Thoughts and opinions on "Trafficmaster Allure" flooring from Home Depot?

Here's my 2 bits on allure trafficmaster - I installed the product in 2 of my bathrooms, used about 6 boxes total for the 2 bathrooms, so my bathrooms are about 10x6 or so. I was lazy and just laid the trafficmaster over the existing tile. (yes, sorry to those real DIY'ers who this would offend). the trafficmaster stuck perfectly, and never popped in the 2 yrs that i lived with the floors. (recently sold the house). So in the bathroom, with 2 toddler girls, the floor was great. a bit warmer in the winter than the tile and gave the bathroom a somewhat updated look. never had issues with the popping. my worst issue was figuring out how to transition the floor at the ends, to make it look finished.

My sister used trafficmaster in her basement. I didnt see how the guy installed it, but i think it was either directly onto the concrete floor? her basement is about 25x15' so it was a much larger install and after 6 months, some of the seams started coming up.

so i'm guessing the larger applications would probably need some more maintenance and glueing post install. my small bathroom which i didnt really roll with anything after install, went down fine, no popping seams.

Many had problems with trafficmaster in basements as it traps moisture under it causing mold problems.

I have to get rid of my trafficmaster after 2 weeks on condo floor because it's buckeling and causing tripping problems. Stay away
