Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eel50 Excellent Purchase
You wouldn't think that a new toilet could result in great satisfaction of purchase - but this one did. This unit is a great improvement over my older one that had died. This unit has a very powerful flush, and uses half the water of my old one. In addition, the few extra inches of height is noticeabley more comfortable. Plus I received a $75 credit on my local water bill due to this high efficiency purchase. Regarding installation, I took the easy route and hired a plumber. He appeared to have a very easy time with it, and was done within 40 minutes. I highly recommend this unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irish0669 Very happy with this toilet
I am a 63 year old woman and I installed this toilet by myself in under 15 minutes. The toilet was well-packaged and the two pieces were easier to handle for one person. All of the internal parts of the tank were pre-installed, saving lots of time. Instructions were easy to follow. I did have to call customer service to find out how to set the water level in the tank. Their service was excellent. I was connected with a very knowledgeable lady who quickly answered my question. I have had the toilet for about three weeks and I am very happy with it and plan to install the same model in my other bathroom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gr2done Should have bought Kohler
originally installed 2 new comfort Kohler toilets in prior home, but on purchase of new condo I thought I was getting a more superior product, based on advertising and recommendations, by buying this American Standard product. But, on current comparison I wish I had purchased the Kohler product instead. Bought 3 of this version of toilet....one seems to have a problem with the flush/refill operation....called American Standard, but basic response was that if it flushes...no problem.....on refill the toilet bowl does not fill to same level all the time??????????? This is not rocket science technology!!! still trying to figure out cause of problem????

This toilet replaced an older toilet with standard (low) height to make it easier on older folks. It also sounded like it would be a stronger flush and save water at the same time. It's too soon to rate the performance, since it was just installed. However, some things to consider when buying this toilet. First the water tank seems a bit taller than our old one - no problem for us since there was nothing above. It is narrower, so some unpainted wall is exposed and touchup is needed. Also, if you store things on top of the tank, the lid has a raised rim, so it's not totally flat, and it is smaller so less stuff fits on it.
The last concern/puzzlement is the way the tank works. The opening of the flapper valve is about 4 inches from the bottom of the tank. So when you flush, 4 inches of water stays in the tank. My concern is that that water won't circulate and crud may accumulate in the tank. The description says the toilet has an "EverClean" surface to prevent bacteria, mold, and mildew, but I don't think that applies to inside the water tank. It isn't a shiny glaze like the toilet bowl.
Also, since the flush mechanism and flapper are not the standard type, you probably won't find generic replacement parts, like flapper, etc. Since our toilet is brand new, we haven't come to that bridge yet. Wouldn't it be nice if you could actually look inside the toilet when you shop? Why are the boxes down low and the sample toilets above your head? Can't think of a consumer-friendly reason, can you?
The flush action is very quick - only takes a second or two. Mostly a burst of water pushing waste out and a little water coming down the sides of the bowl. The refill is very quiet, So far, it has been flushing very well, though it takes some getting used to the different action. I find the seat comfortable, but the wife finds the round seat a bit small.
