That's the stupidest thing I've read today.Yup! But unfortunately CR puts too much weight on surface price of things and factors that in. So the paint can be crap but because it is cheap, CS ups its rating.
But then, if people do not want to listen to people who do, or did, paint for a living and see CS as some sort of biblical reference? The deserve what they get.
Interesting that you seem to know the inner workings of Consumers Reports and how and why they rate things.
Also a pile of crap.
If you get a bad result from the paint, it's due to operator incompetance, not the product.
