Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brad22hvac Sound dampening!!
I used this for my trafficmaster flooring (laminate). The install of this product is aggrivating but worth it in the end. You have to battle the roll on the floor until you lay your flooring. But the sound quality makes my floor soft and very quiet. I do not even hear a squeek with my floors!! The battle is worth the effort !! Home depot said this is the best of the best and I believe it!!

There was a display at the Depot where you could compare the sound made by tapping a wrench against laminate with various underlayments. This one did seem to have the most muffled sound.
I was less impressed with the material and installation. The product is made with a 2" wide thin plastic flap and double stick tape system, which is mounted on the bottom surface, to prevent moisture penetration. While the quality of that system is barely acceptable, the problem comes with the 2" wide gap that is created on the top surface which tends to pucker up and create an open mouth with lips. I snagged those lips countless times with my knees pads and toes during installation of the flooring. I'd suggest using packing tape to cover those seams.
For concrete sub floors they recommend running the padding up the walls 2" to maintain a moisture seal. Given the thickness of the material that seems near impossible to do, while maintaining a tight 1/4 to 3/8" gap along the wall using spacers. I'd suggest using more packing tape to install some thin painters plastic around the perimeter of the underlayment and up the wall a few inches. Then trim it below the top of your baseboard.

The contractor recommended we buy padding of high quality. This was rated very highly for sound absorbtion.

This made a true difference in the feel under your feet and the noise was much less. I put this in my walk-in closet and I really like it. I had previously put down the same flooring in another closet with the less expensive liner and you can definatley feel the difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrAndMrsL We love our stone-look laminate flooring!
We had the flooring installed, so cannot comment on ease of installation. It is comfortable and exactly what we were looking for.

I used this under a floating floor (click bamboo). Easy to install and we don't hear a peep when walking on the new floor. Good to know that I bought the best possible product to protect under the new floor. I might not see it, but I know its there!
