Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aliante Good purchase and easy to install. Bad quality right out of the box.
We bought this product originally to do just our bedroom but ended up doing our hallway, Stairs, and office with it. I bought in total of just over 60 cases. Very easy to put in and to work with. Problem is that several, about 4 full cases, of the planks were either scratched or had some glue/finish splatter all over them which made them not usable. I did send an email to The Company, not Home Depot, but they never responded to my email. So now I will have to order more of course to finish my massive project. Very disappointed in the 4 cases that I can do nothing with. Therefore I probably would not recommend this product because of how frustrating it is to open new cases and then have so many pieces that cannot be used.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rnicole Not engineered hardwood!
After reading all the reviews we decided to go with this flooring due to our home being on the damp side. I will say this floor should not be considered engineered hard flooring at all. I think the layer of "wood" literally is paper thin, if that. Installation was easy. I have multiple scratches already. This is a case of "you get what you pay for". I love the look of the floor, but so so very disappointed in quality and how this product is marketed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lauren Looks great, not very durable
looks great, we get tons of compliments. My husband and dad installed and said it was very easy. My dad buys homes and fixes up so has worked with all types of flooring and said this was great to installed, cut, etc. I have a teenager a toddler and two dogs. It was almost immediately scratched up. Not very durable at all. It does show every piece of dirt which is obvious since it is so dark. I'm a neat freak so I don't mind because I clean floors every two days and I almost like seeing the dirt so I know to clean rather than not seeing and living with it all around. One dog is a white boxer who sheds horribly and it is so noticeable. If you have any light haired pets that shed be prepared to clean. I am happy with how it looks but will probably have to replace in 10 years. If we were an older couple with grown kids or no kids and no pets I'm sure it would be a different story!

We made our first engineered hardwood purchase based on the location - the master bedroom. The color, ease of installation, and surprising comfort all make us happy with our choice. The installers were great. Love our floors so much, we intend to expand the same flooring into other bedrooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by itchibahn Looks good but too thin layer of stain
We have so much furniture, we couldn't move them into other rooms. So, we moved them all to one side of the room then began our work, as shown on photos.
I've used 3-in-1 underlayment, and began the work with 1/4" expansion gaps all around. It wasn't difficult, it just took lots of patience cutting the planks. The hardest part was moving the furniture. Once finished, moved all furniture to the finished side and continued.
After finishing the 1st room, I was more confident, and began another room. Then I ran into something strange half way through the room. All the planks I've installed had very thin layer of what seems real wood, then rest was a MDF/HDF But the subsequent planks had very thin layer of real wood at top layer, MDF/HDF at middle layer, and real wood at the bottom layer. Although they all fit together, I got curious and googled. According to many sites, Engineered Wood Flooring Planks has thin top layer of real wood, MDF/HDF at the middle, and again real wood at the bottom layer.
I took both samples back to HD, the staff say they both are engineered wood and must be from different batch of order. Since I've already finished one room and over half on other room with MDF/HDF bottom layer, he reordered them delaying 3 days. When new batch came in, it was again with real wood bottom layers. So he suggested uninstall and return all the planks for replacement.
Though I was very disappointed, I wasn't about to go through moving the furniture again. So, I continued on using the new planks with real wood bottom layer.
They do look beautiful. But I did notice that they scratch so easily, as these has extremely thin stains. I used furniture moving discs from HD, that has thick layers of soft felts, but it still scratched the floor in some areas. You might want to consider clear coating to protect the color. Luckily, these two rooms are not used often. The other things is that almost every steps I take in these two rooms makes chirping sound. Yes, the cement floor was cleaned and made sure they were level.
For other rooms with more traffic, I will definitely consider higher quality planks.

The initial install was simple and straight forward. The appearance is nice and diverse in wood grain patterns and color. The color is consistent but the grains give each piece a nice distinction. I am curious as to durability as we have just installed. We have 4 children so durability will become apparent very soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiana Looks Great in upstairs/bedroom
I put this in my upstairs and soon to be bedroom. It looks beautiful and the color is exactly what I wanted. Some people mention concerns of longevity, but this is not in a high traffic area for me, so it wasn't a concern for me.

Beautiful floors. There may be a few pieces of wood that is a bit difficult to interlock when laying the floors down. But don't get frustrated, just try different pieces until it snaps into place. Then there are many pieces that fit perfectly and smoothly together on the first try. Seeing the room completed makes it worth all the time and effort!
