Thought it would be a great replacement carpet for our game room, big problem in that some of the tiles were not square. Do not believe the 24 x 24 advertisement, all the carpet tiles were off by 1/4 to 1/2 inch. You must measure each carpet square both ways from each box and sort multiple boxes to achieve any kind of consistency during installation.
I had multiple boxes that had the protective backing either pealed back or was cut short on one side to expose the adhesive which had very little to no adhesive feel.
Knowing the measurement problem, you must take the time prior to installing to sort like sized squares to achieve a decent looking floor, none of the carpet tiles are actually 24 x 24.
Color seemed to be consistent among the boxes, adhesive seemed to be good when not exposed in the box. I should have paid more attention to the reviews about this carpet tile, other tiles had good reviews.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MadScientist It's a nice idea, with a flawed execution...
This would have gotten four stars...had the adhesive actually STUCK to my floors. Cleaned them (vacuumed them, even...) and the stuff hit-or-miss adheres to the concrete floor. Get it placed right, the seams pretty much vanish. Looks good for a quickie- but the floor tiles pop up under many of the circumstances. Would've liked to have known this stuff had the problem before buying. I strongly suspect double sided carpet tape or some of the trowel-down pressure sensitive adhesive would fix the problem. Plan for that if you intend on using this. If they could fix the adhesive issues...it'd be a four-star win.

This carpet tile was used in a bedroom in a lake cottage. It should work out fine because it won't be worn quickly with everyday use. I think with everyday use, it would wear. It feels nice with the loop texture and the padding. The seams do show somewhat, but that isn't an issue for our use. It didn't feel as sticky on the back as I thought it should, but once down it stuck well. I think the more pressure is put on the carpet, the better the stick over time. It was a great product for our need. Some of the tiles were about 1/4 to 1/2 inch shorter. It all came out fine in the end. You do need something really sharp to cut it. We found that if you placed it where you wanted it, measured and turned it over to cut through the spongy pad first, it cut easier. We also left the paper on until it was cut. That worked for us.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Easy Installation! Bad product.
Cut with a square and box knife.
Installation is simple.. If the cons are not involved.
Not enough / or sticky enough glue.
Sheets vary by up to a half an inch in either direction.
packaging allows tiles to shift in the box causing them to fold over and / or remove plastic off the back.
If I was putting these in my kids room or something I would recommend them. Because the carpets only going to last a year anyways. Any other area where you want it to look clean and not see the seams, no way!
Just put down 2500 ft/sq. of this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Poor Quality Control
When we unboxed our shipment of tiles we were going to use for our home we found they were not all the same color (even though all the boxes were labeled as Zen Afterglow). These were either put in he incorrect boxes or when they produce them the appearance is altered between runs. Almost half of our delivery was clearly a different color than the rest of the shipment. I would not recommend as you can not guarantee color consistency across boxes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gmku Worst carpet tile ever!!!! Do not buy unless you have money to throw away...
I would never recommend these carpet tiles, we put them in our bedroom which is low traffic and they have come apart and come up from the floor and are just awful. And even if you follow the arrows on them the nap on the carpet doesn't go the same way. Save your money,, do NOT buy!! It was a waste of not only $$ but a complete waste of a lot of time.

This carpet looks and feels good. Also the installation was really easy. The seams are visble but overall great value for money.
