Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeC Quality you can feel
Like any other lock set in that it's easy to install, but the difference between Baldwin & others at this price point is quality. Silky smooth mechanism, perfectly proportioned and beautifully finished. Now if they would have offered the Carnaby knob with a round plate I would have been even happier...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tbinsf Worth the extra $
Glad I went to the store to see the demo models they had set up. These just look and work a lot better than others costing within $10-15 of the same amount. I installed several of these and one of another brand at the same time and the difference was clear just taking it out of the package, and then even more so in how it installed and then operated. When you think of how long this kind of hardware stays in place, decades maybe, it's definitely worth the small upcharge. One comment on installation, I think it's worth drilling pilot holes as I found the screws tended to "hunt" and follow the grain lines of our douglas fir doors if you self-tap them. For those looking at both, these comments apply as well to the lever type, and locking as well as passage, we filled our new house with Baldwins.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fixitup Amazingly beautiful, heavy with a top grade finish
These knobs really enhanced my decorating project. Baldwin is truly first rate producing easy to install, long lasting knobs and locksets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CW2015 Excellent, Sturdy Door Knob
These knobs are very solid and have some weight to them which make for a nice feel when opening/closing doors. Easy to install and have a very nice finish and look. Worth the extra cost for something that looks and feels high quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricB Best latch and locksets, period!
After installing the smartkey locksets on all my external doors, I bought matching interior latches. These Baldwin sets are so much superior to any of the other brands. They have a great look and feel, and are very well made. The smart key feature is very cool. Changing the keys, or matching them is a breeze. Installation is no different from most standard locksets. The only drawback.... A bit costly, but worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixIt Solid Build
These seem like simple door handles, and on that basis alone, their price may seem outrageous. However. One must consider coercion and symmetry, or so my wife tells me. She swears by Baldwin locks, and hence is partial to their non-locking hardware as well. Despite being the most expensive knobs available at my local Home Depot, and despite the price premium over the competition, I'm happy to say that these handles truly deliver. They are solid and feel great in your hand. They have plenty of design features to differentiate them from your standard ball-knobs. And they function beautifully. They are packaged in multiple parts to ensure that no damage or scuffing encounter your knobs prior to installation.
If you choose the utmost quality for your locks, continuing that choice to the handles, locks or no locks, is a no brainier. These knobs are beautiful, solid, and smooth. Recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris EXPENSIVE but a high quality product.
These door knobs are of high quality. They are solid/heavy and the knobs themselves are larger than most. Everyone who takes ahold of one in opening/closing a door notices right away and comments on the quality. I highly recommend these, if you have the money to buy them (you get what you pay for). The Smart Key option is cool and convenient also.
