4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Impressed - Good Coverage and Finish
I have been using these on some large artexed walls and have been impressed with how well the pads have applied the paint.
The depth of the grooves in the artex are quite substantial and the paint pads have done a very good job of reaching parts that were difficult to achieve with a roller. Most of the surfaces have only needed one coat, which has been a huge...

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely let down by product
I bought the paint pad pro with the idea that it was going to make painting my flat easier and quicker. Nothing could be further from the truth! The product doesn't stay together and constantly falls apart when painting which gets very infuriating, also it doesn't cover the edges easily and cleanly. I had to go back and paint round the edges with a brush. I also gave up...

This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)I bought the paint pad pro with the idea that it was going to make painting my flat easier and quicker. Nothing could be further from the truth! The product doesn't stay together and constantly falls apart when painting which gets very infuriating, also it doesn't cover the edges easily and cleanly. I had to go back and paint round the edges with a brush. I also gave up with the paint pad pro and went back to my good old roller.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)I bought one of these things. What a mistake to make !!!!! The pad sticks and drags on the ceiling. It does not cut into the corners well enough and the overall finish is awful. I went back to my faithful brush and roller. My advice is don't waste your money. And as for Tommy Walsh's endorsement... Let's just say I will not buy anything else that he promotes.
Just buy yourself a good paint brush and roller and do the job properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paint Pad pro,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)This product is a waste of money, It looked like a good idea to speed things up but... firstly the pads suck up the paint so you will need twice as much paint. The wheel applicator doesn't fit properly into the notches on the side of the paint dish and then the wheel slides into the bottom of the dish. The first few applications seems OK but then the paint runs down the side of the applicator. This doesn't reduce the pain of decorating use a roller its cheaper and just as good!

1.0 out of 5 stars a 99p shop product that could cost you your marriage!,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)Well where do i start???, firstly can i cay that this product could literally be a marriage ender, as the aggro, grief and mess that accompanied its use was beyond belief. It all started when my wife decided she wanted the spare bedroom painted ahead of our new arrival. I had put it off for ages, however i had booked a few days leave and my wife said she would get the paint and equipment in. Unbeknown to me at this time my wife who was on maternity leave, had come accross a certain shopping channel with a product called 'paint pad pro'. Endorsed by celeb builder Tommy Walsh (more on him later) , and decided to purchase this product under the misguidance that this would make decorating easy, even for a sausage fingured diyaphobe like me, oh how wrong she was. The first problem happened instantly, as it is made so cheaply that any pressure at all causes the thing to disassemble quicker than a circus clown car. My wife had chosen the best paint for the bedroom she could afford, a beatiful blue in...........Duluxe. Duluxe was like Kryptonite to this thing. It hated the thick paint, and literally as soon as i put it on the wall it stuck to the wall, and the pad came off. I perserved for a good hour like this: the pad coming off, the finish being non existent, the thing diassembling itself etc etc etc. After alot of swearing and frustration all the p.p.p had succeeded in doing was instill an anger in me normally reserved for the incredible hulk, cover me in paint, cover the room in paint, make a mess of the carpet and genuinely stress me out rotten. When my wife got home she came up to inspect my handywork, and was shocked to find that it looked like someone had gone insane with a can of paint. She was not impressed and was convinced that this was the result of a 'half hearted' approach by myself, after all how could i fail with a 'made eay' tool like this. A heated debate ensured, at which point my wife elected to show me how to do it herself and hooked up the pole (she is quite short) to show me how to do it (my wife is actually very good at this sort of thing) . On the first push the p.p.p came off and landed smack bang on her head, covering her in paint. This enranged her even more, and saw the p.p.p get thrown accross the room, liberally spraying anything on its flight path. My wife, knowing this time of thing wasnt good for her in her condition then asked me to "do my best" as she went to clean herself up. I tried, oh how i tried................and failed. This feeble piece of plastic insultery is unusable in every shape or form. It has a build quality akin to a 99p shop product, hates paint (even when id thinned the deluxe down to near water levels), and actually seems to be constructed with the sole aim of making your life harder, messier and more stressful. I would even go as far to say that this type of product could incite violence in the wrong hands such is its unashamed unusability. This bring me on to the endorsee, one Tommy Walsh. One can only assume that Mr Walsh was paid a hefty sum to put his name to such an unashamedly poor and misleading product. This product is sold on the basis of making painting easier, and yet seems utterly determined to do the opposite. The advert shows a smug Walsh (no doubt laughing himself silly inside on how hes getting paid lots to advertise such an amazingly feeble product), painting a wall, quickly, easily and in seconds, oh if only. My opinion of Mr wals is that of a mercenary, and i wont be watching him anymore. To satisfy myself i even went so far to ask a painter friend of mine (i would of used them however the idea was to save £££) to do the room, and see if he could use the tool. A painter for 12 years, he couldnt use it either and told me of how he'd used a similar product 10 years ago, which was so bad that he lost money on a job as he had to redo it again afterwards. I really wanted this to be a miracle product, however the saying is true. If it sounds to good to be true it usually is! Save yourself the £50 that i didnt

