At the end of the day, its just a piece of porcelain so there's not a lot of technology involved. Therefore, why pay more for some other sink? This is a great deal, looks nice, and since there are zero parts to it, very easy to install. The single downside (which may not be a downside for everyone) is that its a very shallow sink. If you plan to fill it with water to wash your face, this isn't the sink for you. If it'll simply be used to wash hands and typical powder room use, then its perfect.
