    I was going to get an Eljer Titan for about $300 until I started reading about the Toto. So now I'm considering these as well: Toto UltraMax, Toto Drake CST744S and the CST734F Dalton

    The Drake is cheaper than the UltraMax and the optional SanaGloss finish adds a bit more. How are these pricing points? Since I'll be installing it myself, which is better for the price? And easier to install?

    It doesn't matter that the toilet is one or two pieces, unless the one piece is much better.

    Looking forward to your expert advice.

    I handle this pretty well in the toilet report below.

    The Drake is the two piece version of the Ultramax, but without the slow closing seat.

    It's more about looks than function.

    Reasons for a one-piece,
    Slightly quieter
    Comes with the seat
    No cleaning between tank and bowl
    Tank doesn't need installing
    Looks, purely subjective here

    The Drake and the Ultramax, the first to come out with the larger flush valve and the long sweeping trapway have been doing very well.

    Titan, a copy of the taller Drake that works pretty well.
    Quality does not look as nice as the Toto line though. Nobody buys the Titan if they look at the Drake side by side.

    Terry,

    I respect your opinion and will go with the one-piece sans the special coating.

    Thanks for your very prompt response!