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)Didn't buy this from Amazon, bought it from Pitch TV and I wouldn't recommend it - no option to give it a zero star rating and this is what it would get if it was possible. I found it to be basically a use once and destroy product. None of the large pads would stay clipped into the handle (due to a poorly moulded handle), I got messy edging around light switches and skirting boards with the small pads and the coverage on a smooth wall was very inconsistent and wasteful of paint. I realised the paint would have to be thinned down to cover properly which would mean additional coats to end up with the desired finish and my opinion is the paint manufacturers don't intend you to do that. After a few unsuccessful trials with different paints, I reverted to the trusty brush for the edging quality I wanted and the old roller for mass coverage. ALSO WATCH FOR THE PITCH TV ADDITIONAL OFFERS ON OTHER PRODUCTS WHICH WILL RESULT IN A FIXED CHARGE IF YOU DON'T CANCEL WITHIN 30 DAYS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)Poor coverage, cheap build quality, falls apart, drags the paint, does not produce clean edges. All in all creates more work as you have to re-do with a brush. A total waste of time and money - buy a brush and a roller instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Fooled,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)as stated by many others who have left 1* for this product, IT IS DIRE. Don't be fooled by the ad with Tommy Walsh saying how quick and easy it is to use, it isn't. It falls apart, and is cheap and nasty. I bought this along with the bumper pack of pads and the extension pole. I used this today for the first time attaching the pole to the main Paint pad to do the ceiling. 1st swipe across the ceiling and the bracket sheared off completed mainly due to the fact that the bracket fittings are PLASTIC !!! therefore any use of force is going to break this easily. As for cover of paint, forget it. It doesn't work as it is shown to, it falls apart constantly, and doesn't give the smooth, one sweep coverage they would have you believe.
I have just tried to get a refund on this item as i bought it direct from PITCH TV and am now currently getting the run around. £46 down the drain and i will shortly be chasing my credit card to get this refunded for me.
AVOID PITCH TV AND AVOID THE PAINT PAD PRO

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor imitation of a good product,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)In 1968 we bought some Peter Pan Paint Pads made in Birmingham...they were made of Mohair, as they had worn out after 40 years and the company had gone down the tubes since....who can be surprised when their product lasted so long.....we bought these new ones....what a waste of money!!! very poor imitation indeed of what was once a very excellent product, these pads miss deep patterns in Anaglypta and the pads fall to bits as you go, they lasted about two uses on a quite small area, they are way below the product that Peter Pan Paint Pads made.... don't waste your money....if you see Tommy Walsh advertising these,.,,,,don't fall for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars a very bad buy,
This review is from: Paint Pad Pro as seen on PITCH TV (Misc.)We bought this to make paining easier. It doesn't and is more messy, hard to use and also does not put the paint on the wall as well as a roller or a paint brush. This product is a complete waste of money. Buy a good roller instead and get on with painting those walls! It kept falling apart, leaves streaks on the walls and is not fit for purpose. If I could give minus stars then I would.
