Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MrsLLL What A Disappointment!
We purchased our dream home and it had carpet throughout. With wanting to make improvements, and make our own personal touches we wanted a nice wood flooring. We looked at all of our options and ended up choosing this. We asked all of the important questions regarding our dogs, the fact that we have a house with a large basement underneath, the temperate fluctuations, etc. We were told it would hold up just fine. WRONG!
We had Home Depot install it. It looked beautiful for a couple of months. That was it! We started noticing that there were scratches from the dogs. Then I noticed one area of the hall would sag and pop as I walked over it. Then I started noticing pieces of the edges were coming up. Literally falling apart!
Now we are a year and 8 months since our purchase. We now have edges of the boards missing color. It's bubbling on other boards. It's so scratched and damaged it looks as though the floor has been here since the house was built 25 years ago!
I called Home Depot and requested that my warranty from Home Legends be activated and my flooring be replaced. I am still waiting for someone to get back to me. I called last Friday. Waiting for someone to call to set up a time to come look at my floors to determine whether it's a manufacturing issue, or installation issue...

Change the texture of your walls. Looks Great easy to install. Not just for your floors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Momofthree Terrible Product!!
We bought 1000 sq. ft. of this product a couple of years ago and have so regretted it. The product looks nice but scratches easily. However, the worst part is that it makes a crackling and popping sound when you step on it. My cat can't even step on it without it popping and crackling!!! Awful product!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Product crackles when you walk on it
Floor was installed on dry, level concrete slab by a professional with Home Depot purchased padding beneath. The wood was stored in the room and acclimated before installation. Joints on boards have a tacky waxy substance on them to make the tongue and groove "click" system stick together. When you walk on the floors they make a crackling noise everywhere you step caused by the " joint adhesive" binding. Awful product. If you buy it, glue it down, maybe you'll have better results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HNJB Very Happy
We put this flooring throughout our entire house. We are very happy with it. We put home depots premium underlayment beneath the flooring and we dont have problems with noise that others have mentioned. There are a couple boards that creak when you walk on them but we feel that is from when we installed it we didnt tap each joint so its a joint that isnt as tight as it could and should be. We have 100lb and 50lb dogs that are always inside with us and yes there are scratches but its in on the surface not all the way through the wood. You have to expect that with any engineered hardwood. If you are worried about that you should go with laminate which is a lot more resistant to wear and tear.
We have had this flooring for almost 4 years and are very happy with it. We would purchase it again without a second thought.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sadaboutfloors Would NEVER buy again
The first day this floor was installed I thought I made the right decision! Gorgeous......for only ONE day. If you want to live in your house, have guests over, if you have children, or own a dog, DO NOT BUY this floor. I thought I would actually be able to walk on this floor (imagine that?), but you can not do anything of the sort without it getting scraped, worn, or blotchy. My floor has so many scratches in it I could cry! For the record- I am a neat and clean nut , so the wear is not negligence.
The floor just simply can not handle normal, everyday, wear and tear!!!!! We take shoes off etc..... I just moved the throw carpet and under it the stain has been removed from the floors and is now a lighter color.
I have floors with solid wood in other rooms that are still in good shape after ten years. I am stuck with this floor and extremely disappointed with it! Btw it is only 3 months new!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seikoHoG Much better than I expected.
I have installed a lot of locking flooring and this was by far the easiest installation I have ever experienced.
Note this is not solid hardwood, but rather 1/32 inch veneer on hardboard. Having said that, I believe this is a very durable flooring that will last for many years. This has a scrapped finish which means that no two pieces are identical in appearance or texture. Also it comes in 4 different lengths so there is no repeating pattern. During the installation, I had to repair several nicks and dents caused by the installer (me). I used furniture repair marking pens and the repairs are nearly invisible. Nobody but me will ever see them.
This is a rather dark finish and I was concerned about dust showing easily, but since this has a finish that is between semi-gloss and satin, dust does not show as bad as with the high gloss cherry finishes.
Considering the affordable price, this was an excellent investment.
I gave it 4 stars for quality because, in my opinion, there were several damaged boards that should never gotten by quality control. I was able to use most of them at the start of a row or the end of a row, but quality control should have rejected them.
