Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rsqdivr not 4' wide installed as instructed, and too many surface defects
for nearly $30/sheet, you'd think it would be a better product or that you'd have choice of a better one. I needed to use this for the flooring (subfloor) in my shed. I don't intend to floor over it but looks like I'll have no choice. First, less than 50% of the sheets I pulled were free "enough" of surface defects to use. Second, the short edges are indeed 8' apart, but the measurement from the tip of the tongue to the groove edge is just 4'. That means if you put the tongue ANY bit inside the neighboring groove (as designed), it will fall short of 4'. Therefore, you will run short of your sheathing/flooring calculation. I had to scab my 20' building with about a 2" rip just to finish it off and that was with pretty generous 1/4" gaps on the T&G edges. Short edges (4') are typical. 8' edges aren't. Just be aware. Straight edge sand ply fits as you expect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sibco Decent decking if handled with care
I used this decking for a shed floor. I found it noteworthy, yet not problematic, that this decking only has the tongue and groove on the 96" edges, so the 48" edges should be adequately supported and backed to provide fastening surfaces for adjoining sheets. Though I'm not an admirer of OSB products in general, these deck sheets were sturdy and had good dimensional tolerances for the price. The black parallel markings are rough guides only, and should not be relied upon as accurate indicators of 16" and 24" centers.
Unfortunately, this product is very susceptible to handling abuse, and broken corners and edges easily result from incompetent forklift drivers at the store. This is by no means a product failure, but sadly, my decking arrived at my jobsite looking like it was trampled by angry elephants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocknroll Barn floor
I had a dirt floor in my barn, had to be converted to a shop. Framed up 2X4's, 12" on center for the floor base, leveled it with gravel and block, and put this T&G sheeting on top of it. Been down for 3 years now and not a single problem! Solid as a rock, takes all kinds of abuse and can hold a tremendous amount of weight without flex or bow. Extremely happy with it! For 16$ a sheet you seriously cannot go wrong!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GFactor No Problems at All
I did not experience any of the issues that several other reviewers listed. I did pick up the product in the store, so I was able to ensure each piece was in good condition. They snapped together with a slight tap from a hammer (actually the tap was on a 2x4 that was against the OSB).
I placed 4 sheets into the attic above my garage, but had to rip each one in half to fit through my access door. I then screwed the OSB into each joist which created a really solid surface. This will also help prevent the drywall from having issues from the joists moving when walking on the OSB.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsheep Outstanding Flooring for Anything!
This stuff is amazing! It's sturdy & heavy with the bonus of waterproof adhesives when made, made it a perfect choice for my Shed. No problems with the tongue & groove... I just used a block of 2x4 & a small 4lb hammer to tap the panel to a tight fit. Decided to weather proof the floor with Henry 587 Dura-brite White Elastomeric roof coating... Just because I knew I wouldn't get the shed all done before it rained on me... It has held up very well over the past 4 months of construction. I liked the marking on the OSB made it easier to square up & install correctly!

This OSB was exactly what I expected. It was good quality with little to no damage in handling.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pnolan123 Tongues and Grooves do not fit together properly, seemed bowed
Overall a decent product, with consistent dimensions, but the tongues and grooves do not fit together properly. They would make full contact at both ends, and leave a gap in the middle on every piece.

Yes you can use this kind of wood for sub-floor for ceramic tiles.
