    I like the TOTO Drake II
    CST454CEFG
    Comfort height
    Elongated bowl
    Sanagloss
    Double Cyclone rinse

    The original Drakes are good too.
    CST743E
    CST744E
    CST744EL

    For Kohler products, I go with the Cotton.

    If you like the style, the Vespin or Vespin II are essentially copies of the Drake but with a different style. I, personally, like the skirted style.

    Good news is, regardless of which of the Toto toilet models you select, you will have a superior product.

    One question asked and never answered was regarding the quality of a Toto purchased on line compared to a local supply house. The quality will be the same. The drawback of buying a toilet of any kind on line is the risk of damage in shipping. If you buy on line, you want to inspect it very carefully before accepting delivery. If you find a defect, then you have recourse, but that will take time. Now if the local supply house prices seem too high, you perhaps should shop around a bit. If the price difference still seems worth going on line, then you know the potential delays if a defect is found. That could be a deal breaker or not, just depending on how immediate you need the new toilet.

    Thanks to all of you who gave advice . I did shop online but found a local supply house that gave me the same price as online. After I got home I just assumed the numbers on the box was the same that Terry gave me for the drake ii and the numbers were not the same . again thanks George

    The Drake II Combination, CST454CEFG consists of a C454CEFG bowl and the ST454E tank.

    I've never heard reports of variations of QA/QC between any online verses brick and mortar sales locations...Toto does not sell seconds.
