Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smokeyabb Glad that I purchased it.
I like this toilet because it has a strong flush with less water. I had purchased another that was ADA and it was way to high for me and my feet dangled. I returned it and bought this one and it is the perfect height for my 4'11" body. It does't have a lot of water in the bowl but that has not been a problem like I thought it would. I like that I can do a short flush or hold the handle down for more water. Also, it fills quickly, so I am going to purchase another one for my master bath because we have to wait forever before someone else can use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MPAKIS It's the little things that make this so easy to install...
I am a 32 year old DIY male and have installed about 6 toilets in my life. It just so happens I installed a Kohler toilet for my dad in his house a month before this one. First off, it took absolutely no tools to install, which is great. You did not need anything except what was in the box. There are 5 reasons I would buy this toilet over the Kohler:
1. The bolts to mount the bowl to the flange include a small flat nut to hold the bolts in place while you line them up with the bowl. It sounds like a small thing but if you have done it before you know this can be a pain to keep the bolts where you want them while you are trying to set the toilet on the flange. See the photos.
2. The kit includes a waxed ring with a flanged horn which you would normally buy as a separate upgrade item instead of using the cheap one they usually include in the kit. It also fits the connection for the bottom of the bowl perfectly. (Side note - I had a little trouble with this because my flange is mounted on top of my finished floor and there is no extra space in the bottom of the toilet to accommodate the flanged horn so it did not work for me. I had to use a regular wax ring. I really just removed the horn from the ring.)
3. American Standard includes nylon washers that hold to the threads of the tank bolts when connecting the bowl to the tank. They also integrated the washer and the nut which spins on a little bearing. This sounds like a small thing too, but when you are trying to hold a nylon washer, a fender washer, and a nut upside down with one hand on a bolt that you cannot see, it really makes it simple. They also include two socket-wrench-like nylon tubes that hold the nut and make tightening a breeze; I thought they looked stupid when I first saw them but they worked great. See photo.
4. To attach the seat to the bowl they include these compression nuts that are very neat. They slide right up onto the threads tight and then when you tighten the nylon screws (with the same weird tube wrenches) they bite and work great. They always make the nylon bolts really long and you end up on your knees reaching under the toilet for five minutes tightening these silly things. With the compression nut it takes 20 seconds tops. See photo.
5. You do not have to cut off the tank bolts. They made the cap taller to accommodate the bolts. Also a small things but on hands and knees with a small hacksaw or wire snips is not fun to do. The hand tighten bolts also make a larger area for the caps to attach to so they are very secure.
This was by far the easiest toilet install I have done.

We initially installed an Ove in our bathroom remodel because of its compact size and sleek exterior. The Ove's mounting bolts could only be accessed by a small-armed woman reaching around in back to the other side inside the back, and then it didn't seat properly. No way were we going to try again. So we returned the Ove to the other store.
Our son recommended we save some money and get the Cadet 3 Flowise from Home Depot . He has them in their house. They were easy to install, and if anyone asked to borrow their plunger he wouldn't be able to find it because they don't use it anymore.
His advice was spot on. The Cadet 3 was a breeze to install first try, with a solid fit, and a generous flush. In another bathroom we have an expensive 2002 Toto Drake G-Max that has performed very well. The Cadet 3 is almost identical in size, i.e. perfect for small bathrooms, but the Cadet 3 has a better flush, and is significantly less money.
Per the reviews, we bought a better seat at the time of purchase, an American Standard telescoping Champion slow close Home Depot SKU #1000031506, which looks much better when the toilet is the first thing you see in the bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCustomer Very Happy!
We are very happy with this toilet! It has a strong flush to it! We needed a new toilet to replace our 20 year old one. I didn't want to spend a fortune! I read the reviews on this one and watched the video with them flushing chicken nuggets and water balloons, and all kinds of stuff down it so we thought we would give it a try. We had to plunger the old one every time my son used the toilet!!! LOL.......Not with this one!!! I recommend this to anyone looking for a inexpensive good toilet!

This was my first toilet that I have ever replaced. The toilet was a Christmas present from my sister...haha! Before I began I watched a couple of "how to..." vids on You Tube. It looked easy....and it was actually!! The whole project took me about 2 hours, but, the actual removing and installing took about 35 mins, most of the time was spent cleaning the old wax ring and the other messes. The only thing I didn't do according to the instruction was install the wax to the toilet itself, but, I pre- installed it on the flange......I heard/read that if installed on the toilet first there is the risk of it falling off before you put the toilet bowl down.
Everthing you need is in the box, the only extra tools I used was a cresent wrench and a putty knife to remove the old wax.
The toilet flushes EXCELLENTLY, compared to the old one which could hardly flush a piece of TP.
Since I am nolonger a virgin toilet installer, I am thinking of replacing my other toilet! Cheers

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomJ Easy install, tremendous value!
Just installed this toilet yesterday and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Looks great, saves on water use and was super easy to install. I consider myself to be pretty handy around the house, but I'd never installed a toilet before yesterday. I recommend this toilet to anyone looking for a high-efficiency upgrade to their bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Betty Finally a product as advertised
Great product from beginning to end. Affordable price. Free ship to store. Personnel loaded into vehicle. The ad said install without tools - Yeah, sure! - but I did install without any tools! Had to use tools to remove old toilet though. Everything was provided for installation including wax gasket. Have had this for about 1 month and it appears to be close to self-cleaning and flushes great every time. I didn't realize when I ordered but it came with a self-closing lid. When I need to order one for 2nd bathroom it will be this one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RW80537 Very disappointed
Purchased this toilet 3 weeks ago, easy to install but- it leaked and leaked and leaked. Finally have it diagnosed to the gasket between the bowl to stool is the problem. Called American Standard as after reading other bad reviews on here looks like this is a known issue with some of these toilets. The rep was rather tough to deal with and claimed they would send me a complimentary new gasket set out in 5-7 days. Well it has been 2 weeks and nothing still from them. I am very disappointed with this toilet and on the American Standard website it shows it has been discontinued no less so they must know about these problems with it. Would not recommend it to anyone.
