Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good system, but filters are overpriced Overall, the system is a good one. It's easy to install and the indicator light is very useful. The filters need to be replaced every couple months in our house, but how long they last depends how much you use them, so this may be different for other families. The only complaint I have is that the replacement cartridges for this filter are more expensive than any other filter system brand. I've heard less pricy brands work just as well as this one. If you don't mind paying more, this is a very good product and it does work well. When I replace this one someday, I, personally, will go with the brand that doesn't charge so much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design This model, though inexpensive, is not worth purchasing, especially if you have any difficulties with your fingers/'hands. The knob to switch from filtered to unfiltered water is shaped in reverse - it is hard to maneuver as it is tapered & thin on the outer edge where you need to grip. If it was thick for the entire length, it would be easier to grasp. Mine got harder & harder to turn over the few months I had it until I had to resort to pliers to grasp & turn. It also would not stay tight on the faucet & frequently sprayed the user. Model FF-100 is a much better product, and worth the additional money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like my Brita filter and will not live without it!!! I was spending lots of money on bottled water and was drinking eight or more bottles of water a day to maintain hydration and realized that's a lot of plastic (and money when compared to a filter)!! So I decided to try the Brita filter for home use that would not only reduce plastic waste but would also keep me from spending so much money on bottles of water. I first used the Brita pitcher but then decided to use the faucet filter so I don't have to keep refilling the pitcher so often. It's been about five years since purchasing my first Brita filter and will continue to buy Brita . The Brita filter has meant my filtered water needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't like new spray design I've used Brita for years and think it's the best on the market. However, the new one I just bought does not produce a single stream of water, it has 5 smaller holes and produces a spray. I used to be able to put my large bottle in the sink and it would fill very nicely. The new spray pattern goes every where but in my bottle. Why was this done?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Filter - Terrible Unit I love the filters that Brita makes and have used them for years. We started with the pitchers and when the faucet units came out we got those because of the convenience. Unfortunatey, the faucet unist are poorly designed and poorly manufactured. They have a plastic piece to screw on to the metal faucet and the threads strip within weeks even when you are not removing the unit from the faucet. After replacing 5 faucet units in 6 months - including one that Brita replaced because it failed in 4 days - we gave up and went back to the pitchers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to use I purchased this filter when my prior faucet filter wore out. This one is very difficult to switch on and on because the shape of the knob is difficult to hold, expecially if your hands are wet, slick or arthritic. The light is not strong enough to read unless you are directly over it, not easy at the kitchen sink. I get angrier each time I try to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Quality I have purchased three basic systems in a row (I usually get complete but both my stores were out). All three products didn't work properly! The filter light didn't work, so while I trust brita products, I can't tell how long the products are effective. The complete system is back in stock now, so I have purchased another one. However, I spent almost $100 on three basic systems that didn't work. That was very disappointing so I wouldn't ever recommend the basic product. Not sure if it was a bad batch or what, but the systems just didn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great We started out with a Pur faucet filter, which was, IMHO, garbage. In very little time, the body of the filter housing cracked. We replaced it, and the replacement cracked. After we bought a third one (steel jacketed) and it leaked, we gave up. We bought a Brita filter unit and have been very satisfied with the design, durability, ease of use, and taste of the water. We'll definitely stick with Brita.
