For my purposes, it didn't affect the results. The Minwax product went on very evenly and was easy to apply, I got about three coats of three passes each out of a can, I used two cans.
At times I use 0000 grade steel wool between finish coats for added smoothness. I have sprayed hundreds of gallons of lacquer and sanding sealer and cheap lacquer is not worth it for a good finish.

Not quite as hard as two-part automotive lacquers two parts lacquer to one part hardener. Only 20 left in stock - order soon.

Two coats covered well. Albert Einstein To follow blindly, is to never become a leader............................................ In order to protect it against the elements, I was able to put on three very thorough coats of this clear top coat and the result is simply night and day.
