Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FunkyModernDIYer Great product, it transformed my dining room!
This is a really great product, and it has totally transformed our dining room. We used these white tiles, along with the black version to create stripes instead of checkers. They were so easy to use, especially because the wooden floor we put them on already had some glue leftover from the layer we ripped off. Trimming them was easy with a utility knife. For our first "putting down a new floor" experience, it couldn't have been easier. The only complaint is that because the tiles were shipped to our house, the top tile had a corner that broke off. But we just used that tile for a piece that had to be cut. Otherwise, amazing product, and we'll probably continue the same pattern into our kitchen because of low price and ease of use!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AngelB1 Looks beautiful
I installed these tiles in our bathroom a week ago to replace the old one. First I removed the old vinyl tiles using a utility knife, putty knife and warm water; then I used wood patch to cover imperfections in the floor. I made sure the floor was clean and smooth. Then I installed the new tiles one by one, and cut them when it was necessary using the utility knife on the back of the tile. I snapped the tiles along the incisions made on the back of the tiles, and I finished the cut using the knife or scissors. To remove the old tiles takes time, but to install the new tiles, it is easy and fast. I still cannot believe I did it myself. My bathroom looks much much better. I am so happy with the result and proud of myself. I still have to paint the wall baseboard and apply caulking. I love my floor and now I have more projects in mind!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by momof4 Black adhesive shows between tiles when installed
These tiles have a strong adhesive and a shiny finish. Unfortunately, the adhesive is also black and no matter how hard one tries, it is impossible to lay them without the black adhesive showing between the white tiles. UGH. We did the best we could with white epoxy grout to cover the black lines between the tiles, but it just looks dingey now.
If I had been doing black and white checkerboarding of these tiles, it would have been fine. Alas, I just wanted a plain white floor in an oddly shaped children's bathroom. Pulling up the tiles wasn't an option due to the stickiness of the adhesive. We will just live with area rugs over the bigger spaces.
These turned a great renovation of a bathroom into a sorry disappointment. I don't even like going in the room now.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by demogirl Pretty good for the price
The product looks good. I put down on new rough grade plywood which I primed with zinsser 123 first. I already knew about the black glue and cracks, which I didn't care. It's 70cents a square foot, what do you expect. Your'e going to see cracks in all the cheap vinyl tiles. The only problem I have with them is that I don't think there is enough glue on them. The ones I took out of the mobile home I had to pry off, they had enough glue but worked themselves apart anyway, which is what I suspect these will do too. But seeing how it's just about the same manufacturer for all of them, they are probably all that way. Some of the tiles but not many had defects like a bump, or only half glued, or no glue at all. One trick in high traffic areas or bumpy spots in your floor is to add some of the glue that the commercial floor tiles call for. Only problem is you have to smear it on and then wait for hours for it to get tacky before installing, so this is only for spot areas. Make sure you use leveling compound and knock down any nails before installing and then prime floor for good adhesion over dry woods. Then scrape any bumps up as you install. Over all it made the dungeon trailer look like a modern gloss white home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYGuynotaPro Good Value,Easy installation,Looks very nice
I reviewed the black tile previously,(check the other review,under DIYGuynotaPro).Great value for a non-commercial grade self-stick tile.Recommended that an acrylic primer/bond enhancer, be applied to the sub-floor with a paint roller before installation of tile.Tiles are pressed down firmly by hand and then rolled over with a wall paper seam roller,over each tile.(Recommended to use a 100lb.roller when you're finished) Rent one @Home Depot. The tile installs easily and really sticks in place,they look really nice and will accent a room nicely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ShelbyDodge Quality product, used to create a great checkerboard design
A friend wanted a retro "checkerboard" pattern tile floor in her house and I was really surprised that I had such a a hard time finding them. I initially checked some large online resources I use for collectibles & electronics but they only carried an off brand that had very poor customer reviews.
I talked to numerous people in the flooring section at my local hardware stores and they said they didn't carry them and provided no further resources.
After reading an online article about checkerboard floors that mentioned the Armstrong product line (and that Home Depot carries it) I asked one more time and they looked these up on their website.
The quality is impressive, they also have a slight "knockdown" kind of texture to them which will help scuffs & imperfections from showing up. They are a thicker mil than the previous ones that she had in her kitchen. It was my first time installing tile in a large room and they were easy enough to apply and they came out quite well. My friend is extremely happy. She bought additional ones to do her kitchen as well. Highly recommended!!
One extra thing that was excellent- free shipping to your home. Each box weighs over 35 lbs (and we bought four) so I couldn't imagine what shipping would be.

I installed checkered pattern in my garage. Best bang for your buck I would say. I would give it a 5 star if it was a bit easier to clean.
