          Don't fall for it because it seems easy...
          I was so excited to use this product. I have never tiled before and was nervous about it. I was 95% done with the project and had to stop for a couple days b/c of my schedule with work. During dinner 2 days after putting up all my tile, I heard breaking ceramic tile.... falling off the wall. I went up stairs to find tiles hanging off the wall and a whole section on the floor broken. Fed up with this material, I decided to do it the old fashioned way. Yes, it is ridiculous to get off the wall and it tears up your walls. I have included the pictures... I followed the manufacturers directions. I would NOT recommend this to anyone. It is not user friendly and is easy to install but it doesn't stay. :( Needless to say, I took my box of left over material and empty box and pictures back to Home Depot. They gave me my money back.

            Awesome product!
            My husband and I have used this product on 3 different backsplash projects and it has worked awesome every time! As long as you grout within a short window after hanging the tile we have never had an issue!

              Professional Remodeler review
              So I have to be honest, I was very weary about using this. I mostly do bathrooms and kitchens, but every once in awhile I’ll take on a backsplash job if I’m slow. I thought this would be perfect for a backsplash (absolutely nothing else) as it goes from 3 days to 2. Notes: grout immediately as that’s what gives you strength. No go for larger tiles or penny tile. Average subway should work great. Not forgiving with mosaics.

                Simple Clean and a Strong set
                We install Canadian Soapstone products - this day, we needed to install a backsplash behind the stove. The kitchen was very close to completion, and we needed something that kept everything clean and tidy. The soapstone backsplash was installed and finished in 2 hours ( when we install this type of stone, we don't need grout ), so impressed with the strength of adhesion and how clean and quick it was. Super product!

                  Super easy installtion and cost effective
                  First time I used these but I gave it a shot to install a back splash in my bathroom. For the little area I needed to install tiles, the 10sqf kit was very cost effective and mess free. The sheets are easy to cut with scissors and I installed them on a clean painted surface. If the tiles are pressed on lightly at first you can still remove them as corrections are needed. If pressed on firmly it is very hard to remove them without ripping anything. Overall great product!!

                    Amazing Time Saver
                    I was skeptical using a sticker for laying tile but gave it a try in my laundry room and it was a dream! I was able to cover a 9’x3’ area and grout in about 5 hours using 3x12 subway. The large roll does not com with paper on both sides so it’s a little tricky for cuts, I laid down a sheet of parchment and cut with a new blade. Otherwise very straight forward installation.

                      Walls Need To Be Perfectly Flat
                      If you are using any larger tiles (8" on the longest side) your walls need to be perfectly flat or this won't stick. I checked my walls first, but there were bulges around the outlets so my tile didn't touch this backing and I ended up having to use thinset there anyway, had to wait to grout, and defeated the purpose of using this product, which was 5x more expensive than thinset. You're going to end up using grout, which is going to make a mess anyway, so I'd recommend sticking with thinset.

                        Waste of $$$ and TIME - BEWARE
                        Spent almost $80 to ruin $200 of tile. Looks to be an awesome concept, however it DOESN’T work. This product seemed like an easier and cleaner way to install a tile backsplash. However, tiles started falling off the wall by morning, and never stopped sliding down and pulling away from the wall. I wish I could return this junk. Now I have to remove the tile, then remove this garbage product, go and buy adhesive mix and redo all that I have done. COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY

                          It’s false advertisement
                          Used as described, but company lied about its quality and it cost me time, material, and a headache! Don’t get it. It seems to good to be true, because it is all my material started dropping off the walls within 48 hours.
