Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RYRY Avoid this tile - it absorbs grout
We just tiled a small bath with this. It is beautiful until you grout it. Check out the photos. I would pass on this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crissy9 Beautiful but fragile
I did my research and found that porcelain tiles were both very durable and stain resistant and decided this would work for my kitchen counter. I love the shiny marble resemblance and can't afford the real thing so this was the next best choice. However 3/4 of the way through laying it I discovered it stains. I was using an eye liner pencil to write on tiles for the contractor and after 30 min and 6 different chemicals I finally got it off with vinegar and soda. I'm a little worried it may have taken off some of the coating but it is not nearly as noticeable as the "back splash ^" I had written on it. I went to buy sealer immediately. Home Depot salesman did not believe that this occurred on porcelain tile and told me only the grout would need seal but I finally convinced him the tiles do as well. The counters are done but not in everyday use yet so I will update later on durability. Crossing fingers seal will protect the beautiful tiles.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SmileySue Great looking tile
Still a work in progress but looking good. I was looking high and low for a porcelain tile that looks like marble/natural stone and this one was the closest/most reasonably priced option I could find. These tiles come in 12x12, 12x24, and 24x24 but different Home Depots have different sizes available. You can also purchase the matching bullnose (although the bullnose is not the best match - too grayish) and mosaics (not the best quality but a good match) online from a couple of vendors.
I used the 12x12 for my shower wall and backsplash, but I cut every 12x12 tile in half so they were rectangular 6x12...sounds like a lot of work and it wasn't easy, but it was totally worth it for the look I was going for. I ordered the matching mosaic (available from other vendors) for the bathroom floor...mosaics had some chips and weren't the best quality but they were ok. I used the 12x24 version on the floor in the kitchen and hallway.
Word to the wise on these tiles...I found the color and pattern difficult to match. You can't really choose too funky a pattern or colors to combine with these. Look online for some ideas for matching calacatta tiles with countertops, cabinets, and furniture. I found that I had to stick with gray, white, beige, and darker brown wood tones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary I love this product!
I just had this product installed 5 months ago. It was used as flooring in an indoor sunroom and a bath. Out of the many tiles I looked at, this one stood out. It's amazing how much it looks like natural marble. I also like the rectangular size, something different besides square. It is easy to clean, just a vacuum and a light mopping. I would not hesitate to use this product again.

I had a problem after grouting a non sanded sandstone brown. It seems like grout bled through a few tiles. I made shore I purchased same lot. I will be speaking to Home Depot manager and see how he can help to remedy this problem. Shame looked great going up till after grout.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Snowday Quality control is an issue, as well as customer service in Pittsfield, MA store
Random patterns are OK for many tile, but diagonal tiles that go both ways are a disaster. This product has mixed diagonal so 1/3 of the tiles were unusable. Floor tile manager in PIttsfield, MA tried to tell me that it's OK to put them up with diagonals going both ways, even in a tub surround. As the customer I should get what I want, not what a floor manager tells me I should have. Avoid this product if you want the diagonals going the same way, unless you are prepared to throw away 1/3 of the tiles.
