Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by netdawg Looks good, bit challenging to install
This utility sink is much better looking than my old chrome sink that was rusting and LOOKED out-of-place in a mostly white/cream colored laundry room. The Tahiti goes great with marble top of my utility cabinet and the white/cream color washer dryer. The sink material is superior and glossy. In short, looks good. HOWEVER - here are some things to note and be aware of BEFORE you run off and buy this model:
1. The sink is NOT perfectly rectangular. Specifically, the upper left and right corners of this sink are SLIGHTLY rounded (arched) inward, if that makes any sense. So if you have an old sink of the same dimensions (25 X 22), like I did, and there is already a rectangular cavity in utility cabinet, this sink may not perfectly cover it, leaving a small or large gap at the top edge. Luckily my gap was small enough for caulk, epoxy resin to fill. Again, the 25 inch dimension is exact for the lower edge of the sink but the upper edge is SLIGHTLY LESS than 25 because of the curvature. Make sure you account for that.
2. The threaded bolts and clips for the mounting points (see installation guide to know what I am referring to), are sub standard. First, the bolts are made of plastic - they just would not go all-in and if you force it - they just get stuck. Had to run over to the hardware store to get metal bolts that were are slightly shorter. The clips are not long enough, may need to get replacements.
3. Lastly, remember this is likely going to be MUCH deeper than your old sink. In which case, plumbing below the sink may need to be adjusted. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. My MacGyver handyman made it look easy, but it involved quite a bit of imagination and hard work to get all that done down there.
4, Don't waste money on faucet with pop-up drain feature. This sink is simply too deep for that to be practical.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jms7881785 Great laundry room sink
The size is perfect from my uses: hand washing & soaking laundry, washing the big roaster after big family meals. Clean up after painting projects. The finish is superb with a nice gloss. The specks in the design of the finish will "hide" those imperfections that occur over the years. Both our plumber & builder are impressed with how it looks; specifically the finish. Very reasonable priced.

Very easy to install. The ability to choose the size of the facet and place the sprayer on either side was very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LinDIY Wonderful sink-would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of buying a laundry sink
I've had this sink for a few years now and it still looks as good as it did the day I bought it. It hasn't stained or cracked even though I've rinsed out paint trays and all sorts of items that would have stained my previous sink. It was easy to install too. I do put a coat of marine wax on it yearly just in case, but would not need to. I would not hesitate one minute to purchase it again. I have been so impressed that I just purchased the smaller size for my daughters new house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RB01 Exactly as promised - perfect for what we need
Really nice laundry sink, very easy to install, exactly as other reviews had said. The top width is indeed slightly narrower than the bottom, but we knew this from other reviews and it works fine for our previous cut-out. Great that there are pre-countersunk hole centers for any type and size of faucet and side-hose or side-soap configuration.
