I will preface this review by saying this is the first time I have purchased laminate and we chose to install it ourselves, with the assistance of a friend who has installed laminate flooring a couple of times before. So I don't have much to compare it to. The quality of this product definitely seems reflective of it's price. It was extremely difficult to put together without chipping the edges or damaging the edges so that the next piece wouldn't go in, even though we were following manufacturer's instructions and the advice of our experienced friend. At the very end, we found a tip online that suggested using a scrap of laminate between the tapping block and the piece you are tapping in. This worked VERY well, after we figured out the the scrap has to be narrower than the piece. You want the scrap to lock into one side of the laminate piece you are installing, but not two edges, so that you can easily remove the scrap piece after you get the piece in place. If you buy this product save yourself much headache and use that step.
We used this laminate to floor two rooms that connected. It took us ALL day Saturday and Sunday. There was one entire box that had damaged edges and we didn't discover it until we were a row past it and we had to take up two rows to repair it. There was several times where we had to remove a row to fix a chip. I think the tip I mentioned above would have prevented much of that.
I had also read many reviews that said this flooring had good scratch resistance but I did not find that to be true. After installing it, I started to move my couch across it and it scratched right away. Definitely put felt pads under anything that is on top of this.
The floor looks beautiful - but I think this is definitely a case of getting what you paid for and I should have known better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colten970 Very happy with this flooring!!!
First off all, I have never done laminate flooring so this was a learn as you go kind of thing. I would recommend watching some youtube videos, they help! The first 2 rows from the wall were the hardest to get started as nothing would line up. You learn that your walls are not perfectly straight! However, after you fight those first 2 rows everything goes super smooth and simple! ***Important*** As big of a waste of money those kits with the rubber bumper and pull bar seem, DO NOT SKIP OUT ON IT! You will destroy the planks if you try using anything else! trust me, I learned the hard way! Overall, I am very happy with the outcome! Today is day 5 after installation and its still beautiful! Its fairly durable, We have no scratches so far...

Very cheap and a pain to install. Cardboard tongues are fragile. Corners and edges chip and peel easily. Nobody likes to install this type of flooring. Step up to a more durable and easiervtobworkbwith product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KamTX Good floor, easy install, nice color, and really affordable.
Saw this online and found a store that had quite a few boxes in stock local. First thing was I Read the instructions and install went really smooth. Planks Locked in place perfect (I wouldn't tap to hard when locking them in, just tap right until you see the gap close flush and no more) and I maybe had only 2 wood planks out of 18 boxes that were not usable. Its been a few months since I did the install, so far no problems. Has been holding up quite well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MBnAM Great Value / Good Looking Floor
This was a great value for the money! The appearance is very nice. The quality of the product is fair, its not as sturdy as I thought. However, after it has been installed you wouldn't know the difference of how sturdy it is. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I would buy this product again. My only caution is to budget for transition pieces. They are way too expensive, but you have no other choice if you want matching transition pieces. $20 per stick! That is more than I spent per box of flooring.
