Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PortlandDIYer Check the product before you walk out
Some of these countertops do not move very often. Make sure you check that its straight and the surface is smooth. Mine was not straight and the surface had residue on it that I had to clean multiple times and it still didn't come off. Could be now that things have picked up that the products will move faster.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Knv1022 Great countertop!
These countertops are beautiful and so durable! We were afraid they were going to be hard to cut from talking to others but my husband purchased a $30 black & decker jig saw from Home Depot. It cut like a dream.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kim Awesome look and super inexpensive!!!!!
what more could you want from an inexpensive laminate? it looks great and is easy to install. the only problem is that we waited so long to do it! we did have to inspect the boards in stock at the local store, some were warped, but once you get the good ones, the hardest part was transporting them home in the pick-up truck!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DYIDieHards High end finished look!
We have a U shaped kitchen which makes for a challenge when choosing countertops. But we're die-hard DYI people so we chose the Jeweled Coral laminate, and the unfinished stock oak cabinets from Home Depot and brought them home for our complete kitchen remodel in our 112 year old house.(The copper sink and backsplash are from there, too!) The edging and texture of the countertop really make it look like granite at first glance. I have to agree with a couple of the other reviews though--take your time and use a file, not an electric sander, or you'll regret it. Also, check your countertop VERY closely at the store for bowing. We didn't realize our 10 foot piece was bowed until after we'd cut two 45 degree angles on it, and routered out the underside for the mounting and joining anchors and set it in place. We managed to make it work but it was really disheartening. But the end result was AMAZING, and I would highly recommend it, just pick carefully at the store.

The countertop is warped. It's made of lousy particle board and the ends are unfinished. You must buy an additional kit to cover the ends with laminate. Invest your money in a quality countertop; not this one!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by renovator Nice countertop but badly cut end pieces
Bought the countertop with the endcap and endsplash, the countertop is nice but the pre-cut endsplash and endcaps pieces are very poorly cut and don't fit properly or tight. It is as if they were cut for a different edge as the curvature are different and leave 2 mm gaps.

Second purchase of this countertop, and very happy with its performance. Originally purchased a couple of years ago, and please that it was still offered and looked identical.
Must transport carefully, as the backsplash connection to base is not very sturdy prior to installation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Budgetremodeler Worth it for a quick finish
My wife and I were finishing our kitchen on a budget. We saw this countertop at our local home depot. It looks great and with the finished edges it has a very finished appearance. My only issue was that with the long lengths of counter top, they tend to bow a bit. Not to much of an issue but you need to really need to push and pull to get the corners to line up. And I think it would be a good idea for Hampton Bay to make a molded finish edge for the ends I stead of a flat end cover.
