Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy great looking floor
my husband and I decided to install this in our house, he is visually impaired and only has about 60% of sight in his left eye and is blind in his right eye it and to top it all off we both have back problems , the flooring was easy to install , we were concerned with how it would stand up to getting wet , so we did an experiment . we put 2 scrap pieces in a bucket of water and left one for 12 hours , the other for 24 hours , after 12 hours there was no measurable difference , after 24 hours there was 1/32 of an inch difference we have uploaded photos to show what we did . the piece marked 0 had never touched water

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by olmp1100 Simple install of nice looking laminate
Just installed this laminate in our kitchen. First time floor install for us, and it couldn't have been simpler! A few tips:
We found that there are five (5) different patterns of "boards". Each "board" has the appearance of three planks of wood. The first thing we did was open the boxes and separate them into 5 different piles according to pattern.
As we installed them, we put a piece of painters tape on each board with the corresponding pattern number. That way, as we were installing, we could ensure a good mix of patterns. It also helped us visually see which patterns looked nice together and lined up the best.
Be The only tools you need are a circular saw to cut the end pieces and a rubber mallet to tap the planks into place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigt4u610 Great for the price!!
Installed this product in my kitchen almost two years ago and it still looks great! Installation was relatively easy, but there were several broken corners in the boxes. I just put the broken or chipped planks together to create a full box and returned them to Home Depot for a refund (piece of cake). In lieu of that.... I'd order an extra box or two right away. Be sure to glue the planks wherever water may come into contact with ANY laminate flooring (eg.. sink, dishwasher, ect..)!! Haven't had any scratching issues with the pets or table chairs. Will purchase more to continue through my foyer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kbro This laminate looks great installed
I was amazed at how good this looked when finished. I thought it would be okay at the price but it has brightened up every room I put it in and was easy to install. I move slow and it took me about a day per room beginning to end. Highly recommended to anyone with a budget.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by QlulsOnLI After a year of happiness, something bad happened
Very easy to install. I mean a piece of cake. Only cutting needed was at the edges. Loved the finish look. Happy for a year. Then I spilled some window cleaner on the floor. I admit, it wasn't just a little bit. It was about a cup. The amount spread over a few planks. I wiped it up quickly, but the damage was done. Where each plank connected it curled, all along the edges. Now it looks buckled! I was told this flooring was excellent where spills and pet urine is concerned. Well, that didn't happen. I've spilled water, wiped it up, and was happy nothing happened to the laminate. A chemical spill, however, is a different story. At least this flooring is in the bedroom. I will have to pull up the flooring to replace these curled pieces as it will eventually chip away from slippers or barefeet. Just horrified with what occurred. Would I recommend this product? Yes, but beware of anything but water falling on the floor! So frustrated, too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMC7 So easy a woman can do it!!!
I have to say that I was scared to take on this job myself, but when you own your home and want to get a job done without huge costs you jump in feet first! I went to YouTube for a tutorial on how to install laminate planks, I watched it one time and then headed off to Home Depot. At the store I talked with the flooring manager for a few minutes to see approximately how many packages of flooring I would need for my 22 x 14 room (I purchased 15) I set out to begin my project, first ripping out all of the carpeting, tacks and nail strips around the edge of the room. I then started laying out the under layment and the flooring, mind you it was 3 days after I purchased so it had time to acclimate to the temperature. So, I began my install on a Saturday afternoon around 2 pm and I worked BY MYSELF (I am woman!!) laying and cutting all of the pieces ... I finished the install at 1:30 A.M. on the following Sunday morning .. when I begin a project I can't stop until finished, it's like a great novel. It is so beautiful still 2 years later and I have two big dogs running across it constantly! I loved this flooring so much that I did a second room again by myself a few months later! LOVE IT so much that once again I am going to purchase more and redo my kitchen with it!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AllThumbsRob Excellent value
I needed to match some existing flooring and this matched so well that it is almost unnoticable from the older pieces. I was easily able to remove the damages slats, snap in the new ones and tap them together for a clean fit. I chose to attach them using finishing screws, because the floor is uneven, but I was able to find a matching DAP Plastic wood in the exact same shade.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kjga Beyond dissappointed
I'm not sure who all the people are saying that this stuff is easy to install. It was a nightmare. Many of the planks were warped or damaged right out of the box, they dont always "lock" together like they're supposed to and they chip easily. The worst part was discovering that not all the planks were square. Unfortunately that part wasnt evident until mid-way through the project. What was supposed to be a small, inexpensive project became anything but.
