Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VermontGraybeard Rugged, nice-looking floor
The Flooring Specialist at Home Depot got my attention when she beat on the floor sample with a closed razor-knife. She tried hard to scratch and gouge it, but there wasn't a mark on the flooring.
OK, tell me more...
This stuff isn't cheap, but my wife & I were able to install it ourselves, so we saved on the labor. Note: unless you have a square room with few cutouts, this will take some patience, and some talent - and tools. Our installation went from the kitchen into the dinette, down a hallway-like pantry and into the laundry room. Add to that the angular peninsula (25°), and it took some time to make it work.
Straight cuts can be made with a sharp razor-knife (have plenty of extra blades) and a metal straight-edge: score and snap. It's tough stuff, so I used a pair of sheet-metal type Vise-Grips to hold short pieces that needed to be snapped off.
Cutouts for air vents and around door jams & casings can be made with a jigsaw - again, have extra blades, this stuff eats them up.
But these tiles lock together nicely. We alternated them in a brick-like pattern which helps keep the rows straight, and provides a nice look. It also has a nice feel under foot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jill Beautiful tile, we love the look of it.
Looks beautiful in our basement, very little prep work to instal. Already has a backing on it. Easy to order on the internet, came very quickly after we ordered it. We love this tile, the look and comfort.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Overall pretty good.
Overall the product turned out to be pretty good. Much harder to install than lead to believe. Cuts and fittings have to be precise or gaps are created. Score and snap was harder than expected. Short cuts require pliers to snap.
I ordered three cartons of tan, hoping I only would need two for my project. Thankfully, I only needed two because the third carton contained white. It would have been a major pain if I had needed any tiles from the third carton as I would have had to return the white and order another tan which would have come from a different run. Color could have been an issue. The instructions recommend spacers for installation but none are included.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Slats Very dissapointed
If you have a wide open room with four straight walls this floor would probably work fine. If you have numerous cuts and jogs to deal with do not buy this floor. The side of the room that you finish up on is extremely difficult to lock pieces together. I am sorry for buying this floor and would never buy one again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lynnb Looks great, but it's not easy!
My husband & I (average do-it-yourselfers) recently put this flooring in our kitchen, side entrance & basement stairs. The project turned out great, but thank goodness my brother (an expert do-it-yourselfer) had agreed to help us! It was MUCH harder to snap together than the descriptions and videos show. We assumed there would be a "learning curve" and we would get the hang of it as we went along, but, honestly, it never really got any easier, and we struggled with every single tile!
If you plan to install this, be sure you have a TON of patience and at least twice as much time as you think it should take. Another good tip: once you get going, and you are committed to finishing the floor, open most of the boxes and "sort" the tiles of similar patterns into piles. You will find repeats in every box, but there are variations between the boxes, so by sorting them, you can mix the patterns on your floor a little easier.
We have had the floor down for about a month, and I do love the finished product, however, I would only recommend this to a highly skilled do-it-yourselfer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grannyt does the job
My son actually did the work. Only problem was snipping tiles around toilet base. Straight cuts were simple, Not crazy about the color choices but it works in my bathroom. This floating floor is a great alternative to tile -- a one day project, no laying tile and going back and grouting later. Perfect for areas where water is a factor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PopJL So disappointed with this product it is so hard to lay and doesn't lock together as they say.
I purchased this based off of the video showing how easy it was to put down. When I ordered it took 2 weeks longer to get the product than they said, I actually was billed for it before I received it. Some of the pieces will not stay together and there are several cracks in the joints. You get a couple of pieces looking pretty good and then the next piece will move them out of place causing the joints to open up.
I have used other types of allure flooring and had good results but this not worth the money it cost.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tracker edging on panels do not lock in as expected
Panels are difficult to lock in and easily damage around edges. . As there is nothing provided to use as a tap in block , one must use scrape pieces that break up after only 3 or 4 uses. This floor was down for one week and already joints are pulling apart . The installation was tedious at best and it appears I will have to re install it to get the water tight joints I need for this bath installation.
