Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatL Classy black tiles in bath!
This looked amazing in a bathroom remodel we did ! In addition to the 12x24 US Ceramic Avila tile for the floor and baseboard, this look was spectacular!

I absolutely love this backsplash! Looks really amazing in my newly renovated modern home. It was a little bit of a pain to install because the tiles were glued to the mesh crooked. Once it's up on the wall we took a razor blade to cut the mesh where adjusting needed to be made. Worth the trouble though. Looks really good with a slate gray grout!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TileSearcher 3 different finishes so be AWARE
I needed a 4" black border on my bathroom wall and I wanted it to be a mosaic. Mosaics that I found were marble or granite and very costly. The glass mosaics were too modern for the decor of the room so I decided to try these as I was told this was the only black porcelain mosaic around. Well, it's not really all black - there are three different finishes...matte, glossy, iridescent...the matte looks like a dark gray. The glossy is glossy and the iridescent looks like glass. At this price point per sheet, it is half the price of the glass mosaics I have found and 1/4 the price of the marble I was about to purchase. Just be aware of the 3 different finishes and if you are considering glass, this may be an inexpensive option for you. Also, it is sold by the sheet so you can get exactly what you need and not have to commit to an entire case.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CT14 Beautiful and apparently very well made tile.
I used this tile as a feature strip in the backsplash for my kitchen. A friend installed it, and he said it was easy to work with. I like that it's not entirely black--the hints of dark blue and the varying sheens are more interesting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYerMOM Great value in mosaic tiles. Watch out when grouting...
These really are an inexpensive option if you are looking for mosaic tiles, especially for a small area. It's great that you can buy them one-at-a-time. (I only needed five sheets to cover my kitchen backsplash, which is only 7 little tiles high.)
As the earlier reviewer commented, these tiles are NOT uniformly glossy. About 1/3 are a dull matte finish, almost a slate gray. You need to tool the tiles carefully...the grout tends to visually join the matte tiles and make pairs/groups of them appear as one irregular tile. Also, since black grout dries to the same dark gray color as the matte tiles, be sure to remove all the extra grout promptly...I was a bit slow in one section and have found that the grout has left marks on the matte tiles.
I found conflicting advice online as to whether to back-butter mosaic tiles or not. I did with my first sheet and found that it provided WAY too much adhesive. It oozed through the webbing and was a job to clean up. Just apply the adhesive to the wall.
My backsplash looks great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by housewifehandyman Looks great - has silver mixed with flat black and shiny black
Surface must be very flat and smooth before you put tile adhesive down, and count on needing more grout than usual because the tiles are really tiny, but overall nice looking.
