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.

The total experience was great, from speaking to customer service in finding the right valve to receiving it within a couple days, even before it was to arrive. Furthermore, we know from experience that Moen carries a reliable product that delivers years of service. Moen stands behind their products so it something were to go wrong, they will make it right; although we have never had this problem. Once we received the valve it was soldered efficiently and quickly. The value comes with a scald free security that water can't be turned on to hot. The mechanics of the value bring smooth operation that one can place the knob/handle in the exact spot for consistency of comfortable and relaxing shower that bring vitality in the morning and relaxation for the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xxxx Expensive, but works well.
Product arrived just as described, valve body and cartridge only. Not sure what trim package we want yet, but this will take almost any from Moen. Moen is kind of expensive, but I don't ever want to open the wall again.
Install was simple enough. Take the valve guts out before applying heat to prevent damage. I only need shower so I plugged the shower outlet and ran the shower off the tub outlet for more flow.
Hot or Cold can come in from either left or right!!!!! You just flip the cartridge 180. They don’t tell you that anywhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aggie This product was easy to install.
I'm used to written installation instructions, but it seems like more products are going to the wordless, picture installation method. Such was the case with this product. It took some time trying to figure out what the pictures were trying to explain, but once I figured out which installation method was appropriate it was a pretty simple installation. The only complaint is there is no indication as to the on/off position of the handle. After getting doused the first time I turned the water back on I quickly found out I had the handle in the full open position (of course!) and not the closed position. A nice picture of the proper handle position would have been nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RWec Not bad but could be better
For a Pro I'm sure this would be an awesome product. For the DIYer the instructions are a little confusing the way they are laid out making the install cumbersome. If your mechanically inclined it's not difficult.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Remodelbath Valve is not connected with the mixer inside
My contractor told me the valve is not connected to the mixer inside. He had to uninstall the valve, fixed it and reinstalled. Construction looks good.
