Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thelog This product is very well made
Installation started out easy since I removed the sink off the vanity and was able to install the faucet and new hose hook-ups with sink on its side (easy access to everything).
Reinstalled sink and hoses. Everything was going good until I installed the drain cable asssembly at the drain - the end that was preinstalled in the body when I received it had disengaged. I tried to thread it back in and it wasn't going and I ended up stripping the thread. I called American Standard (AS) at the number given with the unit and that's when I was told that that end is reverse threaded. No where is critical piece of information mentioned in the instructions. AS sent me a new cable and with a little difficulty (sink is now mounted, very small vanity, and hoses are in the way), and the reverse thread knowledge, was able to get it installed and functioning properly.
Would have given a 5-star rating for ease of installation if not for the cable assembly fiasco. Also, if the instructions would have stated that the cable was reverse threaded on the body end, I could have pretightened the cable before I reinstalled the sink and eliminated this problem all together.
However, with that said and the correct information, the drain cable assembly is step above the standard rod/lever drain assembly.
As a side note, this fixture is rated at 1.8 gpm max. which is more than adequate for face and/or hand washing. However, if you need to fill the sink basin with water, for whatever reason, it is slow going. This not a fault of the fixture as almost all bathroom sink faucets are rated at the same maximum flow rate (water conservaton effort).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan This product has great features!
Although gold fixtures are considered "old-style" (especially since brushed nickel has hit the market) these fixtures enhance the beauty of any bathroom making it appear more elegant, as well as providing great performance from a well known brand. It also helps reduce water consumption which I was extremely happy about. Who can't use a lower water bill?! I was almost tempted to buy 2 more just in case it's hard to find them 20 years from now!

We bought these faucets for our bathrooms when building our home. We had noticed them in a friends house and asked how well they kept up..they said they had them for several years and they still looked like new. We have been in our home since 04 and they still look awesome! Its nice to find a product that will stay with you thru the years..and look classically good!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WRWhizard Body OK, pop up and handles don't last.
I replaced a 40 year old faucet with this a few years ago. Shame. The cable for the pop up has seized up for the last time, and the handles are corroding away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theitalian61guy Over all we were satisfied with this purchase.
We were pleased with the speed this was shipped to us, and the confirmation e-mail we received regarding this order. We have never ordered on line from Home Depot. but would not hesitate to do so again if we could not find what we were looking for in the store.
