Arden Metal Lever Handles
Two sets had styling and mounting differences
I ordered two sets of these lever handles, but they had slight styling and mounting differences. One set had the styling groove just below the handle bar as shown on the picture, while the other set did not. I must have received a new style set and an old style set. The other difference was the mounting details. The set without the groove has a plastic insert which interfaces with the valve spline, while the other set does not have the plastic insert and has a metal to metal spline interface. The plastic insert makes for a less rigid connection (lower quality feel and function) between level and valve. I called customer service and they sent out a replacement set right away, and I am to send back the one that does not match. Unfortunately, the replacement set sent to me had the plastic insert, so I have two sets now with the lower quality design.

pretty but broke
I bought these handles from another vender but based my purchase on the reviews from this website. Just by turning the left handle today it broke. The right handle broke when the contractor was installing it. He fixed it but now that the left one broke I have to return them. I am surprised and disappointed that this happened. I would not recommend these handles

Avoid Chrome Finish
Although I do really like faucet/handles, they feel great and look great, I wish I would not have gotten the chrome finish. It looks great but it doesn't stay looking great for long and water/soap spots instantly appear. I don't like wiping down my faucet after each use. So get the brushed or other finish.

Solid Choice for Faucet
The Grohe Arden collection is a a classy look for a great price. I've had them about a month and am happy with the day to day appearance. If you do not want to spend a lot of money on your fixtures, the Arden is simple and sleek, always the way to go when you are trying for a nice look on a budget.

The "cap" on the top both of the handle was so tight it sqeaked when when I loosed it. It required a pipe wrench to loosen which scored it and I am thinking of sending it back. The handle quality is fine it's just that the compound for the threaded portion had dried making it stuck,
