I am renovating my bathroom & I want a sleek, modern, functional design. This item fits the bill because I couldn't afford $1000 for a high quality one. The trim pieces are so thin that I don't expect them to last long. I haven't installed it yet but I do not expect to have the kind of fine tuning on temperature and flow that I would have with an expensive one. That means fiddling for awhile to get the desired temp. There is no volume control so I will have to add valves to the line in the wall to adjust it for drought conditions; maybe a low flow shower head would work.
