I bought this one a few months ago when it was discounted to $200 (- 20% more of course), and it is superb, far better than most HF stuff. A lot of the parts are interchangeable with Graco airless equipment (top of the line pro stuff), including replacement nozzles [lowes.com]
which are readily available at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. The included spray gun is almost identical to the Graco SG3 [lowes.com]
This can be used to spray everything from heavy latex etc (with no thinning needed) to stains etc that are super thin.
Though not for everyone, if you do have occassional need for a capable sprayer, you'll love this machine (light years ahead of air-compressor driven or small handheld Wagner-style units). With proper care it should take you through many many years of projects.
