Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JKLockwood Great Product - Wrong Color
This product line was only available online when I found it. 1-800-Home Depot offered to contact Traffic Master for samples but I never heard back from Customer Service. Therefore I went ahead and purchased my two best color options just to touch/see/try it in my space. I purchased one case of the TrafficMaster Ceramica12 in. x 12 in. Concrete Resilient Vinyl Tile Flooring (30 sq. ft. / case). It's of great quality, however, the color has much more of a tan hue in life than it does grey like in online product pictures. I also purchased 1 case of the TrafficMaster Ceramica12 in. x 24 in. Coastal Grey Vinyl Tile Flooring (30 sq. ft./case). I've returned the Concrete Resilient and will order the full quantity in Coastal Grey. Since I was not pressed for time- and the orders were shipped free-- the in-store no hassle return makes it more of a non-issue. But as a cost-conscious consumer I like to help maximize profits and keep prices low so I prefer to had samples.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYerBob Great alternative to ceramic tile
Hardest part of the entire process was prepping basement concrete floor before laying these tiles down. Trafficmaster's basement proofer is a must. You will only need a total of 10 spacers to do the entire floor. Once the tile is in place and stuck to the floor it doesn't move at all. 12 inch speed square, box cutter, and tin snips made the job super easy to cut the tiles to the exact size I needed. I did grout the tiles with the simple tile pre mixed grout, and was able to do the entire basement (170 sqft) with 2 Qt. Best part about these tiles are they don't get cold even though its directly on concrete in the basement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Josephine The tiles are so durable and easy to put down.
The tiles were much more durable than I thought they would be. It totally transformed my kitchen. They were easy to cut using a carpet knife (box cutter) for the ones that needed to be trimmed. I could even use scissors for a few pieces. I would highly reccomend this product for anyone looking for a "quick fix" in home improvement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoreyG Easy Install, Looks Great
Looks like a much higher end tile than what you'd expect for the price. I have put this down in a bathroom at one house, and a bathroom, a laundry room and a kitchen at another so far and everyone loves it. Have not grouted but like that the tile can be spaced and grouted. Doesn't have the "cheap stickdown" tile look or feel at all. They feel like real tile minus the cold, the cost and all the labor. And try pulling up a ceramic tile and sticking a new one back down in it's place. Good luck, but with these, if you happen to ruin one replacement is easy (use a hairdryer to heat it up).
Installation is a bit more difficult than the cheap vinyl stickdown tiles but was still very easy. Although a utility razor won't cut through these, you don't need it to - score then break apart.
Score with a razor and break apart. For curves etc, I had no trouble scoring a few times and bending the tiles around the score until the shape came apart.
Lay the tiles flat on the floor in a warm room and make sure they are up to at least room temperature before you lay them. If the box is on end the tiles might be bowed a bit when you try to lay them.
If going over existing vinyl, make sure it's extra clean before laying the tile.
Take tile from all the boxes you're working with so any variations aren't obvious.
Use some cheesecloth and wipe down each spot before you stick the tile down.
After you're done installing, crank the heat up in the room so the tiles really have a chance to lay down to your floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gloryimages Loved this resilient flooring!
Everyone that comes to our home comments on how beautiful the kitchen floor looks! They have to bend down and feel the floor to confirm it is not ceramic. It looks like ceramic, but feels "warmer". We love the feel and the look. It cleans easily and the concrete color looks great with our stainless steel and dark wood. In fact it hides dirt amazingly! The tile was extremely easy to lay down. The 10X20 foot job went quickly and smoothly. I loved being able to cut the tile with a box cutter. If the tiles are slightly warm, it is even easier to go around curved edges. (I did this in the summer in Western NY) I did not use spacers because I wanted really thin grout lines. I used the premixed grey grout suggested and it was easy! I could not be happier with the results.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Unclelou Beware the web color sample
Just to let you know that the color sample in the web site picture is NOT representative of the color. The web sample leads you to believe that the color is grey - its not. Its leaning more towards brown. Hope this saves you an unnecessary order if you were going for more of a true grey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WJ4587 Great Quality Vinyl Tile
This Tile looks great installed in my master bath compared to regular Vinyl Tile! (Which I previously installed in my guest bath.) A word of warning, they are a lot harder to cut than regular Vinyl. I ended up buying a Vinyl Tile cutting tool (kind of looks like a paper cutter) to do the job. After that, the install was a breeze!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NewMexicoGirl Look great with grout!
I've been thinking about trying these for awhile and finally decided to give them a try in one of my small bathrooms. The bathroom has 14-year old ugly ceramic tiles that just never look clean despite even professional attempts at cleaning. They're just worn out. In any case, those ceramic tiles are a bear to remove. So, I wanted to try installing these 12" vinyl tiles directly OVER the ceramic ones... I figured that if they didn't turn out right, I'd just remove it all and start chiseling away at those old tiles. Well, I am happy to report that they turned out better than alright... they look awesome! You really CANNOT tell that these are vinyl tiles AT ALL. And laying them directly over my old tiles worked perfectly. I didn't even use spacers. I just stuck all of the tiles on and grouted (using Precision luxury vinyl grout) about 4 tiles at a time, wiped away the excess grout, and done! The instructions say to use no wider than 1/8" grout lines. My grout lines are 1/4" and they turned out just fine. There were 2 grout cracks/spots that I ended up patching with my fingertip (took less than 2 minutes). The tiles feel very solid and the grout is rock-hard. Some people reported that the edges of some tiles stuck up and wouldn't stick. I was worried when I saw 5 of the 30 tiles had corners that weren't sticking. I stood on the corners for about 2 minutes each just before grouting and they stuck down just fine. Once they were not sticking up anymore, I grouted in-between and they weren't going anywhere. I would recommend these tiles to anyone and everyone I know. My bathroom looks fresh and new again and the entire job cost me less than $60 including tiles, grout, and grout seal.
