4" Four Function Hand Shower with 69" Hose and Slide Bar
I purchased the Moen 3867 shower head with slide bar to replace a cheaper model we'd purchased and installed when our home was built 10 years ago. We went with Moen throughout our home but we had this one off brand model........and there's just no comparison to a Moen. This shower head has 4-settings, which is plenty for me, and each setting gives you a unique shower experience. I love this shower head and the force of the water it allows. Great product - I'd highly recommend it. It sits snugly in the slide holder and can be positioned up and down the slide bar to fit even a child showering. I love, love, love it!

In reference to "Not As Expected" (June 11, ‘10), and as we are having 4 of this model Euro shower installed shortly in our new home, I was worried by the comment that the shower only pointed straight forward. I have always had hand held showers, and none mis-performed like this. An immediate trip to the builder’s supply store confirmed that the shower performs propely: it slides up and down, and articulates fully, from pointing almost straight up to pointing straight toward the floor. If it gets loose, there’s an adjustment screw inside the holder. Perhaps the above referenced hardware was improperly installed.
My ave rating is because I have not actually used the shower as yet.

Very nice but don't get chrome
I bought this in the nickel finish. It is very well made and good quality. The shower fixtures are definitely made of metal. They have a good heft to them. However, this only applies to the non-chrome version. The chrome version is painted plastic and is a completely different product.
Make sure to install the vacuum breaker on the supply side of the hose.
Moen doesn't make a soap dish for this but I used a different brand soap dish. It works fine. Just measure the bar diameter.

Not as Expected
This is an expensive component. Unfortunately, if is limited to only hand held use and cannot be used for showering. This is because the bracket only allows the shower head to point straight forward. I actually have no idea why it comes with an adjustment bar because it is useless. I have had several hand held showers in the past and every one of them could be tilted to be used for showering. Very disappointing. Otherwise the quality is good, just the design is poor.

Much Better than No-Name Generics
Tried couple of sprayers and was not satisfied. This Moen works well in all spray patterns. The connections easily allow for repositioning of the sprayer along the length of the bar and holds well so far (installed couple of weeks only). The bar is plastic though it looks like metal so it definitely is NOT A GRAB-BAR.. Also, I connected mine to a diverter even though the info seems to suggest that a wall spigot is required. With a diverter I can control using one or two or both heads at the same time.

Good looks and function
We have several Moen faucets and shower controllers in our home, some in continuous service for 31 years. Ordered this Moen hand shower to use in our newly updated main bathroom shower. The polished brass is very attractive, the shower head puts out plenty of water and it was easy to install.
This our fourth order placed with Faucetdirect and items were competitively priced, shipped promptly, were well packaged and arrived timely. We couldn't be more pleased with the service or products.

We ordered this showerhead to put in our back bathroom for my mother. The fact that it is adjustable and she can sit on her showerchair and reach it is one of the main reasons we chose this...However-- I love using it as well in the "high" position. The choice of shower settings is fantastic, love the fact that I can get the massage-like setting on my back!

nice but expensive
make sure of mounting location that you have wood blocking for long screws and a special bit was used to drill thru our tile and backer board. also slide piece needs to clear any tille borders that may stick out. note : some parts are plastic covered with brush plastic finish.

Installed this in a child's bathroom and it is working great for rinsing hair at the end of bathtime. Showerhead seems nice and it's fairly easy to adjust spray pattern. The handle rest does tilt to allow positioning of head at desired angle for optimal shower angle.

nice to look at, works very poorly, suggest no one
the shower head is too heavy for the holder it is in and therefore either points straight ahead or down at the floor. It doesn't matter how tight the screw is. my shower head will not tilt at any angle with out rotating down. I am very disappointed in the design of this shower.
