Today, latex can vary widely in quality by the type of resin used, and buyers should ask about it at their paint store. Acrylic is best, followed by vinyl acrylic, but all vinyl is not as good.
I must confess that I find latex much easier to work with today. It doesn’t require a wet edge, so the painter can stop mid wall and start later without seeing any line. It dries fast, and best of all, wet paint can be cleaned with soap and water. But I have used it only for wall surfaces and ceilings.
For trim and doors, I use only alkyds or oil based paints because they are more durable when they dry. Clean up, though, can be bothersome, requiring mineral spirits. I’m embarrassed to admit that sometimes I just throw out the brush or roller rather than attempting to clean them.
