This one says "professional-style" so I wonder if that just means its trying to copy a professional one I guess which is why it says "semi". But what the hell is the difference.

I think you're right - it's just a professional style, but likely not built to professional quality standards with a professional price tag.

I don't know much about kitchen faucets, but the reviews look encouraging and compared to the $250usd price tag over at costco.com, the price seems good, but might not qualify as a hot deal.

It just looks like a "professional" one that they use in commercial kitchens, because they don't care how they look.

I have this and this is the usual price at Costco. Good price compared to other big box stores and it comes with the soap dispenser. It has gone down to $249 I believe; I tried to price match but I was too late

You probably don't want a pro pre-rinse faucet in your kitchen.
1. They're a lot taller, with not mush in the way of looks.
3. They will splash more (see item 1), but who cares in an industrial kitchen with huge stainless sinks?

The faucet body sprayer part unscrews from the flex hose. Its a disposable part. We run 3/4" pex to the hot and cold ports. The faucet hot and cold are separate cartridges and are cheap to replace. The back part of the faucet is fixed to the wall. The flexible part starts after that.

I just found out recently that big box stores such as Home Depot or Lowes will have Moen faucets that look exactly the same as a model sold in a different store. But the price is cheaper, because they are using cheaper parts internally, as a result of getting a big box deal with the manufacturer. That's apparently where the model #1234 vs #1234-A comes into play.

That makes me wonder about some of the goods sold at Costco lately. Like a Sypder fleece jacket. The price was too good to be true, and when I picked it up, it was definitely thinner than other Sypder fleece pullovers I've seen at stores like Sporting Life. I could actually see the light passing through the fabric because it wasn't dense enough.

I wonder if this faucet is similar. Looks the part, but the internals might not be the top tier stuff.

I know it's a matter of personal taste, but I never understood / saw the appeal of these coil ones...

In the Jan 21 - Feb 3 Home Hardware flyer, they have a similar style faucet minus the soap dispenser on sale for between $110-$145 depending on the finish. Location may affect pricing. The Kohler from Costco is likely the superior product, but these ones might be worth considering given the difference in price.

Chrome $110 (reg. $180)
Brushed Nickel $125 (reg. $230)
Matte Black $145 (reg. $200)

Kohler is great, lifetime warranty on all their faucets. Any leaks or issues, you just email them and they'll send you the new part. It's a higher upfront cost, but you shouldn't need to buy another faucet ever again

In commercial Kitchen this would bigger and have more water pressure as it in the dish pit.
