It will make painting SOOOO much easier, produce a nicer finish that minimizes brush lines, makes cutting sharp lines against a ceiling or around trim a lot easier, and if you clean it out properly after each use it will last a long time.

I only use cheap brushes when I have no intention of cleaning the brush when I am done. Like when using a shellac based primer that requires methyl hydrate to clean the brush. Throwing away a $2 brush is cheaper than cleaning it.

The following example is for those of us who cut-in freehand without masking tape.<<

What! What about brush marks? I think that a good brush is important whether you tape or not.
