I normally don't do reviews, however there are some negative reviews so I wanted to share my experience with this tile. We had a shower installed. used the 12 by 12 tiles with the bull nose. You want to make sure that you get all the same lot number. The colors do very between the lots. We used sandstone grout worked perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richierich03 Very nice tile!
This is a very good porcelain tile which looks great, installs easily and will hold up well. I like using DalTile products and have installed 422 square foot of this in our home. We will install another 500 square foot in the next two months.
If you never used porcelain tile before make sure you know it is much harder to cut than ceramic tile. I use a manual tile cutter for straight cuts and a wet saw for difficult cuts. Purchase a wet saw blade made to cut porcelain tile.
The only issue you will find, as with all tile, some tiles might be slightly smaller or larger than the advertised size! Also some tiles might have flaws and use those for your cuts. This is true for just about any tile you will use. When installing tile the general rule is to open all the boxes up and mix the tiles.
This is porcelain tile and make sure you use the correct thinset. Thinset will generally have a pot life of about 2 hours. You can extend the life by keeping the mixed thinset in a covered five gallon bucket. Only take out what you need working in four - nine foot square work boxes depending on your speed and comfort level. Occasionally check for proper adhesion by placing down a tile and then lifting it up and check the back of the tile for adhesion. I look for adhesion of 95% but I think 90% is acceptable.
One other word of advise....scrape off any glue, drywall mud or paint from your floor before you tile.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrFrustrated Beware if pairing with other tile
Let me start by saying these tiles look great. I have not had the chance to install these tiles yet, because the size is actually 11.75" square. I bought 6" tile (actual 6" tiles) to create a unique pattern on my walls. When I dry laid these, I noticed the pattern was further off each time. If you plan do pair with another tile beware, you will find your dimensions are off 1" every 4 feet. Because the dimensions are not as stated, I now have to place my project on hold (living in a construction site) and try to find new tile that matches the rest of my purchases.
If you use this tile alone, you may not experience the same issues I did. Update on customer service to follow...

This is the most inexpensive porcelain tile you can get and is good quality. I put this tile in all my rental units. You have to be careful since this is a porcelain tile you have to use a modified thin-set on the back and its good to check for adhesion every so often because if you wait too long the thin-set will loose some of its adhesion properties and it wont adhere to the back. It looks great, has a neutral color, and my tenants love it/

I have used this tile to floor 80% of my house as of this time. I purchased this tile because I was looking for this specific color, and I was also looking for an affordable tile because I knew that I would be needing lots of it at the time and in the future during house renovations. I purchased the tile first to do my guest bathroom. Since I have done my living room and kitchen with this tile. This month I will be using it in my laundry room. The only complaint that I received from my tile guy is that the tiles are delicate when cutting at times. I will continue buying and using it in any room intended to be tiled until my renovation project is complete!!!

I spent weeks looking for just the right tile. This tile is a gem. It looks beautiful installed. The price makes it even better. Definitely check lot numbers. We didn't have problems with tile. We had it with bullnose. Some a little longer than others.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chiffy242 Poor Quality
Purchased 11 cases to replace flooring in my sunroom. As I laid more and more tiles, I couldn’t figure out why the tile corners weren’t lining up. Finally put several tiles on a metal square and noticed that the tiles were not square. Some tiles were shy of being square by as much as 1/8”. Since I bought and was doing my own install, Home Depot and Daltile were not willing to come out or offer suggestions. See posted pictures

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gman Wonderful color and quality for the price
I had the contractor put in the tiles all the way to the ceiling and used it on the stall floor as well with some patterns. The results came out really good. Couple of things to keep in mind. I had purchased a set of tiles from one HD and then had to buy more from another store, didn't realize the shade model# was different which changed the shade drastically. Luckily my wife spotted it and I managed to get the same shade again so it didn't turn out to be a disaster shade difference, second try to use the small square tiles for the floor, I used a combination of 12X12 and small for borders but I would do it differently now if I had to.
