I am considering buying a Graco Pro x7, which I will use mostly for exterior residential jobs. Does anyone here have any experience with this model? Around where I live there are a lot of cookie-cutter type neighborhood homes being constructed, which I could save lots of time and labor on with a quality sprayer...

I would stay away from that model. For about the same amount of money, you can purchase a Graco 390 PC.

The ProX 7 puts out a maximum of .34GPM, while the 390 does .47 GPM.
The Prox7 can accommodate a spray tip of up to .017, while the 390 can accommodate a spray tip up to .021.

Thus, the 390PC pumps more paint per minute, and gives you more flexibility with tip sizes. Also, the pump is very easy to replace when it eventually goes out.

Talk to a Sherwin Williams rep and see what price you can get. Mine came with a replacement pump and 3 tips, and a coupon for 3 more tips. All for under $700.

I wouldn't go smaller than the 390.

I'm the opposite from the OP. I can't stand graco. Titan has been way better to me as far as pumps and tips. Graco tips always finger they never seem to break in. Titan pumps are less expensive and have better features IMHO.
