Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JD Bought this product thinking it would be 'easy' to install. The site was already leveled, prepared and ready to go, all I needed was the pavers to be laid in place to finish it. These tiles seemed like a great option. Softer than stone, brick or concrete, yet with a similar look.
I put the first tile down. Looked great, felt great under foot. I lined up the second tile and 'clipped' it into position. Had a little trouble with the second clip, but managed to get it in place. I think put in a 4 x 4 square - 6 feet on each side. And in just that small amount of the patio in place, it was quickly apparent that the tiles were just all over the place in terms of their sizes. Not one of them was the same as the others. Looking at them more closely, some of them had 'rounded' sides. I packed them all back into the car and back they went to Home Depot just a few hours after I bought them.
These are a great concept, but they were poorly executed. I am actually a bit upset that I wasn't able to get the patio with these tiles. I will be putting down concrete tiles in a similar pattern. Much heavier, slightly more expensive, but square.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nestor Great for walkways
These are sturdy, good looking, and echo the earth. We installed them on an 8'+ widened front walk and play area to prevent both child and senior fall injuries, and they blend in with the bark ground cover next to I. It's been three years and there is no degradation. This style goes with a craftsman bungalow very well. Great color, too. Easy to install anywhere. Screw down or just lay flat. Trim to suit. Recycled rubber is the tread of the future--

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kdheffdog Would be a great product... BUT....
Bought these for our back patio. Quality construction and solid and easy to lay down. Would be a great product... but it appears these things are measured and cut by someone who is not 'measuring twice and cutting once'. This person also needs to be handed a straight edge to do the cutting. These tiles are all different sizes. Some are a quarter inch longer than others. Most have edges that or not even close to straight. The result is you can't possibly make them fit tightly together and the final project looks like a mess! Until they can get a machine to actually cut them 18 X 18 with straight edges, most people are going to be returning this product.

I bought 110 of these to lay directly on a screening base similar to traditional pavers. I could not find any saw blade for my jigsaw that could cut these. There are no 2 tile alike from size colour etc..
A man made product that does not conform to any standard is very disappointing.
If you are looking for straight lines - forget about it, eve with the clips do not line up and you have to accept gaps in the tile.
I do like the feel under foot and the rubber for around the pool.

Disappointed. There is very poos quality control on the tile. They are not uniformly square and because of this they don't line up well. Using the clips are difficult since the tile are uneven. When you install the tile as they indicate in the video it is seriously not that easy. It is a great idea poorly executed. I am 66 and I almost want to hire someone to install them. Also they really do not cut that easy with a Sabre Saw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by velcro ugly uneven sidewalk in back yard
Very bad sidewalk cracking, had to patch year after year. So I bought 34 tiles and this is the result. Some corners up slightly but I'm sure they will settle in time. Used clips on EVERY square due to unevenness in concrete. 100% improvement for us. Just wish CLIPS were a little thicker, they just rest in the tile grooves no mallet tapping required. Hoping to glue down just two corners on two tiles!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY2inPB Easy to work with...
After considering cement pavers, calculating weight, amount of sand needed & installation we decided to go with this lightweight alternative and were very pleased with the product. It required less sand than cement pavers and were lighter. The best thing about them is that they were easily cut with a standard utility razor knife.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RBH Ready to tear it all up and return it!!!!!
We bought 160 of these to do our expansive concrete front porch. The porch is level.
We're experiencing the same poorly machined, uneven size differences in the tiles that others have mentioned. I wish we'd read the reviews before buying the product and spending so much time on it.
The tiles are so poorly machined that the size differences make a huge difference in trying to get them to line up/hook together. In addition, several of them are "warped"; they're not even machined with a straight edge on all 4 sides.
We've experienced the same "pop up" problem that others have mentioned in other reviews.
The clips? A whole other frustration of the process. The little spaces that the clips fit into are inconsistent. Some clips fit, some don't.....and the mallet only causes a bounce and they don't "seat" into the cracks. Even with a bit larger clips sent to us by the company to try, this didn't help. They're so big that they don't cinch the tiles together and the gap becomes a great dirt collecter size.
We keep trying to figure out a way to make them work, since the overall look and feel is nice. But, man...a little more care and consistency in machining these tiles and their clips would've made a BIG difference in installation. We are nearly ready to pack up the whole lot and trot it back to HD. :(
Oh? And cutting? Yeah...a utility knife works and there are so many for us to cut that it seems like we'll be here for another 6 months making cuts. We tried other saws (circular, with a few different type blades, a jig saw, a multi-tool, linoleum cutter). No luck. Utility knife gives the best cut. We do have a Japanese saw that we have yet to try. It looks promising.
We've spent hours and hours and hours on trying to get this product to look nice on the porch.
And...forget installation being done by Home Depot. They don't provide installation services for this product. No wonder.
