We had Home Depot install 265 sq.ft. of Allure Ultra Vintage Oak in our kitchen and breakfast room in August 2011. The floor is lovely. The finished floor has the appearance of a hand-scraped wood floor. There is a lot of color variation in the planks, with lots of light and dark highlights in the medium dark "wood grain." This gives the floor a lot of visual interest as does all the texture of the "hand scraping." There is just enough distressing so that you won't be worried about that first scratch. Either the floor doesn't scratch or else they blend in. I can't see any after all these months.
The floor is quiet to walk on. It does not make that odd noise that laminates have. It feels great on bare feet, too.
The Home Depot installers showed up on time and did a good job. We did have to call them back in after 8 months because we had separation in five rows of planks where they ran the entire 27-foot length of both rooms. One plank in each row separated slightly (we could see a gray line at one end of these planks). The shorter rows were fine. The contractor came back and fixed the problem in about 20 minutes. This service was covered with no problem under the one-year installation guarantee.
This floor is pretty, practical and economical. We love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Irish This product looks amazing once installed!
I bought this floor a year ago and had my brother install. I loved the floor and the comfort of it. I had a water issue in my basement and needed to pull the entire floor up. I was able to wipe clean and save almost the entire floor. There was a small amount of floor that could not be saved due to damage of the interlocking system caused from pulling the floor apart. I ordered the flooring I needed, my brother installed for me once again and the floor looks amazing. It is durable and easy to clean!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Furtive1 Glue Strips Unglue
The glue strips become unglued and have to be repressed. I don't have a solution to prevent the glue strips from becoming unglued. The only thing that keeps the strips from coming unglued is to have constant weight, such as a table, sofa, or chair on the edge. Once the weight is removed, the strips slowly begin to unglue. The floor becomes unsightly and the glue that remains becomes less tacky.
I followed the recommended installation procedures but after only about 90 days, the floor edges began to lift.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by angelbaby VERY DISAPPOINTED
I received these floor samples and was very disappointed. They were just small sizes for too much money! Unfortunately, when I visited a local store, they had some FREE samples like these but not the colors I wanted to I ordered these thinking they were the real sizes..not. I will be returning them. Very disappointed. I really need the full size to decide if it is what I want or not. I will be shopping around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomY This is a sample
The previous reviewer said that there was a glue issue which does not seem possible for a glue less inter-locking, floating product, much less a sample of said product.
