Pre-Rinse High-Arc Kitchen Faucet from the Parma Collection
Makes a bold statement.
Functionally, this faucet is fine. You may want to consider installing it for left hand flow control and use the right hand for the rinse nozzle. Since the hose is above the sink instead of under, like for the pullout type, it is easier to keep the under-sink area clutter free. Aesthetically, this is a big fixture and will NEVER go unnoticed in your kitchen. I have no regrets, but someone that likes understatement could be disappointed. It is actually quite easy to keep clean and always looks like it came out of the box. The pullout type tends to collect lime deposits where the wand connects to the seat. I think this is a better choice.

I really like Faucet Direct, I recommended them all of the time. I have a small Handy Mann/ Remodeling business. I had this same Danze faucet in my other home and my wife loved it. We also like this one although we do have an issue. The spring pushes out too much so that the head is at an angle. I tried to fix this but the spring is too strong. We would have returned it but it was already installed and too much of a hassle, pics are attached.

good for the price
I am really pleased with this purchase which I bought for my daughter who was remodeling her kitchen. Since the spring mechanism is actually quite stiff, I was worried that it may not be flexible enough properly to cover the whole sink area, but it actually works quite will since the faucet easily rotates. I like that the hose inside the spring is also chrome rather than plastic as some of the cheaper models are. I would have liked to have the head of the faucet chrome rather than silver plastic, but the button to switch from stream to spray works well and for the price, this faucet looks gorgeous for those looking for industrial, chic for their kitchens.

Looks great but leaks after a while
I bought this faucet four years ago. After two years it started to leak. I took it apart and tried to reseal everything. It worked for a while. Finally it was just leaking too much so I contacted Danze.
Danze customer service was excellent and they replaced the unit readily.
As for my 2 stars: I've had the new unit in place for about a month now. At first it worked perfectly but now it seems I have a small fountain in my kitchen. It's leaking profusely from the metal hose.
I contacted Danze again yesterday. No time to hear back from them but thought I'd write this report anyway.

Looking for a replacement less than a year later
I don't like this faucet. I bought it to have a professional looking faucet that is highly functional. This one ends at the looks. You can't pull down the faucet but a couple inches, which then in the spray mode means your entire counter gets wet because it sits so high. The arm that the faucet "sits" in had worn away the finish on the handle which looks awful, especially when it less than a year old. Shopping for a new faucet...this one has unfortunately been a waste of money.

Just had to add....
I had to write a review after reading the negative on this faucet. I've had mine for 4 years. No problem, nada, zip, nothing but raves from friends, family and guests. Definitely the head turner! I am at the site to order a replacement head. I don't need one (yet), but I just removed the original to soak in order to clean out some lime deposits that are clogging the holes. I will be putting the house on the market in 5 years and thought a new head would look nice in the future (it's the only thing showing wear). I have purchased this same faucet for my son-in-law, a professional chef, who fell in love at first sight. Oh did I mention I installed this faucet MYSELF, no problem!

Great faucet at a nice price! I replaced a Delta pull out faucet that leaked from day one. I am elated at the looks and performance of this baby!
When I orginally read about this faucet, I thought the plastic nozzle was a little cheezy, but turns out you wouldn't want it to be metal...you couldn't hold it with hot water at maximum. The control can be mounted at any angle. I put mine straight back at me so no drips on the counter top when turning off with wet hands.
Excellent flow and lateral motion, but will not reach bottom of sink (not a problem).
Buy it, you will like it!

LOVE this faucet! We have received SO many compliments on it's appearance!! But, even more important to us is it's functionality!! It is SO versatile & strong!!! My sister-in-law had one & we fell in love with it and knew we'd order one like this when the time came. We are extremely glad we did! We wanted a hose, but worried about the pull-out types with small children. No worries on that with this industrial type hose. I really can't say enough good things about this. IMPRESSIVE!

High end faucet
This faucet has been with me for almost a year. My plumber could not believe the quality! It is gorgeous! Highly recommended.

It could be Better
From the start I loved this look and design. I have been using this faucet about 6 months now. It is a sturdy, well-built faucet. However the faucet does turn completely 360 degrees which has caused water to go onto the backboard of my sink and wall at times when washing a big item. I don't like that water pressure has to be rather high for the spray feature to remain on in the hands free method, yet I do like that once faucet is turned off, the spray feature is deactivated. Because I have a deep sink, I may not have needed a faucet to be so high. This high faucet does cause water to go onto counter more often than lower faucet. Over all it is a good faucet.
