Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Only use a Pro to install... He won't like you when you are done.....
We had a Pro install our floor and he was very unhappy with the product. He said the tiles are poorly designed in regard to the click and lock. Some of the seams are invisible, others can be seen easily. On the click and lock there is a small plastic bead that breaks loose easily and then gets trapped and won't allow the tiles to seat properly.
He also said he would rather install stone tiles than this stuff.
There is also not enough variety of patterns.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fixit15 Difficult to install
Once the tile is properly installed it looks great. The problem is getting the tiles to properly get that "click" sound and perfect no black showing along the seem. It is important to thoroughly inspect each tile out of the box to verify there is no burr along any of the edges. The instructions show pushing the tile in place after aligning the short edge. Our experience has been that it is easier to kneel on the installed tile and to pull the next tile toward yourself after aligning the sort edge. If you still can't get a snug fit use a block and hammer with a scrap piece of tile to protect the edge.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cae My installer hated it
I purchased this floor because I wanted a white 12 x 24 vinyl tile. No one makes one, unless you can afford to pay a lot more. You either get 12 x 12 or some kind of pattern in white. Don't believe the review that says it looks like marble. It looks like what it is. My installer hated it. Said it was the most difficult floor he has ever installed and won't be doing this product again. That said, the end result is nice as it is a sturdy floor. There were a lot of dark patterns. Not what I expected. I went through them and laid them out before installer arrived. I found enough lighter colored tiles to satisfy me. Not crazy about the pattern, but it seems like a very durable product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BufGal51 Great product
My friend had installed other "floating"floors so he was confident he could do it. The only issue was the thickness of the product and he had to find a better knife tool to work with. In the end he used old-fashioned paper cutter to do the major cutting.
I love the result !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LarryInTucson Duplicate Patterns
I like this tile in every way except for the duplicate patterns. The tile is meant to resemble marble, which has naturally different patterns with every tile. This is not the case for the Ultra Carrara White. Out of three boxes, four tiles had the same pattern, and there were other patterns that were repeated 2-3 times. In one box, there were two identical tiles next to each other. Some of the duplicated patterns are offset, and some are turned 180 degrees, but still identical. This alone knocked my rating down from 5 to 3.
Otherwise, the tiles are thick, and seem of high quality. Much better than sheet linoleum. They are easy to cut by scoring with a razor knife and snapping. For intricate curve cuts, I used aviation tin snips. The tiles are not as easy to install as wood click floating flooring because the vinyl is not as ridged, so a little bit of flex makes it difficult to click it in place. But still much better than a large sheet of linoleum.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MNremodeler Simple-Fit Style Ends are easier
This product looks great and should wear very well. If at all possible buy the Simple-Fit End version of this product. It will be easier to install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sal Directions not real good
The directions indicate to cut the tiles by scoring with a utlilty knife and then snapping it. It took 15 minutes with the utility knife before I was able to snap it. I switched to a jig saw, protecting the edge I was keeping with tape, and the cuts went great. Since the tiles need an angle of 10 to 20 degrees between the tongue and groove in order to lower and lock, sliding into the long side for second through remaining rows does not work. I tried numerous times and could not get the long sides to go together. When I assembled the second row and brought it to the first row intact and at a 10-20 degree angle, I was able to get the correct locking action. The install really needs two people and maybe more based on the length of the run.
