Rated 5 out of 5Â by Salem12 Great product
I picked this product for the quality you expect from a Kohler product and the modern styling of the faucet. I have not been disappointed. It has great water pressure and the button to toggle between spray and stream is easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by superduper Great result, nice performance, a bit tricky to install
Product very nice; very pleasant operation in 'stream' mode, and a bit forceful in 'spray'. As others have said, the spray gets a bit 'splashy', but great for driving stuff off the plates and glasses. The height of the head above the sink makes it easy to get big pots underneath, and makes it simple to work underneath.
Installation was a bit trickier than I've been used to with other faucets. Needed to cut off some plastic piece on the hose (didn't know what the items was for), and the weight was crimped on that had to be removed for it to fit through my install hole. Thus, I needed anther way to reattach the weight (used a hose clamp that I had to provide). Getting the small nuts on the hold down studs was a bit tricky as well. Overall, not difficult, but I've had much easier installs (including the Kohler product that I took off to install this one).
The finished result was very pleasing.
Install of the soap dispenser was easy after I cut the hole, which was pretty simple with the right tool also from THD.

Before I rant on the negatives, let me point out that there are some "pros" as well.
Pros - Looks great, works well (installed today, so time will tell). If you plan to have a plumber install your faucet, then by all means, you can stop reading. If you plan to install it yourself and you are not highly experienced at mechanical work, then read on.
Cons - Design, design, design. Please note that I am not talking about the design of the internal workings of the faucet, i really have no idea about that. My criticism is that this faucet was not designed to be easy to install. One could say that Kohler makes no such claim. However, the fact that it was sold Home Depot, a do it yourself store, would suggest that it should be at least a consideration.
1. First off, the instructions are terrible. I believe they assume a plumber is going to install the faucet and there is no need to spell anything out. They have no video online showing how to install.
2. The weight for the hose must be removed prior to installation and then put back on. I had to destroy the clamp holding in place to do this. I used a zip tie afterward. If there is another way, it was not detailed in the instructions nor was it intuitive by looking at the faucet.
3. The design for securing the faucet is poor (and seems kind of cheap).
4. THE WORST: The absolute worst part of all this? It is so very easy to overcome! A better set of instructions, a quick online video and some thought into a few things that must be dealt with by the home owner (i.e. there is some weird plastic thing on one of the hoses that must be cut off, maybe its an RFID chip for anti-theft?) and there would be absolutely nothing negative that could be said. Proper communication can make up for a lot.

I replaced a Price Pfizer with this faucet. Heads up: 1) the design of the faucet, with opening laterally to increase water flow, is impeded by the soap dispenser's height, assuming you have standard openings. So, dispenser must be placed opposite side of water control handle on faucet. 2) faucet and associated water connectors did not fit through the standard opening in my countertop; it had to be disassembled to remove the weight on the pull out hose, so everything else could fit and then weight replaced.
That being said, I am thus far very happy with the faucet and it's functionality, especially the pause button on the sprayer.

I have had 2 of these, 1 in a previous house, and installed both, took about 20 minutes install (already removed old faucet), and another hour getting longer connector hoses. Install went faster as I ditched their plastic wrench tightener and used my Gearwrench path thru sockets.
Replaced a 10 year old delta, and this is miles ahead. Just a note, I had to return the first one I bought from HD, as someone had used it, and handle was broken off, water was still in it, so make sure the box is sealed before you buy.
