PPG product input

My paint store is going to be carrying PPG industrial product and their Speedwall line. Any particular products you guys love from them? I do mainly residential work, so not much use for the industrial line but I might get into garage floors are some point.

How is speedwall for drywall primer, compared to BM super spec 253 or vapor barrier? How does speedwall stack up to super spec (for low end new homes)?

They will not be carrying their upper line of paint at this point, they are a Graham and BM store mainly right now.

I use the speedhide flat or eggshell on many high-end interior homes, it works great. I'm not a huge fan of the speedhide primer (5-2 I think it's called) and even less of a fan of the 8 line series self-priming paint. So far I haven't found a primer that works better then the SW Masterhide paint and is self-sealing on new drywall. Spraying and back rolling it gives a finished appearance easily in one coat and in fact I'll leave my ceilings that way.
