Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kirk Envirotile Cobblestone Earth Pavers Did The Job
I did a considerable amount of research and review reading prior to ordering the Envirotile Pavers. I even wrote directly to the manufacture for additional advice.
Positives: The pavers worked as described and look great. Other reviews stated they were difficult to cut, but I found them extremely easy to cut, handle and install. I used a jig saw with a sharp new blade, and it was like cutting through butter. They lined up perfectly, and were not odd sizes as I had feared by older reviews. Perhaps they have changed manufacturing methods, but it was not an issue.
Negatives: I used the pavers to cover ugly cracked concrete steps entering my house. The pavers are meant to be used with a clip to attach each paver and line them up perfectly. That could not be done on steps. I used a concrete adhesive recommended by Envirotile, and it worked perfectly, however, where the clips were supposed to go, the underside of the paver is grooved, and you can see the groove at the front of each step. I filled the groove with the mastic and painted it brown to make it disappear. This would not be an issue on a flat floor surface.
Overview: I love the completed look of the tiles, and like them so far. After a hard winter in Salt Lake City, I will know for sure if I love them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TommyG Perfect flooring solution for our balcony
We have a beautiful 80 year old New Orleans victorian home with a 300sf balcony that's covered in galvanized steel. Outdoor rugs disintegrated within a year and the painted steel was an awful look. We wanted a lightweight flooring solution that would fit under the rail all the way to the outer edge of the deck. (Check out the Photo.)
Though the manufacturer suggests using the clips only on the perimeter, I recommend using them for the entire surface. It just looks better when they're all tightly fitted and they don't move when you walk on them. The tiles are not all the same, but that give it more of an organic feel. The clips help to keep tiles in place by pulling and tugging on the entire surface. It does take quite a bit of effort to install on large areas, but everyone that sees it agrees that it was a great choice. Love that it absorbs sound and is slip resistant. At one inch thick it's quite comfy to walk on.
We bought these right off the shelf. It would be great if the store maintained the display better. We bought every clip from every store in the New Orleans area and still didn't have enough. We had to order extra clips which delayed installation for a week. Overall extremely satisfied.

I bought enough tiles to do an 11 x 11' room. It's a great concept, given that we're drowning in junk tires. However, I have an issue with their quality control. The tiles should be the exact same size, since they come from a mold. They differ slightly, so that by the end of a row I'm off by as much as 1/2". And the clips that are so easy to install on their video..... Forgetaboutit! They are awful. Mostly don't work, fall out of the grooves as you're putting the next one in, and even when you get two in the right place, they don't match up with the next tile. You can pound away with your rubber mallet to no avail. I still like the product, but don't love it, and will live with some of them that don't line up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Butters The answer to my patio/roof dreams after a a long search!
Just a little bit challenging to cut if you need to. But overall the fit and look is great. I choose to caulk around the edges and seams just for added protection. LOVE THEM!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1Happybuyer Excellent purchase
We bought this product three years ago for a small concrete front porch that has had everything from paint to outdoor carpeting since the home was built in 1978. This is by far the best solution we have found. After three years the dark brown color has not faded or worn. Once a year we clean it with Simple Green and a brush and water hose. Spraying with water hose or sweeping with leaf blower keeps clean otherwise. We did not have any trouble with installation. The tiles are not all perfectly square but we were able to deal with that. This product is worth the money to us and I recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SAMM Watch Home Depot DIY video on how to install these
If you watch the video on how to install these, you DO NOT use clips on all the tiles. Just the tiles on the perimeter. No wonder people are having such a hard time installing them.

We read other reviews but apparently thought we had the magic touch. What a nightmare! A few tiles will snap together easily but by no means are ANY of them 18"square, infact they run various sizes and thus the problem begins. And let me be the first to tell you that we have used a drummel tool, shims, a utility knife, mallet, etc. You definitely need a VERY level, hard pack surface if you are not putting them on a deck. In hindsight I wish I would have read and taken to heart the other reviews. This product needs revamped severely.

This product helped me completely transform my front porch and backyard deck. Both deck and porch look better than I ever envisioned.
