Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jimihal Inferior product, inflated price
In wanting to replace the shower faucet hardware in our stand-up shower in our Master Bathroom, I had wanted to replace the original h/w with Kohler, a brand that I have had great success with and find their products to be of very high quality in general.
However, given that the inside the wall cartridge was Moen, I essentially HAD to replace the faucet h/w with another Moen product, unless of course I wanted to cut a hole in the opposing wall and replace the entire infrastructure. There was nothing wrong with the cartridge, just the fact that the faucet metal was peeling.
So I replaced the Moen h/w, which was $100 more expensive than the equivalent Kohler h/w, and frankly the quality and even the design doesn't come close. I ended up replacing the Moen showered that came with the h/w, and replaced that with a Kohler showered, which produces a far greater shower experience than the Moen showered did.
I don't understand how Moen can get away charging so much more for their inferior products, unless they are confident that so many builders use their stuff and then the homeowners are basically "stuck" to replace like for like, especially when some infrastructure work is involved.

Ordered and received in two days -- fortunately HD has a Distribution center located near. Trim Kit was as expected.

My handyman installed it and said it was fairly simple.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonTaylor The reason I give this valve 5 stars is due to many years of experience installing them for my customers. It's reliable, easy to use, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. If the cartridge fails, Moen will send you a completely new cartridge at no charge. How cool is that? This valve has exceeded my expectations. In fact, I just completed a product review regarding this shower valve here: http://www.legendaryhs.com/moen-positemp-shower-valve-review-licensed-plumber/

This might have worked well but it wasn't threaded, so it couldn't be installed.

Comes with an adapter for thicker walls, which the plumber would have found helpful if he'd noticed. Perfect fit for the Moen faucet.

Converting from traditional 2 handles to a valve at standing height. The Temp. needed to be adjusted warmer. Easy adjustment. Solid feel when turning the valve handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solseeker1 Solidly built, smooth operation
This brass valve maintains temperature of water even when someone else in the house flushes the toilet. The instructions for installation are clear and there are videos available on U-Tube that can also be helpful. The one I bought has fittings for soldering brass piping to the ports. You can also get it with threaded fittings or barbed for direct connection with the modern PEX type piping. Ask your plumber which one would be best for you before you buy. My plumber used the copper piping to make a secure mounting before connecting the PEX pipes. Follow the instructions to flush the lines after installation to save the cartridge.
