Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully designed, love it! My husband and I made the mistake of buying a cheap version of this faucet and regret doing so. There is no substitute for quality and that is exactly what this faucet is. It's beautifully designed and works very well. It was incredibly easy to install, the choice of 3 choices of spray are nice and the end fits your hand perfectly. Highly recommend this faucet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some good, some mediocre, some bad features. The good: Magnetic pull down retention works great and I expect it to last much longer than the "snap in" type retainers that I have seen fail frequently in other faucets. The mediocre: First, admittedly this is subjective, but most lever faucets you lift the lever to turn on and push down to turn off. This operates opposite and takes some getting used to. Second, as another reviewer mentioned the main nozzle is a bit narrow, this causes more splattering than a wider pattern. The bad: First, plastic lines on a $200 faucet is unacceptable, shame on you Delta. Second, on a stainless steel sink the nut pushes the plastic lines against the edge of the sink as it is tightened, cutting into the plastic supply line. Third, because of the close fit of the nut and supply lines the included wrench will not fit on the nut, you need to use a basin wrench. These problems could have been avoided if Delta used the extended nut (second picture) they include on some of their other faucets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The spray shield is an excellent feature! The faucet is beautiful and offers great features. It overhangs the middle of the sink and spins 360 degrees. The spray is powerful and offers a shielding feature that works great, the magnetic retracting spray head seats without drooping and remains snug until needed. This is a great buy that is functional and beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well - Looks great We've had it for about one week. Our plumber had it installed within one half hour. Since our granite is black with grace and rust highlights the bronze finish looks like it was installed by the developer. The handle is easy to work with and has a sweet spot when you shut it down to make sure it's off. The sprays are okay but the special spray is not that efficient. I'd rather had regular stream and higher power old fashions spray. At this point in time my husband is very happy with it and I am as well.
