Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rudy the product had minor flaws
Installation had its minor drawbacks. Cutting the product proved to be more difficult than I had expected but overall the installation looks good. I'm not sure if I would use this product for a large job in my home. It is only for decorative purposes to cover areas that need hiding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marko4th Simple fast and Easy.
Despite the cost of this product, it equals the looks and elegance of glass tile when creating backsplashes. Because of the wavy feature, cutting with a sharp utility knife was not an option. I chose a large pair of snips used in installing vinyl siding to simply cut to size. When it came to making the holes for outlets, I used a Multi Tool reciprocating saw with a fine-tooth blade. I also chose to use clear silicone to affix the panels because I have used the adhesive suggested and found silicone allows more forgiveness when moving the panels in position with a cleaner clean-up residue within the seams. Starting in larger, common spaces over stoves and sinks are a plus, but can pose a challenge because these panels need to overlap. By using silicone, this too allows more freedom and slower drying time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Looks great! Plan your installation thoroughly
I used multiple pieces of this to face my home bar. Product looks great when properly installed. Planning your seam locations and orientation are key. I found that the only way I could cut this due to the "wavy" shape was with a saw & finished the exges with a piece of sandpaper and a block to produce a quality edge finish. Tried to use the specified tape for installation and it all fell off a couple days later despite proper surface preparation. Reapplied with the adhesive caulking and it works perfect. Happy with the finished results. A bit costly but I factored that into the build up front so I was aware what I was going to spend ... less the tape failure. The tape DID stick VERY WELL to the plastic but not to other surfaces other than plastic. Would have preferred H.D. stock larger pieces to avoid seams.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnK Easiest backsplash ever
The material was easy to cut for a close fit in the corners. The overlap area created an almost invisible seam. The border pieces that covered the edges were also very easy to cut and arrange to created perfect corners. I would definitely use this product in future finishing work that I may have an opportunity to do in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Definitely worth the high-end look it gives
Product is great except for one thing. When measuring your wall area, full sheets look better over appliances like the stove or the sink rather than having a seam off center. You'll have to buy more panels but the end result is worth it. You also need corner moldings for neater appearance. If you can get samples before purchasing, do it. They look very different in pictures. Easy enough to work with with sharp scissors and double face tape. Lastly, some panels can be used in either direction, some not. So check before you start.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maepop Somewhat flimsy for the price but applied easily and looks great
Installed easily and looks great up but overall the price vs the quality is mismatched. It's a plastic flimsy material that as long as put of properly looks great but in comparison with real vs. faux the price just doesn't match.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mlbach6 Pay Attention!
This product is absolutely beautiful... I was very close to being fooled into thinking this was cheap plastic, and nearly chose not to purchase it, until I discovered that there is a clear plastic sheet over the product... even one of the employees didn't know it was there. It appears to scratch easily and be a cheap flimsy plastic product until that clear plastic is peeled back. No more scratches, and the actual metal showed through! Don't be fooled! It is actually a great product!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules Love the look
I purchased the "tiles" at my local HD store. Instead of using them as a backsplash, I am installing them in my stairway landing wall as an accent wall. Due to the cost and the size of the wall I am buying a few at a time and installing as I go. Can't wait to see the full wall finished. Easy to cut and install. The adhesive tape sticks for a few days but will start to lift. I am using loctite all purpose adhesive to install and no problems with the tiles lifting.
