Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scottyq Not bad at all
The key is doing a lot of prep. Heights, clearances, etc... Worked out fine. Sturdy enough and I'm happy with the results.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LikesNiceThings I expected better for the price, and here's why...
The product is installed and working in my home. If you are looking for a premium solution, this isn't it. I am particularly critical because this choice is by-far the the most expensive offered. 1.This product isn't designed for a door of exactly 30" width (very common), So what?; The fastener are located exactly upon the edge you will be trimming. You won't be able to use all four adjusting fasteners without using additional materials.
2. Oak is only used where visible. So what?; The soft wood used in the base could easily split when installing t-nuts, trimming to length, or fastening to the floor, Pressing the finsh strip in place creates additional tension on the base, so a minor split could become worse, and strip won't seat as intended.
3. Adjustable oak strip is not reversible. holes are off-center. So what?; If the holes were in the 'center', you could trim trim this piece from either end without accidentally ruining the kit and having to purchase another to finish the install. An obvious opportunity to make a better product.
4. The instructions are incomplete; Which side do you insert the T-nuts on? Do you need to use all four adjusting fasteners? No mention of how to adjust the height or how should work. A diagram could solve this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by betty1213 Frost King threshold is very poor quality
the papers say this is oak but the inner board is definitely softwood, and one of the nuts for adjustment screws came loose and the screw won't come out of it, so that screw is afloat; I'm very disappointed in the quality of this item

The wood trim split when I was installing it. The wood was also split on the end before I cut it. Cheap

This product does not adjust period! Don't waste your money. You'll be returning it in no time. The design does not allow it to be adjusted.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harvey not worth it
I returned it. The screws were missing even though it appeared fully wrapped there was a small tear in the shrink wrap that they must have fallen out from. None of the others on the shelf were fully wrapped or had all their parts. The installation instructions attached to the item were not for this product nor were they for any of the other items except the basic aluminum threshold. The vinyl piece did not move with the adjustable wooden piece so you are forced to buy either a sweep or some other part to make it weather tight which defeats the purpose of buying this.

I worked on this for several hours and have not yet installed, on 2 of the hole recesses I had to deepen them because the heads of the screws were to high above the the wood. I cannot figure how the adjustment works so I will install and lower the door bottom to fit. In all my years as a contractor, I have never used a worse product. The 1st Frost king I bought advertised 1 1/8" and the lowest it went was 1 1/2" took it back got 2nd one, all day job and still did not work well. Instructions terrible.

Replaced an existing deteriorating threshold and this fit the bill perfectly. The product I particualary received didn't have the nicest wood finished attached to it, but it was adequate nonetheless. Given the foot traffic and location of it, not that big of a deal, but it would be nice to see higher-end visibile materials be used. Good overall.
