We were interested in the Envirotile for an outdoor patio next to our basement door because it made use of recycled material. Although I didn't think the local Home Depot would have 80 tiles in stock I expected to be able to order and pick up the tiles at the local store. However I had to order them online and pay shipping charges to deliver them to our house which amounted to an extra $1.50 per tile.
The other problem came when we installed the tile in that I had planned the number of tiles based on a fairly exact measurement of 18 x 18 inches and they were not a full 18" but only about 17 3/4". Many were also not square. Some were pretty square and others were off by 1/8" to 1/4". The combination meant I needed more tiles than I had initially calculated for the area to be covered.
One minor complaint is that they also didn't come with any installation instructions.
I would recommend the product if the manufacturing process were improved to provide more accurate dimensions and not have to pay extra for shipping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scrapper Easier than I expected!
I typically read reviews of products before I buy, and this time was no different. After reading the reviews and purchasing the tiles I was expecting this to be a several hour project. I only have a small patio area that I was going to tile, 12 x 13 or so, but in less than 2 hours I finished the installation.
I only needed to make a dozen cuts or so and it was very easy to score them like they said in the video then apply slight pressure to flex the tile along that score and continue cutting with light pressure on the blade. Like I said, it's easier than I expected.
I chose to buy a few more clips than they suggested and I used an additional two clips in a standard arrangement on all of the non-border tiles. It had the affect of keeping things more square overall. There are slight imperfections in the squareness of the tiles, and their measurements are slightly irregular as others have said, but all in all, with the additional clips I used the imperfections are spread out and very minor and really not noticed except upon close inspections. I would suggest that if your budget can afford it, buy some extra clips and stabilize the tiles.
Nice product. Easy to install. Looks great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mine Great surface for garage work area
I use these on the floor of my garage in the areas of most foot traffic and in front of workbench. They provide some insulation against the cold concrete floor as well as cushion underfoot.

Surprise #1: Received black tiles instead of the gray described and pictured on the website.
Surprise #2: There is no slot underneath the tiles to insert the tile clips (clips sold separately).
I kept the tiles and they look okay and work well as a path through small rocks in the garden, but I am subtracting a star for each surprise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Annoyed Quality control is not their strong suit
The slots on the bottoms for the clips are not even close. Would have to trim every single tile on all sides to make it work. Not happening!

The pavers seemed to be of decent quality. I had read the online reviews and wondered about the clips that attach the tiles together. Some had great success others not so much. I am in the later category as the pavers I received did not have the slot required for the clip. I am unsure if the outer edge will stay put here in windy Wyo. i did notice a few wavy edges and a few tiles were thicker than the others. All in all it was an improvement on covering the concrete slab

We had previously bought the smaller tiles to cover a brick patio and were now looking for something to cover an old set of concrete steps. My husband came up with this idea of framing the tiles in with composite lumber. These tiles worked great as they were bigger and we liked the gray color. They cut well to fit and the extra pieces I used as stair treads on the wooden deck steps. The color is a nice dark gray and are solid without any design. They clean easily as I spray on Simple Green and then hose off. It did take a few weeks to be delivered and Home Depot had no sample to look at in the store. We took a chance and really are pleased with the results.
