Rated 5 out of 5Â by luigino Easy to install, very durable, and looks great!
This product was easy to install for my wife and I. Did the living room and hall, and the master bedroom. After we installed the floor, had the kids visit from PA. They brought their 70 pound lab with them. I was worried that the floor would have all kinds of marks on it! Well, after the visit not one mark on the floor. Very durable! We also have a dog and it's holding up well. Just looks great! We are planning to do the other 2 bedrooms now. We are pleased to get rid of the carpet and have a nice clean, dust free home! Just a great product to have in our home!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HappyWife Absolutely LOVE this floor!
We installed 20 boxes of this floor into our living room and dining room in less than 8 hours. Quality of planks in every box was excellent. You do need to mix the planks between boxes to avoid color blocking and achieve the traditional wood floor look. Since this is a floating floor, there is a slight hollow noise and occasional popping that I don't get with my tongue and groove floor.
Regarding the hardness of the floor: my husband and I dropped soup cans on multiple wood floor samples and this was the only sample that did NOT dent. :-) But you have to be sure you get the woven or strand bamboo because the regular bamboo is softer than most woods.
I was frustrated that I had to order the baseboard as it is not stocked in any stores in my heavily populated area.(and no one at the store told me I had to order it so I thought I could pick it up once we were done installing the floor.) After we picked up the baseboard we realized we were going to need quarter round, which also needed to be ordered. You will notice in the pic that we used oak and stained it dark to match our furniture as I didn't want to wait another 1.5 weeks for a shipment. But now I need a transition piece for the foyer ceramic tile and will have to order that, and wait 1.5 weeks. That is the only frustrating part - the accessories are not in stock and take over a week to get in.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by vrflooring Too many bowed pieces and too many air pockets after installation
We purchased nearly 1000 sft of this hardwood floor. Installed them rapidly.
While doing so, we noticed every 3rd or 4th piece bowed about 1/2 inch in the middle.
Some we kept it aside, others we pressed in position, it seemed to fit nicely.
But once all the flooring was done, we started noticing significant air pocket spots all over the flooring.
only way to remove this "bouncy" spots is by removing everything and reinstalling. What a waste:(
The flooring now feels like cheap laminate. You might as well pay less and go for laminate.
Plus, we had to throw away nearly 100sft of bowed flooring away. Our return on this investment is very poor.
Oh, by the by, we followed the instruction 100%

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DenLaC This purchase was a total loss.
I installed the floor and it looked great for a couple of weeks. Then some water got on a couple of boards. The boards warped and lifted up. I removed half the floor to get to the pieces and found that 4 were bad. I replaced them with a few extra I had and relaid the floor. A couple of weeks later the lock on the boards started coming apart. Now 1/4 of the floor is starting to come apart. I have never been so dissatisfied with a product in my life. This floor is a total useless product and I can't afford to replace it. I can't believe that you would sell such a junk product. I gave it a Poor rating because there was not a choice for useless.
