Rated 5 out of 5 by Squiggher Clean elegance defines the Dryden suite.
As a kitchen and bath designer, I am always on the lookout for products with exceptional design features. After discovering Delta's Dryden suite at the KBIS display in Chicago last year, I have specified this product several times. The clean, elegant lines finished with just a bit of flourish in the inverted "crown" detail of the escutcheons and the spout end, lend to contemporary, craftsman, shaker, and a number of other stylings.
Because the product is made by Delta, I don't have to question whether the performance will match the design. I even upgraded the faucet in my showroom bath to this Dryden faucet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jfillion Nice product, very poor configuration for "use case"
Purchased the lav faucet, Mulitchoice valve, diverter, body sprays, and shower head. Spent over $1,000 on the fixtures. Everything was top notch until the lav spout. The threads are too short and needed to go back and buy an extension kit!
I have to ask the product team at Delta this, why would anyone with any product knowledge not design a $350+ valve to be installed into granite or marble? Do you really believe that someone would actually buy this lav faucet into a high pressure laminate counter? Seriously? The product has been out for long enough that one would expect the product team to have fixed this.
Nice product, but the product team should have given the kit more thought.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bryon57 great looking but doesn't work with 3cm granite
I was so disappointed that the Dryden faucets could not work with 3 cm granite; they are beautiful. My plumber tried for a long time to make them work but the max 1 1/8" is too close to 3cm (1" thick). There should be an extension that is standard with purchase of any faucet since countertop depths vary so much.

Delta faucets are manufactured with longevity in mind. Plus, this bathroom faucet is stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kraftyaunt Delta Dryden Fixtures & Accessories
We had the Delta Dryden fixtures installed in our new master bathroom. I prefer the look of shiny chrome while my husband prefers the brushed finish. We did the sink fixtures as widespread chrome and the shower fixtures as the brushed and they look great all together. The most appealing feature is the dual control temp/volume shower trim. Not too many manufactures give you the two-handled option. The Dryden line gives just enough Art Deco flavor to the bathroom. I love the overall look and while it is a new installation, I have high expectations about the lifetime use of the Delta products. Here is a picture of the shower install.

Rated 3 out of 5 by commode Kind of smelly...
When this faucet arrived, I suspected it had previously been returned. The box had obviously been opened and parts taken out of the box already. However, all of the faucet parts were there and in good condition, so I installed it.
My main complaint about this fixture is that it smells very strongly of grease or machining fluid. I noticed it immediately upon opening the box. Now that it is installed, my bathroom smells of grease or machining fluid. Not pleasant. I am hoping that this smell will go away.
The installation was OK, a little fiddly. The metal pop up drain does not mate well with the existing s-trap, so it leaks at the junction. I need to fix that -- not sure if it's the fault of the drain part or the pipe part.

Rated 4 out of 5 Beautiful Faucet...
This faucet was the first piece of the Dryden collection we purchased. It is super heavy and sturdy... very well made. We are delighted! . But... MAKE SURE YOU ORDER THE EXTENTION KIT FOR GRANITE TOPS! A word of caution...the rest of the collection including the dual control shower valve and shower head are pretty cheesy and include plastic. Disappointing if you like all your fixtures to match. The toilet paper holder is of the same quality as the faucet. Super nice. The towel bar like a cheap imitation. We returned all the shower fixtures but love this faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckay I love this faucet!
Ordered 2 for my master bath and just love them! They're
stylish, all the parts were there, work great, and have lots
of accessories to match! Appreciated the prompts to order
the extensions for "thick mounting." They worked great and
were needed for the granite installation. My contractor wasn't
thrilled that I decided to order most of my things "on-line"
instead of going local. But FD's delivery was better and
their prices blew even my contractors discount "out of the
water." He's even a believer now! :)
