The installed floor is beautiful and was an excellent value so top marks on both accounts. This type of floor is not for the DIY unless there is a good level of experience going into the project. The quality of pieces overall was average. Of the first 18 cases we ordered we returned a total of 3 cases due to flaws, warping, and damaged tongues and/or groves. So we ordered 4 more and returned one of those. We had enough lead time to do this and not set our project back. Yet if the flooring had arrived two days ahead of installation to acclimate I am sure that a lot of inferior pieces would have been used.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by seanb Great looking flooring, but pay close attention to each board!
I agree with ordering 10% more as each box contains dinged boards, missing tongues or most importantly boards that are milled 1/16-1/8 short (width). The problem is if you don't catch that early your next row has a gap that a floor nailer can't close.
Now to the good, the flooring is beautiful. It has WAY more variety than I anticipated. Many boards have dark streaks in them which make for good accent pieces. The wood is very hard and at times stubborn to get parallel with the nailer. That being said, great value and I would buy this product again without question.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kv2145 The variation in the wood color was expected. It made the placement on the floor great.
The product had great color. However, plan on ordering extra due to warping on the long pieces and spotting on the top coat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mamagoose We finished installation yesterday. This is a good choice for a remodel.
I enjoy the rich color and variation of the hickory. I would enjoy the finished floor more if I had examined each piece CLOSELY before nailing it down. There are some width variations that were unexpected and unattractive. I would also appreciate having access to a product to repair scuffs and such, but Bruce could only say that I should go to my local paint store and ask them to make a custom stain match.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Donato Nice floor for the price
Nice floor for the price , I installed 1500 sq ft and took my time selecting the lengths in order to reduce waste (less then 10%).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RehabJunkie Beautiful flooring at a great price
After shopping for hardwood for a couple of years, I found the Bruce 3/4" solid hickory in autumn wheat. The stain on this floor allows for the color variances in the hickory to show beautifully without the stark differences apparent in natural stain. The color is warm and goes well with all types of furniture stains due to the variance of color within individual boards. The variance also creates interest without being distracting. The finish has been very durable, and the price of this flooring at Home Depot was about $3 a square ft less than similar products from other retailers. We have had this floor for over two years and still love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Bruce Hickory Autumn Wheat 3/4 in. Thick x 3 1/4 in. Flooring
The flooring looks good. The install was a bear at times due to boards being warped length wise. It became time consuming to get them back in line. There also appeared to be more than a fair share of short pieces, (12 inches or less). I also had an issue with some of the boards not being exactly the same width. This required some extra work to keep the gap closed between boards.
