I was on the lookout for a reliable and affordable paint sprayer for my household. A sprayer that is easy to use, compact, and light. It would help me save money paid to the repair person for spraying odd jobs. Although I saw several models available, I decided to try the HomeRight Finish Max, as I found many positive reviews about in on paint sprayer reviews blogs and forums. This tool scored more brownie points than other similar products in price, functionality, and design.
After receiving the gadget I decided to put it through it paces and check how it fares. The first thing that I noticed on pulling the trigger was the sound of the unit, which was more like that of a vacuum cleaner. On going through the user’s manual, I found that this was a high volume low pressure (HVLP) unit. For the uninitiated, such units employ a high volume of air at a low pressure to push the material through the nozzle. The device is simple to use and even those who have never used a sprayer before will be able to operate this unit after tinkering with it for some time. This unit is ideal for “do it yourself” enthusiasts plus painters, professional carpenters, etc.
