Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jswobe Not granite and NOT grey, but a good looking vanity top at a good price
As the name implies ("Stone Effects") and the description says, this is not a granite sink top. It is synthetic. You can look at my pictures of the underside to see what that means. The square sink is very nice looking and provides a slight modern touch.
The color on this vanity top is listed as Kaiser Grey. As it turns out, it's actually brown, and not remotely grey. It looks much better on my medium to dark wood cabinet than on my epresso / black cabinet. Know before you buy!
The gloss finish is delicate. The instructions state to use a glass cleaner or other non-chlorine cleaner, and to avoid abrasives. This is the one significant break from real granite. It does not have the natural, rough appearance of real stone and it is much more delicate. So far, I have only used water and a paper towel and occasionally glass cleaner to wipe it down.
I would recommend this item b/c the price point is great and the stone look is nice, but just know that the color is NOT grey.

A dab of grey
I don't see Kaiser grey on the Kaiser color website, but i would say it is more of a simulated stone effect with lambswool creme, buck eye maroon, doeskin, copper dust and speedway grey.
one of the only tops with an 8" hole faucet spread.
The color grows on you! It will work as long as the coating doesn't wear out with multiple cleanings. Does anyone know how to clean this top without damaging the coating?

I loved the vanity top with matching back splash, in kaiser gray. It was the perfect piece for my bathroom remodel. However, I wish there was an option to purchase a matching side splash, or even an extra back splash you can purchase and then cut to size.

It is an eye catcher and a conversation piece. It truly complete the bathroom ambiance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrd75 beautiful vanity top 31x22 undermout
I have not installed this top yet but it is a stone top slab with an undermount sink. The top has a wide spread drilling that requires an 8in spread lav. faucet. Excellant construction that should last a long time. It also comes with a back splash.

I do like this as it looks like it could be natural stone, but it definitely has a pinkish cast to it. I unboxed it outdoors in direct sunlight and it looked grey and pink, then when it went inside, still looked grey and pink. It isn't bad, just please note the color beforehand if ordering sight unseen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smarteboy Stone effects, nice vanity top
This vanity top has a very nice finish to it. The marble does look like more expensive stone. Being that it is marble allows a little less maintenance, and a lot less cost.
Installation was a breeze on an existing 31 inch vanity. I set it on top, made sure everything looked good, then I lifted it off, installed the drain and faucet, and put it back on. A bead of silicone caulk, along with the plumbing attachments hold the vanity in place. Against the wall it stays put very well. I glued the backsplash to the wall, and caulked the joint at the bottom where it met with the countertop.
Cleaning the surface is easy with glass cleaner, and it comes clean with very little effort. The under mount sink is a big plus too, because you don't have the annoying caulk ring around the sink. Also, if water or similar spills are on the countertop, just wipe them right into the sink.
I like it, I would recommend it. Easy to install and it looks great. Your guests will think that you sent a lot more than you actually did.
