Filters well, but severely restricts flow long before 200 gallons.
By Anthony Nonya
This is my second filter, and it has been going much the same as the first. Upon first use water comes out quickly and tastes good. By 40 gallons the flow is restricted to about half of the initial rate. By 60 gallons it is noticeably slower than it was at 40.
My first filter I keep using all the way up to 210 gallons. Water tasted the same all the way up, but long before then the flow was painfully slow. I won't be keeping this filter past 100 gallons this time.
That in mind, even at only 100 gallons the price per gallon is not too bad. I just wish the flow stayed at a higher rate longer.

good filter for a useful faucet mount
I used to use brita pitchers, but always had trouble keeping track of when they needed changed. I grabbed a faucet dispenser (DuPont WFFM350XBN Electric Metered 200-Gallon Deluxe Faucet Mount Premium Water Filtration Filter, Brushed Nickel) for this filter because it kept a log of how much water you used, and that was about 2 years ago. I can no longer find replacement cartridges where I bought them, so I get them here.
My tastes aren't particularly demanding, but my area water has a slight aftertaste to it that I find unpleasant, and this filter is more than sufficient to counter that. I suspect pretty much any decent filter would be sufficient for that -- I imagine they all do it the same way, with a bit of carbon filtering. Hopefully it also filters out everything it says it is filtering out, but I can't really confirm that. The main selling point for me is the meter on the faucet mount, which not only ensures I don't inadvertently replace it too early or too late, but also helps me keep a little better track of my own water intake.

I live in NYC, and on my faucet it ...
By Robert S
I live in NYC, and on my faucet it only lasted 70 gallons according to the filter's display. At that point the water coming out of the filter slowed down to a trickle and finally the battery / display died. So far this happened on 2 out of the 3 filters I bought (just started on the last one).
