As a vehicle refinishing industry professional I have had the opportunity to test all the major paint brands, Dupont, Sikkens, Sherwin Williams, PPG, Diamont, RM, and in many cases I have been able to spray them side by side to compare. I can attest that all companies have their stengths and weaknesses. However the product that was the easiest to spray and yielded not only the best looking results but fastest cycle times and productivity (body shop terminology) is Sherwin Williams.
