I had not installed this product before this week. I was suprised by the high gloss 'finish'- more than most real wood products- and the stout composition of the 1/2-inch core. This product was really nice to work with. The extra weight behind each plank is nice, seating perfectly, each board to the next with a low *click*.

The sheen could spell trouble for certain homes, with every sweaty thumbprint sticking out like a... sore... thumbprint? In this case, the home of a woman in her 70s who lives alone, and who uses a cane to get about, is the ideal environment.

Anyone else installed this one? I know its not 'new', just new to me.

I have a much cheaper cutter. As you could imagine, the handle started to bend before I could cut throught these planks.

Grand illusins is just the beginning. High gloss is back in laminates.
I wonder how long before Vinyl follow suit.

I dont see any advantage in a thicker material. Not like you will sand it down and refinish laminate.
What am I missing?
