The flooring is very pretty and the color is great! The quality is very good and the installation was not very difficult.

Look wise this is great. I'll try to upload some photos soon. Out of all the vinyl flooring we looked at (Armstrong, Shaw, Allure Traffic, etc.) this was the most aesthetically pleasing to us. It has a "grain", color variations, "knots", which all make this look pretty real in terms of faux wood flooring.
Having said that, next time I will install something not based on looks. This vinyl flooring does not appear as if it will stand the test of time. We had old pergo floor in the kitchen that made it almost 15 years before it started to buckle and split. It was solid. But not water resistant. So we opted to try this instead. It was just professionally installed (our general contractor of 25+ years) has not had a good experience with Allure Ultra flooring. He specifically told us he doesn't want to be on the hook for when (not if, WHEN) the floor seams separate or pop up. Pieces of the vinyl click broke easily, portions popped up repeatedly during install (on a level floor), and it required a circular saw for cutting (that could be a plus or minus).
I'm worried about scratches based on dozens of reviews of the same product in the cinnamon color. We've been gently walking on it as we can feel it move about a bit (it is a floating floor) but our last experience with click flooring was a positive one for over a decade. I in no way have any hope this will last that long. We shall see. I'll update on scratches, seams, and durability.
One more side note: there seems to be a lot of things that void the warranty. I'd research that prior to purchase. No steam mops, the cleaner has to be one of theirs or one they approve, no rolling casters, apparently one must keep receipts of the cleaning products used (recommended cleaning is twice a week), felt on bottom of chairs, furniture, etc. That may bother some, others may be okay with it.

Couldn't beat the price as we came across it on a Black Friday deal. Ordered online for pick up in another state. We placed this from the entry way of our condo through the kitchen, dining room, living room and hall ways. IT LOOKS FANTASTIC. We have had great comments from friends and family as well. I am sure over the years the realistic look of wood grain will get even better as technology improves. I have attached a picture for you to see. Thanks again HOME DEPOT - our one and only place to shop.

We were impressed how easily this floor snapped together and we were able to install over
the existing flooring. This flooring is a wide plank and we were able to cover more area in less time.
Because this flooring is 100% waterproof, we were able to install over all floor areas including bath and kitchen. We love the color and depth of this flooring and the ease of care.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HLS Bad timing
Bad over all rating is on frustration from bad customer considerations. ON ALLURE's part
seams I bought the allure ultra medium oak while the info on the HD page was for an older or different product. the new planks snap together opposite of the old. instructions on the old required you to connect the long side first then snap the short and the new is opposite.
after openning a couple boxes looking for directions and not finding any, I went online to the HD websit. I downloaded the install directions read them and watched a short vidieo. then ruined a plank, went back to the directions and vidieo then back to ruin another plank. so it was either return the 18 boxes or try again, this time I looked the planks over and detected it seemed to snap easier down the long side. so with 7 boxes allready opened I started laying it down mixing the boxes. by the time I had 6 boxes empty I found a set of instruction which stated the correct way to install. my questions are why put instruction at the bottom? why only 4 out of 18 boxes had instructions?
next I ordered 18 boxes and requested them to be of the same dye lot. I got two different dye lots. It even says on the box to use the same dye lot. this may not sound like a big deal bit, it was ordered so I could complete the job while I was off work. this mess-up turned it into a couple weekends which always seems to make a job harder than if it can be worked from start to finish
one word of cation. make sure your joints are locked and stay locked, I kept going back and double checking occasionly findy one that just didn't look quit locked and it wasn't and it is a lot easier if you catch and correct it before you get the next run down. Most building are not perfectly straight. my first 7 runs were 40' long and with 1/4" shims down the wall I found the slight variances made it hard to keep the long side of the planks properly snaped together. a few shims here and there helped a lot. also after the first 7 or 8 runs I made sure everything was straight and locked then transfer all the opened and unopened boxes to be srpead out on the allready installed planks which seamed to help keep everything in place while snaping the rest of the planks together

The flexibility and locking tabs made this flooring easy to install. I also liked the size of the planks making the installation fast.
