Lorain Two Handle Widespread Lavatory Faucet
Very nice for the price (and easy to install)
Bought six of these for a house remodeling. Always liked Deltas 'cause they're easy to maintain. Each time I buy a facet, the engineers have found a way to make the installation easier. Hats off to them as I am 300 lbs. and some under sink areas are a tight fit. Install was easy, but I would recommend that you use a marker on the underside of the sink and on the under sink portion of each valve to ensure that when you tighten everything up that the valves aligned properly (so your wife doesn't say, "Hey, this one is crooked" after you have finished.). It's just easier that way if you don't have a helper to align from the top as you tighten from the bottom.
Also, since I know that few of us actually save the installation instructions, it pays to read the maintenance section and actually walk through the procedure for disassembling a valve to reach the spring and seal. Since there are no set screws on the handles, you may not remember 2 years later that to fix a leak you spin the valve's exposed base counterclockwise to access the cartridge. It will save you a lot of Internet browsing time later.

I recently remodeled the bathroom in my house. I purchased an undermount sink for the new vanity and did not realize it would need a wide-spread faucet. Shopping for a wide-spread faucet was a nightmare until I discovered the Lorain faucet.
The faucet was easy to assemble/install (I am no plumber) and looks great on top of the sink. The brushed nickel finish does not show fingerprints.
I would recommend this faucet to anyone who wants a very good looking and functional bath faucet.
