Concord Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet with Deck Plate and Metal Lever Handle
Very different than I thought it would be
From the picture it looks as though the faucet would stretch or move but it does not. It is too low for even a deep sink and does not move easily. Looks wise it is nice but not very functional.

good look, bad quality
I bought this faucet about 2 weeks ago. My plamber intalled it, and imidiately it started to leek. He came out twice to try to fix it, with no luck. I will probably return it.

One major design flaw
We have purchased this faucet twice. The first time, we loved it. It worked beautifully. The hose design works great for cleaning big pots. But when we recently (July 2012) bought another one for our new house, it was an inferior product. The finish looks plastically which I can live with but the water pressure is unbearably low. It appears Kingston made some design changes that has made this product a disappointment.

solid aesthetically and functionally
Clean looks, easy function. Nice reach for the sprayer without having a pullout hose. Sprayer force is a little weak would be the only negative.

Fun and Functional, quality faucet
I now have Kingston brass in my kitchen as well as my remodeled bathroom! I love the quality and the price, as well as the styling. I read reviews complaining of the "stiffness" of this faucet. I have learned that if you twist the spout to the location you want BEFORE the water is turned on, it moves easily. Once the water is on, it is quite stiff and remains snugly in that location. I consider this a positive actually. It's not so stiff that it can't be moved, but it requires effort when the water is on. The alternative would be a slight bump making water go all over the place!
I like the low exit of the water--reduces splash in a shallow sink. Simply un-hitching the sprayer from the collar makes it rise about 3-4 inches and accommodates most tall things without a hand. Obviously, it can be positioned to almost any reasonable height by hand.
I love the quality, shine, styling, solid brass important parts and solid feel of Kingston Brass. My bath fixtures have performed perfectly 2 1/2 years now. This unit pivots/rotates, and it should say so in the description. I called Kingston Brass to verify that before I ordered it. They have great customer service. The base plate doesn't have "clips" for the outer two holes, so it's a bit "wing-y" when I tried to cover a 3-hole opening in my sink. (Old ones used to have these, but I haven't found a new brand yet that does.) The base plate is temporary for me until I remodel the entire kitchen, no biggy--nothing that a little plumbers putty can't handle. If clips were available, that would be even better.
