Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rob1234 Excellent valve for the price
Installing this valve was straightforward enough. The only real difficulty I had was installing stringers between studs to mount the valve on. This was on a complete remodel of a bathroom and I had to rebuild all of the plumbing from scratch. As far as the valve itself goes, the instructions were clear and concise, the apparent QUALITY of the valve is good, and I had no issues with leaking or poorly bored/molded parts. I hesitate to say "rock solid" because I haven't tested it against a rock, but it's a good size and weight that FEELS like it'll last a very long time. I did notice when I took the valve out of the box that there were some superficial scratches on the outside of the valve body, but no one but me will ever see those few minors scuffs, so I don't care. The model I got was the PEX model and the barbs were clean. If there is a complaint to be given, I'd have to say that the plastic mud/plaster 'thing' felt a little flimsy. It survived the install so it served its purpose, but I did spend a little extra time babying it so that I wouldn't break it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beastmode Great shower valve for the price, Great shower valve period.
Valve is solid. First time installing something like this. Must put teflon tape on the threads or it will leak. I had to take the fittings off the valve and tape it because I didn't and it was dripping. After I taped it, it was perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer High quality product
Could use a better manual, but this is a high quality product. I had never built a shower before, and I figured this out, so I would say it's an easy install. It all feels high quality and with the trim in place, operates very smoothly - better than any other shower I've had before. I wouldn't be surprised if it lasted 40 years without any issues.
