Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DS1274 Brown and "Made in China" Tile
When buying "Carrara" you expect Italian or at least an attempt to look like Italian marble.
In my opinion and because it states "Made in China" this is not Italian marble. It has brown veining instead of grey like you would expect from Carrara Bianco - of course saying that, this is not really Carrara Bianco.
I only bought a square foot as a sample before placing a larger order, but have attached pictures. There is a big shade variation between the tiles as well as the obvious brown veining.
The positive's if you are looking for a beige marble tile with brown veining - this is a nice tile. It is real marble as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AA Tiles are not all EXACTLY the same size
The hardest part about installing these tiles is that each tile is NOT EXACTLY the same size. This makes putting them in a row and making the lines straight more difficult. Also these tiles are not sealed and needs sealing afterwards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Excellent product and value
Purchased these tiles for a recent bathroom remodel and they turned out beautifully. There were only a few pieces with brown veining that I couldn't use but my Home Depot store accepted these as returns with no hassle. The tiles are sold in a wrapped bundle of 8; but If you're ordering large quantities, it's good to know that each case comes with 10 bundles. This could be helpful if you're trying to get tiles from the same lot with similar coloring. Smaller quantities that I ordered were not shrink-wrapped and had more color variations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJ06 Outstanding Quality - Best Price
After looking at many tile stores I talked to the very helpful team at homedepot.com. The product was shipped ontime and packaged like fine china. No breakages in shipment. The marble was the perfect color (beter than most Italian marble), was uniform in size and the best value for money anywhere. It was also backed with the standard return to any Home Depot it you are not satisfied. My only complaint was that it was not available in 12" x 12" as well. Also be aware honed marble must be sealed with a high quality sealer to prevent staining.

Really wanted to use a Carrara marble for my bathroom floor to match the grey color scheme i was going for. I laid the tile in a herringbone pattern which was not as difficult as everyone says it is. As long as you get the first couple of rows perfect you are golden. I snapped a line down for the the center so i wouldn't get off track which is easy to to since i went up one side of the room back down to the door. I am an average to above average DIY'er and this was my second time doing a floor tile but not in this pattern and size of tile. I did make one mistake and i used sanded grout which made small surface scratched on the entire floor. (i will be re-honing the floor) You can't see them with the average eye but if you look close they are there! So beware of that. Another thing i would like to share is the color variances. I ordered 25% more tile than i need and i was so happy i did. I didn't care for the pieces that had brown veining or that were stark white. The really colorful greys were few and far between. I opened all the boxes and hand picked the tiles i wanted to use. I returned the rest with no issue from home depot. Keep the boxes so you have them to pack the unused tile in. I also only had about 3 square feet of broken tiles out of 88 square feet ordered. Not bad for being shipped for free to my house, 9 boxes it was a huge mess especially when you 18 month old want to play inn the popcorn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mommeee Matte Finish
I ended up returning this product because I wanted a polished finish and this has a matte finish. However, if you want a matte finish, the patterning and colors of this tile are great, especially for the value. I'm sure that they would be easy to install, just like a ceramic subway tile. They were a good quality and great price for the item.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blunt417 Colors not consistent, but HD easy on returns
I ordered a lot for a kitchen backsplash. I get it. It's natural stone so there's going to be inconsistency. The problem is that not only was there a signficant amount of variation in color, there was also inconsistency in the thickness of the tiles and even the direction of the grain. All that being said, the good news is that HD is really nice about returns. My advice is to buy a lot more than you need, then cherry pick for the stuff that works best and is the proper thickness. You can just return the rest. More work, but the finished product looks great.
