A great sink, especially considering that most welded 16 gauge sinks like this retail for more than twice the price. Really well done sound proofing on it: rubber pads on the sides and bottoms as well as sprayed on insulating material covering the entire underside . . . features you won't find on many much, much more expensive sinks. The mirror finish stainless on the sink interior does scratch fairly easily (this is pretty much par for the course for *ANY* mirrored stainless finish), however, it does not discolor like lower grade stainless would, and I expect after a year or so of hard use that the bottom would have a nice uniform patina. Nice wide flange on the sink made gluing it in no problem for the granite. The sink is extra long/deep so make sure you have clearance in back for your faucets (works well with a tile backsplash). A tip for those saying that they were missing the template: there is an unmarked piece of heavy white paper covering the bottom of the sink when you open the box. This is actually the template. It's easily mistaken as packaging, so don't toss it.
