Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crystal LOVE these tiles!
I bought these to make a deck out of my fire escape. They were super easy to put together, it only took me a few minutes. Make sure you buy enough of the clips, I ended up making a second trip. Each tile has two grooves on each side (8 total) for the clips. The design looks really neat when you get it all together. The stamped pattern allows water to drain off when it rains so they are not slippery. Because of the odd size of my fire escape, I need to cut some in half to finish the edge, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I hope the edges don't crumble! (Will update this when I finish.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ARLD Easy to install and looks great!
We installed these on our back patio which is 15'x18' and has a border for planting. I got enough clips for every tile, but ended up only using them around the edges. There is a bit of irregularity in the tiles--they're not all perfectly square and some are a bit wider than others. This made it pretty difficult to get clips to fit through the whole thing, but just securing the edge pieces is perfectly sufficient.
The color ("earth") is fantastic--dark, warm brown--and the pattern is beautiful once it's all laid out! We edged the envirotiles with some light edging stones and put red mulch around the adjacent plants; it looks SO good, and I think it will be easy to maintain.
It took 3 adults an afternoon to lay all of the tiles (including spreading sand to level out the area), and another afternoon or two to finish up with edging and finishing touches. The tiles are easy to cut with a sharp box cutter.
Minus 1 star for quality, because of the slight irregularity in shape and in color. It doesn't impact the end result or how good it looks, and I'm sure most pavers are somewhat irregular, but it does add to the frustration of installing these. Otherwise, they're great quality (solid, heavy duty, feels like they'll withstand weather and foot traffic well)!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bassoonjim Good, unbreakable alternative to step stones
These pavers are nice for a walkway that I put going down a modest grade in my yard from the house to a car-barn about 60 feet away. I shaved the underlying dirt to flat, not quiet level mount areas and placed the pavers in the prepared spaces to act as mini steps going down the grade. These "steps" have small enough vertical increments that running the mower over them is no problem. My hope is that in winter, if I keep them clear, walking to the car will not be treacherous and not as muddy in the spring as it had been. The down side is that the grass is growing onto them and that requires a lot of hand trimming

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Precise Definitely not a quality product!
The 1st order had 1/3 that were not square, and 1/3 that were either over sized or undersized. Could nod not (that is not) use them since the seams would not line up. The replacement order was sorted by HD and was better but still had 1/5 that were not square and 1/5 that were over sized only. I corrected the oversize problem by cutting them on my table saw. I overcame the not square by using good ones from the 1st order.
This was a real hassle but i wanted the "rugged look" that the tiles had. The manufacturer needs to make the tiles oversized and then die cut individually to achieve the repeatable size control that is needed for easy installation. As they are now, the tiles are NOT easy to install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PMHH After a year.....
I've had these on my patio for over a year now. They were easy for me to install, however, lining up the clips with the adjoining tile got to be a hassel at times. For the most part they were in size and certainly cost a lot less than having a professional install something!
The product has remained stable, not much movement but they are on top of cement. I live in CA so the sun beats down on the tiles. They have become more of a brown color than terra cotta which works out for me. One word of caution: if you have plants in barrels or pots on top of the tiles and water drips on the tiles daily, they do discolor. The tiles under the pots got a strange white edge to them probably from water. I bought some tire cleaner and used that to restore the color. It worked very well but I will have to either move the plants or find a way to contain the water.
Overall this product did what I wanted, at the price I wanted, with a relatively easy installation. Used a jig saw to cut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pancho Great product
I used these to make a small patio to set a fire pit on. You can set up a circular design that looks great. They handle foot traffic well and have held up well in the desert heat of southwest Arizona.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kelly did not work well
I liked the look/design of this product. It did not stay put after a hard rain however, I will be replacing it with stone pavers this week.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robdiyer Looks good
The tiles are made well and are very durable. The installation was a bit tricky. I placed them over a 12 x 20 painted concrete. I tried the clips but they proved to be a hassle. They would not always line up and fit properly. I went to contractor adhesive. No problem laying but I have some advice. Use a laser to keep the lines straight. The tiles are rubber so the are not perfectly square and need trimming at times. Use a good quality utility knife to make your cuts. The tiles are pretty easy to cut but need a good sharp blade. They look good when installed but need same colored caulk to fill in the seams that are obviously too far apart. Overall, pretty happy. Also, they retain heat from sunlight and get very hot when walking on them with bare feet. They are tires after all.
