I saw this snap edge tile at a local home center, the one with the blue triangle out front,and wanted to know if anybody has it and what the drawbacks might be. It's around $4.00sqft and looks pretty good from what I saw. It is REAL tile on top of pressboard, just laydown a rubberized underlayment and place the tile boards on top of that and snap it together, there are 2 tiles per board. Including the underlayment $15 roll and their $10.00 a bottle grout product it could get a lil pricey. But i think i can use my own sanded grout and roof felt for an underlayment. Final thought, Can roof felt be used "indoors" as a "SAFE" moisture barrier underlayment for a floor? My concern, is anything toxic given off from roof felt?

Looked around on the web and found NOTHING but bad things about this product, but thanks for any more input anybody has.

You saw the horror stories so no need to rehash that. You have to use their grout to maintain the warranty, given the history of this stuff, you might not get to the grout phase before it starts to break apart.
