Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeOP Looks great.
I agree that the locking tabs are difficult to master,but I found the secret. Tapping directly on the edge to lock with a mallet will damage the edge and make the next row not lock properly. To avoid this I screwed a scrap piece on to a plastic installation tool that came in a kit. I then locked that piece
into the edge of the piece I was installing and tapped into place. No more damaged edges and it stayed together much better. I also used wood glue on a few stubborn pieces that had been damaged before I found the "trick". After over a year I have had no separated joints and the finish is still like new.

Easy to install. Looks fantastic.
Acclimated for several days and clicked together with a light tap of a mallet.
Very hard, chewed up the blade in my miter saw. That is a good thing, I'd rather buy a new blade than replace a dented floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beachgal Great floors!
After reading reviews about installation being difficult we were hesitant to buy but since we we loved the color and design so we purchased anyway. We acclimated the floors at least 3 to 7 days to the room and my husband had no problems putting them in. They look great and are very sturdy.

Purchased this flooring for my entire house, 1600 sq ft rancher and had it installed by Home Depot sub-contractor. Exceptional quality for the price which was unbelievable and one of the most attractive laminate floors that I've seen. The color is a great choice especially if you have pets as it hides any dust or dirt. I just use a swiffer once a week to keep clean. Flooring was installed over concrete as well as a wood sub-floor with an underlayment and my house is exceptionally warmer this time of year than it was with carpet. The only issue that the installers encountered were the crooked walls in my house since it is an older home. This flooring is also textured which adds to the rustic charm and goes well with any decor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jillamp Difficult to Install, but looks great
Was hesitant about this flooring choice, because the sample looked very digital, so I bought a box and put together the 7 planks and it looked great on a larger scale. Purchased 11 boxes to install and not one came with instructions, so we had to seek them out on Mannington's website.
When installing, we had a very hard time getting the planks to stay together. You would hammer (with a mallet and plastic tool) in the end of the next board, then the last board would come out lengthwise in places. It took a ton of hammering and a much longer install time than I expected, even with 3 people putting it together. It took us about 12 hours to install just the underlayment and floor in a 170 s.f. room.
The finished room came out beautiful. Product looks great, rustic, but not too unkept.
