Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlescrabcake Great Stuff
If you know or learn how to use this product you will have the best results ever. Read the instructions, watch a video or two on YouTube, use a powerful drill with a good mixing attachment, add the dry product to the water 1/4 at a time, mix throughly, move quickly, pour a little into the corners first, back your way out of the area. If you require more than 2 batches you should have a helper, have a measured pre-filled bucket for each batch to save time (you can re-use the same mixing bucket), so you only have to clean one or two at most. You must caulk or fill any hole no how small or the cement will drain out. This product dries fast so keep moving.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DB works good!
I used this product to level a floor that I had removed ceramic tile from. I removed as much of the old thinset as possible but sometimes dug into the concrete while removing it. I needed a flat surface to lay the new tile so I used this product to achieve that. Mix it thin, more workable that way. Need to "help" it flow by using a trowel to move it around some. Doesn't produce a perfectly flat surface but leaves it pretty good

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joker757 Not the best for DIYer
This may very well be a great product for a professional team of contractors however if your a one or even two person DIY team this is not the best product. It sets too quick even with one person mixing and one pouring spreading. Me and my wife did a small bedroom and the results due to the fast dry time was not great. It wasn't horrible and I was able to correct most of the worst stuff with some sanding afterwards. My time between pours was roughly 6-7 minutes and that just wasn't fast enough to keep a wet edge. Also the stuff would stiffen and stop leveling in about 5 minutes after pouring. I added the maximum water per the instructions 5.75 quarts and this helped a little but still sets too fast. I have some more rooms to do but will be using the extended set Levelquick. I'm surprised that HD doesn't carry this in stock as it's more suitable to the DIYer and that seems to be there primary market segment. You can get if from HD but you'll have to order it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tazrwnovation don't try to put hardwood on it
If you need more than a 1/4 inch to level you wont be able to nail hardwood into it. I needed to bag to raise my floor roughly 1 1/2 in dinning room. Now im putting my gardwood floors down and nails from my gun wont go through it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BathKing Worked Great!
This product did exactly what it was supposed to do and was a breeze to work with. Several earlier reviews had me a little anxious about using this. I thought I would end up with more of an issue than I started with. However, it could not have worked out better. Here are my recommendations for a smooth pour. 1) Use the entire mix. If it is a lot more than what is needed for the job, there may be smaller batches you can buy, but estimating reduced quantities may lead to less than satisfactory results. 2) Use the 'Homer' bucket. It is perfectly sized to handle the full quantity. 3) I measured the minimum amount of water into the bucket (they give a range) with the difference ready on the side if I needed it. 4) I masked off any areas where I did not want this to spread using cardboard and painter's tape. 5) I marked the height on the wall, so I knew when I had enough. 6) Once completed, I discarded remaining and cleaned up with water. Cleanup was SUPER easy. Great product and worth the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ivetiledbeforetoo them floors get flat
there is nothing worse for a tile installation than having a floor that isnt flat. unless you are especially skilled in the concrete arts, there wasnt much you could do, until now..... clean the floor, prime the floor, mix with the appropriate amount of water and pour it out. fast drying, do not use a fan to try and accelerate the dry time. it will handle business on its own. its not cheap but it can be worth it to give you a floor that looks like a high paid professional was under your employ for the last couple weeks. bonded well to existing concrete floor, didnt try over carpet..maybe next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rt product works great - just as advertised
This product worked fine and was exactly what I needed to create a level substrate for the porcelain tiles I laid in my entry hallway.
Before using it I read the customer reviews and watched a lot of YouTube videos. Regarding all the negative reviews and warnings - I would say that most of these reviews are written by people who either don't know what the product is intended for, don't know how to use it, or simply can't follow directions.
For example there is one negative review where the reviewer claims they followed the instructions exactly by using 5 liters of water for a 50 lb bag. However, the instructions don't say that. They say to mix 5.75 quarts of water to one 50 lb. bag. 5 liters = 5.28 quarts, which is significantly less than 5.75 quarts. No wonder it was too thick!
You don't need to be an expert or a contractor to use this product. Just digest all the instructions, read some reviews and online forums, and watch YouTube videos, so you will know what you are supposed to be doing.
