Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JupiterRich Not furniture grade, but OK for the money.
I hesitate to say I would recommend this. It depends on the project. If you need plywood with a decent finish, this is fine. I wouldn't use it for a furniture type project that may take some abuse. Reason being the veneer is very thin and chips around the edges easily. There are a fair amount of imperfections and patches that are visible too. I used it to make deep roll out kitchen drawers. Had it been a high end kitchen (or any other project that needed a high quality wood), I would have gone to a lumber yard and paid the extra money for a better grade of plywood.

COMPOSED OF SOFTWOODS, ALRIGHT FOR BACK-BOARDING WALLS. WOOD SPLINTERS WHEN CUTTING EVEN WITH PLYWOOD BLADES.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by master1 buyer beware
Buyer beware this product witch I have used several times in the last year has gone down in quality. When first started using was a high quality 7 ply very stable product with no voids. I noticed a couple of months ago they had reduced it to only 5 layers not as stable as before but little or no voids. My most recent purchase was not very stable trying to warp and flex and had considerable voids and price had increased. 6 months ago I would have given this product a 5 star rating but today only a 2

I was looking for a 1/2 thick plywood, and this was the best available. I would've gone with a Maple variety, but only 3/4 were available.
This item is too soft, almost fiber like top layer which at some points has been sanded down to the next layer.
When cutting with a 36 tooth with masking tape and a slow feed rate it can be cut without splintering.
When screwing with a pocket screw, I turned through it a couple of times because it was so soft.
I did get some great quality 2 x 4 feet 1/2 thick plywood, but it might have been scrap from larger pieces of higher quality plywood, and I couldn't find it in the store.
My wish is for Home Depot to carry at least one variety of furniture grade plywood for each of the usual thickness, 1, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Picktool Sande Ply... it depends
Well... it isnt that bad as others are saying. What I have seen is
that it cuts great with a track saw. Not a cheap $39 B&D circular saw
or PC jigsaw. Jig saw use? Scribe the line to prevent splinters, it works.
Investing in a track saw will yield years of clean & straight cuts.
Now for the string inside, whats up with that? I've seen black
powder come out a couple times. Once I seen sparks, so something
metal was inside.
Just use this stuff for the last resort. As someone posted using it for wall
support or substitute for mdf. You get what you pay for, Sande "caveat emptor" plywood.
Matters fact, im going to get some sheets later for a

This plywood is the worst. I cut into it and found the veneers had delaminated. The manufacture is not applying enough glue to get the veneers to stick to each other.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HMAN66 WORKS WELL F YOU'RE CAREFUL
I was leery of this product after reading reviews but I had good luck with the sheet I purchased. I used it to make six drawers; sides, backs and front panels to attach to hardwood drawer fronts. I found two very small voids that can be easily filled, no nasty odors and no machining problems. All work was done with a table saw using a 60 tooth blade and a standard dado.
The "A" side was free of blemishes and the filler plys cut so cleanly that only a bit of sanding was needed. I would not use this product for a project requiring stained and varnished finish but it's fine for painted work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bob Very, Very Bad, Expensive Product. I must like pain.
Product has about 1/32 veneer. It chips easily even when cut with 60T blade.
One of my boards also developed blisters on the veneer. The veneer bubbled away from inner ply probably because of hideous manufacturing processes. One of the "blisters" was 6 inches long by 1-2 inches wide.
There were also 3-4 ridge lines along the 8 foot length of the board where the slices of veneer butt up against each other.
This is a total fail. I was expecting some chipping, not a board that is much worse than standard plywood sheathing.
I didn't want MDF and bought this to have a smoother finish. Used this for one wall in basement. Did not want drywall. Neede 1/2" plywood otherwise I would have bought 3/4 with thicker veneer.
This is so, so, bad. Feel like an idiot for buying this.
This is not even worth $5 IMO.
