Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Excellent choice in decorative tile
I love almost everything about this tile. It was easy to install, looks great, and is easy to maintain. The drawbacks are the grout is hard to clean out around the tiles bordered with the metal and even though I bought a whole box of tile, there were evidently two different lots in the same box. I was able to work around the color differences between lots because of the way I was using the tile. One lot I used for the continuous border and the other lot was used to line the insets in shower wall.
Overall, I love this tile and the way it looks in my bathroom.
I'm not sure why the pictures are showing up sideways. They show up correctly in my preview pane but not here. Sorry.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Final backsplash outcome was quite nice, but there were issues...
I only recommend this product because of the final appearance. However, I'd like to share some issues we had while installing this product. First, the metal borders around some of the tiles pop off quite easily. We used Gorilla super glue to put them back on and they stuck quite well after that. The bigger issue was with the colors between stores. We needed a total of 3 boxes, but our local store only had 1. They sent us to another store to pick up another box, plus ordered a 3rd box online for home delivery. We put up the first box on one wall and then used the other box, plus part of the 3rd for the other wall. When we were done, you could see an obvious difference between the two walls. The attached photo shows the wall on the right with the 1st box of tiles and the walls on the left with the second and 3rd boxes. It turns out that the first box was apparently a different dye lot (something you should ask about and be aware of) and had a much greener tinge to it than the other two boxes. We ended up having to tear them out, purchase a few more tiles that matched boxes 1 and 2, and just completed putting them up on the initial wall. At no time did any home depot employee tell us about dye lots until after we brought back the ripped down tiles. I will say that they refunded us the money for the tiles we had to rip down, as well as the SimpleMat we used to put it up. But they cannot compensate for the hours of work, nor the frustration that occurred from having to do this.
We do think the tile looks great in our kitchen, just watch out for these two issues!

When you grout this it gets in the metal tiles and is a nightmare to clean

The tile is absolutely beautiful.... Nice thick glass! The copper tiles add so much warmth and the translucent tiles add brightness. I had ordered this on line after seeing it in the stor. It arrived promptly and in excellent condition.

I used the Manhattan Blend Glass tile as a 3 inch border around my bathroom as well as medallions around the tub area. I used the Gold Chalise porcelain tile from Home Depot as well. My daughter thought the Manhattan tile would be too modern looking for my old world bath design but I think it adds a lot to it. You can decide for yourself in the pictures. 4 pieces total that have the bronze band did come off. I didn't bother glueing it back on as there were plenty of other banded pieces. I love the colors.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Crooked tiles in the field and buy a roll of blue painters tape
Very pretty tile, but when I got it out of the box I noticed some corner tiles didn't have even spacing around them - looked like the box had been stored standing on end.
No huge deal, but then I started running into crooked tiles in the field of the mosaic. Not frequently - but 8 or 10 in 30 sheets. Wound up cutting these out and installing them individually when piecing around outlets.
You also can't cut the sheet in half without cutting tiles - the sheet is 11 tiles x 11 tiles.
As for grouting the tiles, take the time to put a piece of blue painters tape over each of the "framed" tiles. Then when you're done you won't have to pick the grout out of the frame.
Again, pretty - but a pain and the crooked tiles left a bad taste.
I'd recommend it with the caveats above.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ddavejb Beautiful tile! Just the update our kitchen needed.
I just finished our new backsplash using this tile. Excellent quality, great combination of color and textures, and easy installation. All that and our kitchen looks fresh and interesting again. What more could one ask for?

I used these mosaic tiles around my bathroom mirror and I love it! The only thing bad I have to say is that the tile with the frame comes off, so I super glue it on some of them. But my mirror looks awesome!
