Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Demps Easy first-time success installation; rapid flush and quick, quiet refill
You'll spend more time removing the old toilet. Assuming level floor and properly cleaned and positioned flange and water supply tube (neither included), the installation should take 15 to 20 minutes. Everything else that you will need is included (bowl, tank, seat, seal, guts and tools). Comfortable height, more than ample seating (quiet-close seat and lid), and no unintended bidet effect! Compact tank. You can't go wrong with this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KHkh Leak. Installation was easy
I purchase 2 round bowls and they went in pretty good. Removal of the old toilets took much longer than installation of the new ones. The new ones took only 15 minutes. However, this elongated one leaks. Few drops of water pile up and puddle right on the American Standard logo.
Called AS customer service and they said they'll send me couple of new bolts and a gasket for replacement. I saw some other reviews with similar problem and same location of leak. Will see what happens once the replacement parts are in and I replace them. If they don't fix the problem I have to take it back and so it is a hassle just when I thought I was done thinking about the toilets.
I like the universal parts in them that can be replaced easily not like the fancy shmancy toilets that you have to replace the entire toilet if one part needs replacement later on. Who can wait a few weeks for the new parts to arrive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KennyB Great toilet, easy to install
Over the years, I've installed many toilets and this one has to have been the easiest to install. While they say 'no tools required', in reality, they just provide you the plastic tools that you need. But very, very simple to install. The box is heavy, so you might need two people to carry it. But the individual pieces aren't too heavy. Just when they are all together in the box. While I wasn't looking for the feature, I was quite surprised to find that the lid is a slow closing lid, so it won't slam shut. I installed this for my elderly mother who really enjoys the taller rim, since this model is ADA compliant. The flush is strong, handle is easy to press, and the tank refills pretty quick. This system has everything you need except a water supply line, so you might consider purchasing one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by iHeartcupcakes No. Just no.
Grrr. So much regret. This purchase makes me feel stupid. I no longer trust myself to make decisions. This toilet is fine if you don't use toilet paper or if you don't go #2. If all you ever do is #1, you'll love this toilet. It has a nice, slow closing lid and a pretty quiet flush. It's just that the flush is pathetically weak. You must flush repeatedly for an average #2 job. You have to pull the toilet paper off the bowl and put it into the water if you want it to get flushed. If the TP touches the bowl, the TP doesn't get sucked down the hole. This toilet is ONLY good for flushing liquids.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billy Installed Cadet 2 Piece 1.28 GPF Elong. Toilet
My existing toilet was leaking in my half bath. I bought the toilet based on the ease of installation and "no tools" required. Great product, easy to install. My wife was very happy and impressed that I did this myself. I wish all projects were this easy. And I am getting a rebate for the install from Fulton County GA. Thank you, Home Depot

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smiles Love the powerful flush!
I love this toilet! Purchased this toilet (Cadet 3) about 3 weeks ago and I like the powerful flush, High seat, awesome price and very easy to install. I am a woman and have never installed a toilet before, but I did w/this one. I purchased the Cadet 4, approx 1 year ago, which was higher priced, and I dont see much of a difference in the two, as far as performance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sweeterae Solid Water Saving bathroom fixture.
Somewhat easy to install. I bought 2 toilets. One did not have the anchor bolts in the box. I contacted the manufacturer and they mailed them to me(5 days). I already had the existing toilet removed so I made a extra trip to HD for the bolts. The toilet seat mounting bracket is flush with the rim of the toilet. I added a water bidet so I had to add extra bumpers/risers to raise the seat and make it level. Toilet flushes very well and has reduced our water usage. Was 1.6 now at 1.28gpf. Toilet is solid and sturdy and the elongated bowl is easy on my man parts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mudgen Not my dad's American Standard
VERY easy install. Toilet and parts seem designed for homeowners who don't install toilets often.
BUT the thing does not consistently flush clean, often leaving small dots of solid waste clinging to the rear of the bowl.
I bought this based on the excellent reviews and my dad's long time high opinion of American Standard stuff (he was a licensed master plumber). I'm disappointed in the performance, and will probably eventually get tired enough of taking a brush to it constantly to yank it out and put in a Moen (which I have in my other two baths).
