Archer 16-7/8" Drop In Bathroom Sink with 3 Holes Drilled and Overflow
I purchased this sink on the Kohler name brand reputation and am extremely disappointed. The sink is poorly finish coated in spots on front area and a small spot on top. My kitchen sink purchased a few years ago made from stainless steel material is also quite thin and lesser quality than the old Kohler unit I removed for remodel purpose. I suggest all who purchase this product examine it closely before installation and then contacting the merchant to see what type of recourse is possible. I have installed mine, spots are small and maybe not seen by others, but still there. The design is quite striking on granite but just lacking in QC.

Nice Sink, Awkward Measurement
Very nice, quality sink overall. The only thing to be aware of is the measurement of the opening that is needed if replacing an existing sink. The width is straightforward and square. However, the depth listed of 19-7/16" is at it's longest part, right in the center. The tapered front edges (sides of arch) are about 18" at the outside edge. This was not listed anywhere that I saw. If you are cutting a new, bigger opening it is not an issue and you can just use the template. However, for me, the existing opening is already 19" square. When ordering, I did not take this into account and I need to either get a new countertop, or rig a filler in there with difficult to match laminate ( which would be suboptimial on my part to say the least).

For the money, this sink can't be beat!
It's a bit larger than anticipated, requiring me to extend the ABS drain pipe outward 2" for the P-trap to fit, so check your measurements twice.
Beautiful, flawless, and solid construction!

very nice sinks
I recently purchased 2 of these sinks for my bathroom remodel...great service from build.com and love the quick shipping! the sinks are beautiful and I really like the edge that will accommodate the liquid soap bottle or other wet items instead of having to set them on the counter like other drop in sinks. Width and depth is spacious to give plenty of room for washing hands and items without touching the sides or bottom. would highly recommend this sink and having the free shipping from build.com makes the price so much less than buying elsewhere. will definitely use build.com again!

Great sink, great store!
I love the Kohler sinks and can't wait to see them installed in our new master bathroom; I have the bathtub in the same suite, so I think it will look great together.
FaucetDirect is awesome! I had originally ordered the sinks online from a big box home improvement store; after a week, they still couldn't give me a ship date, even over the phone. FaucetDirect processed my order and had the sinks delivered to me faster than they process my order cancellation! I will definitely order again.

Beats Brick and Mortar
I'm a contractor in south east Michigan, I checked my supply house for these sinks and they could get them but it would take 2 weeks. I ordered two online and they were less money and I received the sinks in 5 days. All the way around it was a good transaction. I will be using the site again. Thanks FaucetDirect.com

The Kohler Archer sink is beautiful and unique. It has been installed in our recent renovation for a little over a month. I have received many compliments on it, and I am pleased with it. It arrived well-packaged, and in perfect condition. The sink is angular, somewhat rectangular, but with a gently curved front. I paired this sink with a Mansfield Barrett toilet, and they look very good together. The Kohler Archer is less expensive than the Barrett sink, but larger and deeper.
Be aware that the angles create corners that are difficult to clean, which is why I did not give it five stars. Not only are there the upper four corners, but also there's another groove in the bottom of the sink that makes it lovely, but difficult to clean. I would not have purchased this sink if I had realized how the many corners and grooves make it much harder to clean than a more traditional sink. I did not see the details of the angles and corners in the picture online. On the other hand, the wide rim of the topmount sink helps to keep drips and splashes inside the sink, so in that way it helps keep the countertop clean. It's nice that the drips from turning off the faucet with wet hands stay in the sink, rather than puddling on the countertop. I used a single-handle faucet, and it's a great combination.
At this time when undermount and integrated solid surface sinks are so common, I like the unique look of this topmount sink with the extra-wide rim.

Found this sink at the Big Box stores for $ 70.00 more than you guys.
Arrived on schedule with no problems.

I love this sink!
When I found this square over-counter china sink, I knew it would be perfect for our new vanity. It's simple, graceful lines and generous size and depth is exactly what I wanted. I hope this sink is around for awhile b/c if we ever remodel another bathroom, I will want to order it again.

Originally bought this in white at the Home Depot, but decided the black would be a better choice. Build.com was cheaper, and I'm so glad I went with the black. LOVE IT! Delivery was a day sooner than expected, great place to buy from. Don't hesitate to buy from here.
