Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MattyNH Very nice product, great support but do your homework
Purchased this product to go in our kitchen, small bath and laundry areas. Did a ton of homework around it, watched all the videos, read reviews and read the instructions. However, the design on the locking system changed so if your product says 'drop and lock' the older videos do not apply any longer and it's not as simple of an install. Luckily Allure's support was extremely helpful and pointed us in the right direction to new instructions and videos (The ISOCORE videos show the new methods). For the ends of the board you will need a mallet or soft hammer to get those in as well, they do not just click in with the new system.
After having the right instructions the process really sped up and it was easy to install and looks great! One thing to really keep in mind is how much flooring you will actually need as you will have a good amount of waste if there are a lot of odd cuts in the room. Because they have to lock you can waste pieces easily that can't be used elsewhere if you're not careful. Even being careful we still had piles of wasted pieces but the rooms were not simple square layouts, there were many odd cuts and obstacles.
Overall the product is very nice and the finished product is fantastic. Time will tell how it holds up but so far we are impressed. I will also say that the new locking mechanism appears that it will take care of previous complaints of joints opening up over time. If you install this correctly I don't see how that could happen now.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RonaND Good product
Product quality is very good. Install is not as easy as portrayed, but manageable. I've never done flooring before, but my wife and I were able to install in multiple rooms and it looks great. Recommend a table saw with fine tooth blade to make cuts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by andy1 old kind better than new
I have installed this product in 3 rooms of my house and it was amazing and easy to use. I had never done flooring or any kind of work really, but it was extremely simple.
Sadly, I purchased more to do my hallway and the product they sent me was different than previous. Instead of interlocking ends and sides, the sides still interlocked but not very well and the ends just snapped in. It made it easier to install the ends however they did not hold well at all. Also they did NOT work with the old product.
The old product (they must have changed it just a few weeks ago) was amazing. The new product is terrible with any floor that is not perfectly level. The old product would keep its hold b/c the ends and sides interlocked, but since the new type only snaps in on the ends, it is horrible with any difference in height of the floor.
If the floor is not perfect then you can see seams between the boards which is extremely annoying visually and also then doesn't make the product waterproof. With the old product every thing interlocked great and you would never see the seams.
Sadly I have to order 3 more boxes of this cr ap to finish the hall\way because I had to chuck the old stuff since they didn't work together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PVDad Awesome flooring! Awesome price! Not easiest of install.
This flooring looks amazing and has the quality of name brand flooring. The price is less than half of what you would pay at a floor retailer. I tried all samples of various big name brands; the more you pay, the better wear layer and look you get. Allure Ultra gave me the look, feel and awesome wear layer (130 lb dog running around and kids) of all the major brands. As easy as any floating vinyl plank to install as all their locking mechanism look the same. Cutting with a utility knife was not all that easy as these planks are made thick and the wear layer is equally made not to be cut or scratched. Covered 1250 sq of basement including closet, bathroom and guest room.
