We purchased the 6ft. version of this tub, online, and received exactly what we ordered. Shipping was relatively fast, and it arrived in perfect condition. Not having had a 6ft. tub before, we were a little surprised at how big that actually is!.. but for the first time ever we now have a tub long & wide enough for my 6'5' husband to relax comfortably in the bath. I am a foot shorter, but we both agree that the slope and width of this tub make it the most comfortable one we've ever used! We have paired it with a heavy bronze fixture set (4-pc.) which we mounted on the tub itself, using the extra-wide ledge area along the center-side, and so far it is just fine. There was a scramble at first to contact HD, then Kohler, to ask about the ability to mount fixtures on the tub, especially since it is pictured that way on the HD website & the reason we bought this specific model. BUT when the tub arrived, the unclear, mammoth installation-instructions stated NOT to install them on tub. Go figure!
The instructions were voluminous only because they included all kinds of safety & guarantee info in various languages and were for numerous models combined - but the model-specific specs were only a small diagram & about four written lines! Not very clear OR helpful, and caused a big delay in installation. In that regard I was highly disappointed and the reason for only a 'fair' rating in that area.
This tub does not actually hang from the surrounding deck, but sits on the floor or supports, so deck tiling will eat some of the height of the tub edge after dropping it in.
The only negative so far has to do with the width, which makes it hard to reach inside and across for cleaning. To clean the far side of the surrounding tub-deck, I have to actually climb in! This, however, I see as a trade-off for the wonderful comfort of the actual bath, which is the bottom line of the whole project to begin with. Don't know if smaller size tubs have that same quirky inconvenience.
This model is highly recommendable in my opinion, though I think the average person might prefer a slightly smaller one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by C.E. Does NOT come with hardware
The actual quality of the Tub is very good and met expectations however this is my first online purchase of a bathtub and although it is displayed with the faucet, sprayer and knobs, it neither comes with or even lists the product codes for them. If the product is displayed with an occompanying product, it should be clear that they are sold seperately and the product codes for the occompanying product SHOULD be listed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tony picture doesnt do justice
Realistically there should be something next to the tub in a picture so it can be seen for its size. The dimensions were correct but the pan (part you sit in) seems smaller (less wide) than I had thought it might be.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fromthecatskills Not what you'd expect from Kohler
Tub is fine. 6ft really includes the edging, but it is deep. Not for two people. Mostly disappointed with the flimsiness of the acrylic.
