Good product with some caveats
I purchased this product in order to convert my toilet to a dual-flush system. It is definitely easy to install, just like the box says. I highly recommend watching the install videos available on the HD website as well as youtube BEFORE installation, it helps. My system contained the level rather than the button feature. NOTE - some toilets because of the way they are made result in the lever connector inside the tank sticking up too tall, and the tank lid may hit the push-button causing the connection to not work. Only way I could get around this is to prop the tank lid inside ridge on top of the tank front edge (rather than beside it) too keep the tank lid from contacting the switch. Not noticeable unless you look hard, and it still works OK.

Installed easily, no issues
Took 20 minutes to install and adjust water level with easy slide controls. Didn't use any tools. Dual flush button gives a contemporary look. Should have done this sooner.
Things to know: 1. We have a float ball with rod (that controls the automatic water shut-off) that was not in the way of the new mechanism - luckily we didn't need to replace it. HydroRight does have a kit for replacing this with the vertical float auto water shut-off. 2. If you have and old water supply/shut-off valve, as an option you might consider turning off the house water supply vs. the risk of creating a leaky valve by turning it off and on again.

This has been a very disappointing product. I originally bought one when needing to replace the flapper on one of my toilets. Install was simple, and the product has lived up to expectations. The problem came later...
When a 2nd toilet's fill tube was leaking, I again purchased this product to upgrade it similar to my earlier upgrade. It simply never worked. I was completely unable to get the unit to seat properly to prevent a slow and steady leading from the tank into the bowl. And this steady leak resulted in the toilet refilling the tank every couple of hours -- so much for saving water.
While working on this 2nd toilet I actually bought a 3rd one for, yet another bathroom toilet -- same problem. The unti continually leaks resulting in the tank refilling every few hours.
I ultimately bought a standard repair kits (flapper) and replaced both units -- now all toilets are working correctly again.
Overall, if the unit worked correctly, it might be worth it. But based on the higher price, and overall aggrevation of having to futz with it constantly (and ultimately failing to get it to stop leaking), it's just not worth it. Save your time and money and buy a different product.

Worth the money
I am already seeing a savings in mY water bill. They are somewhat tricky to install if you have a normal ball type float valve but overall easy to install and even easier to use.

Easy to install, but doesn't really do it.
Perhaps others have gotten this to work well, but our toilet constantly gets clogged. I find one has to hold the flush button down for a long time. I've played with the water levels quite a bit, and can't get it to work well for us. I have two other (manufactured to be) dual flush toilets and will buy another rather than wrestle with this retrofit any longer.

As a handy man, I have installed several of these types of water saver in other people toilets. We run an inhome daycare and watching the kids dribble in the toilet and then pull a full flush I wondered if the water saver would work and the kids could learn how to use the flush. It was easy to install in the toilet. Always remember to turn off the water first. (Lesson Learned). It was so easy to install as I have had practice, but even the first time for a novice will be a breeze. Follow the instructions on how to set it up correctly, only 2 adjustments so you cant really screw it up. The kids pull down on the middle of the flush handle so they quickly grasped how to flush for # 1 and # 2. Saving tons of water now, so I bought a second one.
Love them because they have already paid for them selves. Great investment.
