I have to second this. We have this model and are happy with it. Another

Look for a glazed trap, and an oversized trap. I have a toto which
works very well, but is pricey. My son had to replace one of his and
got an American Standard Cadet, which cost far less and appears to work
just as well. I went with him to Lowe's to buy it, and noticed that the
packaging and labels at the store don't give the information you need
(size of trap, etc.), so you have to get that elsewhere.

Forget high efficiency toilets and get happy with your old toilet. It
flushes better than any high efficiency one you are likely to put in its
place and is potentially more efficient as well.
Just cut the rubber bubble beneath your new non-leaking flapper enough to
cause a siphon for urine uses and hold it longer for bowel movements. (the
bubble float-holds the flap up until the tank nearly empties.) If you
accidently cut the bubble too much - as in removing it alltogether - just
hold it longer, enough to start the siphon flush necessary to carry off
Hmmm. At a difference of 2.4 gallons per flush and $3/1000 gallons, you'll
save about seven-tenths of a cent per flush. The cheap toilet, $75, should
pay for itself in a little over 10,000 flushes. Assuming 3 flushes per day
per person, that's 9 person/years.
A family of 3 could save enough water to pay for the new toilet in but three
years - for the cheap toilet. For the more expensive toilet, twelve years.
Less, of course, the opportunity cost of investing the $75 - $300 in the
stock market. The actual difference could be millions.
