Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FishLady Disappointed in the Smart Key technology
I thought I would be able to use the smart key so I would not have to have all my house keys re-made. That is not the case unless your keys are Kwikset keys which mine were not. And after reading some of the reviews about people being locked out of their houses because they had the smart key throughout their home, I decided to just leave all of my other locks as normal. Very disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brainstewn Nice Sturdy Feel and Look
The Vedani Venetian Bronze Entry Lever has a nice look and feel but certainly not as solid as locks four ot eight times the money. With that said I would buy these again because of the re-key feature, the feel is solid and you can flip the handle for different swing. The key to flipping the handle is 1) unscrewing the allen screw, 2) removing the handle and cover, 3) removing the c-clip, 4) turning the key-way around, 5) installing the c-clip, 6) removing the allen screw, 7) inserting the allen wrench in the small hole opposite the allen screw, 8) reversing the allen screw and placing on the wrench, 9) threading the allen screw back in, 10) installing the cover and handle to fit your swing.

Beautiful and functional! I replaced the bottom-of-the-line round doorknobs that came with my house. These new Kwikset handles are not only more attractive, they are also much easier to use since you only need to apply downward or upward pressure on the handle. This makes it possible to open a door with your hands full. The Kwikset handle sets are pretty easy to install, only a screwdriver needed (preferably electric - doorknob screws take a lot of turning to get in and out.) The keyed handle sets are easily re-keyed with no need for a locksmith. Instructions are clear and they have made it about as simple as it can be made. Very happy with the result.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by newhomeowner sent back two keyed entry set faulty manufacturing
We just built a new house and put Vendani throughout the interior. The style is modern but the quality is on the cheap side for the basic bedroom and bath door handles, nonetheless they work. Do not order the key entry set. The first one ordered was installed by my builder and the latch would not open once closed. We had to remove the entire handle to get into our garage. My builder took it apart and found it was defective. We returned the set and ordered another online and the exact same thing happened again. Frustrating. I am now looking for a different style even though the handle will not match the rest of the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jj0926 Love this! Looks great!
I didn't install it, the contractor who installed my doors did, but it seemed to go on quiet easy. Looks aweseom!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nate Very happy with the product
I ordered the product online without seeing in person. I was very impressed with the quality when it arrived. It's a very good value when you factor in the quality and high end feel. I Decided to purchase replacements for the rest of my interior and exterior doors in my home.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EightOfEight nice design, but be prepared to wipe off the fingerprints!
Got this as a replacement for a brass-colored doorknob installed by a previous homeowner. I liked the satin chrome finish because I thought it would look better than the brass next to my chrome-wrapped retro kitchen counter. It definitely doesn't clash like the brass, but I can see fingerprints on it constantly which is kind of a bummer. I do like the lever better than a knob and I'm sure I'll appreciate it even more when arthritis kicks in. Installation was easy -- took about 15 minutes, using the existing holes. I used the SmartKey feature to re-key it to match the new deadbolt. It took a few tries but eventually worked. Unfortunately, the key really sticks -- in both the deadbolt and the knob. I'm hoping that won't be an issue after it's been used regularly for a few months. I also have to shut the door really hard now in order for it to stay closed. I think that's the fault of the person who cut the holes for the previous doorknob, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHuc I love everything about the handles
The handles are just what I wanted. The only negative is the length of time it has taken to get the order. I'm still awaiting the second half of the order that was placed on 3-15-13.
