Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DadFromNYS Great product
Let me explain the "Ease of installation" rating. This type of product, bamboo flooring, is not easy to install. I'm on my 3rd carbide blade and soon to be 2nd router bit. It's that hard of a wood. To make matter even more difficult, I did a ribbon around the perimeter then a diagonal interior. That meant every course had at least 2 45-degree cuts and grooves. I strongly suggest the flooring staples the manufacturer suggest and the flooring pneumatic stapler gun too.
I love the flooring. I've gotten so many WOW's from friends when they enter my house. I've done 3 room for over 750 square feet. Next up second floor foyer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by W3OZ We are very happy after 3 months
I am not much of a carpenter, in fact most would call me a wood butcher. I am 72 yeas old and I am working on restoring our home we have lived in for 38 years. One of the many tasks I have done recently was to replace our floor tiling in our kitchen and breakfast area. A total of about 500 square feet. I have never installed a wood floor other than a small floor in one of our bathrooms.
I ordered this particular flooring because we both loved the color and liked the idea that it was solid bamboo which we understood was the most durable for a kitchen. We are mostly alone in the house but we do have two large energetic dogs so durability was high on our list of requirements.
I was able to install it with little problems other that is so hard. In places where I could not use a floor nailer, I had to pre-drill pilot holes to get nails to go in without bending. I did not have anything special for a pneumatic nailer. Just a cheep Harbor Tools nailer. I do have a good compressor with sufficient power and I made sure that the regulator was set at the correct pressure at all times. I hardly had any problems at all. I used number 16 cleats and as long as I took my time, made sure I was square when I used the mallet to drive the cleat all went very well.
After 3 months the floor looks absolutely beautiful. Even with our dogs running round and round even to the point of slipping and falling, and us moving new appliances in and installing other things in the kitchen there are NO marks or scuffs of any kind. We just use a little floor cleaner on a mop to get what dirt we track in and food stuff we drop.
I have no affiliation with the manufacture or Home Depot at all. I am just a happy customer. I will be ordering another 500 square feet this coming month to install in our family room to replace a very worn and old carpet. We could not be happier with the quality of the flooring. Just make real sure you are getting the stranded solid bamboo.

Ordered two more boxes to finish a room with leftover flooring I had from 3 years ago. Really is high quality with a nice finish. I have 2 Bulldogs and they can't come close to scratching this flooring with their nails. My daughter managed to slightly scratch it with her baby walker over time. Nothing drastic. I clean it with pine sol and water mix and a microfiber mop. Cleans up great and should last a very long time before I would need to sand and poly. Easy to instal yourself but if you don't know what you're doing, leave it to the pros.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Northernhusky Did it myself, and love it
I changed my whole house from carpet to this bamboo.
32 cases total, and my waste was less than 5%. Very easy to install with a chop saw, table saw, and jig saw.
Most of the chopped pieces can be used as the start of the next row. Only waste came from closets and doorways. A couple of imperfect pieces, but they were salvageable when you need a partial piece to start or finish a row. Not bad for 32 cases!
Looks fantastic, and my dogs nails do not scratch it. After a few days of sliding around, he now walks gingerly.
I would definitely recommend this product(and I never recommend anything)

I love this floor. It looks amazing and after almost 1 year there are no scratches! I am planning on putting this in my dining room.

Flooring looks nice. Lots of color variations. I can't comment on the ease of installation as I had it professionally glued down.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dogbolter Terrible product
This product was extremely difficult to install. My contractor spend days on it. The problem was in trying to staple it to the floor, using either staples or nails. The tongue of the wood split every time. We have still not completed the installation and are now considering returning the product.

We purchased over 300 sq feet of this product. It appealed to us because it is eco friendly and the hardness of the wood. We are not dissapointed. The quality is excellent for the price and the wood is harder than other solids. Very few damaged pieces and these could be cut and used anyway. We are very happy with our purchase and the color is beautiful.
