Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TicabooDan Great Product for any room
I have used this product in several applications. We have a water problem in our basement and had carpet prior, installed this and even if water is an issue, easy to clean up or remove and re install. Installed on our houseboat in the kitchen and bathrooms, feels great on bare feet, can drop anything on it without worrying about it chipping. Installed in a laundry room that had a water heater leak, no issues is it happens again.
Real easy to install, easy to cut with a knife of scissors, looks great, feels great on the feet, not slippery and looks like wood. If the choice is between a wood or laminate product, get this you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kjewt I love my new floor!
My sister and I installed this flooring in 2 rooms. The first 2 rows are a pain to start. I recommend using a 2x4 to place against the wall to do at least 3 rows then put in your spacers. The other thing to check for, sometimes where it snaps together, little pieces break off and you can't get a tight fit. Just make sure the track is clean of any debris. When doing around door jams it is easier to square your cuts and use sand less grout. It is easy to score and snap. It can be cut on the table saw or band saw and the top side looks perfect. You can leave your floor boards on (took mine off because I redid the walls) and add quarter round to cover the gap. I have 2 dogs (one big one small) that chase each other all the time and they haven't scratched the flooring. It's easy to clean. I'm really happy with my new floor and plan on doing 2 more rooms.

I didn't install this myself, but the flooring is absolutely beautiful. We live near the ocean, so this flooring option was perfect for us. We used it all throughout our condo and used the bull nose product for the stairs. Our place looks great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PCMonroe 1,600 sq ft of Product Failure
After 1 year and 6 months and installed by experienced contractor, this flooring (1,600 sq ft) is coming apart and looks terrible. Initial installation looked good but we have watched it fall apart. We even put window tinting to control sunlight (heat) to the floor. Based on the number of negative comments, this product should be pulled. It may be that the positive comments reflect only a small installation. We have begun the process of trying to get a refund with the Manufacturer, since Home Depot will only honor a 90 day warranty. We wrote our local Home Depot manager hoping for assistance (Debbie - store 1284 in Monroe NY)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dean Looks great, but a pain to install
Took on our basement for my winter project (aprox 400 sqft). Researched flooring options and was leaning towards carpet, but after finding out about a waterproof flooring option, I was convinced to go this route. I read nearly all 1000 reviews, usually dismissing negative ones, because I assumed if something is difficult or goes wrong, it's the installer....
The flooring looks awesome, but the install was less than pleasant. I've done my share of floors (hardwood and tile), but this was by far the trickiest flooring to get in place. I had a 3/4" gap between the new drywall and the concrete, so there was a lot of shifting happening when tapping the planks tight. The tongue and grove system has nearly zero margin of error. It's either in or not, so that took some practice.
Had no problem scoring/snapping the pieces. I only scored over each cut twice. If a short amount needed to be cut off, after scoring, I stepped on that end of the plank to give me leverage while bending it, snapping easily. I did use my table and miter saw for some of the cuts to get around certain corners.
Here are a few pointers I learned from some online blogs, reviews, and/or from my learning curve:
-THIS IS HUGE: fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol to lubricate the joints. Burned my scrapped knuckles like heck, but stinging reduced the swearing & fighting with the planks not fitting tightly together. Made sliding the planks side to side a lot easier.
-make sure your spacers are not going to shift. Once you have a few rows in place, you can weigh down the rows with unopened boxes.
-buy the tapping block, or use a couple edge scraps as a tapping block (one for long edge & one for the end.
-tap the planks together often to ensure the seams are staying tight and a smooth edge between planks within the same row.
-use a pry-bar to get the last piece in each row in place. Of course use a piece of scrap to use between the wall and the pry-bar so you don't dent the wall.
-end join planks together for full rows if possible. Butt up to the newest row, then work your way down the row to angle in and snap into place. This was much easier for shorter rows (about 12'), and saves you the headache of tapping the ends of the planks or using the pry-bar (especially near the glass face of the fireplace).
If it weren't going to be installed in the basement, I don't think I would ever use this product again for a larger space. Looks great, but not the smoothest DYI project I've dealt with. The packaging claims to be the easiest floor ever, which is total BS....Good luck, hope my tips help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sierraaz Excellent product, highly recommended
I've never installed flooring before, but after reading the directions and getting organized, I started and found it was very easy. I finished our new bathroom addition in less than a day. Buy the tapping block, get a carpenters square, a box cutter and the vapor barrier. This is so easy, I'm going to use it in another home project we're working on. The floor looks great. Since this is a vinyl product I was concerned about the "vinyl" smell and the chemicals some products outgas, but this is a green product and there NO SMELL and NO CHEMICAL OUTGASSING to worry about. Perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Davis Kentucky Oak Allure
We bought this from online pictures and found that customer reviews had the best pictures. We loved it in person. We had this installed by a flooring company in our new construction home. They said it was easy to install. We have only lived here for 3 weeks so I can not say how it holds up. We have already recommended it to a few friends. We love the appereance and so far has no marks from our 80lb dog, moving in or our kids wearing on it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catch22 This flooring is awesome!
We installed this flooring in a high traffic breezeway and it looks incredible. It's very hard to tell that it is not wood flooring. The only negative is that the flooring seems to scratch easily when you move furniture across, but these are just surface scratches that wipe off easily with a damp rag. The size of the space was 12 x 27 and my husband and a professional flooring installer had it installed in about 7 hours. You do have to make sure that when you measure the width of the space, you are not leaving a small sliver of flooring for the edges, so if you have to rip a piece at the beginning to make it fit properly, plan for this. Ordering 10% more material than the actual space worked out nicely. We've got some pieces left over in case of damage later on.
