The report below is consisted of homeowner and plumbers input.
Not two guys that wear a white smock.
The best toilets for plumbers and homeowners have been the Toto line.
You won't find those at the home centers.
But then frankly, you don't find much of anything at the home centers that I would buy.
I buy my lumber at a lumber store, my carpet and tile from someone that sells those, and I get my plumbing from "plumbing" stores.
You will notice that the other "ratings" don't mention "returns" and "defect" percentages.
Consumer Reports number one rated toilets over the years have been failures.
Their number one has always slid way down.
Makes you wonder if the check bounced.
One of my big sellers is the round bowl Drake CST744S, $240
Though I sell way more of the elongated bowls at $250
I would only install a round bowl if I had to.
After all, I'm a man.
