Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SadSusy deceptively delicate
The house we just bought came with 5 (five!) of these faucets, one in each bathroom sink. The first week we moved in, I saw what I thought was some lime scale building up at the base of one of the faucets. Since it didn't come off with multi-surface cleaner, I got out my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. BIG MISTAKE!!! HUGE!!! One minute of Mr. Clean took the finish right off the faucet. I know the faucet has a lifetime warranty on the finish, and I can probably take it back and get a replacement, but who is going to reimburse me for the time and hassle of re-installing another? These are WAY more fragile than the price or warranty would lead you to believe, and now I'm stuck with five faucets that need a ridiculous amount of TLC. My recommendation is to keep looking.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by chuck Excellent looking and functioning rubbed bronze faucet
This faucet looks excellent and works flawlessy. It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. I purchased a cheap $120 rubber bronze faucet and the cold valve had a constant drip and the hot cheap plastic supply hose blew off. The hoses that come with this are stell braided and have nice metal threaded ends. Do it once and buy the best one. This one is guaranteed for life on finish and functionality. Also, the stopper uses a cable linkage which provides effortless operation going up and down.

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 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 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.

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.
