Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Beautiful finish, love this floor
I bought this flooring when it was on clearance at my local Home Depot for about $1/SQFT and I got a steal of a deal! The kitchen, dining room, and hallways of my condo were already in a light maple-colored laminate and I couldn't find that Pergo product or a product that matched it well enough to do the living room so I decided to go contrasting when I found the Williams Cherry by Pergo on the clearance rack. Now that it's in, I kind of wish I had pulled out the old maple laminate in at least the dining room and carried the cherry into that space, too, but the two laminates look nice enough next to each other that I'm still happy with the outcome.
Self-installation was easy; the only problems I had were mostly my own fault. The best installation tip I can give is to make sure the pull bar is against the floor before you pound the laminate pieces together. Mine would occasionally skip up onto the interlocking edge so that when I pounded on the pull bar it would end up chipping the surface of the laminate and I would have to redo that piece. I remedied this by putting the pull bar against the floor, sliding it up to the side of the laminate piece and then having someone stand on the pull bar with just enough pressure to make sure it maintained contact with the subfloor/underlayment while I pounded pieces into place. After that method was instituted install when like a breeze and the flooring didn't chip.
The only other issue I ran into was that I would open a box and find that the entire box had chipped corners, or damaged interlocking edges. I was doing a large enough area and enough small, fiddly areas (closets), and had enough overage that it wasn't a huge problem and I could use those as my edge or cut pieces or hide them in closets where I wasn't as concerned about having chips in the floor. Just make sure to examine each piece of laminate before you lay it and pound it together.
Love this floor. I would recommend it to anyone.

We got this on clearance, they had just enough for our entry way. We had never installed this kind of flooring before and it was "a snap" literally. What an easy project with such a beautiful outcome. The snap in feature of making the floating floor I was a bit skeptical of but it worked like a champ and was FAST and easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lz61 Great value, but quality control issues
Very inexpensive, and it looks great when installed. Nearly 1 board in every box had surface laminate imperfections or damage to the connector. Since this is a special order, I recommend requesting one or two extra boxes to replace the bad boards. Return each box worth of unused boards for a refund after construction.

We need to change our vinyl flooring to a laminate flooring and this product is great choice and not regretting a bit. So far not a single problem. It's shiny and manageable. I will very much recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeTheMechanic Great Look..Great Price..Easy to install
Great look for the price you cant possibly go wrong also Pergo is one of the best in the business.
Install was easy once you get the feel you dont need to hit them with a mallet your hands are enough.
Just pay attention when you buy them there is no bottom to the box so choose good boxes I only had one bad plank out of 5 boxes.
like I said once you get the hang of it its smooth sailing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheepsblood Black Friday Deal
I bought the Pergo Washington Cherry on a Black Friday deal at my local Home Depot and installed it a few weeks later. I don't agree with a previous review about it being cheaply made or poor locking edges.
I have installed several different brands of these snap together flooring and Pergo defiantly had a great locking mechanism.
Also the bottom had a smooth protective layer and each entire piece is covered in a waxy protectant which easily wipes off.
I had no issues with this product and it's beauty is superb.
I am actually buying more of this exact product in 2 weeks from this post to do another room. So if your looking for a great look and quality, this is it.

I've had this flooring for less than a year and it's completely trashed and it cost me thousands upon thousands of dollars. If it gets wet AT ALL, I mean, AT ALL, it warps horribly. If you spill something it will be warped in SECONDS, by the time you come back with a paper towel it's already ruined because it's basically made of pressed paper and sawdust. Don't plan on ever mopping it, I have to clean it on my hands and knees so that I can be careful not to get any water in the seams for even a fraction of second, otherwise it will warp. Sometimes I can afford to hire a cleaning lady to do it for me, sometimes not, if I have to clean it myself it takes about four hours. It also scratches much more easily than you would think, like, sliding a chair out to sit down. They market this as kid/pet tough, bad marketing strategy!
