High Volume/Low Pressure (HVLP)

Pros: Good for interior use since low pressure (3 to 10 psi) creates little overspray and a very smooth finish; mid-range cost ($200 to $500 for better home-use models).

Cons: Can't spray thick paint.

Best for: Finishing inside trim, cabinets, moldings, and doors.
