Rated 1 out of 5 by Catmole Does not do the job properly
We bought this product when it was 15% off and it seemed like a good deal at the time for real solid wood flooring BUT this product did not deliver at all !! The thickness (12mm) and overall oak finish was fine but the size of the wood varied soo much between packs. We bought from the same batch to avoid any colour differences but the width of each plank was different making it hard to lay, therefore the width of each plank had to be measured to ensure a straight / even line could be laid even though the pack mentions it is supposed to be 15cm wide. This doubled the time needed to lay the floor and left behind several planks of wood which were the wrong width and had to be wasted! Just thought everyone should know this before parting with your cash!!

Fitted together as expected (not all bits are exactly the same size)
Is a bit thinner than my other solid oak floors, but will do the job and the manager gave me a good deal

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogsbody Great value and quality
Having layed many laminate floors for my home, my daughters homes and my French property I am no longer a "beginner"! This time the flooring was solid oak at an amazing knock-down price and was a delight to lay.
I used a good quality underlay (green fibreboard) and some flooring glue I'd had stored away for almost two years. Fortunately I also have a good sliding mitre saw.
The end result is fabulous (my bedroom) and well worth the effort.
There was almost no waste - I needed 13.5 square metres, bought 14 packs and ended up with three boards left over!

The boards are not perfectly square and do not fit together nicely at all.
PLUS some had chips out or splinters on the edges adding to impression of a very cheap and nasty offering.
This stuff is simply not very good -- even at a discounted price. I bought it when discounted and on a 15% day-now it's nearly 3 times the price, for which you can get much better solid wood floor options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by floorman ask yourself why it's cheap!
i have just laid this stuff for a customer in a bedroom,seriously this is the worst product i have ever seen! the planks are not square,no matter what you do,it's impossible not to have any gaps between planks,even strapping the wood together whilst the glue dries will not work,being solid wood you cannot maniplulate it.if your happy to see you gaps in most of the joints,buy it,if not don't.a poorly machined product.a cheap laminate will give you a better finish! also you won't need a pulling bar and tapping block,because the tounge and groove joints are far to loose,your hands will do the job! i've been laying floors for 28 years,i wish diy stores would not sell flooring that is not fit for purpose

As stated in many previous reviews, this flooring is pony! Boards are different widths making it near impossible to lay without gaps. The colour variation within one pack alone can be ridiculous and beyond reasonable expectation for a real wood product. Filler used when the boards were made means some boards have grey/brown filled areas. UGLY! Boards are bowed and bent straight out of the pack, even though they have been stored correctly. No wonder this product has been on sale at less than half price for the past six months. Trust me, buy something else. I've seen laminate flooring looks better than this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angry Do not buy it !!!!!!
It is a complete waste of money. I bought it in december 2011 and it was fitted properly. Now it has bowed so badly i am going to have to have it removed which is going to be very costly as I bought it for my whole downstairs. I would say dont buy it . I wish I had took the time to read the reviews before i bought it.
