We've had a good experience with Dunn Edwards, in fact our entire home is painted with their paints (decovel in most rooms/permasheen in kitchen, laundry & bathrooms). We've been in our house 5 years and any smudges on the walls wipe off easily without any residual marks. Our house is very bright and there hasn't been much noticeable fading either. It seems that most prof. painters in our area use DE. BTW, if you have AAA you can get a 25% discount on DE paints.
