Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyDIY Nice product, used similar before, would use again, TIME SAVER!
This product saves time and it great quality. I used it in a walk-in shower, with a glass block wall. You should know that the curb also slopes (I did not know this), so adding a glass block wall was a challenge. You cannot install a glass block wall directly on the floor (not recommended by the manufacturer), so I had to add some mortar to the curb to level it where I installed glass block on about half of the length. Otherwise, this product is great, easy to install and high quality. I was nervous that because it is so light, it might snap or crack after I installed all the weight on top (ceramic tiles, glass blocks, grout), but it held up! My shower drains perfectly and no leaks. I expect my shower to be maintenance free for years.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 4WDVol Tile Redi Shower Pan Review
Overall, I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the Tile Redi shower pan. I expected it to be more durable, but the polyurethane is fairly flimsy. In short, it's light enough that if you were to drop a power tool on it, the tool could puncture it. The edges and corners can be easily damaged too if you're not careful with it.
It was convenient the drain came installed in the pan, but it was not an easy task to connect it to the plumbing through our house foundation. The PVC drain coupling and foundation plumbing didn't quite line up (not Tile Redi's fault) but the PVC drain coupling didn't afford any flexibility. Tile Redi really needs a rubber gasket type connection to allow some flexibility during installation instead of a PVC glue fitting that only allows for about 30 seconds before the glue sets up. Overall, the pan is installed and looks fine but I haven't installed any of the tile yet. We have 2 more bathrooms in our house to renovate and I don't know if I'll order another one of these or not...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mom119 plenty of room in the base
This product really is a solid quality made base. The ease of installation of the mortar for setting purposes is a bit messy and tough to keep on when actually placing the base. Once placed properly though, makes for a very solid base.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenny8675309 Great product
First, this shower base is actually 34 X 60 (the model number states this). I was a little reluctant at first, but this is a great product. It is easy to install, easy to tile and looks great. Yes it is a little pricey but it saves enough installation time that it is well worth it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AKhomeowner good solution overall, needs epoxy for tiling, could be less expensive
Worked fine for me. My contractor used epoxy-based mixture for tiling as one reviewer suggested and it went smooth. I got "flexible" mosaic style tiles, partially because the bottom of the base is not flat (and because these are not so slippery when wet, which is important for the shower floor)
Overall, it is a good practical solution. Can not imagine still why it is $600. Massive plastic, not so complicated shape, nothing more. Oh, well ... I guess it is better than making the shape from scratch with concrete or something like this. Would it be $300-$400, I would give full five stars without hesitation. For its current price of $600 - just my vote for four stars and Average grade for Value

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zacc Good alternate if...
you don't want to build your own pan or pour your floor. Yeah, it's $600, but you know its Tile Redi's fault if it leaks and it's not too bad to install. I would do it again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jcummings Why epoxy instead of thinset?
Surprise! when you open the box you realize that thinset won't stick to it and you must use epoxy. C'mon TileRedi, come up w/ a product that takes thinset. Actually needed more epoxy than was included to finish the curb- cost me $100 and a trip to get it.
