Top critical review
Easy to install, but.......

Hmm - I have mixed feelings on these tiles. Asthetically they’re not bad but they don’t look like real wood. They interlock easily and quite well. The thickness is acceptable. The edges can be made using the built in edge stips which can also be removed if required.
I am concerned about their longevity and would certainly never use them in an area where ther was heavy foot traffic (like a lounge/living room). They could be used in a bedroom but, and it’s a big but, if you stand furniture on them, the interlocking sections start to lift which, although not necessarily causing a trip hazard, it would certainly add to the speedy wear of the surface. I note that one reviewer has used them in the car boot and felt that was a great idea.
My second concern is about their slipperiness. If you’re wearing socks/tights and no slippers, I hope you are good at ice skating and keeping your balance, they are very slippery. Also, they can be slippery if you wear smooth-soled slippers
Overall, I’m glad I’ve got them to try out, but once worn, would not replace.
