Looks alright.

no apple logo you mean ?

requires minimum 0.5 bar pressure, fine if you have a high pressure system/combi boiler, if you have gravity fed system
cold water tank in loft you might get flow problems ideally need 0.2 bar flow for gravity fed systems without a pump.
Also if when you need replacement cartridges will they still have same stock in a year.
good price if it meets your water pressure if not you would be wasting your time and money.

Decent tap - we have one in a downstairs toilet. A tad noisy though!

Well that's certainly a point in its favour, yes

Amazon sell similar taps for £10. I bought two recently after scouring all the websites and DIY stores. Fitted them myself no problems.

Pretty good value but only 720p.

Mixer taps have cartridges?

Good deal anyways, if the quality is OK. I paid over £100 for my Grohe and Franke ones, but as the plumber call out charges in London are so expensive and I know almost nothing about taps, I took the cautious route and paid more (than I guess I should) for brand name taps to lower the risk of them breaking down too soon.

For what its worth, I have this tap in my downstairs and upstairs bathrooms in use for about 4 years. I also have the matching set on the bath itself. They work fine. I got mine from eBay. When the first lot arrived it arrived with a plastic filter which shot water out. I contacted the seller and they sent two aerators which solved the problem straight away. Anyway, no issues from me. Would recommend.

For gravity fed systems, wher you have a tank in the loft say, a metre (3ft 3" in old money) equals 0.1 bar head (10M =1.0 Bar), so the head is from the top water level in your tank, to the point where the water comes out of your tap. Typical upstairs, would probably be 2-3 meters so 0.2 to 0.3 bar, downstairs obviously just add the metreage. If you have a pumped system, you would probably get at least 0.5 bar (5 metres head equivalent) or 1.0 Bar (10 metres head equivqlent) Depends on your pump.Hope this helps.;)

To determine what is high quality, you need to know who manufactures it. The fact they tell you it's "high quality" means nothing. If it's someone like Bristan, fine... It's good that it has a ceramic valve. Sorry, I want a named brand.
