Softer floor, but looks very nice and great price/product for a low traffic room.
Initially when I looked at the flooring out of the box I was skeptical at its appearance. It looked fine, I just didn't know how it would look in our particular room. After installing, I can say I am quite happy with this purchase. You can see the attached picture of the final results in our roughly 15 x 15 ft bedroom. It looks way better than expected.

floor you will definitely scratch it (I dropped my hammer during installation and the metal part definitely scratched it). However, we knew this going in (home depot lists it as a 2 out of 5 on their hardness scale). The softness is not a problem for us because it is in a low traffic room (our bedroom) and we are careful with our furniture (don't drag it and cover feet with pads as extra precaution).
Anyways if you don't mind the softness of the wood it is a great price as well as good for the environment.
My dad and I did this over the course of 4 days (he has experience doing this in his house as well) so installation went smooth. Like with most hardwood, the color of the pieces varies from box to box slightly so make sure you pull from different boxes while you placing the pieces so you don't get to many off colors in one spot.
The only other thing I can think of that might be relevant is that I have not tried cleaning it yet. I am pretty sure with this type of wood a lot of moisture is bad for it (so don't think you should wet mop it). So I would recommend researching that and getting the correct cleaning product for this type of floor.
