This faucet looks amazing, and comes in a spanking shiny box in a protective sock. I installed it likety split BUT the lever for the faucet was loose at the start, and got looser and looser over time to the point that the thread has worn away and it's just sitting there, unsecured. Such a shame. I guess you could live with this - but perhaps screw the lever in with plumber's tape OR epoxy the thing.

I have used these products for 2 years. They are all metal and very good quality, much better than I expected. The only problem I had was of my own creation. Don't put items under the spray hose that can raise the hose and cause the sprayer to hang down instead of retracting all the way.
I have 2 issues with this faucet. The first is water is leaking on the inside nosel that retracts up into the permanent mount. This is a big issue since I have an electrical outlet directly under the faucet in the below cab. The second issue is there's no retracting spring under the sink to pull the nosel back into the holder. There's just a weight at the bottom which doesnt work well in my case. I do have something in the sink cabinet that isn't allowing it to easily retract, however, ive pulled the nosel all the way out to not allow item to prevent it from retracting and it still doesnt work. I love the looks of this faucet but am returning it. The leak started roughly 1 month after install.
I have to admit, the name of the company drew me in, being a Ghostbusters can and all. My wife and I had seen this faucet elsewhere for much more money, and decided to get it from Overstock. The only difficulty I had with the install was with how our water system was connected, no fault of the Vigo. Once installed, the sprayer is strong enough that you don't even need a "power spray" button at all. Easy pull down and replacement, looks great, and the company is a great one from which to buy. They annually donate a percentage of their profits to impoverished countries, and the faucet comes with a better warranty than most. I love washing dishes now, with Vigo- The Scour of Carpathia.
We bought this faucet back in spring of 2012, installed it in the fall. The style of it is PERFECT and therefore I'm very sad to leave this review. I have 2 complaints, one major, one minor. The minor complaint is that this faucet has no option to spray...only stream, which it does say in this bullet...and I knew going in... "Faucet features single function pull-out faucet head with power stream" My MAJOR complaint is that in less than 2 years of use, the chrome/stainless steel coating is chipping off the area where the pull-out head meets the fixed unit. I actually cut myself today, which has prompted me to leave this review. It is just my husband and myself, no kids, and we are not rough with our faucets. I can only imagine that this would not stand up to a full household of people using it. The actual function of the faucet is great. But I am definitely in need of a new faucet as I don't want stabbings by the flaking metal coating to be a part of my daily routine. I honestly don't know what sort, if any, kind of warranty is on this, but I may pursue that. Although I'm not keen on getting another of the same due to the metal flaking/chipping issue.
This is beautiful and very well made - definitely a bargain! Purchased with the Vigo stainless sink and both were easily installed by our contractor during a kitchen remodel. Both pieces quickly delivered.

When I saw the photo, I was expecting something lean and small in scale. It's huge (see the dimensions), but I love it. Guess I was thinking I was getting something low scale for the price, but know it's going to be something I can display proudly and boast of it's value:) Our remodel is "in progress", so won't be using it for about another month (after our son's wedding) - CAN'T WAIT!

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Didn't really read it, as I thought a faucet is a faucet!
A well designed and beautifully manufactured faucet. The hose on the detachable spray head is long enough to reach all that we need. I also like that the lever can be positioned to the right, left or center. Installation was straightforward and went smoothly. Soap dispenser fills from the top, which is very convenient.
This product met my expectations. It was sturdy, good material and big. I love my new faucet!!!

The look and quality of the faucet is amazing! If you compare it to the faucets found at the big name brand home stores there is just no comparison. The faucet and soap dispenser were constructed of solid metal materials inside and out. If you look at the faucets that are sold at the name brand home stores the materials are cheap and constructed of plastic on the inside. Great product.
