Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barb Very nice!
It took some patience to get started but once we were a few rows in it became a lot easier. It looks great and looks like real hardwood

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron Not too hard once you get the hang of it.
While this isn't the easiest laminate to install, I found the by about the 4th row, it became much easier. It is easy to miss locking them correctly, but it SEEMS right. Again, you get the feel for it as you go.
I've installed other laminate before with "makeshift" tools (tapping block etc). I definitely recommend following directions, getting an installation kit, and being patient (constantly tapping as you lower). It really isn't that bad.
We are very happy with the look-- especially for the price. The hand scraped look is great. And the seams make this look a lot like real wood.
We used it for our kitchen. We plan to continue it now into the living room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Not the easiest install but beautiful results...
I'm relatively handy but had never installed a laminate floor before. I bought 1400 square feet for my lake house and installed it with a buddy. It took awhile to get the hang of it but we moved right along once we figured it out. Absolutely beautiful once it's down -

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elain We love our new flooring
Highly recommended. We had this installed by a Home Depot contractor and the results are great. We enjoy the look and feel of this floor. The "real wood" texture was important to us and we didn't want flooring with a shine finish. This floor has a no-glare satin type finish and is very easy to clean and keep clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CatieD Easy to install with the right tools!
My 68 year old mother and I installed 600 square feet of this over two days. I had never installed laminate flooring before and would consider myself a beginner DIYer. This project was tedious but beautiful when done and would recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by emorgan816 Looks beautiful and won't break your budget!
Was looking for laminate flooring for our downstairs that was also budget friendly. I still can't believe how inexpensive this laminate is and how beautiful it looks! So far it has taken the abuse of our two toddlers and is very easy to clean. I like the hand-scraped texture and it really does give it the look of real wood.
We did have it installed by Home Depot so I can not speak to the ease of installation.
Can't beat the quality for the price! I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by smo356 Don't Buy this!!!!
The pieces of flooring look good, but that is the only positive thing I can say. Notice I said "pieces of flooring", because there is not way to make this into a whole floor. The looking system does not work. The "male" part of the system is less than 1/8 of an inch long and may as well been made of paper mache'. It just will NOT stay in place. (Some bean counter somewhere probably figured out that they could make an extra dime on a box by cheaping out on the looking system.) The past few years I have installed about 8 laminate type floors and never had such a poor product. Last week I put in a cork laminate without difficulty. So I know what I am doing. I have loaded 15 boxes back on the truck and am taking it back to the store. I went through 1 box and decided that this is a bad product. Save yourself time & money and get another floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cowgurlie Not happy
We have installed laminate flooring in many rooms. This was by far the most difficult product to work with. It does not lock together easily, it pops out very easily. Even if there were better grades available in this brand, this installation experience would prevent us from ever buying this brand again. We truly were about ready to undo the part of the floor we had done and bring the boxes back to Home Depot. If the nearest Home Depot had been in out town, we would have returned it that day and purchased something different. We have fought it and fought it. NOT happy!
