Answer: 
You should be able to use any of the panels made for drop ceilings. I have used a couple of different styles, and never had a problem.

Answer: 
Yes, you can use almost any 2' x 2' tile, or 2' x 4' tile. The Sahara tile is like what I used-- it lets the T-bar be recessed a little bit. That looks nice, but at the edges of the ceiling and wherever you have to cut the tiles, it will not be recessed, which makes it just a little less perfect when you look closely.

The kit covers 64 square feet. Using two kits I will still be short 1 hanger and 1 runner. I do not plan to buy a third kit for 2 pieces. If I can't get individual pieces I guess I will have to abandon the product and go another route

Answer: 
I would think so, you might need to lightly sand them first, or use paint suitable for plastic. It's like PVC plastic.

Yes, they could be painted, but PVC needs a little bit of prep work before painting with either acrylic or latex paint.

Answer: 
Yes, I installed this system at my previous property and will be installing at my new house in the next couple of weeks. You may be able to move the cross tees to slide out one tile or more. Or you can pop out the runner and then slide out several tiles. I am over 6 foot and in a older home this is a great product to use.

It does seem to be a little too involved to get access to space above but the upside is that you get a higher ceiling than standard suspended ceiling approach and that is pretty important.

Too flimsy, two side channels looked like they were stepped on, needed a ceiling the would gain me access to access panels and a "hanging grid work " would have granted me that plus my existing joists were not that level or spaced 16 on enter, an 90 odd year old house, here a conventional dropped ceiling grid would have been easier to install. I bought this because of the reviews and had it delivered to my home. I was running out of time so I went ahead and installed it when I probably should have returned it. I did however learn some new words.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good way to save ceiling height The product allowed me to put a ceiling in a basement with a height of 6'3" withought losing much height. The system only needs 3/4 ". We had to reapply a few of the hangers due to uneven joists. The system is expensive for what you get, but it's the only product out there that allows you to hang ceiling tiles with only a small sacrifice in space. I like the final result we got with PVC ceiling tiles. The support grid worked as promised and required a low skill level to install. we had to cut notches in one faulty hanger strip. Shett metal snips worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy This product is exactly what I needed. Moved into a house with a big basement that needed some finishing although it looked like was ready for a ceiling. Not a drop ceieling but something else. Since I am not a carpenter I saw this product and tried it. it easy to use. bi didn't even have to use a drill. I used a driver with Phillips instead and did not drive them into the drywall. Instead I put the screws in 2 x 4w which worked perfectly without a problem. I would say to make sure you measure and keep the rails straight. it looks flimsy but once you have the parts in place seems very sturdy. it holds 2 4 ceiling tiles with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ceiling system met all my requirements Ceilingmax is an excellent product that installed as directed and looks very nice. I am not sure I could have installed it entirely by myself although I did 90 percent of the work without my trusty assistant (my wife). Not that I plan to access the ceiling again, it is good to know that I can remove the tee's and tiles to gain access if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hanging system This was my first time hanging ceilings and it is simple to do. The trick is do row by row and mount the ceiling as u finish each cross T so u can adjust as u reach the end and dont have to be exact measurements. I will highly recommend this ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cover up ever. Very easy to use, this was the second time I have used this product. First time was a basement ceiling, this time was to cover up an ugly bathroom ceiling. It is very easy to install, even for a person working on their own. Mounts directly to the existing ceiling or unfinished joists so there is minimal loss of height.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watch your dimensions! The packaging stated that the system covered 64 sq feet. My room measured a shade over 61 sq feet so I assumed I was safe. However I didn't take the perimeter measurements into account. The system comes with four 8 foot wall brackets ( 8 x 8 = 64 sq feet, perimeter = 32 feet). My room measured 11 feet 3 inches by 5 feet 6 inches ( 11.25 x 5.5 = 61.875 sq feet, 33 feet 6 inches). While the square footage was good the perimeter was not and I did not have enough wall bracket for the job. Called the technical support line to try and order one but was told that there would be a $25 breakage fee for a $4 item. Home Depot doesn't carry the brackets. Menards has them for 4 something but there is a minimum order of 24 pieces. I finally paid $11 for one on Amazon. MAKE SURE YOUR PERIMETER IS UNDER 32 FEET!
