This thing has excellent quality. It cost somewhat more than the lower priced ones, but when you hold the doorknob in your hand and realize the heft of it, you know that it is something elegant. I had purchased other ones in a polished brass finish, but needed one with the brushed nickel, and this thing looks great. The Smart Key feature is actually easy to use if you know how to read the directions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shoepa Very good product, you get what you pay for!
First, pick up 25 dollar doorknob. It is about 2 lbs and made with inferior products. Now pick up the Baldwin Prestige. It's 9 lbs, made with brass and heavy steel. Installed easy and works great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gumby Identical codes on packages on shelves ??
All locks even padlocks usually has its own unique keycode used to make unique keys, right? This is not true for knob sets you shop at hardware stores and elsewhere. Often they come in a batch of identical keycodes . yes there is several different keycodes but same keycode are seen on multiple packages which is unbelievable to see! I ask the clerk why ! he just shrugged his shoulders! this is unbelievable! Lax security!
I can only guess that knob manufacturers seek to maximize profits by manufacturing as many identical code knobs as possible. Why be bothered with making a knob with its own unique keycode which costs more per unit.. It may be ok if it is separated and distributed over the country as long as each store has one knob with own unique keycode. and other store has to be at least 100 miiles away .for instance. This will be fine with me.. But in my local store, I see identical style of knobsets with identical keycodes often more than several . Mind bogglling1

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeginDIY A solid door knob
I had to get new doorknobs for my front and back doors because they were in seriously bad conditions--to the point where they would lock by themselves and we would get locked out of the house. I went to Home Depot to get new ones and this model was one of the few doorknobs that I would feel safe using for my front and back doors. Most of the other ones were cheaper. Never skimp on a door knob that keeps you and your property safe...
They are a very solid/heavy piece of hardware that comes with simple instructions and are very easy to install. All you need is a screwdriver. The only problem I had was getting the strike plate adjusted correctly so the door would close. I never had to install a new doorknob before but I am under the impression that this has to be done with all new doorknobs.
The one con I have is that the interior and exterior knobs seem a tiny bit loose. I tightened the knobs as much as I could in the installation process but they still seem to jiggle a little bit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Locking mechanism binds up
My previous Baldwin knobs have been great. I wanted to try one with the Smart Key feature so that it would be easier to change the locks. The button to lock the door works ok on one knob, but binds up on the other. I exchanged them once, but may need to again. Seems to be related to how the knob fits over the locking mechanism since it works without the door knob on it.

This knob set looks great on our back door. We paired it with the double cylinder deadbolt for extra security. The only con would be that the key has to be inserted in the opposite direction from the deadbolt necessitating turning the key over to operate the other lock. Not impossible, but a hassle to have to do.
