I was assembling a set of speaker boxes for my home theater. I was pricing wood, and found this stuff to be half the price of plywood. I figured "Why not?" and had them cut 3 sheets to my specifications.
The stuff cuts and drills exactly like standard plywood. For my purposes, it was better than regular plywood, as I could cut the wood for its maximum use, and not have to worry about grain direction.
This stuff stains very well. I used a water based stain, and was surprised to find that it didn't swell, like regular plywood would. When stained, it looks a lot like a Jackson Pollock painting.
I am very happy with this. It made very sturdy speaker boxes.

We used these on shelves for storing furniture. So far they're working great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron Poor Appearance & Quality
Bought 25 sheets on Sunday 10-18-15. The edges are green and the tag says Norboard. I've bought approximately 60 sheets of Georgia Pacific from Lowe's in the last 4 months and this Norboard is no where close to the GP stuff from Lowe's. Comparing them side by side, the Norboard stuff is made of much smaller pieces and the rough side is all dimpled. It's resembles heavy hail damage to a car. Also, none of the pieces lay flat, they're cupped the long way. It'll work for what I need it for, but I just wanted to point of out the horrible appearance and quality

I purchased for use as basement shelving. Had store pre-cut into 2X8 sheets. Quality was great for this use. Pricing was excellent for market. I would recommend this product for similar use.
