Pretty but.....

Pros: attractive, easy to install
Cons: dimensionally unstable, expensive
"Yes, it went down very easily. Yes, it looked great when first installed. But....
I installed this in my kitchen/breakfast area in eastern PA in March, when the humidity was about 70-80%. I left a little space between rows, about 1/32". By June, the floor had buckled like crazy in both directions. Perhaps it's because there are only 2 adhesive strips covering 25% of the back. Some of the adhesive gave way, despite and immaculately clean substrate. The floor stayed that way the entire Summer and is just now (October) has almost settled back into place. However, the buckling took its toll and slivers have gotten kicked off. I'm afraid to walk barefoot in my kitchen. There was a spill on the floor at one point and, after 15 minutes of saturation, the adhesive in that area was completely worthless.
For $4 a square foot, uninstalled, you can do much, much better. Sure, I could have left more room for expansion, but was never given the message in any literature that this material is extremely dimensionally unstable and requires enormous gaps on the order of a 1/8" or more to keep from buckling.
This material is not ready for prime time in any climate with seasons. On the plus side, it's the easiest flooring in the world to pull up."

"I installed this bamboo flooring in a 16'x24' sunroom. It was not difficult to install and I have received many compliments on its looks. It really looks good in the sunroom."

So easy to install! Great looks and feel!

Pros: add a pro
"I was visiting a friend in Naples, Florida recently and helped her put in a 13' x13' room flooring. I'd never done anything like that before and was a little concerned, but it turned out to be such fun! We had the whole thing done in about 4 hours and it looks awesome! Feels great to walk on too. I'm so going to do my bedroom floor too! Can't wait!"

Awesome product

Pros: excellent product
Cons: a bit pricey
"Beautiful look and feel. Installed a 14 x 12 bedroom in under 6 hours. All I needed was a sharp blade and a square tool (woodworkere's type). The easiest floor installation ever for me. I would recommended to anyone."
