I chose this because of budget and appearance. This was installed on the bottom floor of a bi-level, so it's technically above grade, therefore no moisture issues are anticipated. Tongue and groove works well, but some pieces had to be stepped on during installation to insure they would lay flat. Also, the installation tool that has edges that conform to the grooves and a rubber mallet are a must, otherwise you will damage edges easily. I did a 10' X 16' room in two days (due to large furniture in the room and some tedious cutting in the closet area) and have no complaints at all with the material, installation, or final appearance. This is a great value for the price.

We installed this flooring a couple of weeks ago. I went from carpeting and linoleum tiling to 570 sq. ft. of this beautiful flooring. The preparation of the house was more cumbersome than the actual installation. The installation went smoothly, with very little waste. The installation kit helps quite a bit. The final product supersedes my expectations.

My son and I installed this in our basement today. First time installing a laminate floor. After the first few courses - our pace quickened.
No bad pieces, seams match up perfectly, and color is consistent between cartons. Dropped a hammer (claw side) on it by accident - no scratch at all.

Wanted to put down laminate in a 400sf bedroom and didn't intend to pay Pergo prices. I was hesitant to get $1/ft laminate because I have put down laminate several times and have used the cheapest to very good Pergo and the cheap stuff is usually cheap for a reason. Usually the connections are like cheap cardboard and the wood chips very easily when tapping it together. This stuff really surprised me. Everyone who puts down their own flooring knows getting the first 3 or 4 rows down is always the toughest because the boards keep disjointing whenever you try to tap in the next board and next row. To my surprise these "cheap" boards were connecting well and staying firmly connected as I tapped in each board. This and just the quality feel of the boards totally reminded me of some great Pergo I had put in my rec room a year ago. They look great too with a nice texture you usually don't get with such low priced laminate. I got the first 3 rows down in no time and sat there for a minute in shock that I didnt have to re-do and part of the rows because of a board or two coming loose. For a non-pro wannabe do it yourselfer like me this was a relief. Once those 3 rows are in the rest is just quick click, quick tap on the end and move on. Bottom line is that I could have paid much more for this stuff and I wouldn't have felt cheated. It's not top level laminate but maybe a step below, but still very solid. Couple tips for the very inexperienced to the slightly experienced like myself, When connecting the side part of the board to the previous row, give the board several wiggles up and down and it should click in flush instead of thinking you have to tap in every board on it's side. Also, get the installation kit. Reading some of these laminate reviews it's amazing that people will give a low rating to a laminate and complain about how hard it was to install and then at the end say maybe they should have gotten the kit. I have no idea how they got it down without the kit. No wonder you had a tough time. Anyway, if you're looking for a good quality laminate I don't see any way you can find any better for this price.
