Latest toilet info/advice- What's best toilet?

It's been awhile since this mattered but a few years back when remodeling some bathrooms the Toto Drake was the best toilet around. I bought some and loved them.
What's the latest real world experience?
On the MaP website many flush >=1000 grams and the Toto's are rated at about 800 grams.
Thoughts? advice? experience?

PS: Not sure this is the correct place to post this question

I dunno, I can't get worked up over a toilet... Beer taps, yes!

I'll move you to the Mud Box.

Based on Terry Love's plumbing site, I went with a Toto Soiree. Love the straight sides--doesn't collect dust like the kind that show the trap. Works well; easy to clean.

American Standard Champion is pretty good. I have three of them in my home. Never used a plunger on them. The trap diameter is 2 3/8", 1/2" bigger than most toilets. It's about $225 at Lowe's.

We put in a Toto Aquia II in our recent remodel. Beautiful sleek lines (for a toilet) and we love the dual flush. Only 0.8 gal for liquids but plenty of flush power when you need it. I'll put another one in our next bath, but I'm hoping they'll add the sanigloss finish to the Aquia by then.

Toto's are a personal favorite, but whatever terlit you choose, use a Sani-Seal gasket for a lifetime of worry free service.

I've put in several American Standard Cadet 3's. They have a great flush (3" flush valve), look good for a toilet, and are $163 at Lowes. Everybody I know who has one likes it.
