Forte Shower Trim Package with Single Function Shower Head and Rite Temp Technology
Good but quality disappointing
I was shocked to see that a Kohler faucet would be plastic. I did see that comment in one other review but bought it any how. The insides are good, ceramic bearings, so that's why I went ahead with the product. The surrounds are plastic, very cheaply made. Too bad the description doesn't say Plastic! I bet everyone will be disappointed. The shower head, handle and the water snout are metal, but the big cover around the handle is cheap plastic supposed to look like brushed metal. I am very disappointed with that and surprised Kohler would do that. The largest part of the three pieces is plastic and it looks cheap.

Dissapointed With Quality
I received the product in a very timely manner and it was packaged well. The look of the product was nice but I was dissapointed that the outer housing on the single handle piece is plastic. This concerns me for cleaning purposes as I believe it will scratch easily and not wear well over time.

I ordered this same product about three years ago when building my house and the esctucheon was a metal chrome. This time it's plastic! I called Kohler customer service to see if I could get one in metal... not anymore. Very disappointed with Kohler now.

Great Shower Handle and Shower Head
Great quality product as expected from Kohler. Shower head has a great spray radius. Handle has a great design and you only have to turn 180 degrees from off to cold to hot. Only issue is the water pressure coming from the head. I have 90 psi water pressure so was expecting a little more power. Not sure if this is b/c of design or installation. Overall a great product!

practical and stylish
There is not a lot to say about shower hardware. The shower handle is pleasing to look at and functions easily . There is only one mode of shower spray which is pleasant on the skin. Not too hard nor too soft. I would like to say I was disapointed with the flange behind the shower handle. Its made of plastic. I mean for the high cost and being a Kohler product I expected to get a metal. Well time will tell how it will hold up. Otherwise I would give this faucet a thummbs up.

Kohler Forte Replacement
Bought a new house and this shower faucet was installed in one bathroom. Installer screwed up the installation and shower trim was broken. Ordered this as a replacement and installed myself. Seems like Kohler redesigned some of the parts (for the better) from the time of the first installation. Works well, but I prefer a thermostat shower valve where you set the temperature desired and just leave it.

LOVE this Fixture
This is a beautiful, high quality fixture. It looks great, performs smoothly, has a great soft flow from the shower head. This fixture is fantastic. I would absolutely recommend it. We bought the valve that was recommended for installation with this fixture - it required a professional plumber to install - but was still worth every penny.

Stunning Trim Set
I bought this trim set to match my bathroom faucet and I love the way it looks. The shower head provides excellent water flow and coverage. My plumber did mention that the rough-in valve was one of the largest he'd ever seen, but he didn't have any problems installing it.

Excellant Price & Quality
Our order arrived within a few days and the price was excellent. We've always been satisfied with the quality of Kohler products. We haven't installed this shower faucet yet because we're still refinishing our bathroom, but we're completely satisfied with our order.

Very happy with purchase, overall...but
Overall, we are very happy with this product. We also purchased the Forte sink faucets, and they all look, and work great. My only concern is the rite-temp feature, and being locked into that with regard to the hot water temperature.
