I had an independent contractor install this floor 2-1/2 years ago to replace carpet in my three bedrooms. I have not had any issues with crackling, scratching, warping or other negative outcomes. However, I do not have dogs, and my children are in their 20's, not prone to playing with their toys on the floor! So perhaps my floor doesn't take the hardest abuse. I have had a small amount of water spilled on it which actually sat for a couple of days with no effect on the floor.
The contractor put a thick underlayment as a base for the floor which has kept it quiet, and after installation, he put felt pads on the bottom of all furniture used in those rooms to keep them from scratching/denting. But the floor does feel very durable and it looks beautiful. I am very pleased with the color and the wood grain. As far as laminate goes, I am very happy with this floor.
