Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John As easy to install as described
I installed these tiles in a 9 x 9 washroom on a slab foundation. The floor was not completely smooth, but the tiles went in very easily due to the underlayment. I did purchase a dead blow hammer as recommended, which made the job very, very easy. Cutting to size with a sheet rock knife (around a water heater) was harder than I thought, but the use of a scroll saw made it easy. The difference in the feel of the floor when you walk in the room is noticeable, and clean-up (I previously had an outdoor carpet in place) is very easy with a simple sweep of the broom. A bit pricier than other flooring material, but well worth it - I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tibbo Very durable and easy to install
The interlocking surfaces make installing this product a cinch. I highly suggest a table or circular saw with a fine tooth blade to make a multitude of straight and slightly angled cuts. A utility knife works great for small and intricate cuts. I had to make an access hole for a drain in the laundry room and a jig saw equipped with a fine tooth blade cut like butter. Using larger tooth (wood cutting) blades would have chipped the finished veneer of the product. The integrated rubber underlayment provides comfort and warmth as opposed to tile.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fixedit4sure Works in damp basement.
I purchased & installed these tiles in a damp basement that I recently renovated. Installed a french drain going into a sump pump, which took care of 99% of moisture issue. I then installed these tiles on the original concrete floor. The old floor is not perfectly flat and this tile conformed to the imperfections nicely. I did have edges pop up for the first week, but now it seems to be staying put. Installation was a bit of a pain but overall would recommend this tile for damp locations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ZombieMan Looks like real tile
Installed these tiles in my kitchen 5 years ago. Overall it's holding up quite well, is easy to clean, and still looks great. The main issue is that some of the tiles around the edges of the kitchen and near the sink are prone to shift. I've pried up a few, cleaned the concrete, and put down new tiles, but they still shift. If not for this I would give these tiles a 5 across the board.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kazy Product looks good when down on floor and stays there.
It looks good when down, but doesnt stay there. They keep poping up here and there. So every once and awhile i have to hammer them back down.Some were a bit smaller then others and made for a rough time fitting them. There is a black edge, on some of the tiles, that has to be cut off or it will show. Kinda spendy for this to be happening. Easy to clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Otselic I was some what disappointed with the product.
The ordering process and the delivery I would have to give an excellent mark. There was a learning curve with the installation. Once I got comfortable with the product the process went better but there seemed to be some inconsistencies in the product. Most of the joints would disappear but others would remain very visible. When the light is on the floor the concealed locking tabs show through the product. The product feels nice underfoot and is quite pleasant to the eye. I guess the pro's outweigh the cons, I have purchased it for two other rooms that connect to the initial project . I guess I will have to wait for the test of time to judge my overall satisfaction with the product. Knowing what I have learned, I would probably choose a different product. If your expectations on appearance are not too high I guess I would recommend it. For me,I think I will choose a different product for the replacement but a dirt nap will probably make that decision irrelevant!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Excellent product for "DIY-ers".
Product is very well made, quality floor tiles. I bought these because I wanted something very simple, but great quality, to put down in my utility room. They were easy to cut (where necessary) with a handheld electric jigsaw and went down very simple without any hassle. No adhesive no nothing. The interlocking system is great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Recommend Reading Directions Prior To Installation
Kazy, I'm concerned that you may not have followed the directions properly based on your comments. The black edge you mentioned doesn't show when properly placed...it's the interlocking system. If you cut or removed that, it may be the reason your tiles keep "popping" up.
