Rated 5 out of 5Â by CDuhon Beautiful flooring!
I now have installed this wood flooring in my living room, dining room, kitchen and den and I LOVE it! I installed it in 2 rooms in summer of 2010 and just finished installing it in the other 2 rooms this spring 2012. It is excellent quality especially for the price! We installed it ourselves and found it great to work with. I had only installed unfinished wood flooring before, but quickly fell in love with the pre-finished oak. I read that some people had trouble with the quality of recent lots of the wood. I found that the cases I bought in 2012 were actually better than those bought in 2010. The color was the same, but there was definately more longer boards this time. The waste with this flooring was very minimal. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bcb1 Unbeatable price. Nice looking floor. Dings/Dents easily from pet traffic.
We installed this in our bedroom about 2 years ago. For the price (under $1000) it's an outstanding value. It cost about the same as a low to mid grade of carpet.
We love the look. Note, this grade is what I'd call a mixture of #1 and #2 wood - which means you get a mix of fairly clear wood with some pieces that have knots, dark spots, etc. If you want a floor that is basically all clear (no knots or spots) then you'd need to buy "select" grade, which of course is far more expensive.
It was reasonably easy to install with a pneumatic flooring nailer and the help of a friend with some previous flooring experience. Not too many unusable pieces.
The disadvantage is that the floor dings & dents fairly easily from normal foot traffic and especially from pet traffic. It's not really scratched, it's just that when bright light hits the floor at a certain angle, you can really see all the marks and imperfections - "dings". This is a very high gloss floor so the imperfections show up pretty easily.
I can't really complain...the floor still looks nice even with the minor imperfections from the pet traffic. And after all it is a floor, it's meant to be used and walked on.
I would imagine that when we refinish it in 8 or 10 years, we'll use a higher grade of urethane on the floor, which will hopefully prevent the marks and dings from showing.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by jeranic $5.19 per sq ft.???
Are you kidding me? I have done my living room, dining room, hallway and an upstairs bedroom at different times over the past seven years and it cost me $72 a box. I like my floors so I'll give it a decent rating. Now it's over $100?? Looks like those other rooms won't be getting done any time soon

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Daniel Oak Hardwood Flooring installation
We purchased 9 boxes of this flooring and installed it in our daughters bedroom. I read all the reviews and compared the price with the high end flooring I purchased from a local hardwood flooring manufacturer and the cost was 1/2 the cost from Home Depot. I was concerned and followed the advise from other reviews and purchased 2 extra boxes to account for any bad pieces. I was very pleased and found although some pieces were not perfect I understood this going in when I purchased this material. It is not #1 floor, but rather flooring with character and one must be prepared to make adjustments during the installation. I also made sure when I purchased the nine boxes I had them drawn from a fresh pallet of non opened boxes. I would not recommend purchasing two extra boxes but maybe one extra box. I have no plans to return the remaining boxes because I will use them in another room. I would also recommend opening several boxes and laying out the floor prior to nailing to make sure your pleased with your selection and can mix short and long pieces to make the installation more even throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Darcy Best value for the price at $3 per sq ft. The quality is tops, the color and character: outstanding.
All other rooms in my residence were already 3/4" Bruce hardwood flooring. Although they are "Gunstock" color, this color was on sale so I took a chance. It turned out to complement the Gunstock beautifully and looks amazing.
My entire residence, except the bath, is now covered in this brand of flooring.
