This faucet is well designed with an interesting mounting approach. The main faucet body that attaches to the sink top has threading on the portion that extends below the countertop. A sturdy brass bracket threads up to the underside of the countertop. Screws thread through either side of the bracket and contact the countertop. Tightening the screws further secures the faucet.
The on/off touch system involves a solenoid that plumbs-in between the water sources (hot and cold) and the sprayer head. A plastic battery box containing six batteries attaches to the solenoid and can be mounted against the wall under the sink. Touching metal portions of the faucet causes the solenoid to activate and control water flow.
The faucet is very nicely finished and has smooth handle action. The instructions are good with pictures to aid the process.
This is a nice kit.

This is a very nice looking faucet. The materials are high quality and the finish is nice. The curvature of the faucet is less than some faucets - which my wife likes because it splashes less than our old faucet with a larger radius. The valve and sprayer work nicely, with a positive shut-off.
Installation was straight forward and simple. The only difference between this and a non-touch faucet is the installation of the ground (which clips to the faucet) and the battery pack (which hangs from a screw). Directions are easy to follow and installation was less than an hour.
The faucet this replaced was another touch faucet - the old touch faucet only worked with cold water. This faucet is nice because it dispenses any temperature you set. It also has a light at the base to indicate water temperature (blue for cold and turns shades of violet to indicate warmer water).
I gave this 4 stars because the touch function is a little unpredictable. Often I have to touch it several times before it shuts off, so I end up using the manual valve instead. Additionally, if the manual valve is left in the closed position, the touch function does not work. So the first thing you need to do is open the valve (which defeats the purpose of having a touch faucet).
Overall I do like the faucet and would give it 5 start if the touch functionality worked better.

I was nervous on how a highly used fixture would hold up to use and abuse when it appeared to my the "touch"technology would be sensitive. It has lived up to the Delta reputation and delivers on performance. I am not a skilled plumber but was able to get through the installation with no major problems. The instruction are a combination of Ikea like pictures but have the benefit of writing. Overall they were clear enough, but I found myself re-reading sections just to make sure I go it.
My sink has three holes, so you will notice I purchased the additional base cover. This is a must if you also have three holes. There were no instructions on how to incorporate the base into the system and I was nervous with it being the first step---I didn't want to make a simple mistake only to discover it after everything was hooked up.
Performance wise the faucet is great. The LED indicator for temperature is a great touch. My only critique, which comes more from a place of I wasn't aware this was the case, is that in order for the touch on/off to work, the faucet handle has to be in the open position. It makes sense now that I am aware, but it was a surprise at first.

I hope some of the information provided helps someone decide on this faucet. And, provides some answers to questions that may be in the back of the mind. I was hesitant on getting this faucet not based on this model, but some of the reviews on the kitchen faucet with the same technology. The instructions provided are very clear, and every step contains a detailed pictorial. Save your instructions after installation, they provide valuable information.
The faucet is a great faucet, and certainly the technology of touch is a great asset to have along with an aesthetically pleasing compliment in the kitchen. We are using the bar faucet in the kitchen. No more getting the handle all messed up when cutting up chicken, meats, vegetables, or my wife's main complaint when mixing meatloaf by hand! You don't have to worry about accidentally leaving the faucet on should you an emergency arise, which takes you away from your task. This faucet automatically shuts off after 4 minutes! Although we do not allow our cat in the kitchen, it has been caught on the counter in the past. I think it finally learned it's lesson when it brushed against the faucet and turned it on. The cat hasn't been in the kitchen, let alone near the counter since.
Some highlights: The attached PEX supply lines to the faucet are of generous lengths. They are marked for hot/cold (see picture). The faucet is not as tall as the kitchen Touch20 Trinsic (this can be a plus should you have a window or sill you don't want to block). There is an of/off LED indicator on the faucet for battery low. There is a 5 year warranty on the electronics and parts (batteries not warrantied). This faucet came with the 6 batteries needed. There are 2 settings, one for stream and the other for spray.
I have included a few pictures in comparing the height to the Delta I had in the kitchen. Also so you can see on the tape measure for reach/height.
The bottom line is, this is a nice faucet and I would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLO1951 Excellent addition to our bar
This faucet looks great and especially arctic stainless steel finish . We installed it in our and very happy with it. The installation was a breeze, but was done by our friend.The touch technology is great convenience and works perfectly.You need either "AA" or"C" batteries, it is really up to you. What is a big plus that you can turn it off and use it as a regular faucet. The Delta's Magna Tite pull down sprayer works flawlessly. In conclusion I would like to say that it is a very high quality faucet, but we expected nothing less from Delta.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remodeledbathroom Great features and design
This faucet is functional and aesthetically pleasing. I could not be happier with the overall package. First, it was easy to install. The directions are detailed and they also have good information even after installation. Second, the tapping feature comes in much more handy than you think it will. No longer do you have to worry about water dripping on your faucet and leaving water stains or having dirty hands/ hands full. Seriously, that feature will solve many of your problems. Third, it has an automatic shut off feature. After 4 minutes the faucet will shut off meaning that you don't have to worry about kids (or forgetting yourself). This item is full of features and does not disappoint.

I recommend this product with a caveat: don't get this faucet if you're nervous about the water running when you're gone. I live in California where there is a draught and I have a fear of wasting water and receiving a big bill. So I don't leave the faucet in on mode, which means that you have to turn the faucet on to use the touch sensor. But that shouldn't be a problem if you know you're going to be using the sink while cooking or cleaning.
That being said, it works great. It was easy to install. It is battery powered with a automatic shutoff after 4 minutes if you happen to forget to shut it off. You just need to touch the faucet to turn on or off the flow of water as long as the faucet is turned on at the tap.
This is the bar size which I ordered by mistake. This means it is slightly shorter than a regular tall faucet. I think it would be perfect for a kitchen island with a sink.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by He1990 amazing product
I really could have used a new kitchen sink and this one came in handy at the right time.
There are so many kitchen sinks available now a days that it could get confusing as to what we may be needing. I am very happy with this one. It was easy to install and its easy to use. I like the height factor since I have some pots that originally didn't fit along side my previous sink.
