Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tkf Great solid tile looks like ceramic!
The name is deceiving as it's definitely more tan than gray, however it's still a beautiful tile. We chose the grouted look and used natural gray (?) grout. It even tricked one of our guests who thought it was ceramic! :) Easy to cut and place. We put down a liquid floor primer on top of the subfloor to help the self stick and have had no issues yet. Would purchase again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NJack Perfect solution for an uneven basement floor
I have an uneven basement floor prone to some water leakage. Wood, ceramic and carpeting were not possible. I used the grout for an additional finishing touch. This tile looks good with most any color palette, was easy to install, and you have to point out that it is not ceramic to anyone looking at it. Very pleased and I looked for a flooring solution for a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mreno Great tile look without the hassle
We put this flooring in our foyer. We wanted ceramic tile but that would entail sistering joists and redoing the subfloor. (We did this in our kitchen so we knew how involved this is!) The subfloor also had the correct underlayment for vinyl stick tile so we decided on "tile look". The tiles went down great. Straight cuts were easy, curved and intricate cuts were not so easy since the tile is stiff. We did a herringbone pattern which made the room look larger. I used 1/8" spacers and filled in with delorean gray with Simple Grout. It is a great floor! The only con is that it is slippery with socks and certain shoes. I think the surface could have more texture to prevent that. It also has quite alot of sheen. Just be aware of that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vickietoria The pics here do not do it justice
Saw these in the store initially and couldn't believe the price after seeing these installed at a neighbor's place which obviously held up very well to normal wear and tear in their high traffic areas. They do use Armstrong floor cleaner designed for this line of floors. The pearl color is lux and in a league of its own because of the added metallic wash. I will use it on my hallway, into a kitchen and to finish off tops of walls in lieu of tile in my small bath and over the doors giving it a sense of continuity. The photo here is sadly lacking texture. Reviews of the 12x12 squares are more descriptive of the many fluid shades of taupes/grays/beliges and two different metallic rubs - subtle but effective. The bigger tiles have more continuity lengthwise while the squares' pattern seems to be more self contained (if the right word), i.e. as if rubbed i a circle. I think given a choice the bigger tiles are more versatile and may be cut into squares anyway but look richer as they are. Hoping the store sample boards will add to the review. It does not look too modern to me but rather will fit beautifully with my Restoration Hardware furniture and add a clean feel of a elegant Italian floor I once saw in a Tuscan villa. Could go modern w/o changing floors. Read the reviews of the square tiles - better descriptions and tips. My photo looks a bit dark but you can get an idea. Square pic shows the heavier metallic on the smaller tiles. I am no longer bitter about my small budget. :)

This product turned out to be as advertised. It was installed with grout between each tile. This gave it a stone look. This stone illusion is consistent throughout. We are happy with the finish. My friends believe that it is actually stone until they feel the vinyl finish with their hands!

I installed this product approximately 1.5 years ago with grout. It was easy and fast to install. It looked great for about 3 months. That was about it. Now I absolutely loathe this floor. As a matter of fact, I'm not even certain if "loathe" comes close to how I really feel about this tile. It looks absolutely hideous. It has chipped, has irreversible scuff marks, lost the printed paper in spots showing black underneath. The worst problem is the texture that seems to attract and hold onto dirt. This floor only looks clean if I spend a couple of hours on my hands and knees with a floor brush and copious amounts of bleach. I've tried sealing it, hoping that the indentation depth might be minimized. No such luck. I admit that I may be hard on floors with 4 (almost) grown kids, but I think a floor should be able to withstand reasonable foot traffic, especially since we do not wear shoes in the house. I paid more than .99 per square and am only biding my time until I can financially justify ripping this stuff up and replacing it with anything, and I mean anything, else.

We waited to find just the right flooring. It was delivered in a timely fashion, and my husband had no problems installing. Looks fantastic!

This is not the first time we've used the peel and stick vinyl tiles before. In fact, having great success and ease gave me the confidence to try not the standard square but this rectangle (and also the mosaic peel and stick tiles that are available). Knowing that layout, level and square measurements are important we got our first tile laid carefully. Unfortunately it seems that these tiles are not all evenly cut. Hours of measuring and having to pull up and reset aside, they eventually laid almost flush to one another. It was just a tremendous pain. I could see how these would be easily grouted and then their imperfections wouldn't matter, but I didn't want grout. I'd have bought ceramic tiles if I wanted grout.
The unevenness of a few of the tiles in the box was annoying but we still managed to make it work, and the results are very good. More annoying that a deal breaker. What is hard is that this is in store to be seen, no samples there to take and look at and its only online to order (at least in my area of VA). Having to wait for them to arrive, not knowing if they would work for the job is the biggest draw back. Beyond that, the case size of 35sqft is pretty small, but the price of a case is cheap. Since these are not in stores to look at, buying more in the same dye lot to match isn't as easy as running up to the store. We ended up needing ONE more tile for our bathroom and had to make due repurposing the cut ends for under our sink where it will never be seen. Knowing they are just slightly irregular, knowing the LONG shipment time, the lack of easy access to additional tiles id say that yes I'd buy this again, but I'd also have to buy 2 cases to do 35 daft bathroom and to have replacements. That's just wasted money when there are choices in the store that do the same thing but easier to access.
