Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeanW Easy to Use
Product was very easy to use, for someone who's never done this before. It would be nice if the adhesive part was already folded out, but it's all good. They recommend you go an inch up the wall for vapor barrier, but that was a pain when installing the floors. Probably makes sense with a brand new house or when ripping out the old moulding.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger Good moisture protection for you laminate flooring
For me Microban protection is a huge factor as it prevents the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria and also inhibits mold and mildew. In our basement we have issues with moisture that causes slight mildew problem that I no longer have to worry about. How effective it is, only time will tell as a month is too short of a time to tell that. Installation was easy. Thickness is okay and better than standard underlayment or pre-attached underlayment. It's more cost-effective to buy this bigger roll and 630 ft will work for most rooms. Sound protection/ deadening is effective but not great. Overall an above average product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doresoom Great Underlayment
This worked great as underlayment for the laminate floors I just installed in my guest bedroom. I was glad I didn't have to install a separate moisture barrier as well, since the Airguard adds cushion as well as having a waterproof top layer.
The self adhesive overlap was another great feature, and the excess adhesive from the first row doubles as a great snag/puncture repair method. The underlayment was pretty resistant to tearing too. I installed it perpendicular to the flooring, so I was walking on it while installing the rest of the floor, and it did pretty well with standing up to the extra wear. I did scrape through it a few times while I was hitting the tapping block with the mallet, but it's pretty easy to patch anyway.
The red top color and clear bottom color help make it easy to keep the underlayment right side up. Plus it's easier to see tears and holes that need to be repaired in the red top coat.
It's also great for keeping the floor from sounding hollow. While I was picking out laminate, I noticed the underlayment display Home Depot has set up in the same aisle. They had a golf ball you could hit against flooring with different types of underlayment below it. The Airguard was one of the best options, and it was also one of the cheapest that actually made the floor sound solid and not hollow.
The only downside is that you'll get quite a few styrofoam beads scattered about the room as you're cutting it. This was particularly noticeable when I trimmed the excess when I

The Airguard does a good job of dampening the sound from walking on the engineered flooring we laid on top. Very happy with this underlayment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pmikejunot It's ok, nothing special.
This stuff does work, but it's nothing special. It's super thin, even with the little (almost microscopic) styrofoam balls. I haven't noticed any excessive noise as others have noted. Neither have I noticed any sound deadening with this product. And I can only assume that it is an effective vapor barrier...time will tell. My opinion is that this stuff is no better (or worse) than the cheapest foam underlayment at Home Depot. But it cost twice as much! When I do the upstairs of the house with laminate I think I'll use 1/4" cork underlayment. I've read really good reviews on the sound deadening effect of cork with limited, firm cushioning effect.
