Installation is easy.
Turtle502
The tall arm is also great if you are a bit taller and your shower pipe comes out of the wall below optimum height.
Travis Welch
It gives us great water pressure when taking a shower and actually feels like a relaxing rain shower!!!

Waterpik makes a brushed nickel version of this showerhead, model # RPB 179. I know, because I purchased 2 yesterday that I stumbled upon at HomeGoods for $19.99 each. Oddly, even Google can't as of this date find the RPB 179 - perhaps it is brand new version? Anyway, it is same as RPB 173 except finish is pretty brushed nickel and face is putty colored rather than black. I love this model because:
1) Installation - Having now installed 2 in my home, I'm pretty sure I could install a third in under 60 seconds if I really hustled! Only tool you'll need is pliers to remove old showerhead.
2) Flow - My goal is to get drenched, not massaged, and this model, with it's six inch wide head and dozens of firm but not stinging streams, succeeds marvelously.
3) Simplicity - I like simple things. This thing is very simple with a clean-looking design. And it should last.
4) Positioning - Best feature of all. The adjustable nine-inch arm enables you to position the head so that at it's lowest point it is around 5 inches higher than a conventional fixed head. My old head was around 5'11" off the floor of tub, this one is around 6'4". It also enables you to position the head perhaps 6 inches further out from the wall. So, no more bending over backwards or bumping into the shower caddy, or maneuvering through the spray and around the head to get the shampoo, etc.
5) Adjustability - the arm adjusts off the pipe, and the head adjusts off the arm, so you can have the starting point and angle of flow just how you like it, and such that it won't splatter on drywall, out of shower, etc.
6) Looks - quite handsome. Get yourself a brushed-nickel caddy for a good looking combo.
7) Quality - Early to say, but the two I installed don't leak at all, not even a single drop.

I purchased and install this shower head In my guess bathroom. The installation was pretty straight forward.

1. Remove old shower head
2. Place wing nut over shower pipe
3. Screw pivot ball onto shower pipe
4. Tighten wing nut to shower arm/shower head
5. Done

The shower head is made from plastic with a faux chrome finish. The material is well made and it appears that it may last a few years. The shower head measures just a little bit over 6 inches. However, the diameter for the circle of spray nozzles is 108mm or 4.25 inches . I have attached pictures as reference.
The water pressure in my bathroom is pretty strong, yet the shower head seems kind of weak. Don't get me wrong it does a good job and it is one of the best shower heads I have owned, I just expected more force from the water. I think the water hole in the shower head could have been just a tad bigger to give it more of a drenching feel. I have attached a short video to demonstrate the flow. overall I am happy with the purchase.

Edit: 07/18/2012

In order to get this to be more drenching you will need to remove the flow restrictor in the shower head. If you look down the hole where the pipe fits on the shower head you will see this small brown plastic thing. Just use a screw drive or something pointy to push/break through and the shower head will now be able to flow more water. I'll upload pics to show what I mean. Do this mod at you own risk.

We had one of our bathrooms remodeled 3 years ago.. The carpenters placed the shower head way higher than one would think it should be placed. Since then, the water has hit me in the face (I felt like I was playing dodge ball while showering, dodging the water hitting me in the face), as well as hit the wall of the rounded shower, which leaked out the sliding door and left a small puddle on the floor.. I've tried adjusting it over and over again and finally said enough already! I started looking for new shower heads on amazon and when I read the description for this one, I thought maybe this would be an answer to my problems.

I installed it a week ago and can't find one bad thing to say about it! It was very easy to install, falls straight down into the shower (rather than in my face) and no longer hits the shower wall doorway, so no more puddles on the floor. I also have better pressure with this shower head than I did with the one the carpenters installed. It feels like rainfall, plain and simple! It's nice.. It's enough to rinse hair and soap easily, but not so much that you feel like your shower is beating you up.. Why didn't I replace that dang shower head 3 years ago????

Someone else left feedback saying this is the cheapest plastic available. It is some sort of a plastic product, but isn't just about everything we use these days? I wouldn't call it the cheapest plastic available, but rather a light weight product. I think it needs to be in order to stay in the correct position to pour downward like rain..

I love the articulation of the arm which allows for lots of movement, but it is made out of the junkiest, most worthless pieces of cheap plastic. I had to use a permanent sealer to get the inner ball attachment to stay fixed to the nipple pipe, since the regular movement of the arm would often result in the ball becoming loose from the nipple pipe.

I would not recommend this at all due to the low quality of the pieces.
