Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lumpy and Noisy I'm heading to HD right now to talk about my recent installation. The Nike padding is lumpy feeling. In one spot in a traffic area, there is a hard lump which feels like a rock under a shoe. The installer came back, pulled up the carpet, and showed me the firm, dime sized, full thickness piece he removed, which was hard as a rock. Much to my surprise, there is still a lump. Not sure if he removed a different lump or what. Also, in a prominent living room spot is a place which croaks like a frog. I gave it a week hoping it would resolve but it's still very loud. I can squeak it 10 times and there's no change in the sound. There are smaller squeak spots elsewhere. Overall, it feels uneven and slightly lumpy. I'm not very happy with it...maybe I got a bad roll(?) April 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality carpet, but want better delivery options. The carpet is of very good quality. I installed carpet in the 70's and 80's professionally, and the backing is a good bit more brittle than I remember it. The backing seems like a synthetic composite rather than the old fashioned (and tougher/more pliable) jute, but overall it installed well, looks just, is just like the sample, and feels great. My family is thrilled. However the obligation of picking it up and hauling it to my house myself was onerous. I would have paid ~$100 to have it brought the 9 miles from the local Home Depot to my home. HD should re-think the delivery options. April 8, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy with the nike pad I just had this installed with sof tspring carpet. It's not soft or cushioning to walk on. I spent a lot of money for this carpet and I'm very disappointed in the pad. April 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent pad We purchased this pad a year ago to go under new carpet. I had it laid by a professional installer who lightly glued the center portions and tacked it to the parameter tack strip. I don't know if they have changed the manufacturing components since then, but it is noiseless and comfortable to walk on. I would not be looking at replacing it now except that we had a massive flood from the unit above forcing us to replace one small section of the pad due to mousture. December 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Update of my 4/10 review This is an update of my earlier review. I did not see a way to edit the earlier review. I spoke to the store and they agreed that they installed the wrong pad. They offered to replace the pad with the one that compared to the one I purchased. They installed the Prime Comfort 1/2 inch pad. It made all the difference in the world. The carpet now has a plush, rich feel. You would swear that it is a different, more expensive carpet! When the installer showed up to replace the pad, he took one step onto the old carpet/pad and immediately stopped. He looked at me and said "There is something wrong with this pad.". Literally - one step. When we pulled up the carpet, we found big chunks of rock hard rubber in the old pad. It looked like chunks of old tires. So just save yourself grief and but the more expensive Prime Comfort pad to begin with and make sure that they install what you order. I want to commend Home Depot for their customer service. They have been absolutely great through the entire process. Sure there were issues, but they really did everything that they could possibly do to resolve them. I recommend Home Depot to everyone because of their great service. May 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing & super soft! I have had this pad in my house for six months. I waited to review so I could give a more accurate review. I love his carpet pad. I have no creaking, croaking or other sounds. My carpet is soft and I lay on the floor to watch tv and play video games all the time. I did purchase very nice carpet also so I am not sure if that makes a difference, but I am telling you this stuff is amazing. I can walk barefoot and it springy and fluffy like. I have four teenagers and this carpet pad is soft and is great! I would absolutely purchase it again! July 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cracks under your feet We purchased new carpet and padding about a year ago. This padding seemed like a fair deal at the time. Since the initial installation we have heard a crackling noise. I thought this would go away after some time but unfortunately I think it has only become worse. I would not recommend this product and am disappointed that we had purchased it. February 18, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crackling Noise...Not very happy. We got new carpet and padding when we bought our house two years ago. A few months ago I noticed a crunchy plastic bag noise under my feet in the carpet of my bedroom. We upgrade our padding to the Nike thinking this was an investment since the carpet we purchased was an upgrade as well. I filed a complaint and inspectors came out to "listen" to the carpet. I am hoping that they write the report and we can fix this. I don't appreciate upgrading and spending more money on carpet that sounds like its falling apart. It is so touchy that even my two cats walk into the room and I can hear the plastic bag noise! April 18, 2014
