In USA same model is sold with "Steel Optik Finish" that looks more like satin in pictures. I am assuming as here in Canada it says "Chrome", I expect it to be shiny. From Costco usa website (link in my first post above) some reviewers complaint about splashing and my understanding that relates to depth of your sink, your watter pressure and how much you will push faucet handle to start water. For some people combination of that will make this faucet unusable, other will have deeper sink or will open faucet less to have smaller stream. I am buying just because of the costco warrany - if I will not like this faucet, I will consider returning. But the price for this brand faucet is great, so I will make all attempts to like this faucet :)
There are two versions of this. Few months ago, it was the steel optik version that went on sale on Costco.ca - that one has a brushed satin finish, which is easier to keep clean-looking than chrome when you have hard water. Mine's been great so far - the high arc is great, it's super quiet and smooth, and the weightiness of the handle everything makes it feel quality. Yes, if you turn it on full blast and put a flat object directly under the stream of water, of course it will splash just like every faucet.

Extra hot water coming out means increase energy use too

How would it increase energy usage?
When you run your hot water more will come out then an aerated tap. Depending on how you use your tap, it could double the hot water consumption.

Tell your teenagers that they can take only one twenty minute shower per day, not two. That'll more than offset the taps's hot water usage.

The spout is too thin imo. I like mine thick so I can grip on it without slipping.

I'm the other way, considering this color, but would prefer brushed :)

Just a Tip here ... if you happen to have shut off valves under your sink (which you should) on the hot and cold lines, you can also throttle the water flow by partially closing the valves until you have the desired flow rate coming out your faucet

A good case of style over function but it does look good.

Bought it but now I'm afraid of installation. It seems not to have a mounting plate to cover the holes left by my old faucet. Eek.

Doing this long term depending on the valve quality ( if builder it is cheap) will wear out the stop gate inside that shuts off the water flow. Eventually they can be completely worn out and when you need to actually shut off the water you are sh*t out of luck.
