how is vinyl resilient plank flooring?

i just put in engineered hardwood in my dining room and now i'm looking to replace carpet in my family room and need options other than carpet. i'd like to put in hardwood or engineered but the family room is the room that my kids and dogs spend the most time in. i don't want to put that in because i know it will get damaged, dogs scratching it, and various juices, paints, etc.

i need an option that will hold up to that wear and tear. from what i read laminate won't work, but i found vinyl resilient planks. from what i read they're pretty durable and can withstand water, won't scratch. i've found some planks that look like wood and is in 4" x 36" and 6" x 36" planks.

has anyone had any experience with this? or does anyone have any other options? i'll be doing this myself so i don't want to do anything too complicated.

Try the search feature. You will find hundreds of posts, pro and con. Mostly con.
For instance. Thoughts and opinions on "Trafficmaster Allure" flooring from Home Depot?
