Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I expected Before I ordered these ceiling tiles, I read many reviews. Everyone said how nice and bright white they are. I disagree. They have streak marks in them on both sides and some of them have brown marks on one side and gouges in them. Also I have noticed a black spot inbedded in some of them. I also find they emit an odd odour. I will be returning these. December 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Genesis Tiles I was going to install regular tiles then read a review on mold in the bathroom. Used these Genesis tiles. They worked great. They are light, easy to cut. I recommend them specially for a bathroom where the humidity level is high. November 14, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product.... packaging problem I have been in manufacturing most of my working life. This is a "rookie" mistake. Almost all of the tile had marks from the previous tile's UPC code sticker on them. I had to use a product called Goo B Gone to clean them up. (Luckily it worked) A sheet of paper or something would probably have stopped this from happening. Don't you have quality control at the factory? The rest of the packaging was great (no damage of any kind). so I didn't have to return them. The quality was perfect. I just wanted a plain tile, light weight and inexpensive and they fit the bill. They cut easily with a box knife and dropped into place. I am not normally one to write complaints but you asked... Hope this helps. Sincerely January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tile looks so much nicer than the commercial grade stuff with the holes in it. It looks very clean, and it was very easy to install with no mess The tile looks so nice. It has a much brighter cohesive look than the commercial looking stuff with the holes. It was also very easy to install and no mess! We are very happy with our choice. September 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great on multiple levels I picked this tile because i don't like ceilings that broadcast "drop ceiling" which I believe most of the textured ones do. This tile almost looks like painted sheetrock when it is up. This was my first Drop Ceiling, and I screwed up. Fortunately, this tile is very forgiving. It was so thin that I could slip it in through tight spacing. Yet it is sturdy and does not droop at all - I used the 2'x4' size. It was easy to cut - like sheet rock, I scored it a couple of times and snapped it off clean. When cutting corners or holes with a jig saw on slow speed, it could not have been easier. The price can't be better. Not a single negative surprise while working with it, but plenty of times when I said "thank God I selected this tile". A stand-out product that exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product for High Humidity Used this in my basement bathroom after a leak in the upstairs bathroom buckled the drywalled ceiling. I was looking for a removable ceiling in case of future leaks or maintenance needs. A suspended ceiling seemed like the first choice, but I had not encountered tiles that would hold up to the humidity in a small bathroom with low ceilings. I knew they would all eventually sag and/or mold. I had considered laminating FRP to plywwood and cutting down to use as tiles. Then I came across these tiles on-line, and they seemed to be what I had been looking for. Hate buying things without handling them first, but gave these a try. My bathroom is small, so tile cost was not a big issue, although I could see it being an issue on full basements. Seems like they could be a couple dollars cheaper. Tiles were just as described. They cut VERY easy with a straight edge and utility knife. Score well and snap. I used with a Ceiling Max plastic grid system for added ceiling height and the tiles worked great. Note that this version is a plain smooth white finish, maybe a little too "sterile" or "commercial" like for some, but I would think the textured versions would be a good choice for better aesthetics in a living area. If you haven't already figured it out, tiles are thin compared to regular ceiling tiles, about like thickness of corrugated cardboard. I used a 2 x 2 grid layout and see no issues arising from sagging in the future. Overall, did a nice looking, durable, removable and humidity resistant ceiling. I would definitely recommend to others with this need. August 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ceiling Tile Where Moisture is a Concern I got these panels to use over a shower so I would not have to be concern about moisture issues. They look like they will do well in a wet environment. The panels are solid and quite flexible so do not depend on them to support any weight other than insulation. The finish looks similar to that of a smooth flat ceiling painted white. If your hands are dirty you can leave spots on the panel which you will then have to clean. Both sides of the panel are finish and usable. The color goes all the way through the panel. They are very easy to cut with a knife. If you sharply bend the panel it will snap like a candy bar. Any cutting needs to be done on a clean smooth surface. My biggest concern is that they can be dented or marred fairly easy. The handle of a 6" long,1/4" screwdriver dropped from a height of about 12" will put a dent in the panel. It really does not take much to mar the surface. You can not apply pressure on the surface with a object and expect it to spring back or resist as it is a soft but firm surface with no spring back. Once mar it will stay that way. August 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to work with but can be scratched Score it with a knife and crack it, simple. Only thing to be careful with is it scratches pretty easy. I assumed it would be like pvc pipe and very durable, but you have to be careful placing it in the ceiling as not to scrape it on a sharp rail edge, lighting can, hanger cable or something else sharp or you will wind up with a visible gouge.
