From Wagner :
The trim-it is designed to make cutting-in around windows, doors, trim and corners fast and easy. It provides a continuous flow of paint to the pad from the inside, eliminating the need for messy, dripping brushes.
Will this handy tool replace the brush? No, unfortunately it can not totally replace a brush; but it does work better than a brush for many areas.
We find the Trim-It works very well for these type areas:
Cutting in walls to flat/smooth ceilings. (Not so good on bumpy/popcorn ceilings.)
Cutting in walls to door jambs. (Not as good on walls to baseboard as most baseboards do not have enough "lip" for the Trim-it's edge to ride on; however with some practice works well enough.)
Cutting in floors to just about any wall. (This it does Extremely well, the Trim-it is a back saver for decks!!)
Many other cut-in areas will still require the old fashioned brush.
How does it hold up? On a recent project, we used/tested a Trim-it for almost 1-gallon of cutting-in with no problems. Little tool worked well. The Trim-it's pad (which in general all pads do) seems to put on a better coat than a brush would (especially on the hard to reach areas we was cutting in on a deck), which often lead to a one coat cut in verses two coats required with a brush.
We just tossed it after usage, so can not comment on clean up time. Would estimate the Trim-It shaved at least 2-hours off our cut in time, so was well pleased.
