Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by athomas1469 I just love this flooring!
product was easy to install once you figured out the click-lock system.it really looks like hard wood flooring in my opinion.cuts really easy with laminate cutter and jigsaw. (hint: if using jigsaw to make detailed cuts, cut this laminate face-down to prevent chipping on the finished side). dirt and prints do show up easily on this floor,but I guess that just comes with having a darker floor. you will definitely need a laminate install kit that includes a pull bar,tapping block, and spacers to install this flooring.so far it is holding up to my 8yr old's brutality, but this is a new install so only time will tell. have planned to install this laminate all over the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie45 I'm in love with this floor
I bought this 625 sq ft of this material and had it delivered to the store. Out of 35 boxes, I had to return 1 box. I think it got damaged in transit. Then, out of the remaining 34 boxes only 1 plank was damaged. I think that's pretty amazing. The contractor I haired to do my house said the job would take a little longer than expected because these planks had to be connected in two places instead of one (sorry, I do not know the contractor's terminology). But he said that was a very good thing because that meant those planks were better than most. I still need to order 9 more boxes to do my small hall and 3 closets. My three small dogs love the floor as well. It looks absolutely stunning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jvaldes Good floors--but not perfect. Here's why...
-- The look of this flooring (for the price) is GREAT
-- I ordered about 800 sqft of this flooring and NOT ONE was damaged. ALL in perfect condition. So, I'm very surprised about other reviews.
-- The problem with this floor is that it gets dirty easily especially if you have kids (I have a 2 and 5 year old).
-- It looks like real wood, with the hand scraped look
-- Other issues:
i) powder/Bathroom floats a bit (since it's pinched against the toilet and it doesn't have room to adjust).
ii) It's not impervious to scratches. Doesn't easily scratch, but when it is, I used a black sharpie and smeared it w/ my fingers to help blend.
iii) If possible, don't install in bathrooms or on the stairway. Steps and risers are flat--looks like laminate. While bathrooms float/bubble up because of toilet.

We replaced a light oak colored floor with this much darker floor. Everyone who has seen it tells us how beautiful it is. I am not much of a fan of laminate flooring, but this looks really nice. To me, it looks like real wood planks. I like the wavy texture on the top that is supposed to make it look and feel like hand scraped wood - it you really look at it, you can tell it isn't, but for the casual observer, it looks really convincing. I also like that it isn't flush from one piece to the next - the edges are beveled down so you have a little groove between each piece of flooring. Again, that just makes it look more like real wood planks. I hate how laminate tends to curl up at the edges of each piece and I am hoping the way these have the beveled edge will keep that from happening. Installation was fairly easy. I have installed laminate before so I was familiar in doing it already. As long as you have the proper saws to cut pieces that need to be cut - especially if you need to cut the long edge - then cutting is easy. The pieces are a bit thin so that is why I said the quality was only good, but it was on special when we bought it so the price far outweighed any downside in my mind. My daughter came to visit after we installed it and asked what material the floor was. She was walking on it barefoot and said she loved the way it felt under her feet. Laminate does tend to show spots and with this being such a dark color, it definitely shows them but we are hoping with time that we will figure out how to keep it clean better.

We just replaced our 7mm oak laminate wood flooring with this and I LOVE IT! I was a little worried about buying something online sight unseen, but the pictures and other reviews (and the price, .99 a sq. ft!!!) sold me on it. I bought 15 boxes to cover 270 sq. ft. It was super easy to cut using a circular saw with a blade made for plywood for the big cuts and a jig saw for the small angle cuts.
We ended up with 3/4 of a box left over and absolutely no mistakes and no damaged boards! My floors look amazing! The 8mm makes a tremendous difference in the flexibility of the flooring. It doesn't feel like your going to break through the boards. The hand scraped aspect looks nice and the slight seam/gap between the boards just makes it look very high end without the cost.
We've installed several types of wood laminate flooring within the past 10 years and this by far has been the easiest to install and the best looking product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by burningberns Floor turned out great! Great product for an incredible price!
This laminate floor was simple to install and went really quick in an open area. We had a hallway that turned the corner that required extra time to make the correct cuts, but overall easy to install.
We ordered 35 boxes of the flooring, and none of the planks were damaged. Every plank was perfect. I noticed that some of the other reviews said there were damaged planks, so I was a little skeptical about getting it, but our experience was that every box was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by savy42 Beautiful flooring for a great price!!!!
I was a bit skeptical when I purchased this flooring because it was so inexpensive. I looked through all the photos being posted by other reviewers and it looked so pretty that I just bit the bullet and took a chance with it. I am so happy I did. We purchased over 3000 square feet of it to put in our entire home (replacing old nasty carpet and new install in our basement). My husband laid nearly all of it by himself and he said it was pretty easy, once you get it figured out. It looks absolutely beautiful in our home and it's quite durable. We have two small boys and so far, despite all their attempts, no scratches or dings. Everything wipes up easily. The only issue I had so far was a baby powder incident with my 16 month old. He got that stuff EVERYWHERE. Most especially in the little cracks. I took a toothbrush and used my vacuum to suck it out as I scrubbed. Then I just used a damp sponge to get any residue. Super easy, though I was worried it wasn't going to clean up well at all. I was happily mistaken. Now I am convinced there is NOTHING they can do to this floor to ruin it. Even permanent marker comes up easily with a magic eraser sponge. Love this flooring!!!
I would like to add that the only issue we had was with the paper stuck to the top board in all the packages. Not sure why they put glue on the backs of these sheets and then stuck them on the boards, but they did. At first it seemed like one board from each box was going to have to be returned, but I quickly discovered that with a little bit of elbow grease and a very damp sponge (paper towels and magic erasers also worked well) it all wiped right off. I was very happy with that discovery. We do have some boards that were damaged during shipment where they were cinched down with a strap of some sort, but other than that.......we had very few that we were unable to use for one reason or another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by courtnykay LOVED THIS FLOORING!
I was nervous about ordering 540sf of flooring online, without ever seeing it in person. But for the price, and the photos online, I took a chance! So glad that I did! It was super easy to install and looks great--there's a lot of variation in the boards so you can't tell if there's any repeat patterns, plus it has the handscraped feel which makes it feel more like real wood. I love it!
