When my bathroom remodel was completed I realized my faucet interfered with the opening of my beautiful mirrored medicine cabinet. It was too tall and if anyone ever snooped I knew they would smash into the tall faucet and damage would ensue. I'd spent a lot of money on that faucet and was really disappointed that I'd have to find a lower profile tap. I found this one and now I have to say I like it better than my original more costly model!! The original had a handle over the tap so you always leave water spots when turning it off and that was going to drive me mad. This Vigo Serra has a side handle so the tap stays clean also I think it's easier to figure out the hot and cold. This Vigo feels just as substantial as the one that cost $50 more, feels like quality, I love it.

This was a good purchase. The faucet does not leak or drip. I was particularly proud because I installed it myself. It wasn't that hard. The faucet feels a lot more superior than the one it replaced in many ways. It runs smoothly, I did not realize that water could flow more evenly. The last one the water poured out like it would in a brook, clumpy. This is is much stronger and doing little things like washing my hands or filling up a cup take a shorter amount of time. Not that this was anything that was hurting my life, but when you realize that there is a difference it can make life easier. It's one less thing to worry about and that is why I am happy with it. It works better than I had hoped.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate, but it seems more shiny in person.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. When I took it out of the box I knew it was well made. It is solid through-out.
As usual, Overstock shipped very fast. These faucets are heavy and seem to be good quality. Installation was a breeze BUT I was hard pressed to find a drain that works with 'em. They do not have a pop up drain slot in them so needed to find a push down that was not made for a vessel sink as mine are under mount and vented. I finally found some after much searching and they work fine. The only other issue I have noticed are they are loud with the water running even at half volume. I believe this is probably a mixing valve in the guts of the thing and not willing to dismantle to fix. Over all a good product and they look great against my self made concrete counter tops.
