A marvel of ceramic engineering
on October 16, 2012
I never thought I'd be impressed by a toilet but this one is pretty good.
I think Amazon may have learned some lessons from earlier shipments and improved the packaging. This was delivered in two boxes that were much larger than the manufacturer's packaging with lots of packing material. Needless to say, it arrived without any breaks. I'm sure the UPS person didn't appreciate the packaging but I did.
Very easy to install (first-time installer even) with no leaks whatsoever. I chose this model because of the dimensions since it was going into a small bathroom. Turned out to fit very well for a toilet with an elongated seat. I purchased TOTO SS304-CP Maple SoftClose Elongated Toilet Seat, Chrome to go with it because the other Toto soft-close seats had a good number of complaints. This seat fits this toilet very well and it all makes for a comfortable experience.
About the only negatives I would point out is that the tank lid basically just sits on top of the tank with only the button plungers holding it in place. It is not like the lid is in any danger of sliding off but it does allow the lid to move around slightly. I would think the lid could be made with a lip around the inside like most other tanks so that it stays tightly in place. Another thing which may be unique to my situation is that I was left with about a 3/4" gap behing the tank. I have the correct rough-in but that's the way it came out. I'll be re-tiling the walls soon anyway so maybe I'll thicken them up and take up some of that space. Both of these are pretty small negatives in my opinion.
Overall: 5 stars says it all!
