Good intro paint sprayer
For a plastic low end paint sprayer, the PaintWIZ PW25000 does a really nice job. Even if you've used a sprayer before I'd still suggest a few things before you get started:
1. If you need to dilute per instructions, under-dilute first and see how it sprays; you can always dilute more, but you can't un-dilute easily. Every model,unit, and paint varies in how it's going to come out. I was surprised in the difference between a year-old can and a new can of the same paint.
2. Once you get the dilution ratio set, mix up as much as you think you need for the job. This way the ratio will be consistent for the whole job, and you won't be spending time mixing while your project is drying unevenly.
3. Test out the sprayer on scrap first, get used to how it sprays horizontal vs vertical and with different flow rate before you attack your actual job.
4. Really make sure you clean it out with detail when you're done. Anything left in the spray apparatus to dry and cake on will make a huge negative impact the next time around.
5. Be very generous when taping off edges. I usually tape newspaper or drop cloth to the trim instead of just the strip of tape. Even if you're used to the spread of the spray, you may not be 100% careful and droplets can wander. It's notoriously difficult to get paint off a popcorn ceiling or match the dirty white. I've also killed off a portion of a shrub outside by getting too much paint on it when doing a fence. Drop cloths, dead wind, and a face mask are your friends.

Plastic version of the famous Fuji sprayers
By D. Coral
The PaintWIZ PW25000 is made by Fuji. I first learned of the Fuji sprayers on the woodworking discussion forums where these models are highly recommended by the experts for jobs such as finishing window blinds. The Fuji sprayers are made of metal, while this one is made of plastic. This is an "economy" version of their famous sprayers, and so far my first impression is that the actual spray quality is about the same. Here are some photos that show the internals when it is taken apart.

Perfect for small to medium sized painting projects.
I just had my home painted by professional house painters and decided to get my own sprayer after watching how quickly and easily they were able to paint my house with a sprayer. To be clear, the sprayers used to paint an entire house are much more expensive, costing upwards of $500 or more, but then they are also much more capable of pumping gallons of paint per hour.
For only $120.00 The PaintWIZ is perfect for small to medium sized painting projects. With no previous experience with a sprayer and no formal instruction other than watching the painters who sprayed my house, I was able to paint several panels of wooden lattice in less than an hour including clean up. One word of caution, although the video implies that the spray is precise enough to avoid taping off areas you don't want to paint I would advise carefully taping off those areas. Even the professionals were careful to tape of and cover anything they didn't want to paint. The steadiest of hands can't contain paint carried by the wind.
