Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VERY inconsistent Color This is the same glass tile from "Premium Mosaics" (also available on Amazon) 1. The glass tiles are not consistently placed on the mats. The joints are sometime 1/8" and sometimes butted against one another. This isn't a big deal... it's a bout 2% of the tiles, not 20%, but it is a quality issue. If this were the only thing, I would have given the product 3 or 4 stars. 2. THIS IS THE BIG PROBLEM. The tile batches are NOT consistent inside of the box. You will get one 12x12 of tile that is arctic white and the next 12x12 mat of tile in the box will be the greenish version of white tile--it will still be labeled Arctic Ice, but it is NOT. We didn't notice this until our contractor had installed 2 boxes of tile (over $200 worth of tile) and it was a checkered board of arctic white and greenish tile. We ultimately ended up having to go to 4 different Home Depots and digging through the boxes till we had the 42 squares of tile that were all truly Arctic Ice I've included a picture of the color variation. This is the first time we installed it. The contractor had installed the tile the wrong direction and not staggered the tile sheets properly. We didn't think that the color was the result of the batches, we thought the contractor had mixed tiles from Amazon and from Home Depot. We had to buy more boxes from Home Depot so the contractor could install it properly a 2nd time, and that was when the checkered board pattern was really visible and we realized that it wasn't a problem with the tiles coming from different vendors and boxes... but that the variation was within the tile squares that were in the individual boxes themselves. Just a warning.... skip this product unless you only need one 12x12 sheet of tile or you don't care about the tile not matching. January 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Backsplash Used in the kitchen as a backsplash. Turned out GREAT! Didn't experience any issues with ripples or color variations. April 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, but Inspect the tile carefully before purchase ! Once installed the tile is really sweet, but as I stated in the subject inspect them carefully. Once installed I closely examined them and noticed that many of the tiles had a "ripple" effect on one edge of each of the small tile pieces. Come to find out there is what appears to be a white plastic coating on the back of the glass which causes the appearance flaw. Unfortuantely I did not notice it until after the tile was installed. Not a biggie, most people probably wouldn't notice it, but thought it was worth mentioning. Additionally, be extra careful when installing that the small tiles are flat, or level. If you apply uneven pressure when installing the 12 section of tile it will show in your finished project. Perhaps use a small piece of plywood or similar to apply pressure to the entire 12" square tile uniformly. If you take your time to inspect and install these tiles the end result is breath-taking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Considering the cost, would expect better quality control by manufactuer Brought 6 boxes of these tiles ( at $100 bucks a box) and began installing. Used the thin set especially made for glass and highly recommend it; the bonding was strong and it still gave you time to work the tiles. The problem was in the quality of the tiles. Some of then 12X12's were off color. They were tinged slightly brown. This is clearly a failure at the manufacturer to conduct good quality control. Considering the price, it's unforgiveable. Advise that if you buy these, conduct aggressive inspection before you put them on the wall. If I had it to do over again, I probably would go with these. July 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product but beware the inexperienced installer! Home Depot provided a good product at a reasonable price and delivered it promptly. We, however, dropped the ball and assumed our installer knew what he was doing as he had installed ceramic tile previously and did a good job. He totally botched this job - I can only think because he is not used to glass and/or mosaic tiles - so buy this product - just get a good reference on your tile guy and make sure he has installed this product before!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tile! Be observant! I love this tile on my bathroom walls and in my shower! Glad I read an earlier review about watching for tile to be similar in color. About every 5th sheet, tile was slightly different color, and only noticeable from a distance, but very obvious. I had tile setters remove those sheets immediately and glad I did! Home Depot took this tile back and gave me credit. I used it with 1/4 round chrome Schlueter strip (also only in stock at Home Depot) as an edging and it's sleek. Be observant as some tiles are crooked on the mesh and just need to be popped off and readjusted. Always watch the color in all kinds of light to be sure tile color is consistent. I paired this tile with an accent back wall in my shower of Key Largo decorative glass tile, and love the results! Great product for the price! July 17, 2011
