The toilet looks sleek and works wonderfully. My senior citizen motto is if it's got horizontal planes, it will collect dust and debris. No dry spot in bowl like the Toto we purchased at same price for other restroom. I looked at reviews for Ariel and it sat boxed in garage for almost 9 months but it fit the little area for the toilet and works like a charm. Seat is silent and works well. This toilet is for a guest bathroom in the main part of the house so it will get less use but it's a good buy. The one problem is the replacement parts when something needs fixing in the tank itself. For the time being the toilet is a good buy.

Thrilled with this toilet, bought two. One word of caution, review specs carefully with your plumber first, not just the opening, but also check the spacing of your water line coming out of the wall. It has a different floor mounting - my plumber said instead of just dropping it in (a 10-minute install) he had to attach the separate fitting to the floor first. Thought he'd have to drill into our concrete slab, yet discovered a work-around using a cement adhesive. Very doable, but make sure your plumber knows the details before you order. There is limited clearance at the bottom typically near where the water line comes out of the wall. One bathroom it was not an issue, the other the water line was in the wrong place and would have hit the toilet. My plumber said in order to install we'd have to move the water line, very $$$. We ended up using the second one in another bathroom instead. Again, highly recommended, just do your homework first to avoid any surprises.
We had to return toilets because my plumber refused to attempt to install them. The install guide was very confusing and in millimeters. Since we had newly tiled floors he would not risk ruining the floor to attempt to decipher the instructions. Also, the product description did not mention anything about the bowl being elongated and I was slightly disappointed on arrival that it was (maybe I missed it in the description, but the picture looked like it was round also). The toilet does look great as a one-piece with a nice skirted bottom but install issues were a bummer.
