Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BtDoctur ease of installation,great looking finish, no chipping when cut.
Great looking product that was easy to install. The width of the sheet was the most appealing for my installation.
Material is easy to cut to size, no chipping when cut, very good inpact resistance but will chip if not handled properly.
One item of concern was the slight corner damage from a unopened box that showed no outside damage. Replacement product was quick and easy to have shipped.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron do not use in kitchen
We installed this in our kitchen and laundry room and the washer floor drain filled up due to a partial blockage and it went under the floor, buckling the flooring and raising all edges. Waste of money. OK to use in dry areas, but the joints are poorly designed making it nearly impossible to not have any gaps or chips.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LovetoRenovate2 This product met all of my expectations
I wanted a laminate floor that had the look of tile but is a laminate. The finished product is beautiful. I constantly get compliments on how beautiful it looks. It resists water and is relatively easy to install. I would recommend it to everyone. The only con I had is the way it is packaged. The vendor should do a better job of packaging the product so that the ends are not damaged.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SweetPea CANYON SLATE CLAY 8 MM THICK X 15-5/8 IN. WIDE X 50-3/4 IN. LENGTH LAMINATE FLOORING
I love this product, seems durable. Expensive but with the Manufacturer Warranty of 25 Year Residential Warranty I'm hoping in the long run it will save money. I do not reccomend someone whom is a first time do it yourselfer put this down. I was hoping to do this by myself in the future, my father helped me, whom use to own and make his own custom cabinets. Needless to say, I don't think I will attempt this w/o him in the future. They are no way I could've ever got the precision cuts immaculate as he did. Also, it is very labor intense work. Not to mention the existing sub floor wasn't the flatest surface in some spots. It took everybit of both of us to get this flooring down. We installed 15 cases of this flooring and almost ran out. We didn't allow for waste due to matching up. It has 5 designs, the 5th design we may have had a total of 10 boards and an abundance in a few of the others. You really need to pay close attention when starting and laying out your first run. Once you get your first several runs together, it's okay. But it still takes the longest to pick-out which boards to use on your next runs because we didn't want the same boards running together. I would really suggest in the beginning having an area near but out of the way of opening your cartons up and separating the different ones , facing in the same direction. This helped us a lot. This is definitely not for the first time do it yourselfer though, I can say I'm really glad my father helped me on this job. Without him it would've been a disaster. But I do love the look and the duribility in the flooring itself. We had several family members over during the holidays lots of traffic on this flooring installed in the kitchen, hallway and bathroom areas. High traffic areas, so far, no scratches. The chairs have slide back in forth from the table, etc... seems to look like it's going to hold up very well. Also, we used 3/8ths thick plywood under where we are adding additional cabinets to save money and to avoid running out of the material. As I stated earlier, we should've accounted for more waste, even though in the end we managed to use most of our waste along the way and had very little waste. We also used the scraped to go up on the kick plate of the cabinets which isn't shown in the picture here. It was my fathers idea and because I believe it will be so durable and it looks very nice we decided to use the small leftover pcs that we'd normally throw away for that.
Also, because I originally wanted to go with Ceramic Tile and we had opened the kitchen up and made it larger by taking the wall between the kitchen and the enclosed porch down. The porch floor was cement and the sub floor for the kitchen was wood. We felt better using this product and it holding up due to the contracting of the wood from hot to cold, etc...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DE horrible locking system
Boards came mostly damaged on corners. There was no box damage so one must assume they were damaged before shipping. Had to pick and choose pieces with the least
amount of damage so the damaged pieces would be on ends to be cut off. We will never buy Hampton Bay products. The cost is high and the product is poor. There are many better companies out there. Prego for one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JSmith0507 Awful locking system!
The pieces don't "lock" together as they should and the result is sliding and gapping. Worst locking system I've ever installed. Took 3-5 times longer to install than it should have. Finished project looks okay, but there are still a few tiny gaps. Maybe I'll be the only one to notice. Hope it holds up!
Next time, I'll stay with Pergo or Armstrong. Both fit together much, much better!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Great example of a bad quality control program....
For the price I expected a lot better. This stuff, while each panel looks good, came with chips in edges and damaged corners (some, not all). None of the panels would not stay interlocked, no matter what I tried. They will lay in fine but the slightest nudge will unseat them. I've installed other laminate floors using different brands that were much cheaper than this and they installed just fine.
This product, if manufactured under a stricter quality control process, might be okay, since I see other people have decent reviews about the installation, but evidently I got a bad batch. Apparently others have too from the other reviews I see, which means you have no idea what you're going to get when you buy this.
I had to rip up the whole floor and buy something else - wasted time and money over an overpriced substandard product.
This does not reflect on Home Depot but I would think they should inquire about the numerous quality issues brought up about this product.
