Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MJThompson Okay quality, great price, wrong instructions
Looksfine but the joint flanges are easily damaged during installation.
The instructions say for each plank to join the short end, then join the long ends before moving on to the next plank. That doesn't work. For each row join all the short ends then join the long ends Crazy but it works

Looks beautiful! Not the color that shows on HomeDepot website is more like the trim colors shown though (Gladstone Oak) My installer had no problems with installation. His technique looked quite reasonable by snapping end to end while total length is set in an upward angle, if that helps anyone!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrfixit Excellent price. Looks really nice after installation. Has high end "fake wood floor" look to it.
Was a bit harder to install than more expensive flooring, but laid an unopened flooring box diagonal across board just installed to prevent separating it from its locked groove when installing the next board. Looks awesome and several customers were very impressed with it. I told no-one I paid $.68 per square foot. Damaged one board with the install tool slipping off edge but was able to use it as a started board by cutting off the damaged end. Used the cut piece from the end of one run to start the next. Seams are hard to see as it snapped together nice and tight. I did use the installation tool on 2 pieces that were close to the wall and hard to get much swing from palm of my hand to snap together. Took longer to remove, trim and replace molding around doors than to install 250+ sq. ft. flooring. I bought enough for 2 more install jobs. Far easier than laying carpet and cleans up nice. Hope to get several years use from it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DrStevens Difficult to install because of end and edge interlocking design
I have installed many laminate floors. This design was very difficult to install. At first I laughed at the other "difficult to install" reviews but having completed my first room with this product, I'm fully on board with the reviewers. The design requires first interlocking plank ends and then persuading the long edge to interlock with the previously installed row. Doing so requires a lot of board wrestling and requires moving neighboring planks from the previous fully installed location. Installing this flooring will likely take 3 times longer than other laminates with the "align the long edge, lower and simply pop the end" design. You WILL have to use a tapping block to install this, be careful not to ruin edges. Because of the design, working around door molding under-cuts, etc. is extremely difficult. Looks great when done.

It's cheap for a reason. Crumbles in your hand when you try to join them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by afacanyedi excellent look but hard to install
I really hard time to figure out how to snap planks both sideways and longways simultaneously. It requires a major force and yanking to make it work. After finishing it though, it looks excellent, feels great to walk on. It's a great value.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kasey Never would recommend
I bought this for because I was looking for something economical and I figured with the 15 year warranty I would be safe boy was I wrong I have laid several different laminate floors from different makers and never had anything fall apart within one and a half months of being laid down.there is no shine to the floor. The floor always looks dirty. the seams have opened up and I have 5 gouges that have gone right through the laminate to the underlying subfloor it is attached to. Home Depot has replaced the cost of the floor but not the labor cost Trafficmaster has refused to replace the labor cost which was more than the flooring I will be fighting for my labor cost it is very unfair if they feel the floor is garbage and yet won't replace labor cost
