Cons: maller than advertized
" This product is average quality. The edges are not very straight, making it difficult to keep an equal margin. Lastly, the product is stated as being 15sq mtrs, but the roll I purchased had only 13.8 metres! I had to use the packagiong of the laminate flooring for last required 1.2 metres! "

Pros: versatile & flexible, cheap, soft & insulates
Cons: bit iffy, bit thin
" This laminate is good value for money only problem is it's a bit thin so i usually just use 2 layers which works well even on slightly uneven floors. It's a bit all over the place so i tend to tack one end down while I work so that it doesn't move as I'm laying the flooring on top. "

" Being so thin, it can be a bit fiddly to handle, especially when laying down the first piece. Even after that, it tends to curl up at the sides so you have to cut it and tape it down in places. Once it's down though, it does the job. "
