Rated 5 out of 5Â by Autobroker Very nice bathroom shower/tub set
This shower/tub faucet has a great look and feel. The Kohler valve was easy to install and has a smooth operation. The water pressure is good and the shower head has a nice spray pattern.
The tub spout has a nice design and feels like it's well made.
The finish on the parts is great. The handle turns smoothly. The shower head feels great. The tub spout has a nice feel also.
This set makes our shower looks so much better. Our old show set was original with the house (built in 1992). The quality was good, but it looked dated and was chrome plated. This new Kohler Linwood set has a modern look with a great brushed nickel finish. Our shower looks so good now.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MattyMattMatt Mostly plastic trim work.
Just be aware that most of the trim work is brushed chrome plated plastic, which doesn't seem like it will hold up to much cleaning with any cleaners like Comet. The entire shower head is plastic. So is the faucet handle trim except the turn handle itself and the tub spout which are metal. It seem to function fine. No flow control to speak of unless cold only. Also the shower head sprays very wide and drips for several minutes after turning off water.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrFixIt Looks great, but best for new installations
The looks of this shower/tub combo are truly where it shines. It has the feel of a very high-end bathroom to it. The challenge, as other reviews have noted, is in the installation. I got this unit on-line, and so all i had to go by was what was summarized on Home Depot's site. Getting the actual box in hand, there is a LOT more information on the packaging. Most importantly, that if you are not replacing an existing Kohler handle assembly, you will need access to THE BACK OF THE WALL! Turns out, unfortunately for me, that my existing shower handle was in fact a different brand. So i could not install the handle assembly.
However, replacing the shower head and tub spout was a snap. The brushed nickel of these two items matched with the existing brushed nickel and it all flowed nicely. The shower head is large, but it is flow-restricted, so it doesn't dump out an obscene amount of water. That is a good thing!
Overall, i would recommend this mainly for new installations in a shower/bath to avoid worrying about compatibility, and to get the most bang for your buck.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sacherjj In love with Linwood
I have three Linwood products installed now and love the look of this one as much as the other two. I was not as impressed with the construction. Much more plastic than I would have hoped. However, it does look great installed and the handle moves with as quality a feel as the Linwood bathroom sink faucets I installed.
The shower head has a water saving flow rate, that is a little lower than some older shower heads. It is just at the limit of being acceptable for me. I am giving it a little leeway, due to how much classier the shower looks now.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SouthernUtahBoy Great looks, very good temperature control.
After having this professionally installed in my bathroom, I must say I am very pleased with this set. The materials are well built, the brushed nickel matches the other metallic finished accents in my bathroom. The rite-temp valve is nice because it really does a great job maintaining the temperature you set it at, if someone else in the house opens a faucet. The temperature adjustment is also very smooth, it doesn't get too hot or too cold with just a slight bump which I found annoying with my last shower valve. The shower spray is not adjustable, but it does put out a nice even spray that will suit most people's needs. I would purchase this again.
