Post Turbine HVLP Sprayers

Has anyone used a Turbine HVLP Sprayer like the one offered from TP. I have been doing my own painting for 25 years and I'm presently using a gravity feed HVLP gun, but even with that my shop gets to really be a mess. Will this turbine deal help me out?

The only time I have ever used a turbine type HVLP was about 15 or so years ago when they first came out. I don't know what the TP company has but if it is the type that has what looks like a vacuum cleaner hose on it attached to a sort of blower canister it's the type I tried. All I can say about it is that it was a piece of garbage.

A friend of mine bought an outfit through TP TOOLS, He has painted another friends coupe with it and it is turning out great. Alot of it may depend on the prep,paint and painter also.
Later,

The turbine units are mainly for portability. Dont have to drag an aircompressor around. Also they heat up the air which will affect your spraying. You cheapie turbines also do not atomize paint as well.

T.I.P. Turbine sprayer

Most of the responses are negative on the use of the turbine sprayer for modern paints. Since I bought this unit at Carlisle based on a glowing recommendation from the salesman, I'd like to at least get some use from it.
Would the paint experts on the forum recommend using the turbine for epoxy and/or 2K primer and sealer? I could then use a quality HVLP gun/compressor for the base and clear.
