Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Faucetfury Worst design ever
Faucets are around our 10 year old home and the plastic sleeves need replaced at least every two years.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steph66 Looks great, but handles eventually strip and spin
We have 6 of these faucets in our 7 yr old home. I am now an expert on replacing the inside of the faucets. The black plastic adapter that goes over the cartridge
fits inside the faucet handle which is metal. I have had to get parts and replace parts 9 times. I love the look, but I can't figure out who in their right mind puts a plastic piece around a metal post and doesn't think the plastic groves will eventually wear away.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FailedInFive Handles quit working
The Princeton has an ideal shape, a nice finish, a long spout that sends the water close to the middle of the sink, a slick cable operated drain stopper and an innovative bell housing design. I purchased 4 (at quarter grand each!) and professionally installed them with precision and utmost care in three separate bathrooms (one bath has a double sink). The major negative is that all the faucets handles microscopically leak in such a manner that mineral builds up to the point of preventing the handles from turning the water on or off. This has happened despite having a water softener conditioning the water for the entire house! American Standard has replaced the handles once for us and we barely get a couple more years of service, but who wants the hassle of changing handles only to have the same continuing problem!!! So, within 5 years we are buying new and having to replace all our Princeton faucets. Meanwhile, our other master bath sinks with Phylrich faucets are working fine, so that's the difference a high quality "Made in the USA" product can deliver. My advice is to avoid American Standard's Princeton and spend the money for something that lasts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by clankycoyote9 tough maintenance
These lasted about 8 years and looked nice. Handles finally got so hard to turn they had to be replaced. But handle assembly would not unscrew from deck adapter. Had to use a Dremel to cut handles off. Replacment handles are $50 each which seems high. This was a nice faucet while it lasted but I did not like the design of how the handle was connected. My next faucet will be different.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hawaii47 Faucet shine
I purchased this faucet because of the way it looked. When it was installed I was very pleased at how easy the faucet works and how nice it shines. This faucet cleans like a charm. I have no complaints. I am glad that I purchased the faucet.

I have been happy with the look and finish of this product, however, the "guts" wear out quickly. Thankfully, AS will replace the part for free, but the sink is out of service until the part arrives. Next time, no plastic.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jayson Is it really worthed?
Looks great but handle assemblies gave up within year and half. Had to buy flimsy plastic adapters so that handles can turn on-off. Cheap plastic. Still working on it as it is not so-easy to remove, as advertised, without incurring damage and knicks.
