Accubrush Paint Edger

Has anyone tried it? I usually avoid gimmicky specialized tools but I'm terrible at doing the edging between the ceiling and wall. Past attempts using blue tape have sometimes worked; other times I get an uneven line or pull off paint.
If you have experience with the Accubrush or have tips on how to do a decent edge, I'd appreciate it.

We have tried the roller edging thing that was on tv and were unhappy with it.The little pad painters with the little rollers/wheels on the edge worked better.
We are now "tape / caulking". We apply the 1 1/2 blue tape to the ceiling or baseboards or whatever we are trying to keep clean. and then run a thin line of caulk at the edge of the tape where the wall meets the ceiling or baseboard. The caulk is then smoothed and thinned out further with your finger. We run our finger in one direction then the other to make sure the caulking is very thin. The caulk must be "very" thin to work properly. We tape and then caulk as we go when working on the ceiling to minimize the trips up and down the ladder. For caulking we use the cheap painters latex caulk. $10.00 per case at the home center.
The tape and caulk can be left for a couple of days before painting if you need time.
When we start cutting in at the tape, we pull the tape as we go. Maybe paint one wall at the baseboard and pull the tape or at the ceiling pull the tape before you go down to move the ladder over. This will keep the paint from peeling up with the tape.
We use this process to get very clean lines regardless of the texture on the walls and regardless of my guys painting skills. This is the fastest process with the best results we have found yet.
Good luck,
