Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillW Love this product! It looks so real!
The click style is a little more difficult to install than the grip strip but not a big issue. Much faster and easier than ceramic and the fact that it is so much faster saves money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Disco MY BOAT NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD! So glad i did this project!
The carpet in the cabin of my boat (41-foot cruiser) had become too stained to clean. I wanted a change from carpeting but the flooring options from marine suppliers were all cosmetically disappointing to me. After searching many places for a better option I discovered Allure vinyl plank flooring. The appearance of this floor covering was superior to everything else I had previously looked at and the waterproof properties of the vinyl plank were compatible with the requirements for a boat installation. The unusual angles and curves of the cabin area also seemed like a good match for the easily cut vinyl material. After finishing the project, I couldn't be happier. The installation took some planning but once I got going things went very smoothly. The ability to cut the planks with a blade or heavy shears made the project significantly easier than if I would have had to use power tools. There are three hatches in the floor and I was able to easily cut these areas. I found some aluminum trim that worked great around the margins of the hatches and complemented the floor product well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcnielerini Great floor!
Had this installed for a month, so far it is great!
We purchased this floor after I ruined my laminate flooring from a washing machine overflow blunder. Now that our remodel is over I am so glad my laminate floor is gone! This vinyl flooring is wonderful! It is surprisingly warm underfoot and much quieter than I expected. The install took 2 people a full day to do (living/dining/hall) using 12 boxes. It was easy to score and snap with a utility knife. Cutting around door frames was more complicated but not too bad. We made a template from the perfect plank-sized sheets included in the packaging to cut the patterns out. Some of the planks took a little bit of muscle to snap together, but all in all it was pretty easy.
The floor looks great and is so much easier to keep clean than my laminate (which was always a 2-step process. When I cleaned my laminate I had to immediately go back and dry it to prevent water spots even when the floor was barely damp). The Allure Ultra does not show water spots at all saving me time when cleaning.
The floor looks great and we have received many compiments. The color and texture make it appear more like wood. Before purchasing the Allure Ultra we compared several other brands, we almost purchsed a similar loking product that was over $1 less per sq ft until we compared samples side by side. There was no comparison! The cheaper product scratched extremely easily while it took a lot of pressure and several scratches with a pair of scissors to scratch through the colored layer of the Allure. You would have to drag an extremely heavy and sharp object over this floor to damage it. The other product would have scratched through the color layer with a rock in your shoe!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timthecarpenter Great looking, easy to install, warmer
I am a carpenter by trade and this is the easiest laminate flooring I've ever put down. The flexibility makes it extremely easy to work around those tight cuts. Save a couple small falloff pieces for tapping blocks for those few spots that need some persuasion. One review I read said they wasted a lot of material "lining" up all the seams, don't do this. Laminate flooring is supposed to look like wood floor and wood floors are all random board lengths. When you have falloff on one end of the room use it as a starter for the next course. And of course vacuum between courses if it's collecting dirt or sawdust. It's warmer to the touch and quieter to walk on (especially for my dog) than the regular types of laminate floors, I think because of the rubber backing. It also saves a lot of time and money because you don't have to use underlayment.
My biggest piece of advice is Take Your Time, if you're getting frustrated with something take a break get a new outlook before you come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrcynical beautiful look and easy installation
this product is a little costly but was the perfect choice for my basement floor. Looks great, was easy to install, and the possibility to take up and reinstall again if I ever need to was a feature that sold me on it.
Be sure to calculate the best starting point and what length plank to start with and the rest is a breeze. My basement was full of furniture, toys, clothes, appliances, air hockey table, pool table, and a surround system and I was still able to install this flooring. The pool table was a challenge but I was able to use a floor jack to lift one end at a time (took two lifts on each end) and run the flooring under each leg.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner Best flooring if you have dogs as part of your family...
My husband installed this in just a couple of days, for him it was easy instillation as he has worked in the construction business for over 40 yrs. The only recommendation he would have is to keep your eye on what was already snapped together as you go because it tends to come apart behind you when you are snapping new pieces together. We have 3 dogs(2 German Shepherds and a small mixed breed). They can be very rough on flooring even in a very well managed household. We saw that this product was recommended for being non scratching and cleans easily. I have to say for the short time it has been down it appears to be just that. The flooring looks great and even makes our living room look bigger... We WILL be installing this product in other rooms of our home. There have been many compliments on its appreance already.....
