Pros: The T-55 is an extremely comfortable sprayer to use, and it comes with a well-written, informative instruction manual. Of the units tested, the T-55 has the best turbine filtration. The sprayer comes with a viscosity drip cup and is equipped with a 14-ft.
power cord.

Cons: The T-55 has a slightly stiff air hose and no air-reducing valve.

As my first HVLP system, it was a good choice. Within the first day of using the system, the air flow valve handle on the supply hose to the gun broke making adjustment almost impossible. A smaller needle is required to spray water based paints efficiently. The gun has worked very well and have sprayed several sets of kitchen cabinets as well as other cabinetry.
