Rated 4 out of 5Â by honeybee68 Looks Great / Easy Installation
I've installed several laminate floors in the past, so I have experience with similar products. While I like the thickness of this floor and the finished look, I was not happy with how it snapped together. It's basically a cardboard channel that holds the planks together, and it's easy to snap off if you're not careful. You also don't get that secure feeling where you know the boards are locked. BUT if you're careful and take your time, this flooring certainly is a value for the money and has a nice finished look.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Homeowner Beautiful results
Had this flooring installed over about 750 sq ft in my 2 story townhouse (kitchen, dining, living room, hall and Master bed w/ walk in closet) by Home Depot 2 weeks ago and love the final product. A bit slippery for my dog when he gets all ramped up and try's to run around but it takes minimal time to swifter or electric broom his fur up. So much easier to maintain then wall to wall carpet. The grain in the product is slightly textured so the dust after the install was apparent but again cleanup was and is a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jude Our expectations of the appearance and durability of our new Pergo floor are more than met.
We have a cabin in northern WI and our decision to replace carpeting with Pergo flooring and an area rug both from Home Depot has definitely made a marvelous change to our living room and porch. We are enormously pleased with the warmth this change has made in the overall appearance. The flooring is durable and serves us well with kids and dogs running in and out bringing in sand and lake debris.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BlackDimension Great floor for a great price - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I installed 330 sq. ft of this flooring in a remodeled family room over a concrete slab, prepared with 6 mil vapor barrier. Of all the boxes, there were only 4 or 5 slightly damaged boards (very small chips on edges or damaged tongues). I was able to use most of these along walls that these edges were either cut, or would be covered by moulding. The quality of the product seems very good - extremely flat, straight, and tight seams. I liked the 10mm thickness, and the surface material seems very hard. The hardness is evident when you cut the material with a circular saw. One thing I personally like about this specific Pergo XP floor (Asheville Hickory) is that it appears seamless (The seams are very clean and tight). I do not like the beveled edges, as they collect dirt, water, pet nails catch, and I think also lend to a weaker floor feel. I also like the seamless appearance as it looks more like real hardwood floor.
This floor is slightly more difficult to put together than an older TrafficMaster product I used - 8mm thick (back when that floor was made better).
Tips: I would recommend having a helper if you are doing an area that spans more than 10 ft or so, because the pieces need to be carefully slid together prior to locking into each previously set row.
Purchase and use the tapping block/outer edge tool/spacers. When you use the tapping block on each new row, put pressure downward on the outer edge as you tap. This will set the joint tightly and flat, releaving any upward angle pressure that is still there.
Quality and Ease of installation I gave 4 stars only because the side joints are fragile and the fit of the pieces must be done correctly. It is relatively easy to damage the side joints, and once damaged they will not lock back in tightly/correctly.
Another item is the pre-attached padding. Previously, I used the Roberts Airguard (padding that had vapor barrier on both sides with styrophone circles as padding). The thickness is about 3.2mm thick vs. the Pergo padding 2mm. The sound and feel of the floor when you walk on it is not as good as the TrafficMaster with the Roberts Airguard. it's not bad, but the padding leaves some to be desired. I would have preferred to have used the Roberts Airguard instead of 6 mil vapor barrier and the pre-attached padding.
Value - I almost gave 4, but it is a 5 being that $2.50/sq. ft is a great price for this floor. Well made, high quality, high durability, and easy to install.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by van1234 Difficult to install
This product looks very nice except for the boards that are slightly bowed so that where one board end fits against the next is slightly raised. We did not notice most of the bowed boards until after the floor was laid. We thought maybe the floor would relax and be level over time. But after 1 week we can still see a few unlevel board end fits. Additionally, this product is harder to lay than other Pergo products.
