Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by diyOrDie looks nice, took some practice to install nicely.
I used this for bathrooms and picked it primarily for its appearance which was a good match to the laminate used in adjacent rooms. There was enough variety in appearance to allow for artistic placement.
Installing was in some ways easier than laminate and in someways harder. It doesn't make a definitive snap most times so you have to look closely to see if it is fully seated. I had to connect a row together and then connect that row to preceding rows, which requires more hands after about 3 pieces (9 feet).
On the other hand I was able to jiggle planks to get them to seat instead of banging them into place with a piece of scrap protecting the edge (although I did that as well for a while).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jorgenbot Worst flooring ever!
I would NEVER buy this flooring again. Had it for less then a year and already chipped and breaking. I thought it was on the seams, but it's not. Worst money I ever spend. Thinking of pulling it all up and doing real wood. Sickening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by animallover love this
installation was easy but harder than laminate because the planks are bendy not hard so its a little harder to snap together. I have a house full of animals and kids so far so good it wipes right up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lavasusan Too hard to install cleanly - do not recommend
This looks pretty good for vinyl planks, but was a bear to install. The instructions make it seem as though you just have to concern yourself with engaging the long side. This is incorrect. The short end also need to be maneuvered together, and trying to do that to two sides simultaneously is hard, hard work. I spent nearly two full days on one 100 sq foot room, which is ridiculous. I ripped apart some sections two, three, even four times trying to get the end to lay flat (no bulging) and no gapping. Perhaps the issue is just that the planks are imprecisely cut and should have been able to just have the ends snap in, but in reality, it just is too time-consuming. I have installed vinyl tile, and I would gladly do that again over these vinyl interlock planks. I will never buy them again.
If you are considering these, please do yourself a favor and go into the store and try to engage four planks in a 2-plank 2-row formation. You will have no problem with attaching the two planks in the first row as you just have to attached short end to short end. You will have no problem with plank 3, the first plank in row two, as you will just have to attach long end to long end. You will struggle with plank 4 as you will need to engage both the long and short ends. You will either have a slight bulge or a gap. Now consider that almost all of your floor will consist of "plank 4" type of simultaneous connections, and decide if you want that much grief.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Goodness Looks great
This flooring looks great but was more difficult to install than others. Chose this type because it is waterproof and has a lifetime residential warranty. It has been installed less than a week so I cannot comment on how well it will hold up. It has been very easy to clean.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy dents!
This is awful! It does dent. Claims that is will not dent. It does and they will NOT give you back your money. Multiple dents from just my kitchen table. Its going to be really bad once I put the chairs around it. A HUGE waste of money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Durango44 Very disappointed
We had this product installed by licensed contractor's and despite their best efforts wound up with an expensive floor who's flaws are noticed by most visitors.
Pro: It's a very good looking floor and we're pleased with that.
Con: 1. Very difficult to work with and takes a lot of time costing $$$$ if paying installers by the hour.
2. Scratches easily(think active, good size dogs).
3. Sub-flooring must be perfectly smooth and level otherwise any flaws show thru as bumps, etc.
4. Brittle and cracks easily during installation if too much force is applied when trying to close gaps at
joints. We had to discard approximately two boxes worth of planks that didn't survive the
installation process. We also returned three boxes to the as they were damaged from shipping
yet still in sealed boxes.
5. Biggest and most noticeable issue is that the end joints tend to curve up making the floor look
wavy. You don't feel it when walking on it but very obvious from appearance standpoint. We didn't
initially notice it during installation until a neighbor stopped by and asked why the planks joints
looked like they were pointed up.
