Vigo wall-mount faucet
 from San Francisco Bay area, CA,  May 16, 2008

This must be one of the most elegant contemporary designs on the market. It might be improved by making the handles a little thicker, but that's a quibble. The chrome finish is excellent. Value for money, it can't be beaten. Downsides are 1. Annonimity. Where's it made? Where can one buy spare parts? (An unlikely requirement but comforting to have.) 2. Thread fittings a bit loose, particularly the spout. Make sure there are no leaks. (Sweat fitting the supply pipes is not an option because standard US 1/2 inch pipes won't fit.) 3. One buyer complained that , when shut off, the knobs didn't sit square. True. But there is a fairly easy fix. If the offset is very minor, it can be accommodated by tightening the valve with a wrench. If that makes you nervous, remove the valve and carefully file the mating brass body surface to lower it a fraction. (this would be hard to do with the unit in place.) Reinsert the valve and repeat the process if necessary until the knob is square. If the filing is not absolutely perfect, don't worry. The seal is accomplished with an O ring 4. Careful when you turn on the taps. For appearance reasons, presumably, there is no aerator or restrictor on the spout. Water will gush out. If the flow is excessive, one can probably find a 50cent shower restrictor cone that could be inserted in the threaded connection of the spout. None of these downsides is a show stopper, and a halfway competant plumber should be able to deal with a perfect installation
