PVA or what

What do you guys use on new smooth wall finish sheetrock? I did a job last week and used Sherwin Williams Southwest Builders Surfacer. Worked great covered well, dried a little faster than it could be back rolled but other than that everyone was pleased including the sheetrock crew and the super picky gc.

This product cost double what the local pva primer cost.

Wasn't there a thread on here for months from a guy getting sued for peeling paint from prep rite primer used on new sheet rock? If I remember the home owner supplied prep rite; the contractor ran out and used some cheap stuff. The paint stuck to his primer but not to the prep rite.
