I have been a longtime fan of Benjamin Moore but since moving to AZ have been wondering about Dunn Edwards. Anyone have an opinion??? TIA!!!

Never heard of Dunn Edwards. Used BM when we built our house recently and am very happy with it. Love the Pottery Barn colors! Good luck ...

I've never used the other and I'd have to hear pretty compelling reviews and see a much lower price point to try it.

I love how Benjamin Moore paint goes on and lasts.

My dh is a paint contractor. He usually uses DE or Kelly Moore. Both are good quality.

I don't think you could go wrong with either. Both are quality paint that go on nicely and last.
