      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      not worth using unless on fencesetc

      I like painting however i don't like how long it takes to do and after trying a few cheaper options i decided to splurge out and get this.

      ==**In the box**==
      1 x Bosch PFS 55 spray gun
      1 x 600 ml paint container
      1 x 100 ml measuring container
      1 x Handle extension
      1 x training DVD
      1 x Instruction manual

      ==**First thoughts**==
      I didn't like how it only came with the one paint container so one of the first things i did was buy a spare.The dvd shows you clearly how to use the product however the person on the dvd does wear goggles and it would have been nice if these had been included, i wouldn't have minded paying extra as at least it would have made it a complete kit.

      ==**In use**==
      So after waiting for safety goggles i was finally ready to start.My first thoughts about the spray gun is that with the paint added it is rather heavy so i know for example my friend who has carpel certainly wouldn't be able to lift the product for any length of time. I do think of bosch as an okay brand and the spray gun does feel quite durable (or as i call it Katie proof)
      This is described as being able to adjust the paint nozzle for accurate spraying: choose from a wide paint jet in a horizontal or vertical direction, or choose a pencil-thin jet.This works okay for painting large areas but i thought if i put it on the smallest setting it would work okay for stencils etc but this wasn't the case. For detailed work doing it by hand is better.
      This works okay on water based paints but the sprayer doesn't seem to like emulsion paints that much.
      Like any painting i would recommend only doing this on a day where you can leave the windows wide open or if you are using on furniture,take it outside and paint it.

      ==**Price**==
      At around £55 this isn't that cheap so unless your going to use on large areas like fences i wouldn't recommend.
