Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SWong Decent ball valve if you cannot get a Watts branded ball valve
Recent bathroom renovation was just completed and as a precaution we swapped out the old 35 year old compression type sink supply shutoff valves with these quarter turn ball valves. Could have forgone replacement however this is cheap insurance on a very expensive bath renovation. Old shutoff valves all eventually leak and the symptom typically shows as a slight drip which is noticeable when you eventually replace neoprene washers or in a worse case scenario a complete replacement of the faucet fixture. Our fixture was no different so "out with the old and in with the new" valves. So far they work flawlessly however time will tell...next review hopefully 10 years from now

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MarkS Poor quality control?
I bought two of these, for my bathroom sink. After installing them, one of them didn't stop the flow of water completely!
It's a very slow leak, but since it's just a shutoff valve, which will only be used to turn off the water in case I want to change the faucet, or a part in the faucet, I think I can live with it. The hassle of removing it, driving back to Home Depot, waiting on the return line, finding another one -- if they have it, because I got the last two they had a day ago -- and home again, and re-installing it, just doesn't seem worth it.
But, the bottom line is that I'm very disappointed in this product.

Works as expected. Survived being removed and re-soldered for a second time.

1/4 Turn valves are great!! You always know when the valve is open or closed by just that quarter turn. Never have to worry about over turning the valve and it breaking as you do with others. I have them under every sink and all 3 toliets in my home.
