pad and what not worked well, I just had no way of holding onto the pad to get any paint on the wall. I stared at the big triangle thing and thought "I must be missing something that attaches to this thing". Sure enough... the smaller pad holder fits onto the back of the large pad & my life was so much better! I love this thing! I got my large living room, dining room, hall combo space done so fast & it actually looks great! I am not telling my husband that I did it myself until after he looks at it and comments on how good of a job the contractor did. I can't wait!!

My sister and I used this system to paint several rooms and her garage when she moved into her new house years ago. It worked well but it has a learning curve. Once you learn its limitations, how to load it and work it, you will be happier.
♦Prep: When you get the system, you must clean it. Vacuum it aggressively and well. There are zillions of hairs/fuzzies loose on the pads. Then wash the pads well under running water. If you watch the video, wait til the end to see the fuzzies. You do not want these stuck in your wet paint.
♦Pads: The pads are the weakest point of the system. Aside from the fuzzies, they are on the flimsy side and do not want to fit under the tabs well. It is also difficult at times to determine if they are actually under the tabs. After using them a while, the plastic is not as firm and they do not want to snap snuggly into place. The tip also tends to bend/stick out some. They do hold paint well, but you don't want them to hold paint. With this system, you want to use as little paint as possible on the pads or it will drip and make a big mess. Keep a rag to wipe the edges often.
♦Handles: The handles are plastic. I know not to attempt using an extension, so even though the big pad has one, I just ignore it. It does not work and that is something I accept. The little handle snaps into the bigger handle.
♦Tray: Best part of the system. Well built, easy to use, nice big spreader, easy to clean. You can hold the side to keep it from rolling to help get excess paint off the sponge pads.
Remember, clean it really, really well. Do not overload the pads, use minimal paint. Wipe often to avoid runs. Don't even bother with the extension. Clean well after using.
Hope the video gives you a better idea of what it looks like.
