Paint Sprayers, Opinions Please!

I need to paint two houses. Some inside work but mostly exterior. Do they have attachments to do the fancy ceiling stuff? I haven't got a clue to any of this stuff so I figured I would check with the resident experts on this matter. :) Some suggestions would be appreciated for the type, brands and the costs of what is available.

I have painted more than seven houses with the Paint Stick, once you figure it out, you'll love it, but if you don't you'll hate it, I did notice however, the earlier made ones ( bought through Orchard/division of Sears ) used to last a lot longer than the exact looking ones you buy these days, I guess you can call it American ingenuity, but for 19.95 it's not so bad ! you can buy rebuild kits too. They used to sell them on T.V. part of an infomercial for $59.99, but wait if you order now, you'll get....." you know what I mean "

I have tried the Wagner pumps as well, they work great,( sprayer and roller ) and you have to keep them clean, if you ever need any parts for the Wagner. " Just forget about it " the parts are extremely expensive.

I have the Wagner power sprayer. I like it. Overspray isn't really that bad but you do have to keep that into consideration.

I like the hose attachment. It made it easy to just hook up to a 5 gallon pail of stain or paint. Cleanup wasn't that bad. I'm used to cleaning spray equipment every day.

On really rough surfaces, you may have to brush it in though. You would put runs in the job if you tried to fill all of the nooks and crannies. Maybe if the paint had been thinned a little more, it would have flowed better but I didn't want it too thin.

I have 30yrs experience painting. I've painted hundreds of rooms and probably a hundred houses. Did two myself by hand last year. I have an old Binks Super Bee airless sprayer. I've painted everything with it. It's strong enough to just put the pickup tube right in to a gallon or five of paint. I've run oil and latex through it a hundred times. It's a tank. I also have a cheap Wagner HVLP spray cup that has served me well. I used to paint a rich lady's antique wicker furniture with it every season for her shore house. I thinned good ole Rustoleum with paint thinner with that one. Green furniture shown was done with Benjamin Moore oil base house paint, which is illegal in NJ now go figure. PM me anytime for advice. Sometimes it's just as easy to paint by hand with a work pot and a 4" box brush.
