Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sid Excellent looking flooring but difficult locking mechanism
Floor looks wonderful once installed but like many others have stated the locking mechanism is a bear to work with.
This was my first time installing a laminate floor and I installed about 1100 sq ft of this flooring in my home. (Eventually going to install another ~300sq ft in 2 other bedrooms) Once I figured out a good method to lock the pieces together it went very quickly. I did damage a few boards while trying to figure out a good way to get the pieces to lock together.
I could not get the boards to lock together properly as described in the instructions. A floor layer friend gave me a few tips and everything went good from there on out.

We had the budget for wood floors, I wanted wood floors, and we have an old English Tudor house in the country that would've looked amazing with wood floors. But I had two problems: first, because we live in the country there is a ton of gravel and dust tracked in daily to my home. And second, I have four kids! The obvious choice was, of course laminate and now that it's installed I am SO glad I made that choice! I love this floor! It looks like wood and it is a dream to clean. 500 sq ft takes just a few minutes. We had tile before and it took forever to mop and grout cleaning was a yearly nightmare.
There was a sample of this in our local home depot (and I noticed it in many home depots), but I wasn't interested in it at first given the greyish look it seemed to have. I wanted something brown to match some existing wood trim around our home. I highly recommend purchasing a box of whatever flooring you are considering, and laying it down in the room of choice before spending thousands of dollars on an investment like flooring. You can always return it easily. To me, this floor looked nothing like the sample! It also comes in "Country Oak Sundown" and it was a tough choice because that is beautiful too. But in the end we chose dusk because it just looked more realistic.
It's been in our home for 5 weeks now and I'm still loving it. There are over 12 unique patterns and they all have a deep texture to the look which makes it really look like wood. One thing I was worried about was if things would get stuck in the little cracks between the boards, but I have not had any problem with that at all. It is so easy to sweep and I use a very damp microfiber mop to clean it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nannykins Gorgeous flooring and a great value!
This flooring was purchased to replace my downstairs flooring. We decided on it from a picture online and were a little worried about how it would look when we installed it since we hadn't seen it at the store. There are plenty variations in the different pieces to give a very natural look. I'm very pleased with the flooring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garths Beautiful Durable Flooring
If you are looking for a "natural, old wood" look.... this is it! Beautiful floor. It is a very neutral brown.. so any color would look nice with it. The planks are thick (thicker than any other laminate flooring we have installed). It appears to be well made, very durable, it's super easy to clean, and dog nails have not scratched it. We are very happy with it! It wasn't the easiest floor to install... the planks do not "lock". You get a plank started, and all seems well... but once you get to the end.. the front end has slipped back out. If you have help (one person to stand on the front end, while the other goes down the plank tapping it in place) it goes in a lot easier. It was worth the little extra effort to install it though.. very nice flooring and we are very happy with it!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by emanon Love my new floor
I love this flooring because of the look, the feel underfoot, and I'm to understand from my installer it was quite easy. I felt the price was pretty good as well. I read reviews after i purchased it (I know, backwards) and was pleased to read it looked like old barn wood. I guess that is the drawback with small samples in store, you don't get to see how it looks in a large area. However, I couldn't be more pleased. sorry the pix don't show alot of the floor, but give an idea.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GigEm This floor looks beautiful in our home.
We replaced all our downstairs carpet with this floor. We have a large dog and busy family, so we wanted something rustic looking in case it did get scratched, it would blend in. We have noticed a couple of tiny chips, but these could have been caused by some other home improvements we are doing. The floor holds up well to the dog and kids. The floor is pretty easy to install after a little practice. It does not click into place like another brand, so it's harder to tell when it's together tightly. Many times the first board in the row would separate when adding a new board. We ended up just tapping down the whole row after placing the following boards to keep it tight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LMR820 Great flooring
We love the look of this flooring. Very rustic as we wanted. My husband has installed flooring before but this job was a little more work than we both anticipated. You will definitely need 2 people to install if you do it yourself.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bradlee Beautiful but horrible
By far the biggest pain in the butt to install,the flooring is thick yes, but is it durable, no It chips and it's really difficult to get to lock together an almost nonexistent tongue and groove makes for a huge headache. Also not the best quality either. But on the plus side it is beautiful
