Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by diversity210 Will be the best for some, the worst for others.
I had a hard time rating this product, because it has its advantages and disadvantages. Not unlike every item on the market today with its pro's and con's. The problem is those pros and cons can make this the best product in the world to some and the worst product in the world to others. Depending on the situation. I decided to give it 3 stars because though this grout works great for certain tiling jobs. There are more versatile and easier to use products out there.
First off this grout comes premixed and that is definitely a good thing. Saves a lot of time and energy from mixing the stuff up outside. Then lugging it inside where you are laying the floor. Also you will notice it comes in a variety of different colors. Really nice and quite useful colors is I might add and on top of that they make a calking to match every color of grout. This is a sanded grout that doesn't just claim to resist shrinking. Another thing I noticed is that for sanded grout it works great in smaller grout lines such as 1/8 grout lines. Most sanded grouts do not compact very well into thinner grout lines, which leads to problems later, but I have used this in 1/8 grout lines with great success. Also I found that this grout glides under the float very nicely.
The cons of this product is that it will leave a haze on porcelain tiles and the haze that it leaves is very hard to remove. I found this out when I used this stuff for the first time and allowed it to dry on the tile. I had to use a fiberglass abrasion tool attached to a drill to remove the haze from the tile with out ruining the tile. This problem can be remedied though. Keep a bucket of clean water and a grout sponge while. Grout a few lines then go back with you grout sponge and clean the lines up and any residue on the tile. Do not let this stuff dry on your tile. Especially porcelain. Also though this grout work for smaller 1/8 grout lines. Its very hard to use on vertical surfaces. You will have more grout on the floor than on the wall. It just does not stick to the float or wall very well. That is the case with most sanded grouts though, which is why they recommend unsanded grout for walls, but if the grout lines on your walls are larger than 1/8 you will have no other option but to use a sanded grout. If that is the case this stuff can be used. You just have to take your time. What I did is I would use a small putty knife to scoop the grout up and basically spackle it on to the float. This why I insured it stuck to the float and when applying to the grout lines on the wall you will just have to use more force than usual.
Unlike premixed mortar which costs 3 times as much as bags of mortar you mix yourself. This premixed grout wont cost you very much more than the dry grout. Id recommend this product if you are grouting a ceramic tile floor with 1/8 grout lines or larger. I would not recommend it for grouting walls or any vertical surface. I also wouldn't recommend it for those who dont have a little extra time to clean up the grout lines and all the grout off the tiles as they go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe457 Excellent product,good pot life, easy to install.
Couldn't be a better product. My only kick is the price, which to me is on the high side. BUT... I recall a builder's quote from many years ago: "The quality of an installation will be present long after the price is forgotten." And this product yields a top quality installation.

This was my first time applying grout, and it went very well. Pre-mixed is the way to go.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KellBelle Useless! You might as well be tiling with marshmallow cream!
About the only positive thing I have to say about this product is that it comes pre mixed. If you think you will save time and mess by using this obnoxious goo, think again. The consistency of this stuff is similar that of marshmallow cream and equally as difficult to use if you can imagine it. My trawl float did not glide over this like it should have and left a thick, gloppy mess of grout in its wake that had to later be chiseled off my tile with a spackle knife. A job that should have taken a couple of hours turned into an all day, epically laborious event.
For someone attempting her first tiling job, I'm happy to say the project is not a total disaster. It's pretty rough in areas (photo attached for reference) and some touch up work will be needed but at least I know enough now to use the right product for my kitchen job. Save yourself some time and headache and go with the grout you mix yourself.
On another note, if you are having trouble getting grout haze off your tile and don't want to use a potentially damaging acid, try some grade 0000 (very fine) steel wool. It will get rid of the grout haze and polish your tile without scratching.
