This faucet is simple, functional, and as advertised. It looks great and works well. My super installed the faucet with no problems. It's a bit shorter than the faucet I replaced so that's my only complaint about it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ColleenK Difficult to Find Center
This has been my kitchen faucet for over 2 years and I've been very disappointed in this product. It's difficult to find center when turning off the flow, and it usually ends up dripping until I play with it and get it into a position that is not on center. Even after 2 years of practice, 3 out of 4 times, I turn it to the wrong "off" position. It feels and looks like it was made cheaply and I wish I would have spent more money to get a better product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by daveflyer Beautiful faucet, easy as pie to install
My 85-year-old father-in-law needed a new faucet. His "pull-out" sprayer faucet kept binding up at the base and loosening up at the pull-out. With a one-hole sink, finding the right faucet was a challenge. This one was perfect! First, it has a collar at the base, so the swivel won't lime up and bind up quickly. Second, it's low profile enough that it doesn't get in the way of the window behind the sink. And finally, the spout is fully compatible with the small add-on aerators that turn to spray with a simple pull. It comes with hoses attached. It took just a few minutes to install. Works great. Looks fantastic!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by William A gentler flow faucet
As shown in the attached picture, the Collins Single Handle Faucet from Delta is on the left side of the picture. It is my second faucet in addition to the pull-down faucet with shower in the middle. I used the pull-down faucet for a quite a while before installing the second faucet. I needed to connect my water filter to the aerator joint of the faucet whenever I use the water filter. The pull-down faucet does not have the right diameter for my water filter connector and the shower head can't be removed like simple aerator. I finally found the Collins Single Handle Faucet that fits the bill perfectly. Its aerator is very easy to remove by hand once I loosened it.
My first impression was that the water felt gentle when I washed my utensils in the kitchen sink. Unlike the middle pull-down faucet, it does not create a lot water splatter while washing in the kitchen sink. The gentle flow of water is a result of a slower water flow and thus it uses less water overall.
I didn't install the Collins single handle faucet myself. I needed to get the plumbers to do it for me because they had to take out all of the existing configuration of copper pipes and reconfigured it to fit in the second faucet with separate emergency shutdown valves. It cost me a little over $500 just to install not to mention about the cost of purchasing the faucet. Anyway, the plumbers did a great job to put in a new copper pipes for cold and hot water supplies to the new and existing faucets in addition to the cold water supply to the ice maker for my refrigerator. As you can see, it is a rather complicated configuration under the sink to do it myself.
Another thing I like about the Collins stainless steel faucet is that it matches the color of my other stainless steel faucet nicely as seen in the picture attached.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gran Great faucet!
We wanted a simple faucet for our farm house kitchen that would look nice with our granite countertops and this faucet fits the bill perfectly. It does not have any of the issues we've read so much about with the pull down faucets.

I received the faucet in good order and a timely manner but when I opened the box I was surprised to see the plastic-type hoses which were permanently attached to the faucet. They were about three feet long and not flexible without much effort. My plan was to attach the faucet to my braided stainless steel lines but that would have been impossible. The plastic lines were so stiff that they would take up considerable space in the cupboard under the sink. I may be wrong, but I just did not trust using this type of line in my kitchen. In fact, until there is quite a history of success, I would not trust these lines at all. Why they are so stiff is beyond my comprehension. You have to basically bend them forcibly into position and then they spring back. I took them back to Home Depot and got a refund.

It looks nice, and works well. I just think it is expensive for what it is. I don't know why it is more expensive for a one hole application than a 3. It doesn't make sense.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 123XYZ Not For Single Hole Installation
If you need a single hole installation faucet, do NOT buy this one. After I bought one of these Delta Collins single hole installation faucets and installed it, it kept coming loose to the point where it was not usable. I contacted Delta customer service numerous times and no one seemed to know what to do. I was told something different every time and nothing that was recommended worked. I was finally sent a new faucet, contacted a plumber to install it and the plumber would not guarantee that it would not come loose again. I returned the faucet to Home Depot and bought another brand which is working just fine.
