They ARE NOT the same thing. They do not have the same properties. Technically they really aren't even thinset mortar. Why pay more for it to fail?

Gotcha. Thanks!

I've always mixed my own mortar. Oddly enough, it really isn't very tough to do with a drill and heavy paint mixer.

It's interesting though, because the buckets of the pre-mix are shockingly expensive! I'm surprised they actually sell any.

They are easy to use, they are sold as one-size-fits-all. This is what the makers are counting on. Those products are super high profit margin products and they make them sound good.
