Tecsun Laminate?

Has anyone ever heard of this brand and can give any opinion on it in terms of quality and ease of installation?

I am looking at installing 520 sq ft into my place and saw a pattern in it I really liked at Lowe's the other day. However, the guy there knew nothing of the brand and said it's a new brand for them in the laminate area. Research on line shows little to now help. From what I can tell it's a 12mm thick laminate and comes with a 12 year commercial/25 year home warranty. With such a strong commercial warranty I figure it must have a good "wear layer" because I've never seen one over 7 years on the commercial side.

I originally wanted one of the Armstrong Grand Illusions however some that I've read on here it doesn't sound too positive. So my next bet is a Pergo XP/Max line depending on what I can find out on the Tecsun brand.

The higher mm grade laminate the better warranty, more durable.
I never installed that brand but sounds right.
Just make shore your subfloor is ok for laminate you stagger your seams 12" and keep the expansion gap perimeter 1/4" and should be.
