Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eeewee Good Tool to Have
This is a good tool for 12" and up tiles in a diagonal pattern It is too big to use with 12" tiles in a straight pattern. Keeping that in mind, it works well for measuring and marking the last row against a wall in a diagonal install. Made from plastic, it feels fairly but not overly sturdy. This is a handy tool to have, but not something I would use very often.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IronAvatar Great tool, but only for larger tile
Be aware that this is designed for the following uses and sizes: 17 in. x 17 in. to 30 in. x 30 in. tile on a straight installation or 12 in. x 12 in. to 20 in. x 20 in. tile on a diagonal installation. I'd definitely like to see a version for smaller tiles, but this was a huge help for the large tiles we used in a diagonal installation for our dining room/sun room. The room was a screened-in porch on a very old house, and way out of square, so this helped us overcome the inconsistencies that brings.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ladylike Size of Tiles and Straight Cuts
This is a good tool, but pay attention to its limitations. Someone had mentioned earlier that the specs said that the tool could be used for 8 x 8 inch tile and larger, but was disappointed because that didn't turn out to be true. Well, the specs online are correct now. It says right there that it's for 17" tile and larger. But did I pay attention to that? No! So don't be a dork like I was, and make that mistake. My tile is 13", so I can't use it. Darn it.
I'd like to see a smaller version at Home Depot.
I wanted to note that if all you are doing is straight cuts to fill in the space up to your wall, you can use another tile in pretty much the same way, of course. You just have to account for the width of the grout lines yourself, manually, when marking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aldone Tip for smaller tiles with this tool
Tip for the folks who bought this tool and have smaller tiles.
1: install feild tiles.
2: place your tiles to be cut one row back of the last full tile .
3. Add the measure of your full tile exp. 6" if you have 6" tiles .
Use the tool just like the video says.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip Working Great for my tile project...
This is the tool I needed! I am having to cut around different size walls and walkways... It's a time saver...
Home Depot had the best price too. I would however go to their website or YouTube to watch their video on how to use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobthebuilder Helped me achieve a great result
I've done a few tile projects before, but this was my first diagonal installation and this thing made it a breeze. Kinda pricy for what it is, but it would have been hard to accomplish the same excellent result without it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheFlagChick Saved me a lot of time!!!
I'm a rehab addict and I have learned that a great tool can save you a bundle of time. I saw this and thought it might be a gimmick, however, after receiving it I called customer service for the company that manufactures the tool and Brett walked me thru the correct way to use it, as I thought I had bought a wrong version of the tool. WOW......not only was their customer service outstanding......but this gadget saved me hours of cuts. I like laying diamond patterns in my tiles so many times I spend a lot of time getting just the right cut for my clients, as I'm VERY meticulous, this tool made me look like a meticulous pro at a fraction of the time!!! Can't live without it. It would be extremely valuable even if you were only tiling one room at home.....time is money and this saves you a bundle.
