I have installed Kohler Wellworths in 4 houses and they have never  
given me a problem. Relatively cheap too and available at Home Depot.  
I like the extended bowl as the standard ones are bit short but the  
mechanics are the same. I put a Kohler Memoirs toilet in another house  
and it worked 98% as well, but it fit the decor much better.

A friend installed Toto in her house and it worked ok, but used more  
water for suction than it did for bowl rinsing and I didn't think it  
did a good job at the latter. The seat closing damper was nifty  
though, no more SLAM at 3am! Wouldn't be surprised if these were now
