Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PickyDIYguy A great shower head at a great price
The pressure at my home is on the low side (flow rate out of the shower pipe without a shower head is not much over 2 gpm. I needed a shower head that could deliver a decent flow with this pressure. When I saw this unit in our local HD store I was skeptical because of the price. How could it be good at less that $5? I checked the reviews and surprisingly, they were very high. Most of the negative comments were due to the label.
I just installed the unit, and I give it a high recommendation--5 stars! First, the label will come off cleanly if you pull is off SLOWLY. Teflon tape is provided, a nice bonus. No tools are needed (or advised)--the connection is plastic. This shower head delivers a very nice spray pattern at a very acceptable flow, even with my low pressure. It's so much better than higher priced units. I measured the flow at slightly less than 2 gpm, down a little from the pipe flow. Yes, there is a lot of plastic, but how much wear and tear does it incur up there on the shower pipe? I expect this unit to last a long time. And if after some time it does lime up or crack......it's only $5!!!!! I will buy another one.
Remember that those fancy shower heads with multiple spray patterns require a lot of pressure to operate properly. Single-pattern units like this one are much better over a range of pressure.
I am extremely happy with this shower head.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkU9517 Very good product for the money!
So far I have purchased a handful of these. Since the first one, I have put in all of my showers plus installed one at my parents and several in my girlfriends townhouse showers. I recommend this shower head all of the time. Easy to install, great look, works as good as any expensive ones I have purchased and if anything happens to it - just spend a few more bucks on a new one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WeekiWacheeJim Great value for the money
I was a little concerned about all the complaints about the sticker, but I figured I had Goof Off anyway, so what the heck. Started peeling the sticker off at the end, carefully, and 99% of it came right off. A flick of the fingernail removed the remaining tiny piece. No issue. As for the head. Nice even stream, good focus. Nothing more I could ask for at 2 to 3 times the price. No, it isn't a luxury head, but then I'm not the luxurious showering type - just want to get clean, and having had to toss the last (far more expensive) one due to lime build up, I'm glad that when the time comes to toss this one, I'll be out way less than the price of a fancy one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David1949 There is a stick-on label that won't come off.
This is another example of ruining a good product by putting a stick-on label in a location where it is highly visible and won't come off. The label says "HAND TIGHTEN ONLY" in three languages. They need not worry about that. It's not going to get tightened at all since I'm taking it back to the store.
Why would anyone want to waste their time trying to remove a stubborn label. Time is money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ML A great shower head to buy!
After reading the homedepot reviews, I decided to buy 2 of them at the store in case it ran out if this model and try one out to see if i like it. It is easy to install by hand since all u do is turn it around in circle until it lock tight. The sticker is easy to take out too. Just careful, slowly peel it off and it will barely leave any of the sticker residues on the metal connecter area of the showerhead. After I installed it at midnight, I took a shower to test it out to see how is the water pressure of the product. Water pressure is strong and it spray where u want it to spray on u when u shower and in one direction down at u so doesnt waste water by spraying to empty spaces in the stall. It was one of the best shower I ever had in a long time after many yrs of putting up with my mom''s sorry assed, expensive shower head in my bathroom!! I am very happy to buy this product to use since it work good as the reviewers say it would do and cheap to buy too.

Be prepared to spend a half hour with your thumbnail to almost remove the HAND TIGHTEN ONLY label. Other than that it seems to be a decent inexpensive shower head.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mira2775 Great Showerhead Except for Mold
I bought this shower head to replace the cheap shower head that our apartment maintenance installs. The value and ease of installation can't be beat and it provides a very comfortable shower.
However, we live in a very old building and we have an issue with lime deposits clogging shower heads as well as mold in the bathroom. The shower head comes apart well enough for me to soak and clean out the lime deposits to keep it working well, but the rubber ball joint and gasket are mold magnets and I can't get the ball joint out to thoroughly clean it.
I'd definitely recommend for anyone who doesn't have an issue with mold in their bathroom.
