Takeaway: Quick to self-install, looks great, soft, even water flow, easy water temp mixing.

You'll receive the faucet, two 26" flexible water lines for hot and cold, a cresent washer with rubber pad, a 5" shaft bolt, and plastic mounting tool. The faucet is constructed of heavy-weight metal and has an oil rubbed bronze finish. It measures 7.5" tall and the nozzle will extend 6" out over the sink. The tip of the faucet has an aerator that adds air bubbles to give the water a softer feel. The hoses are color coded blue and red for cold and hot water. You'll also receive a set of illustrated installation instructions. However, it does not come with a deck plate nor hole covers if you have more than 1 hole in your sink. This faucet cannot accommodate a plunger drain plug so you may need a strainer basket or other plug to block or stop the drain. I prefer using a pop-up drain plug and you should be able to find one in a matching finish easily (oil-rubber bronze).

Installation took about 15 minutes and following the instructions was pretty straight forward. The only tricky part was screwing the water lines into the faucet because they flail around as you turn them. The new hoses worked fine and I didn't experience any leaks. Make sure that when connecting the lines to your water shutoffs, the nut on the bottom is pulled all the way down before you tighten it so that the inner washer seats and seals correctly. Operation of the faucet is smooth and easy. The water from the faucet runs with good pressure with a gentle, soft flow as it passes through the aerator. The standard sized fixture is a medium height and fixed in the center position, which is great for hand washing in a half-bath but a little low for face washing. On the other hand, the tall version would be too high if you don't have a vessel sink that requires the extra height. Overall, the installation was straightforward and the fixture looks modern. It even matches the mirror frame that I have above the sink.
