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 3.0 out of 5.0 by DonB Like the idea of recycled tire tiles; disappointed in shipping cost and tile dimensions
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.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pete very disappointed
I was disappointed that I had to trim every single tile. All of the slag left from molding was left. They were also not all made out of the same molding leading to inconsistencies in the surface area. This was a problem when measuring the surface needing to be covered and the tiles not matching those measurements. I had to clean all of the slag off to make it work.

I installed these pads under by trash cans. They are heavy duty, I just levered the ground a little and layed in place. they look nice and prevent having a mud puddle when it rains. I did not try to connect the two pieces together in anyway, the connectors do not come with the set of two pads and they seemed prohibitively expense to me.

I've bought these three times in the past year as I've taken out the concrete from my patio. They may not be as beautiful as stone, but they hold up great and look just fine. The main reason I love them, though, is because the ground doesn't have to be perfectly flat before you set them down.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gabe It is a great product for water exposed areas
I got these tiles for my basement. They provide a great area for play and are resistant to water damage which could be the case no matter what you do in trying to prevent this. Installation was a task for some overqualified people. Size difference up to a 1/4 " make it more of a puzzle game than just installation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BklyPH Nice looking but get ready for some headaches.
I just purchased almost 600 of these tiles to use on the roof of my building in Brooklyn. They look very nice and the quality of the tiles are good as well, but it is almost impossible to make a straight line with them. Every one of the tiles are completely different sizes and it makes for real headache trying to make them match up and for using the connector clips. In the end, after playing Tetris all day with many qualified people helping, you will be left with gaps between the tiles and not every tile and line matching up. You simply will not be able to use some of the clips because the attachment points on the under side of the tiles will not match up even if the seems do. Also, the tiles will expand and contract with the sun causing the tiles to pop out of the clips.
Unless you are able to permanently able to attach them to the surface or purposely leaves gaps between the tiles, be prepared for not having things perfect. It will simply be impossible. Multy Home, the manufacturer, really needs to improve quality control. The overall look is very nice from afar, but when you are standing on them, that is when you see the issues.
