Classic Monitor® 14 Series Tub and Shower Trim
Smooth Operation and Adjustability
This item replaces an old (15 years) Delta tub/shower combo in a remodeled (new tile walls and floor tile) master bath. Since all my plumbing is sweated copper I had a professional install the new one while the walls were down. Also had them raise the shower head connection up about 8 inches. Finally no ducking down to get your head wet. The new combo looks great and works smoothly. I really like the ability to setup stops to control how much hot water goes into the mix. This feature can prevent inadvertent scalding. And it's easy to change. Just pop off the spout reset the stop to either colder or hotter and Bob's your Uncle. Highly recommend.

Looks Good Works Great
I had this installed by a contractor in 2010. We have not had any problems with its function with the exception that the hot water valve must be adjusted manually and he did not leave the adjustment tool with us. I would not buy this exact type again only because of the way it must be adjusted to the hot water. I put a warning label [that I wrote] on the hot water tank & in the medicine cabinet as a reminder.
The shower head has a wonderful flow, the handle is easy to use & comfortable to touch, the tubs stop plug is just a little tricky to align closed & easy to pull to drain.
We have hard water so lots of spots to polish off.

This product works great
The product works very well in our bathroom. It might perform better if the shower handle was placed in the middle and the user could turn the handle in either direction. Currently, in order to turn the shower off, the user must turn the handle completely toward the cold side. Due to this, when the shower is turned on cold water comes first and then it is gradually warmed.
