Attractive, functional - a winner for me
By Adam Wood
[[VIDEOID:mo1GGL1JSCH3DEH]]I've had Moen faucets in my house since I moved in 12 years ago, and they've worked great the whole time. I wanted to get one for my kitchen with an integrated pull down sprayer, and I'm happy that I picked this one. It's worked great for me.
The video just provides a quick view of the faucet and some of the features. I hope it helps with your decision.
Overall, I'm happy with this and have no real complaints. It looks nice and functions well, and I really like the added height of this model compared to my older faucet. It makes cleaning pots and pans a lot easier.
Some quick things to note:
- The handle can be positioned anywhere, as there are no set locations. So, you can have it on either side or anywhere in between. Very handy.
- The pull down spout has a switch that lets you toggle between a stream and a spray, and you can hold the switch in to stop the flow of water.
- Installation will be easier if there are two people because there's nothing to keep the faucet from falling over before the retaining nut is tightened from the bottom. I managed it, but it did fall over on me once. Also, because there are no features to set the clocking of the handle, and because tightening the retaining nut will cause the fixture to spin, having a second person to hold it in place would be helpful.
- The hose connected to the pull down spout has a weight that you attach under your sink to pull the spout back into place when you let go. Because of where my pipes run under my sink, the weight clunks against them when I pull the spout down. The location of the weight is adjustable, but I wasn't able to completely avoid the pipes. It's just something to consider, but you may not have that issue, and I still like it even though it happens to me.
I recommend Moen as a brand, and I think this model is worth your consideration.
UPDATE 01/21/2013: Hi, everyone. After buying and installing this faucet, I was given the amazing privilege of being able to try out the Motionsense version in chrome, the Moen 7594EC, as part of the Vine program. I also did a video review for that one, and I wrote up my thoughts about the two different versions. I figure that you might be trying to decide between the two versions like I was last October, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask in a comment.

Very Easy to Install, Beautiful Faucet
By Katherine Chan
Our kitchen faucet was in dire need of an upgrade - too often we couldn't fill pitchers or pot easily because of our old Delta faucet was too low, and rust clung all around the joints. When we received our new Moen Faucet, it was a huge relief! The Moen One Handle High Arc Faucet was really easy to install - the only tools I needed were a wrench to remove my old faucet, and a screwdriver to install the new Moen Faucet. Moen included a tool to use in conjunction with a screwdriver to tighten the included nuts and bolts. Having never changed a faucet before, it only took me an hour to remove all the stuff under my sink, remove the old faucet, install the new faucet, and put everything back under the sink (the shortest task being installing the new faucet!). The instructions included no words and only pictures, but it was very self explanatory (see picture of some instructions that I've included in "additional photos"). If you've never removed a faucet before, it would be a good idea to YouTube a video on removing a faucet.
The Moen Faucet works wonderfully. The faucet is arched fairly high - I am able to put tall stock pots into the sink and fill them without bumping into the faucet. The neck of the faucet swivels left and right smoothly, and the Pulldown head allows me to fill pots and pitchers on the sink. My favorite feature on this faucet is the smooth flow, shower flow, and stop button on the faucet head. I can fill my Pur Pitcher without having to turn on and off the water - I simply turn on the faucet, push a button on the side of the faucet head to stop the water flow when moving it over my pitcher, release the button to fill the pitcher, then push the button again to stop the flow so I can position the faucet head over the sink and turn it off with the same hand (see picture of the button that I've included in "additional photos"). I've had no leaks and the faucet looks great! Highly recommended!
Additional Note: Because of the high arc of the faucet, you may have a new problem of getting a lot of "splash back" when using this faucet. We tend to not use the "shower stream" function as much because by the time the water hits the sink or dishes in the sink, we get so much splash back that our shirts get pretty wet! Not sure if this will be an issue for everyone - our sink is set fairly low in comparison with the faucet.

I love my new faucet!
By Denise Crawford
Now I shall wax poetic about my new Moen kitchen sink faucet! The old one I had was a perfectly functional, but somewhat boring, conventional looking single-handle Solutions by Peerless Single Handle Kitchen Faucet, Chrome and I liked it well enough. When the chance came to replace that with a high arc faucet with a pulldown sprayer, I jumped at the opportunity. Installation was very straightforward and the directions clear - the toughest part was the removal of the old one which had rusted a little and couldn't be removed through the central opening into the porcelain of the sink without cutting the sprayer hose. Once the old faucet was out, the new device's fittings were attached with relative ease and the whole procedure took about 30 minutes.
I really like that you could choose which side to put the handle on, thus making it appealing for either right- or left-handed users. The arc is nice and high thus allowing me to put large pots and other cookware into the sink and not have to tilt them under the faucet stream. The arc piece easily swivels from side to side. The chrome is very shiny and the metal pieces are sturdy with some weight to them; they don't feel like thin plating over plastic. I love how the pulldown sprayer allows you to turn off the streaming water right at the headpiece when switching sides of the sink or to made other adjustments as needed. The faucet is esthetically pleasing and the brand name, Moen, is known for making a quality product.
I realize that not many people get really excited about a kitchen faucet, but I'm very happy to have this and will enjoy using it for years to come.
