Rated 4 out of 5Â by StrongDreams Modern but non-traditional, not for every taste
As noted by other reviewers, the surface is very matte, not glossy at all like porcelain or cultured stone. It's very attractive and modern, and the square sink is not something I could find in a more traditional material, but it may take getting used to. I recommend ordering to the store and opening the box there to see what it is like in person before accepting delivery.
Although the trade name is Swan"Stone", this is basically plastic. When cutting, it smells like hot PVC. The advantages are that it is light, and since it is a solid material, even deep scratches should be able to be polished out. It is very easy to position in place. Requires a 1-1/4 inch hole saw to cut the holes for either a 4 or 8 inch faucet, but it cuts easy. You will need to use silicone caulk to attach it to a base cabinet, as other caulks won't stick to the plastic. And there is very little pitch to the sink bottom, so be sure the base cabinet is level front to back, so the sink drains properly.
I've had this installed for 2 weeks and I like it, although the matte finish still does take getting used to. Cleans up easily with Barkeeper's Friend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by terri Wonderful and decorative
Love the matte finish and the swoosh into the bowl. It added not only a functional item for our master bath, we installed 2 vanity tops, but also added a decorative item. These were just installed which was easy as drop it in, level, then add the sealant. The instructions claim that these are mostly indestructible but we shall see.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AuroraGrandma Contour Single Bowl Vanity
Our home was built in 1994, and we're in the process of renovating room-by-room. We had our contractor install the Contour single bowl vanity in white for our hall bath. Unlike the standard bowl design, this item is bold and trendy. Everyone loves it and so far, it's easy to maintain.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tark great design but dull
I'm a fan of the design, but the material is really dull. Even a matte finish would have more shine than this. Otherwise, I like the product.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by OBie Like the design, dont like the material
the design was exactly what we wanted. unfortunately, when the sink arrived, we found the finish (material) to be dull and chaulky like. the product does NOT have a gloss finish and shows marks immediately from dirty smudge or greasy hand. We were up against the wall on a timeline with the plumber, so we installed. I figure we can always change it later. I even tried to apply some mcquires car wax to see if i could pull-out some shine... no luck.
