Rated 5 out of 5Â by MichelleCreek Beautiful!!
After a visit to a few home improvement stores and tile places and not finding what I wanted, I decided to gamble and buy something that looked nice online, knowing it could look difference once I received it. The gamble paid off, this tile was exactly what I was looking for. It's has a slight appearance of stone, but still a very soft looking texture and color. It's very modern and versatile. I didn't install it and we've only had it a few weeks so I can comment on installation or wear and tear, but as of now I am very happy with how it looks and feels.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by daisy428 Great Quality; Great Value
Ordered this tile after receiving shattered slate. This is beautiful for a much lower price. This is a solid heavy tile. My installer was impressed with the quality for such a great price. Looks great in my bathroom with a dark grey grout.

The product itself is pretty amazing for the very low price. Looks fantastic, has a great color (much lighter than the image online as I see it on my screen though) and it looks really beautiful installed. Product was shipped 4 to a box, each box about 40lbs. About 20% of the tiles I received were chipped. Delivery cost on the entire order of 480 lbs came out to $18. Can't beat that, I even if a lot of the tiles come in chipped.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carol Smooth, totally flat and comfortable under foot.
We had these installed in the "Concrete" color on our new screen porch- 24 boxes in all. I could tell the pro installers were a little challenged, so I am glad we did not attempt it. There was not a single broken or chipped tile on delivery, so they are well packed and arrived quickly. The reviewer with the large kitchen was right: for a large room (300 square feet) they DO darken the room significantly. We chose the "quartz" sanded grout from HD (Custom building products) to brighten it up and highlight the running bond. These tiles have a sort of laser printed stone look pattern sort of adhered to the porcelain body of the tile- that seems to be the standard way to manufacture stone look tiles- in some brands, you can see the repetition of the fake stone prints: this tile, however, has such a small, speckled pattern, its not noticeable. You can see how the tile is printed on if you order a Bullnose piece ( # 203869376) as a sample, like I did before I ordered 300 square feet. I am not sure if that printed coating can be etched off- i.e. if you spill acid or some type of chemical on the floor. Or if you drop something on it.
There is absolutely no "lippage" of these planks like some fired porcelain tiles, so the install is completely flat where the end of the tile meets the middle of another tile. We saw these same tiles at a high end tile store for double the price (different brand name, "Dimensions", same color names, same sizes). Glad to get them at a discount.

Having looked at some of the other comments, I feel it is important to point out that the quality of this product and its price are exceptional. I have personally seen people pay in the $5 a square foot range for similar tiles. Second, rather than pretend to be a decorator or tile installer, get a professional to do it because it's not the products fault for installation by a novice. Naturally, colors will be different in person, yet based on what is available for pictures, this material is very close, though a shade or two darker than shown (but a non-issue). Finally, as a trade professional, there are a few real pieces of input to give:
1. The tile cuts very well on a quality cutting board with minimal fish tails and grinds nicely too.
2. The material is very flat, which can be an issue with tiles over 20 inches, especially porcelain.
3. There is hardly any variance in the sizes, if any, and the differences I measured are less than 1/32 (which is practically non-existent).
4. The tiles come very well packaged with wraps around the boxes and plastic corners inside the boxes to prevent broken corners (previous dye lots may have been different).
5. The tiles have an odd length size, but if you choose to use a spacer, preferably 1/8, this will help get rid of the 32nds in the measurements (the edges are nearly rectified, but a slight 1/16 bevel is there).
6. Use a latex modified thin-set for this material to ensure a long lasting installation.
7. Install this as a brick-joint pattern.
