What type of brush should I use for latex paint?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
I need to purchase a brush for painting around the house with latex paint. Is there anything I should look for?
Use a nylon polyester bristle brush. Purdy and Linzer brushes found at Home Depot are good bang for the buck. Try to stay away from those $1.00 throw away brushes, because the bristles fall out everywhere. That's why they are $1.00!
You can not use a natural bristle brush with latex paint. The bristles will repel away from each other, and the brush will look like it exploded after it's in use for a while!
