I wrote an earlier review in May of 2015 - I cannot find out how to edit the original review so here is an update! My new photographs show the fading and changing of colors over a 5 month period. Rugs and a bed frame blocked the sunlight and look at the difference in color on the floorboards!!!!
YOU need to be aware of this fade factor. The floor still looks beautiful and I am hoping by removing the rugs and shifting the furniture the wood colors will catch up to each other and the lines will fade!!!!!

Replaced original 1940's flooring with this maple flooring. It has added comfort, light and value to the apartment. Along with Kraftmaid cabinetry there is now a delightful, and well designed layout! All designing credit goes to Ms Moakley at the Catskill, NY Home Depot #6176.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Monica Three different board widths
These floors are beautiful but a headache to install. Some are exactly 3 1/4 but some are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller. It's not an installation issue, I measured the boards and the thickness is not the same. Very frustrating as you lay in a board and there's a big gap. most of the boards were the same, but having to measure all of them and keep them in different piles by width and length was a pain. There were also a fair number of boards that were unusable. I think the price is much to high for these floors. I bought them when they were in stock at the stores for much less. Also keep in mind that they yellow with age. I still like the color but not as much as when I first put them in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CupKrrr A bad experience
For our relatively dark room we wanted to install a hardwood floor and decided to choose a bright wood and picked Vintage Maple Natural. To plan this project and how your environment should look like you depend on the examples exposed in the shop. There we saw several examples matching exactly our expectations how the floor should look like. The wood was delivered and three days later was supposed to be built in. More or less by chance I opened one box and picked a plank. What I saw had only a few square inches of bright maple natural. The rest of the plank was more or less dark brown. So we opened another box, took out all planks and saw that almost half of the planks were dark and with many stains and knots. Very poor quality! This was not the floor we wanted in our living and dining room. We tried to get rid of it.We were able to cancel this order, but this was a very bad experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dapper Would not use!
We received the wood and let it acclimate for almost six weeks. I ordered extra material just to be safe! Way too high of a percentage of short pieces is my first complaint. My installer who is VERY GOOD said; "this was the third worst wood floor he had ever installed!" The second complaint is that a good portion of the material was a different thickness and could not be used. The overall quality in my opinion from this manufacturer is not good and I would not recommend this product to anyone! By they way, this is my first negative review and just about anything so that should tell you how poorly I rate the material. I suggest trying another manufacturer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rpardee So far it's great!
The product as shipped is actually more varied than the sample they had in the store. The latter was pretty uniformly blonde-colored. But the flooring, when it came, was a variety of colors, including the blonde we expected, but ranging into some very nice reds. The contractor was sure to mix up the colors and we are really pleased with the result.
My one worry (and this is no reflection on the product--just our judgment in installing it) is how well it will stand up to our 2 100+ lb dogs (and their claws). I expect some scratching, but hopefully it won't be too bad. I'll update in a couple months when that is more clear.
