LightRoc 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was over all okay Some of the boards had cracks and corners missing but worked around it because I needed to finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Great product for our home renovation. The sheets are well constructed, and actually are a little lighter than the original drywall sheets. Not by much, but it helps in moving them around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied with product. I have used this product on two jobs, and did not care for product. It is not as robust as regular rock. it breaks easily, and does not trim without crumbling. When scoring product with knife it seems to have voids (you can feel them when cutting). Will go back to regular drywall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get the good stuff!!!! Inferior product. Outer paper, especially the finish face, is not durable and scapes off and is easily damaged when handling and setting tape and trims. Cheap junk that makes doing a good job difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff. For sheetrock it was on the heavy side but still light enough for me as a woman to work with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth it. I'm a pro, after doing one room I decided to rip it off the wall and start over with another product. Just to much waste in taping and it still looked bad. I would give this negative stars if I could. Spend a dollar more and get a the better products. this stuff crumbles when cutting, not mention a host of other draw backs, to many to mention. just stay away form this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Lighter weight board that hangs like the heavy weight board and is easier on the back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from How could you not like this? "Feels" different when cutting and shaving yes, but not significantly different so how could you not love this stuff? It's lighter and easier to install. The same goes for the new and lighter Durock. My question is where has this stuff been for the last thirty years? !!
