Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GMW Not what the picture looks like.
We purchased this product based on a sample in the store and the picture online. Neither are the same as the actual product. What we received is much lighter in color and and inch and a half wider than the sample in the store or what is depicted in the picture.

This flooring worked out really well. It has a very good finish and is easy to install. I measured the area to be covered at 101 sq ft. So, based on the specification of 20 sq ft per box, I purchased 6 boxes. It turned out that each box contained 22 sq ft and I only needed 5 boxes. I returned the unopened box with no problems. If you use this product, you will need a good rubber mallet and taping block, along with a good pull bar (do NOT buy the flooring installation kit as I did. It is poorly designed and cheaply made. Ger the Roberts Pro pull bar and tapping block instead.)

Now I know most of these reviews are fake. Rejecting more than half of this floor, does not even resemble maple. Home Depot needs to pull this line from their offering of flooring. Take a look at what to expect when you open a carton.

Flooring was easy to install--the first row in the most difficult. Color was just as it appeared on the website. Good product.

Homedepot (Alpena Mich) was great. They installed and did a great job of coordinating everything.t Use furniture pads to protect from scratches. Very high end look.

I bought 1000 sq.ft. online to cover the entire first floor of my home (890 sq.ft.). Two palettes containing 50 boxes arrived a couple of days later. I brought in all 50 boxes and let the wood acclimate for the recommended 3 days. After removing the existing carpeting and tack strips, I began installation, laying down the AirGuard Premium 3-in-1 underlayment first and following up with single rows of hardwood. I must say, it could not have gone much smoother.
I installed all of the flooring on my own, including new the baseboards. Most of the wood was usable, but I would say that a good 2-to-3% of it had a black streak along either the left or right edge of a board, rendering it as scrap. You can see the streaks in one of the pictures I've attached. I'm not sure if this occurs during the machining process, or if I just got a bad batch, but it's something that needs to be addressed by the manufacturer. Not that many boards were warped...even still, I was able to use most of those.
The only other detriment about this flooring that I can think of is that some of the boards do creak...but only a very few. I'm not sure how the changing weather will affect this, but it's not enough to bother me, considering how the overall project turned out.
I get all kinds of compliments on the floor. I absolutely love it. I am now considering doing the second floor of my home with this same product, but I will wait awhile to let my knees recover a little bit. :D

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeriouslyUpgraded Great floors that look just like the online pictures
Great product. Was afraid the floors would be different than online pictures but they were exactly as promised. Installation was easy and they ar beautiful. It was a little costly but once we seen the finished product we thought it was well worth it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paulusatp Easy, beautiful, but....
Product installs easily, looks amazing right after installation. Soft as butter...gauged already after light use, and I just installed it. Don't believe the hardness rating. Do not buy! You will regret it. Spend a little more money for better quality. I'm returning it.
