We had one in our condo (installed myself), and while it looked nice, it wasn't all-metal construction. However, it was reliable and never leaked at all, but the selector between stream and spray on the nozzle (like on yours in the pic) was getting slightly sloppy by the end, after about 2 years.

It's probably considered a mid-grade faucet (at least the one I had), but it's definitely no top of the line.

UGH, that's not good.

What would be a recomendations for a higher line, better built faucet?

Depending on your budget and the rest of your kitchen decor and quality, the Danze isn't a bad choice, but it wouldn't look or fit (quality-wise), IMO, in a kitchen with granite countertops, $10000 worth of appliances, etc. It's a decent faucet that enver really let me down, and for the price, was quite attractive. Moen and Price-Pfister are supposedly better brands that aren't TOO much more expensive, but they rarely go on sale like the Danze does in my area at Canadian Tire.

Well, I got the faucet last night and will be calling today to return for a Price Pfister. It is good looking but upon closer inspection looks "cheap". As the saying goes, "Looks good from far, but far from good!"

The body does not feel like metal and mostly all part's are plastic. In addition, from it being in the packaging there are two "scrapes" on either side of the until. If this happen's while packaged, how well will it stand up over time.
