Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer lasted a long time but parts are hard to get
I bought this in brushed nickel in 2003, and have had no issues until march 2014, when the hot water cartridge stopped moving. It was clogged up with hard water minerals and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did because I live in a hard water state.
Removing the handle and the nut was fairly easy. I cleaned up the cartridge with vinegar, and it works but I would have liked to replace the whole thing.
For all of their faucets I think Home Depot needs to list part numbers so you can know which to order and also, they need to make them available.
I also need a new aerator, but if they discontinue this color, I worry how will I get a replacement?
Otherwise, installation of the faucet is straightforward. A handy man installed mine, but after installing a kitchen faucet, I would not have any qualms installing this lav faucet now. Live and learn.
The brushed nickel in my opinion is the best looking, but they are discontinuing it. If you have a small sink, these 4" on a base work great.
Please note: the photo is before I took it apart, cleaned the cartridge and cleaned the faucet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DYIer Nice looking combination of satin and brass for a great price
I bought this exact faucet about 10 years ago and it wore extremely well, I had no problems with the finish pealing as other reviewers had. I remodeled that bathroom in the last several weeks and only decided to replace the faucet because of some corrosion at the spout and the 'brass' drain was looking alittle tired. It was inexpensive enough for me to have everything brand new. I did a search for other satin nickel and brass combinations but there is VERY little to choose from and VERY expensive. Is it the best quality faucet, of course not, but I am perfectly happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beaverdog Looks more expensive than it is...
Little price for such a beautiful faucet. It is of good quality and I'm very happy with it. It's guaranteed not to rust-peel-tarnish, so if it ever did, Home Depot would make it right..so I'm not concerned about that...as a few others experienced peeling after a year... In the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy my beautiful bargain.

I understand that this is not a high dollar faucet, but I liked the look and it looks great in my bathroom. However, it is corroded underneath the finish and the finish is flaking off. This started about a year after we installed it. I definitely would not recommend this product.

Wow! The chrome is falling off on this model after 6 months. I know this is not the top of the line faucet. However, I expected it to get through to my son's next birthday.

We had the same problem as the other reviewers. Within less than a year, the baseplate started bubbling and peeling. Fortunately, Home Depot had great customer service and provided a refund of the costs.

I also had the same problem with peeling after about a year or so. Would not recommend at all. I am remodeling again and will not choose another Glacier Bay product.
