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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SandiC looks wonderful.. easy to install
I am a 64 year old lady and installed this product in a 300 sq ft living room alone. It took a couple false starts to figure out how to interlock the planks and and lock the rows together. After that it went quite fast... layed whole floor in about 7 hours (including cutting planks, and frequent breaks!) Am doing the entire house so only have 1200 sq ft to go!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by noazdiy Great Floor for a DIY'er
I was skeptical when looking at purchasing this floor, I was reading reviews and I was second guessing myself. But I didn't, this flooring fit into my budget so well I was actually able to install some tile as well. I had the boxes in my house for about a month to acclimate, I began laying this tile solo, it was a no go. You need on other person, my second person for most of this install was my 6 year old daughter, she and I installed 200+ sq ft in a little under 3 hours. (my total install is 990sq ft). The rest of the install my pregnant wife helped, this floor is easy to install, the only chips in the laminate surface were because of operator error. I would recommend having access to a compound miter saw, as well as a table saw. These two tools will help, oh yeah and read the instructions. This floor has a new locking system that works great but you need to read the instructions first.
My house looks great, seamless wall to wall laminate with very few imperfections. If you know how to adapt and overcome you can install this floor, if you think it will be a cake walk you should have a professional install it. A 6 year old was able to help install 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gitrdone I love this floor!!!
We 1st put it in our bedroom and it turned out so nice we put it in the rest our house. Super easy to install. But there is a trick to installing it. Click all of the pieces together longways and prop up the section (we used bowl) then clicked the whole line together removed the bowls and clicked down seamless and easy. Looks great and perfect with pets.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prince fast and easy!
flooring very easy to handle and install (I worked alone). Took 2 days to lay 1200+ square feet. Looks great, some chipped on the corners but if you are careful no problems. The job went faster than anticipated.
