Hands-free bathroom faucet: Speakman S-9512 SENSORFLO

The Speakman Sensorflo S9512 is a replacement for our old Moen Monticello bathroom faucet.  The hot-water handle snapped a few weeks ago so with little kids in the house, we thought it might be worth ditching the handles all together and upgrading to a hands-free faucet.  After some online research and reading other consumer reviews, we settled on the Speakman Sensorflo S-9512.  How does it fair?

GoPro or Go-slow with the HERO 3 Black?
