Color: Chrome
Most of this product is chrome-plated PLASTIC, including most of the body

I have a Masters in Mech Engineering. In the product design business we call this a "cost-reduced model" - but in this case quality was sacrificed when redesigned to reduce cost. Features that were metal (such as cast brass) on much earlier models are now chrome-plated-plastic in most models at this price point, including the 521-DST-A. That doesn't make this a "bad" model but it may alter what purpose you buy it for. For example, I would feel quite comfortable installing this into mid-tier or especially low-tier rental property - that I own but don't live in. What about a home I own and plan to live in for more than a few years? In that case, I would buy a cast brass model that is chrome-plated (or similar attractive finish over METAL housing).

You can still buy Delta bathroom faucets in this (single handle) style but built stronger (like they were all built years ago) with metal housings, but now those are often labeled as "Commercial Series" tier and cost about $100 or more. For example, take a look at the "Delta Commercial" 22C Series family, which is CAST BRASS (+ finishing such as chrome plating) and includes for example the 22C301 model (Delta Faucet 22C301 22T Single Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet, Chrome). That model has a shipping weight of 5.6 lbs. Compare that to the mostly-plastic 521-DST-A with a shipping weight of only 2.3 lbs. Do the math; when metal became plastic the product became a lot lighter (also saving cost on shipping!).

My requirements for a bathroom faucet included a single handle, 3-hole centerset, 4" installation, easy-to-clean, reasonable price, chrome finish, stylish and a brand with a good reputation. The Delta 521-DST-A met all those requirements.

We also have an old Delta faucet that has been working for over 20 years, so we're banking on the Delta brand for long-lasting quality, although I know that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

- After getting confused about so many available options, I visited the Delta website. I found it useful there to filter down from many models to those that met my requirements. Then I used the compare function that lists side-by-side features that differ between models. However, it says "no data available" for some of the line items, making it more difficult to compare.

The Delta Classic faucet installed without any issues, the handle moves smoothly and I like the flared spout and rounded base.

Metal vs. Plastic Pop-ups:
There is another version Delta 520-MPU-DST Classic Single Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet, Chrome that costs 60% more than the 521-DST-A. The more expensive 520 model has a metal pop-up instead of plastic. If the plastic pop-up fails, you could replace it with a metal one for less than the 60% differential. At least that provides the customer some options. Also, the website says the 520 has a Cache aerator type whereas it is NA for the 521.

There's many more to choose from, such as the 520-DST, which is similar, but different in a feature or two.

Very easy to install, directions are good. Lots of extra parts. Ended up buying too for workplace. It's nice having the options for the handle as well. So far they both work great, as they do see a lot of traffic.

I bought this faucet to replace an older moen (came with the house). This Delta was the longest faucet Home Depot had on the shelves and the design was much more stylish than the moen options. In my opinion, the basic moen was so short, I didn't even think the water would make it into the sink - and because our sink is large, it meant leaning fairly far to wash your hands. This faucet really doesn't get lost and look out of place (miniature) with a huge sink and large vanity.

Anyhow, this is my first Delta product and I have to say, I love the look. The handle operates very smoothly - my four year old has no problems using it. My dad installed it in an hour - he had a difficult time because the hoses were so long! He was impressed it came with all the parts (plastic, not metal - which is the only drawback). However, it's working wonderfully and I was actually checking to see the price on Amazon because I am going to put one in my master bathroom too (and replace the other itty bitty moen). I will note, it is easy to not shut it off all the way, you really have to pay attention to putting the handle down (I've walked into the bathroom to find it running slightly) because someone hurriedly walked out.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely upgrade without paying a premium price. It's amazing how much of a change switching out the faucet made :)
