I have used the Appalachian engineered flooring. No issues. The boards were exceptionally long (as opposed to getting a bunch of 16" long pieces), every board was good (some brands will tell you to allow for them giving you 10%-15% scrap), pieces were flat and straight. Have not had any issues with the finish (7 layers of urethane with ceramic dust).
