I haven't used it in years. But back in the day it was pretty good. SW is closer then ace for me.

Decent paint. I did have some trouble several years back when a customer was wiping their walls after a few months had gone by.......the were trying to wipe marks, etc. from their kids. Anyway, the color would actually rub off of the wall onto the rag. It soured me on using the ACE paint again, but, overall it was good paint.....about on the same scale as Valspar's higher end paint.

Yea, its decent.. That's a good way to put it.

The flat seemed fine to me. Had a problem with the semi gloss not drying right on some walls.

I know they're in cahoots with Benjamin Moore - is that paint actually made by BM? I used it many years ago, on which occasion it was fine. I think it was their top of the line at that time - what they labeled as 5 star I believe.

I have used it a short time ago and as with all paints it has gone thru some changes. I found it to be a pretty good middle of the road paint. As far as BM I think they make it. But it may be a deal like WalMart SW used to make their paint but they lost the contract, now Glidden makes it, but it's still sold under the name Color Place.
