Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fenix8452 Excellent solution for my bathroom
I purchased this flooring because at the time it was a great price and looked like tile instead of hardwood. I needed to cover a very old linoleum floor in my only bathroom. The old floor was so broken down that parts were flaking off.
I purchased this tile and accompanying trim. I have only done one other floor, a peel-and-stick type, so this was a first for me. I luckily had a friend with appropriate cutting tools. With his help, this was a rather easy job of laying the laminate. The pattern was not that hard to make look good, but it will lead to a little more wasted cuts than the hard-wood floor type, so buy a little extra.
The surface and type were perfect for a bathroom and looks awesome so far. I included a picture, it has completely changed the way that bathroom looks and feels, and I've gotten compliments from people that have visited. I'm only intending on this being a temporary floor for a few years until I can get up the money to completely gut it, so this was a nice solution that is priced well enough that I don't have to feel bad when I want to replace it again.
This looks and feels like a high end floor, but for much less money!
The only negative comment I have is that I had the boxes shipped to my house, and one of the two boxes I ordered had quite a few chipped corners, more than there needed to be. I'm sure the fault lies more with the shipper (UPS) than Home Depot, but be sure to inspect when your stuff arrives. Was almost a problem for us, but I had bought enough extra to make due. Home Depots return policy is very friendly and would have gladly replaced the box, but I didn't end up needing to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robbiecontractor Horrible Horrible Product
This product appears pretty good, and looks great when first installed, but is total garbage. My $2500 floor was ready for the dump in TWO WEEKS! This product can not tolerate ANY WATER! The joints swell and there is no fixing it. The product looks like tile, so where are you going to install it (Kitchens and Baths right!) Don't you dare unless you are anxious to rip out your new floor in under a month. Like many Hampton Bay products this very very cheap garbage. Cant imaging why Depot even carries this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KSR65 Love the look but would not recommend
After 16 years I decided to redo my entire kitchen. I purchased this for a kitchen remodel. I love the look and how things pulled together. HOWEVER after about 2 months I noticed it had several chips and was starting to peel. A month later I noticed that it was starting to come apart. When installed we made sure all seams where tight and snug. These issues can not easily be repaired. I would have to tear my entire kitchen apart.
I would not recommend this for a kitchen or a high traffic area. Maybe for a room that you don't plan on spending much time in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rookie Easy to install, good value
I'm a little surprised so many have reviewed this as being difficult to install. Once I figured out the trick to holding the next plank at the correct angle, the long side easily and securely locks in place. Then it's just a matter of using the installation tool to tap it into it's final position. Like all snap together laminates I've done, when you get the joint "right" you essentially can't see the joint or feel it with your fingernail. That's your "test" to make sure it's together right.
If you are having to beat the heck out of it, or are struggling, stop and reconsider your approach, because something is wrong. Get it right, and it's easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by butterfly This product is very durable
Bought this product for my kitchen, myself and my two sons installed this product. We had the usual issues as far as matching the pattern, Once the first two rows were installed it was smooth sailing after that.Also purchased the matching quarter round trim, and was pleased with the look of this flooring. The sales woman at our Home Depot was very helpful, friendly and had a lot of knowledge with this product. I would recommend this product to my friends and family.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Read this review if you have pets, kids, or plan to walk on this floor
If you plan on using this flooring as an every day high traffic flooring material STAY AWAY!!!!
Please buy a box, walk on a few pieces for a week or two and look at the results! You too will see what we are complaining about I wish one of the other reviews on this site told me to do this....
I purchased this flooring because it was the only flooring that had the pattern I liked. I was thrilled about the price of the material as well. I have over 550 sq ft of kitchen area the floor was installed in.
The installation of this floor went easier than I expected it to. I was thrilled to get rid of my old dull scratched up floor until..... Until we started walking on the new floor. This material scratches so easily it is ridiculous. Home Depot does not warranty the floor and passes you to the mfg. who stated that the scratching I was complaining about is normal and is not covered by their warranty!
I had my other floor down for over 11 years and it was scratched and dull, but it earned the right to look like that. That floor went through a dog, three kids, walkers, high chairs, and 4 nephews so each and every scratch was expected. This new floor is not even a year old and it looks as bad as the 11 year old flooring we replaced.
Needless to say, I am out over $1,500 in flooring material purchased and installed and I still have a floor that looks as bad as the original flooring.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by debturn2k Great product for the price!
The floor looks great down and installation was easy, a bit larger then other laminate flooring we have worked with in past which made it a bit more difficult to handle but not too bad. I would not recommend this flooring in areas such as kitchens and baths but for other rooms it works great!!
