Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by MNJOE Don't make the mistakes I made...
Here are a couple of tips:
1. Don't over do it. I corrected some dips in my plywood subfloor but put too much product on, now I have hills! This stuff won't sand down with a power sander (it removes the grit from the sandpaper). If you are unsure, add thin layers and build your way up. It will take more time but you won't create more problems.
2. Get some air movement and heat in the room. I found the same problems with long drying times as other reviewers, but turning up the thermostat, adding a space heater and/or turning on a fan can help this product dry faster.
3. Wipe up spills and dry tools before the product dries. Clean up with water and a sponge is easy if the product is still wet.
Expect a gritty, sandy finish, a stinky smell (my opinion), but a solution to dips and sags in floors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by CLS13 Poor Product at a High Price
The mix was thick and stuck to the tools so was very difficult to work with. Did not self level at all due to the thickness. Finished application was no were near flat since it stuck to the tools. Drying time was very long even at 70 degrees. Product was very expensive for what it was. Now have to fix work with a cement based leveling product which I should have used in the first place.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by HOMEuser WON'T DRY, GRITTY/SANDY FINISH
I bought this for plywood joints, and edges near concrete walls that are not flush with the floor wood underlayment for vinyl tile. After 3 hours I looked up reviews which some people like myself aren't getting good results and was worried. After 9 hours it's still wet even at joints where it's spread very thin. This is my first review and pretty mad since everything was going smoothly until I tried this already made product. Hopefully i don't have to remove all the product (which never turns out good) and try the other mixes with water. Also compared to drywall spackle this doesn't go on even and turned into a small mess which right after I though I shouldn't of gone the extra step and be better with wood on wood seems with a gap.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by Jeremy66 Doesn't dry quickly and isn't self-leveling
I bought this stuff instead of the 50 pound bag of self-leveling underlayment because I only had to cover about 3 square feet under a bathroom vanity that wasn't tiled like the rest of the bathroom. I literally spread this on top of the original tile to bring it up to the same height as the rest of the bathroom tile before installing my new vanity. That was on Saturday and it is Monday night and the stuff still isn't dry enough to put in the new vanity. It is at most 1/4" thick on the grout lines of the old tile, but much less than that on the tops of the old tiles. The edges are hard but I can still push in with my fingers in the middle. I know I didn't mix it improperly since it comes pre-mixed. The bathroom is climate controlled, so it is at least 68 degrees in there and I left the door open for air circulation.
Also, this stuff was difficult to get perfectly smooth with the trowel. I will attribute this more to my inexperience with the trowel than the product. The self-leveling stuff you just pour and watch it smooth itself out, then pour a little more until you have the coverage you need. Next time I'll just buy that stuff, even though it is more of a pain to mix and I'd have a ton left over.
