Default Experience with Glacier Bay Westminster Toilet?

After doing a Google search for "toilet testing", and reading a
December 2003 report, two toilets caught my eye... The Toto Drake,
which I'm about to pick up for $229, and a cheaper toilet, the Glacier
Bay Westminster, sold at Home Depot for $99.

That seems incredibly cheap for a toilet, which makes me think the guy
misquoted the price over the phone, or that it has poor quality
otherwise despite being a top-ranker with regard to flushing
performance.

So before I make it my second toilet, does anyone have experience with
the Westminster? Does it break or leak? Any input would be
appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've got a Glacier Bay one-piece (is that Westminster?).
They're a Chinese knock-off of the TOTO (now whose ox is gored?).

I love it. Flawless flushing...no matter what.
One drawback is that the "water spot" (diameter of the water
in the bowl) is small. This can make cleaning more frequent.

I had to fit a toilet into a very small space and this one was perfect.

Actually, the Westminster is a standard 2 piece. It looks a little,
um, antique-ish, in that is has some recessed styling. It also has a
slightly higher than average rim.

Unfortunately, Glacier Bay doesn't have web site for toilets to show a
picture.
