Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adams33 Cheap outdoor tile
I wanted to cover an old walkway, not dig it up. This was a cheap, nice looking way to vastly improve the look and safety of my walk. Some tiles were very brittle, and came apart in my hand. Over all a good deal.

We wanted to give our indoor patio an outdoor feel. We chose this floor tile because of its rustic uneven setup and for the variety in colors. You will get a bit more gray tiles. Best solution is to buy a few more boxes. Lay out your tiles prior to setting them to get an idea how you want the tile patterns to look. Some tiles are fragile when handling and breaks easy. I learned to hold each with two hands to avoid that issue.
Once laid on the floor the tiles gave us the desired look which we wanted. We are very happy with the results. We also decided to use the patio as an office. This definitely added a great visual difference from the brown carpet that was here before and is a great opening statement when coming into our home from the front door.

The color mix is nice, but there is a large percentage of gray tiles. Since they were so cheap, I bought 3 additional boxes of 10, and cherry picked the best ones for our application. In our 6 boxes, we only got a couple that were truly "gold", and a few solid reddish ones. Most were gray with color highlights. In the end, since we were able to cherry pick the best ones, the mix is nice, not too gray.
Just something to keep in mind, buy a lot more than you need. Also, there were a lot that had been broken, and reglued, but since the finish is "rough", it was not a problem.
Lastly, some tiles were literally twice as thick as others, so it makes it a bit more tricky to install...having to thicken the mortar layers on some, and getting an even, level surface.
Overall, these tiles are very nice, just be sure to buy extra.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mm1k3 Beautiful slate
Slate was tough to work with for a first time tiler (pieces varying in size). That being said, love the way my kitchen and entry way turned out! I would recommend purchasing at least 15% extra tile because you will receive some broken ones. Using larger grout lines will help mask for the variation in tile size. Also, don't forget to seal the slate before grouting!

It was love at first sight when I saw the varying gold, red, beige, and rust tones running through the Three Rivers Gold slate! Unfortunately the love was not returned to me or my contractor. As stated by others the slates varied in thickness. Knowing this, I told the contractor to set aside "bad" slates and I would buy more (at the store price of $1.48/slate I couldn't lose right? Wrong.) In addition to thickness variation some of the slates are flaking. Most of the 160 slates I bought varied in thickness from about 3/16" to 6/16" and some that much within a slate itself. Unfortunately my contractor rejected too few slates and even proceeded to try to grout 6/16" sides next to 3/16" sides in spots. :o He rushed the job to finish for Thanksgiving. The result is uneven spots from slate to slate which have caused my husband and me to trip at least once each and WE KNEW about the high spots! The contractor starts back today and has already committed to address 2 terribly uneven spots. I love the varying gold, red, beige, and rust tones running through the Three Rivers Gold slate! My regret is not holding out for a better quality slate of this type and not communicating better with my contractor.

I would suggest buying at least 10-15% more than you need. About five percent are broken and ten percent are completely worthless. Thickness varies from 1/4" to 5/8" depending. My bath looks great I love it but had to sort through 33 cases if tiles. Sealing/clear is a must! Also must seal before grout.
