The side splash is the perfect finish piece to the vanity top.

I bought this side splash at the store noticing that it was a little undersized, mainly because the color matched. Yes, the color matched well, but it is so small it looks like a joke.
The actual dimensions of the product in my hand are 2.25-inches tall, 20.75-inches long, and 0.5-inches thick. It has a 0.5-inch radius on both lower left and lower right corners. I guess that makes it a "universal" splash that can be used on left and right sides and mate nicely with the backsplash curve, but it looks funny to me to see a rounded edge at the other end where it meets the end of the vanity top.
My vanity has a 4-inch tall back splash, from the top of the countertop surface. A side splash should be nearly 4-inches tall to mate and look right with the backsplash. At 2.25-inches tall, it looks like a toy; maybe designed for something else. It is over 1.5-inches too short.
My vanity is 22-inches deep, from the wall to the front edge. The side splash should be 21.25-inches long to butt against the 0.75-inch thick back splash, and be flush with the front edge of the countertop. This one is a 0.5-inch short, which looks a little funny, but not as bad as the height issue.
And finally the 0.5-inch thickness is a surprise too. Since my backsplash is 0.75-inches thick, it seems like the side splash should be the same or similar to look right. Additionally, the drywall in my home has a bit of an angle from the corner where the vanity was installed. One reason I want to install a side splash is to cover the gap near the front of the countertop which is 0.6-inches. This piece really doesn't do the job. A 0.75-inch piece would have done the job properly.
I will comment that the piece has a nice glossy finish on all sides but the back. The onyx variations look great and the color is spot on for our top. Now if they would make it the right size, it would be great. If they did a left- and a right-hand version (one radius in one lower corner, not two), it would be perfect.
I don't think I'm being that picky to ask for the dimensions to right. They would if the specifications noted here were correct -- but they are not. So this piece goes back to HD.

It took a long time to get delivery. The color doesn't look the same as the vanity top. The contractor is yet to install it.
