Question pre-mixed grout

I've read some threads advising against using pre-mixed grout. HD carries a pre-mix offered by Traffic Master, and they say the results/feedback for the grout is positive. I was wondering what the overall consensus is?

I think their premix only comes in white, but I am not 100% on that. Anyway, it might be ok for a pinhole touchup but any professional will tell you that the bag/box of grout is the better way to go by far. I would never consider the grout in a bucket for a full job and I would never ever use their premixed thinset in a bucket for anything. One guy did say it was good as a boat anchor.

I've used the premix grout on kitchen back splashes and non-tub area walls.

No problems.

It was white, I don't recall any other colors either.

I wouldn't use it for floors (anywhere) or for tub surround walls.
