Rated 5 out of 5Â by amyn A great choice!
My husband and I are absolutely blown away with these floors! Was nervous after reading other reviews about the poor quality but we had absolutely no issues. We have an older home with some settling, so we were nervous about the uneven floor but these floated right over all of it! We had never put down laminate flooring before but it was a breeze, I really think anyone can do it. Buying an installation kit for around $20 will greatly help you as well.
We put down some 1/4" plywood to help with the uneven floor first, then put down underlayment, and then the flooring. Overall, we spent less on all of those combined than we would have on more expensive (even moderate priced) flooring alone.
We've only had the floors in for a little while and we've tried to be careful because again, for the price we were nervous about the quality. But so far we've dropped a few things on the floor, our dog has had an "accident" and runs around and slides on the floor like crazy, had a house party with plenty of spills, we've moved and drug ladders and furniture across the floor, and have a door that we are replacing that has scraped across the floor a few times and we have not seen any bubbling, scratches, or other cosmetic damage. I really think this floor will last us.
We've gotten so many compliments, the floor looks so nice, and people are shocked when we tell them how much we spent. It really is a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by marcie Looks beautiful!
I went online and read the reviews for this floor. We were wondering why it was so cheap. The reviews were very good so we decided to go ahead and try it.
We LOVE it. It looks just as nice as an expensive floor. It is durable and my husband said it was easy to install.
Also, easy to clean.
I would highly recommend this floor to others :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by luvskids11 Great flooring at a reasonable price!
Since this was my first installation, I asked a neighbor with experience to assist me. Once we got started, I found the process easy and the product was easy to install. I do recommend purchasing the laminate flooring installation kit. I was using a 2x4 piece to tap the flooring into place and had to take out a couple of pieces I damaged. My friend had the proper tools and he had no problems installing the product without damaging the edges. Our family loves our new floor and we will be installing more of the same flooring in two more rooms.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by EandS Not too bad..
My husband and I bought this flooring for a house we just bought and had to gut.. We specifically bought this due to the very low price. All in all, it's not too bad. It's obviously cheap and the laminate layer is thin, but we haven't had any problems with the installation... it hold up really well to cutting and the pieces are fitting together nicely. I would recommend this if you are looking for something that you don't plan on having forever. We are using it as an "in the mean time" floor (until we can afford cork) :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Deryk Thrilled with this product - appearance, quality & price!
We just finished installing the Benson Oak laminate in the living room, dining area, kitchen and hallway. It looks fabulous! We were originally planning to use a much more expensive product, but this laminate looked and felt so good despite its 'entry level' price that we decided to try it. This was our first time installing laminate, and we found it very easy and precise to work with. Seams are almost indetectable. Cutting was easy with a hobby-level table saw or hand-held jigsaw, both with all-purpose blades - no chipping whatsoever. I was amazed at the quality control; we used 18 boxes, and not one board was damaged in any way. And unlike many flooring products, it's made in USA - keeping jobs at home.
