Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRiz Good looking Surround!
Good Packaging. I opened the box and stood up all of the panels together on the floor and they stood by them self. (See Pics) Good thickness. They Gloss is Great. Love all the shelves. Going to install soon with the matching Delta Tub. I will update Pictures when I'm done.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed123 Horrendous design - eats space!
This looks sharp at the store, nice and shiny and sleek with the curves. DON'T BUY IT!!! The curves stick out into the space of the tub 6 full inches, and that's separate from the shelves - for no reason whatsoever, there are these two vertical lines and that stick out and you bump into them. It makes the shower feel claustrophobic. The curve of the whole unit also means that you can't put anything taller than about 4 inches on the lower two shelves because the wall behind the shelves curves out.
DON'T BUY THIS. We spent money on this and are now going to eat the cost of a new surround unit and the the labor to install it. Couldn't be unhappier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigBubba FOR PRICE.. A NICE PRODUCT
As a "Pro" i have installed many surrounds, tubs & showers of varying quality and price. I would put this Delta product in the mid range. Better than Aquaspec cheaper than Sterling
Pros light weight, ease of installation, lots of integrated shelving
Cons flimsy light weight construction, non tub or true interlocking, needs caulking

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaneDame Surround with super shower shelving
The pluses: This surround was pretty easy to install. I like the design of this tub/shower surround, and appreciate the ample shelving-- plenty of space for soaps, shampoos, lotions, razors, etc. The acrylic surface is easy to clean (as opposed to my old tile surfaced walls.)
The drawbacks: The only drawback I found to this surround was the overall thickness of the acrylic panels themselves-- at only 1/8"+ thick, they are, in my opinion, too flimsy to hold up to a direct-to-stud install-- I installed cement board to my studwork first, THEN adhered each panel to the board, to ensure each panel of the surround had plenty of backing.
All in all, though, a stylish surround at an affordable price-- just make certain you install some backing first!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SWong Instructions NOT perfect but is a good guide...use cementboard/durock for a better install
This Delta branded 3-piece tub surround comes with clear and easy to understand installation instructions making it a almost do-it-yourself project depending if it will be a new or bathroom refresh project. This project of mine I originally thought would be just a "mild" basement bathroom refresh with hopes a partial teardown then installation of this 3-piece tub surround...NOT TO BE! Backside, i.e., the largest of this 3-piece bathtub surround not only sounds hollow but partially flexes towards the center of this large piece. Kind of disappointed as it looks like I will not only require studs but durock/cementboard. Will update this review after the next long 3-day weekend. BTW, initial observations include the fact you do lose some tub/shower space due to the mini shelves sticking out and shelves definitely collect standing water (shelves should have been pitched slightly down to drain water).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pedrofl65 Classic 400 direct to stud
I had no choice in keeping this once I ordered it because I was desperate and needed to finish my bathroom which was delayed due to a home depot error which they made good on with a gift card, but the inconvience was greater than the value of the gift card. The style is ok but the design takes alot of space once you are inside the tub. The shelving bulges out which takes up space when you take a shower. I'm not a heavy person and I still feel like I am in a smaller space bumping into the shelves. The material seems un sturdy and if you dont have enough studs of wall behind it, it will bend in between giving the feeling that your hand will go through if you lean into it hard. These displays should be at customer floor level so they can be inspected better and the customer can make a better purchase, instead of having the displays high on a shelf where they can't be considered. This would make my shopping experience alot better and make me feel confident in the product and the business I frequent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ilikefood Really great shower surround!
The style is very nice, my husband says it looks futuristic, I don't know about that. I do know it really looks nice. I like the shelves, they hold quite a bit of products. They have eliminated my need to have one of those suspension shower shelve systems which always rust and don't look nice. The material is a little flimsy, hence my 4 bars on the quality rating. It is also a little expensive, but for all the shelves and appearance, you get what you pay for. It went up very easy, right to the studs and then we drywalled over everything. I still need to spackle and paint, so I will post pictures once that is complete.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bewildered Disappointed
I recently tried to install this product and damaged one of the side pannels. After talking to home depot and delta, I can not replace just one pannel. If I want this tub surround, I have to go buy another complete unit. I would never recommend purchasing anything that there are no pieces or parts available if you need a replacement.
