Rain Shower Installation

I am considering switching out my working but aging Moen shower faucet for one with lots of pizzazz, like the one shown here,
https://www.amazon.ca/Jiayoujia-Sing...+ceiling+mount
or something of that nature, but would like some feedback from those experienced with this type of hardware before I commit to doing this.

Is this made in China?
What is the quality of this brand?
How do LED lights perform over time?
How good are "ceramic" valves compared to brass valves? And this one in particular?

Thanks,

quickcurrent

Just looking at the name I would say it's obvious where it comes from. I would be leary of that faucet. LED lights can work but you've got electronics in close proximity to water so I would expect them to die at some point. Where will you get replacement parts?

This product comes with a standard shower valve without scald prevention feature.

There is no mention of volume/pressure requirements for the 12" shower head and LEDS powered by a dynamo is just something else to fail.

Ceramic valve components are common but considering where it was made I wonder about the quality.

I would pass on this.

Thanks for your comments, guys. I had the same misgivings but was wondering if anyone had tried these units and had good success with them. Doesn't look like it.
