Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by carlreich Do not buy, I bought two and both are junk within five years.
I bought two of these in June 2010 because they are Kohler and the best that were in stock. I put one in my main kitchen sink and one in the island sink. The one under the main kitchen sink started leaking, luckily I was under the sink moving things around because it was a small leak and would have ruined everything before it showed. I remove the drain and the nut that holds the PVC drain pipe to the drain is corroded so much that it failed. I was shocked after five years of household use it failed. I have had many houses over the years and have never had this happen with even builder grade parts. I went to the Home Depot and was looking at another Kohler to replace this one and realized that the one that is on display has a heavy brass nut and the one for sale has a cheesy chrome plated nut. Mine is a cheesy nut as well.
The drain in my island sink is almost never used and this one the finish started coming off within two years. Both were purchased together cleaned with the same cleaners so not sure why this happened. I have really nice house and after 22 years in the military I know how to run a tight ship. It is unfortunate that if I were to hold inspection in my kitchen I would fail myself for both drains. I would like a response from Kohler if possible.

Looks great out of box. Finish wears off very quick. I lost the o-ring to the drain 3 months after install, replacements don't stay on well. Flange for the plunger separated from the strainer after about 18 months, fitting will be difficult to reseat. Now it's totally useless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by riverratinIndiana Beautiful look horrible design
DO NOT BUY I had two of these in a previous house and they did not hold water well. I moved to another house and for some crazy reason purchased this after I purchased a Kohler cast iron sink.This one does not hold water at all. No matter how hard I try I have even pushed down on the strainer knob and still does not hold water.
Horrible product and way over priced!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ernie Poor durability
I liked the weight and appearance of drain and as a result I purchased even though this was more than other products, I thought that the name and quality would make up for the price. I was unaware that the warranty was only one year. Kohler was very helpful in replacing but I still have to get under sink and change.
Based on price and how fast the brushed nickle wore off, I would not recommend this product. I also would expect that this would have a life time warranty like there other products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bebird great product design
easy and secure installation.
like the design of using three screws to push the seal plate to seal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Strainer broke and finish wore off
Had this installed by a Plummer when my kitchen was redone. The knob on the strainer basket broke off after a couple of years at the weld and the silver finish wore off after a few years of cleaning. And yes, we do use cleanser on our stainless steel sink. How else do you get it clean? I will buy a cheaper all stainless steel one and replace it myself. Do not buy this overpriced junk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis Be aware of bad strainer sealing design
First the 1 3/4" o-ring on the strainer just stops sealing. Mine got slightly bigger over time, swelling and it just doesn't seal anymore. That swelling took less than a year however.
After 2 years of use, the chrome finish has worn off. The drains now look like they have the patina of a 50 year old drain. Brass and scratches. Very thin chrome plating. Do not assume abrasive cleaners were used because they most certainly were not.
It feels so good installing. Solid, precise and looks so sexy just after. Too bad there are much cheaper units that will hold water better and longer.
