    Both are very good options with the first one stating comfort height.
    I assume this would refer to ADA height requirements.

    I'm pretty sure that comfort height refers to 16", so any toilet that meets that height req. would qualify as comfort height whether they advertise it as a feature or not. I have Kohler toilets and have not had any major issues with them. But I understand that Toto toilets rate highly too. (and it's more fun to say :p)

    You're correct. I read the 1st dim. as height.

    We decided to go with the ToTo....since that is what the other two bathrooms in our house currently have. I hope it was the right choice.
