I have used these panels for everything from underlayment for floors to cabinet sides and as wall paneling in a mobile home. I have been 100% pleased each and every time. Makes remodeling easier. Can be used as a filler anywhere including outdoors. Must be primed with an oil based primer and then painted with an outdoor paint if being used outdoors. Recommend using primer in kitchen or bath applications.
Pros: Multi Use, High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Light Weight, Seals Well, Good Shape

Review 3 for Utility Panel (Common: 1/8 In. x 4 Ft. x 8 Ft.; Actual: 0.106 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.)
I have no Idea how any of the reviews has relevance as this is 1/8 in Luan Plywood. The kind used on doors a 10 year old could punch a hole through. It has nothing to do with strength, underlayment, or anything else especially beauty. Just the thinnest cheapest lightest plywood available at a home center. I really preferred another stores 1/8 Birch but when Thailand had a shortage and stopped shipping, they found it wasn't a big enough seller to go with Luan. Who would make a cheap door when you can buy one for $23.00? I suppose someone could use it for a pressboard cabinet liner, but it still is Luan!
Reasonable Usage: The sheets can be scored with a box cutter and snapped like drywall. I use them to reinforce cardboard containers or make bottom skids for heavier loads without adding weight. Nothing more for me.
Pros: Light Weight, lightest cheapest 4 x 8, score and snap (if you are good), no sawing
Cons: looks like luan, lots of edge or straping damage

Review 4 for Utility Panel (Common: 1/8 In. x 4 Ft. x 8 Ft.; Actual: 0.106 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.)
From the two great reviews, I figured this would be a great product, I was wrong. Boards are flimsy and crack easily. Very light weight and not worth the money at all. Sticker clearly displays, "made in China". I would never recommend this to anyone.
Cons: cheaply made, flimsy
