I purchased this model locally to perform a quick repair on a badly leaking and aging faucet. It was cheaper to buy this and swap out the old unit (which was over 20 years old.)
Why I like this unit is it is bargain-priced and has everything you need with respect to fasteners and bottom gasket to affix it to the basin. The threads on the connection fittings for hot and cold water mated perfectly with the older lines, and the valve assemblies turn smoothly and positively control flow. No leaks or drips.
Installation was a breeze. After removing the old unit it's a matter of putting this in place, tightening the base with the included retainer nuts, and reconnecting the water lines. I installed mine on a washroom basin that had all connections exposed so it was about a fifteen minute job. It could take longer if the installation is under a cabinet, but that is due to the enclosure and not the design of this faucet.
The finish appears sturdy and is easy to keep clean. A nice feature is the hose adapter on the end of the spigot. I don't use it, but it does add versatility to the unit - especially for outside installations. For the price this is a bargain.
