Thoughts on Armstrongs Luxe planks?

Took a peek at some Armstrong planks today and think they look a lot more like wood than the allure I have looked at. I'm confused about 2 things. I was at Lowes and the kind I saw was called Exquisite I looked on their site and didn't see this one on their under the luxe planks and lowes had it on back order another site showed it cleranced. the woman said they were waiting to get it is so I was confused if it was a new line or a line on the way out. Anyway I do think the armstrong looks more authentic and was wondering what experiences people have had. I have read all the Allure success and horror stores but not much about Armstrong.

IMHO, the Armstrong is better than Allure, but still a temporary floor covering.

Rusty I's like to put something in the livingroom that will look nice and get me to where my kids are older and it will be worth putting in a real hardwood floor. Right now they are young and they spill crap and don't always clean it up or tell me right away. They come in from the pool dripping wet and leave a trail of drip puddles on their way to their room. We currently have a large dog and they run through the house with him. As much as real hardwood appeals to me I have no doubt they would mess it all up. No doubt they would ruin laminate. So a nice LVT plank seems like the best option. Its a wood sub floor and I can feel a few nails popping p through the VERY old worn carpet so I'm betting I need to hammer those back down and lay a 1/4 of plywood over it to get it all nice and level. The floating LVT planks sound good because of the ability to cut a messed up one out and replace it. I have looked around and so far Armstrong is the only one I have seen that doesn't scream FAKE lol. So when you say temporary how temporary are you talking here?
