I moved into my house where one of these was already installed.
After 1 year the tap started leaking and we couldn't find a replacement tap for less than a complete new unit so we replaced the whole lot but used the existing mains connection.
The new unit has a better tap with a replaceable washer unlike the old leaky tap, however the spigot is a push in type and it's only a matter of time before the washers wear and it leaks.
At least they should be easier to replace but it's basically bad design.
The cartridge has two arrows on it but only one outlet hole so don't do what I did first time and use the wrong arrow to locate the cartridge or the outlet from the cartridge will be misaligned with the inlet of the female receiver and the water pressure will force water past the O rings drenching the cupboard base.
For the quality and level of filtration this unit gets 5/5 for the unit design it gets 1/5.
If your careful with installation it works fine however the parts are cheap, and the cartridge unit could do with a secondary outer sleeve to prevent water damage when it eventually leaks.
I now keep a clean old take away container underneath just in case as it cost me almost half the cost of the new unit to replace all the products that got ruined when the tap leaked firstly and I incorrectly installed the cartridge secondly.

I am a Plumber and have installed a few of these with no problems. I have one in my own house and it makes a big difference to the drinking water taste quality. Best price for cartridges at B&Q. Julie at Stopcocks Women Plumbers.
Failed after 3 months

Installed in Jan 2010. Mid April the tap started coming on on its own without turning. Seems that the internal thread has stripped. Not actually used very much so disgusting quality. I could have bought a different one for less than half price!
Worked well for 3 yrs

Does make a big difference to taste of water, but over time, the tap leaks from inside the swivel tap, and requires new tap. Also started to leak from where its connected to the water supply causing water damage to the cupboard where it's mounted.
I now need to replace the whole system!
