Absolutely love this shower head, Kohler nailed it. The standard spray pattern setting is just right, not too wide, not too narrow, and comfortable. I don't use the other two spray patterns. The shower head spray is quieter than our previous one and I haven't noticed as many temperature fluctuations from others using the hot water. Showers actually take us less time with this since it is easier to rinse off. Our last shower head was good quality major brand but pales in comparison to this one. Kind of weird being so enthusiastic about a shower head but it is really good. The wife and kid love it too.
