Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vincent integral stops are horrible
the integral stop design makes no sense. It's a pressure sensitive spring loaded valve rather than a simple stop valve. Therefore it's more prone to failure. It took me months to figure out this is why my shower's not producing hot enough water. I replaced the 1225 cartridge and the balance spool at a total cost of about $75 to no avail. Finally I started playing around with the stops and was able to get hot water, but only temporarily. I'm at the point now where I'm simply going to remove the spring and washer parts, and/or try to obtain the simple cap to remove the stop valves completely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Runner Excellent quality valve with shut off stops.
Moen makes a good valve that will last many years and you won't get stuck with parts unavailability. The shut off stop screws on the left and right enable you to change the valve components later without shutting off the water to the whole house. The Kinsley trim pieces that we got to go with it are very nice looking. I don't know what some people are thinking when they put a fancy European shower valve in. What is one to do years later when the design is changed and you can't get replacement parts anymore? We had to special order this relatively standard item, as it was not stocked in the store. It took 8 days to arrive. I paid $93.49 for this Moentrol valve in July of 2013 and the price as of 10/18/2013 is currently $122.21. A 30% price increase. When we have a large project, it is important to stick to a timeline and keep costs under control. 8 days shipping is excessive. I would recommend this valve, but Home Depot needs to do better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheHandyman Like the Stops for future catridge replacements
As we prepared to soldier this valve in place, all the components with o-rings came out well and then went back in place nicely. The hot water stop for the handle worked nicely for the kids. Would definitely recommend this valve!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suki Gorgeous, real brushed nickel, easy install
Moen makes such quality products. I especially love the tub spout that came with my kit. very modern and matches my marble tile perfectly! I purchased a shower arm extension and mounted the shower head tall and I love it. Sadly, my Kohler shower doors are taking months to arrive but my BA will be gorgeous when it's all done. I just wish the shower wand modern kits weren't so expensive as it's a luxury I had to forego. They are very well made and in California, make it simple to conserve water. I love it and I bought all of the accessories to go along with it and they're also sturdy and REAL brushed nickel. Thanks Moen!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pg Expensive and does not look like pictures
The trim kit is too expensive for what it is. It juts out way too much and I had to purchase a separate 60$ cover plate from moen to make it look ok. The screws are still visible unlike the picture. The stop tube is difficult to install as it has no give unlike the one I replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PB Solid, beautiful
Style fits perfectly in our modern bathroom. The set is all metal which is a huge advantage in my opinion over other similarly priced sets that included plastic parts. The shower head is great--nice design, good spray--rain style. The spout is likewise beautiful. I do agree with other reviewers that the pull up knob to divert the flow from the spout to the shower head feels fragile, and you have to hold it up for a few seconds for it to catch. The faucet itself is very nice. You adjust the water temperature and then pull out on the body of the faucet to start water flowing. This took some getting used to. Overall, we like this very much, and the styling outweighs any drawbacks so far. be sure to buy the valve or you can't use the trim set! It adds a significant cost to the purchase but is necessary.
