Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lowell Easy Installation, Wonderfully Lightweight Plastic
This was my second kitchen faucet installation of the day and it was much easier than the first. The kit included a long "socket" style wrench that allowed me to easily tighten the faucet into the sink. The other parts snapped together securely with no effort. The directions were helpful and didn't leave out any important steps or parts.
This faucet is very light weight owing to the large amount of plastic used. This will probably lead to a short life span for this unit, but I fear that's the new normal with plumbing parts. If you want the good stuff, spend more money.
I rated this unit highly because it's price is easy to take and the installation was easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JTNYC Works well as advertised
I chose this faucet for the following reasons: I needed something asap so it had to be in stock, it had to have a stainless finish, had to have a pull out sprayer, had to have decent reviews, and it had to be priced reasonably. It fits all the criteria. Others have complained about the use of plastic but I don't mind as much. The base and on/off handle are all metal, but the sprayer/faucet is a plastic that is spot resistant AND matches seamlessly with the metal. The plus is it's much lighter -- the downside would be if it is not durable. Since it's been only 6 weeks, I cannot judge that yet. All in all, it is a good value for the price.

We replaced a premium bronze faucet that did not match our kitchen well with this Moen faucet. Having used spot-resistant Moen faucets in the bathroom, we know this is the only type of finish we would want around the kitchen sink.
Installation was fairly easy, and all required components and tools are included. I had a much harder time removing the old faucet than installing the new one. The only challenge I encountered is the attached faucet supply lines, as the hot water valve was an inch too far away for the line to reach. A 16" line was available at my local Home Depot for a few dollars.
The other valuable accessory we found at Home Depot is a generic stainless hole cover, which allowed us to installed the new faucet without purchasing a soap dispenser that we will eventually add in this location. Unfortunately the spot-resistant soap dispensers cost nearly as much as the entire faucet, so that will have to be a later upgrade.
The water pressure is noticeably less than our old inefficient faucet, yet the sprayer pressure is much stronger than the old sprayer. Because of the strong spray, the reduced water flow is not an issue for us, and actually helps our 40 gallon water heater better keep up with evening demand. The only inconvenience is that it takes nearly a minute longer for hot water to reach the faucet when first turned on. For comparison, our bathroom faucets are all 1 gpm and the showers are 2 gpm, so 1.5 is a good flow rate for the kitchen.
As other reviews note, the sprayer head is plastic. It feels sturdy and seems to work great, but isn't heavy enough to seat all the way in the faucet after having pulled it out. It goes in fine with a little help, but I keep finding it left with a 1/8" gap after it has been used. Not a big deal, but a minor drawback. Also, if the water is turned off while using the sprayer, the switch reverts to normal faucet flow. Lastly, make sure you have sufficient clearance for the handle to lift up, as it requires about 1/2" clearance behind to fully rotate while turned on. Our counter is close enough that the faucet does hit when exactly centered and fully on, so we have to use caution when changing temperature while the water is on.
Overall, this is a good value that looks a lot more expensive than it is, and seems sturdy enough despite a few minor design flaws and obvious cost cutting measures.

Initially thought it was a nice faucet, liked the features and ease of use. But after only a year the faucet started leaking and we thought it was our pipes at first. We then noticed the hose was leaking behind the swivel ball at the connection! I messed with it a little to see where it was leaking from and the leak is now horrible. I'll be bring this back to Home Depot and finding a different company to buy a faucet from. I expect this from a $35 faucet not one that was over $125.

I'm glad I didn't read the negative reviews before I bought this one. One person said there's low pressure and the screen keeps clogging. You can't really blame the faucet...perhaps your water? The review titled "Buyer Beware" is from someone who may not have installed it correctly (or read the instructions). It's not held in place with one plastic part; there's a thick piece of metal that affixes it to the sink. "The whole spout is the pull out sprayer which makes it very flimsy..." doesn't make sense. The sprayer fits just fine. Another complaint is that the supply lines are "too small." They're actually longer than most other supply lines...at least 24" long. And complaining that the spray head is plastic...well, most faucets have plastic spray heads. In fact, there are many faucets whose entire body is plastic (like Delta). At least this one has a steel body and handle. This is much sturdier than the previous model (American Standard) I had to return.

Our plumber told us to buy a MOEN for our kitchen. I thought this price would give us a decent faucet. My husband installed it with no problems but he was shocked that it is only held in place with one plastic part. I was surprised that almost the whole spout is the pull out sprayer which makes it very flimsy. Mine even fell out of it's holder when I moved it from side to side a couple of times. It feels so cheap and I expect that we will have to replace it within a year. Very disappointed with MOEN on this one. Still trying to figure out if we should just return it and try something sturdier but they just don't seem to make things like they used to and it's not easy to tell the quality with how they are displayed up on the wall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by STEVE Cheap Stainless Coated Plastic.
This cheap impostor of a faucet was a huge disappointment. I replaced the moen that i had
with this piece of junk. My old faucet was 20 times heavier and made with REAL stainless steel and copper and brass feed lines / fittings. I got 10 years out of it. This junk there selling now is made with CHEAP IMPORTED plastic. poor quality . I guess you have to spend 400 bucks today instead of 139 to get real stainless product. BUYER BEWARE ON THIS ONE. Home depot would do well to drop this from its product line.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnR I'm not particularly happy
Two things why I did not end up liking this faucet; one it does not connect well to the sink. A month or so in on ours, the whole base plate started turning when we turned the faucet. I tightened the nut underneath three times, and finally used silicone to attach the base to the sink. I believe this could be an easy design fix. Secondly, the part of the faucet where the spray handle and the neck of the faucet meet broke on the underside on ours after about a year. It may have been our kids, but if you have kids, you may experience this too. I think some reinforcement in that area would be a great design improvement.
