I'm referring to laminate. Is the snap together stuff too good to be true? I can get a good price on Armstrong, and frankly the easier installation is enticing. Thoughts?

The stuff is very installer friendly and some installers are bragging how much money they can make from it. Installation time is one half and even more in some cases compared to the messy glue type floors. How successful it will be, may still have the jury out on this one.

the snap together ones are really cool, I would suggest using glue if it is in an area with moisture (bathroom, kitchen) it is a little bit more difficult to insall but it is worth the time to do it right.

Hey good news! Thanks everybody. I figure, even if snap together wears faster than glue together, it still outlasts carpet. That's gotta be worth something.
