Rated 4 out of 5Â by GCPCA Nice unit
This is a good quality toilet that gives a neat finished look to the bathroom. It was a bit pricy but will last the life of the home.
Installation was straight forward using the supplied template to locate the position for the stabilizing mounts. My only concern was having to cut the flush straws to fit. This could certainly have been done at the factory.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Germis Can a toilet look beautiful?
Not sure why these reviews are so bad, but I love this toilet. It's sleek, water saving and easy to clean. Yes, my husband installed it and it was quite difficult and time consuming. He said that you must following the directions EXACTLY and do not improvise! But he got it done and it looks fantastic.
A guest came out of the bathroom and she looked a bit strange. I asked her if she was OK and she said, "This house is awesome! Even your toilet looks like a piece of artwork!"
I am ordering two more!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JRamonMc Good features, stylish design
Was very pleased with my purchase and it was worth every penny just for the styling. I have a small master bath so every component needed to make a full impact. Features are great, love the silent toilet seat and the dual flush is sure to save $$. Installation is a little out of the ordinary, but not complicated. Please be sure to make sure your water supply is 8.5" from the center or you'll have an expensive mistake!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Otto It is about the look
This toilet looks great; especially in small spaces. (We put it in a smaller master bath and it does not dominate.) There are a few things to be aware of. The interior bowl is deep and thin and holds very little water in the bottom between flushing. This makes it necessary to flush more than once in certain instances (with the full flush button). There are two flow buttons which is a nice option. It does not take a great deal of pressure to push the button down, so it should be fine for kids and arthritic hands.
Installation is tricky. No "johnny bolts" to hold it down. There are two angle brackets that are mounted on the floor inside the back section of the toilet. They are placed by using a clear plastic template, then the toilet slides over them and bolts to the brackets with small side holes. It has to be 12" - no wiggle room or space behind the tank and the wall. I am a handy person, but hired a plumber experienced with this type of toilet.
The seat isn't that comfortable, but every persons "seat" is different - they have other options beyond what comes with the toilet.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PuddinHead7104 Great looking, tricky install
We are renovating 2 bathrooms, so bought two of these and they do look great and they work well. For aesthetics, I would give it 5 stars. Thanks to the small tank, it looks lower and smaller overall than our old "standard" toilets and makes the bathroom look a little bigger. Also cool is the slow closing toilet seat that comes with it. After you get it bast about 45 degrees just let go and it slowly closes, no slamming. The out seat cover completely covers up the "ring" part, so that makes it look nice when closed.
Sitting-wise it is higher, so my 5'1'' wife can't really put her feet flat on the floor, just misses.
I gave installation 2 stars. We had our plumber do it and I was glad. It does not just slip right in when replacing an old toilet. First he had to use the template to drill holes in our marble tile because it does not use the screws or location that existed with the standard toilet. Second, we had to move the water supply. Ouch and ka-ching!!! Apparently it had to me moved farther away because of how much space the toilet took up near the base. The supply connects to a line that feeds through a hole near the bottom then into the tank. But it makes it look better ;-) Others have warned about the little rods that span between the outer flush buttons and the inner "trigger". Our plumber got them right, but I can see if you cut them too short you would be in trouble! Yes, why aren't they factory sized to be correct?
I give long term repairability about 1 start. If you need to replace the flushing mechanism (probably 7-10 years), you have to completely remove the toilet, including decaulking along the base. that is because the supply line connects to the flush/fill components "inside" the single body unit and the only way to disconnect is to remove. the price of beauty ;-(
I would still recommend this, but go in with you eyes wide open and expect to pay decent money for difficulty install. I have replaced standard toilets, but was glad I did not do this one.
One minor issue, one of ours started to have a continuous "filling" problem. This seems to be due to the length of the rod that connects outer and inner flush mechanism. At first it was fine, but oddly, the problem showed up after a few days, I am scared to cut it, so am slowing trying to file it until it is fine. If I lift off the top or bump the toilet, it is enough to release it, so I should be able to fix it soon.
