Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bumpers nice shower pan, but...
very nice pan with the drain integrated into it. first time using this brand. I am a professional remodeler. I have done hundreds of bathrooms from standard to handicap accessible. the issues I had with this pain are: the splashguard is thicker than 1/2 hardi-backer, making the bottom row of tile difficult to install properly. and the epoxy adhesive was difficult to work with, i.e. runny, etc. I followed the directions as far as the type of trowel and still ended up with too much adhesive on the pan, causing it to push out above the tile. wiping it only smeared it. after it cured, I couldn't scrap it out of the joints like you can with thin set or other adhesives. there are also no instructions for cleaning up tools etc.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by thehousedoctor Not as easy as it looks
Well, so far it looks good installed, BUT not so easy to install. Not for the average person to install. The premise is excellent since the other alternatives are not as long lasting. In other words, it should never fail. The epoxy required for the installation of tiles is almost impossible to work with, it dries extremely quickly. No room for error if your meticulous. You are also limited in your tile choice, can't use tile larger than 2x2 due to the contours in the pan.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DesertFamily not for installation on concrete floor
I purchased this product after watching the ease of use installation video. I installed it on a concrete floor with a fixed drain that I put in place after watching the video and installed following their instuctions. The instructions are great for floors where you can go underneath and do the plumbing after installation but not on a fixed concrete surface.
If you are installing it on a fixed concrete type floor without access to the plumbing beneath it, then beware! Even their technical support department didn't really have answers. Glue dries in about a minute and they advised me to let it (the tileready) settle into position after placing it on the mortor bed. Unfortunately, the glue dictates the installation process.
I may have to tear it back up and throw it away because they didn't tell me in advance to add an additional 1/2 inch of length to the drain.
