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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by LUCY Great idea for going "green"
We bought 3 different styles of the Envirotile to create a pattern for the floor in one of those tent-style gazebos. We don't plan on leaving the gazebo up through the winter, so these tile for the floor allow us to just pick them up and put them away, too. They look really nice & feel comfortable underfoot as long as you have shoes on because they can get very warm on hot day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Great Product - a bit overpriced due to shipping costs
This us a great product, especially if you purchase the matching side trim and connector blocks. I found these matching items in the Home Depot store, although I had to purchase the pavers on-line, which added shipping costs.
After a few big rains, the pavers are still perfectly in place and look great.

The size of the tiles are different sizes.Makes it impossible to keep square.More frustrated putting this down than anything I've ever done.Would NEVER EVER use this again.Website said I needed 6 boxes of clips..only used 2.
Website said it can be used on a layer of sand.Don't do it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Patsy Love this product but am not happy with consistency of size and color.
I ordered 21 of these pavers to cover the cement floor on my front porch. Love them, but, unfortunately, they were not all exactly the same size or color. Hired someone to install them, but they had to be cut, etc. Looks nice.

Used ginsue knife to easily do the triming required to fit my space. They are not totally uniform in size which makes keeping things square and the seams straight a bit of a pain, but for the money they are worthy of consideration.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lynnm nice product, no smell
unfortunately the tiles were not cut to exact specifications which led to issues installing. It was like installing a freakin puzzle. some were exactly 18x18 others were181/4x 18. get your dimensions right and this would be an all star product!
