Rated 3 out of 5Â by Quinte Looks Nice But
Pro's - Solid glass with nice finished material and modern design. Allows for tile walls. Low profile base.
Con's - Bottom of door is a little too floppy with minor spray passing under.
This replaced a leaking Maxx Iris shower that was installed incorrectly by the contractor. It also simplified the drain and allowed me to properly reinforce the subfloor for the plastic base. Given that the base is plastic, I believe it requires a very solid subfloor otherwise it will feel spongy as was the case before hand. Given the sleek design of the base, I was able to place it overtop of the tile floor with a small silicone edge, rather than cutting away tile to recess.
I would also not recommend following the instructions when positioning the wall jambs. It states 1/4" from the outer base edges, which I followed to a "T" ensuring everything was square and level. Unfortunately the upper guide rail although circular does not track the base concentric as stated when installing the glass panels. When the door was installed it would not track the base correctly due to the larger rear spacer on the wider panel. After visiting 2 Home Depot stores, only 1 had it installed with a properly functioning door and the wall jambs were over 1" from the outer base edge. I would recommend that you have 2 people hold the glass panels in place with the rail & door temporarily installed to do the alignment and mark where the wall jambs need to be placed. Due to the tension and spring in the rail, I found that the jamb on the short panel side could not be installed vertically level in order to fit correctly. The unit at the store was the same.
Although the instructions recommend applying silicone to the outside edges, I also did the inside to prevent a repeat of water damage. As mentioned, there is a spray that passes under the door when in use, but it's very minor and likely a characteristic of the design.
While I do like the modern design, I would probably look at another shower with rails on both the bottom and top for better stability and ease of installation.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 2Jan33 Useless shower
This shower is useless! It looks really nice, but there is open space between the door and the base, with only a tiny rise between the bottom and the door. Once you turn your water on, the water pressure pushes the water out from under the door and over the lip of the base of the shower. Also, the connection of the base to the walls, and barriers to stop the water depends entirely on calking, which does not last over time. You will therefore always have to upkeep your shower base or you will have leaks. Even when this shower is brand new, the base leaks where it connects to the walls. We had this shower professionally installed and "fixed" twice, and it still leaks over the edge of the base. What a useless piece of junk. Total waste of money that will do nothing but frustrate you. DO NOT BUY!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Moses Product is 'miss leading'
The listing indicated that this is a "SHOWER KIT" It DOES NOT include the 'Side Pannels' Since these are not easy to locate, I decided to install tiles on the walls (additional $500.00). Packaging of itme from the factory is extreemely POOR. Shower base only taped to side of glass door carton (little protection) and arrived broken. I have been waiting for over a week to be informed if they can ship me a new base of wil I need to re-order a complete unit.
Still like the product.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Guyverix Kit has high quality parts
Note that the picture is misleading. This kit does not come with the back (wall mount) part of the enclosure. The additional kits at Home depot are also not compatible without extensive changes to what is shown in the installation guides.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by TracyB Arrived over 4 weeks later and damaged
I received the kit almost a month to the day from the date I ordered it. The shower pan had a huge crack in the corner so I had to return it to the store. They ended up throwing the ENTIRE kit it the garbage since they don't stock this item. What a waste. Also learned that a 'kit' such as this, which I expected to be complete since it is a KIT, only includes the door and pan. You have to purchase the walls separately.
This is the wording with which you are to figure that out (captured from the description of the product): "Made for tile application to personalize your shower kit with tile and design choice". That DOES not make it clear that there are NO walls. The picture shows it with walls, not tile either. It should be made clear that this is only the doors and pan. And an acrylic pan that apparently breaks easily.
