I did my research and found that porcelain tiles were both very durable and stain resistant and decided this would work for my kitchen counter. I love the shiny marble resemblance and can't afford the real thing so this was the next best choice. However 3/4 of the way through laying it I discovered it stains. I was using an eye liner pencil to write on tiles for the contractor and after 30 min and 6 different chemicals I finally got it off with vinegar and soda. I'm a little worried it may have taken off some of the coating but it is not nearly as noticeable as the "back splash ^" I had written on it. I went to buy sealer immediately. Home Depot salesman did not believe that this occurred on porcelain tile and told me only the grout would need seal but I finally convinced him the tiles do as well. The counters are done but not in everyday use yet so I will update later on durability. Crossing fingers seal will protect the beautiful tiles.
Pros: Looks Great
Cons: Difficult to Clean, no bullnose available

I just had this product installed 5 months ago. It was used as flooring in an indoor sunroom and a bath. Out of the many tiles I looked at, this one stood out. It's amazing how much it looks like natural marble. I also like the rectangular size, something different besides square. It is easy to clean, just a vacuum and a light mopping. I would not hesitate to use this product again.
Pros: Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Easy to Clean, Comfortable, Great Accent, Looks High End, Effective
