What to expect with cheaper laminate floor?

We have just bought a new home and we are planning to replace the carpet by laminate floor.

Just went to Lumber Liquidator, HD. The one we liked the most is also one of the cheapest (Dream home pewter oak 8mm thick made in Germany - $1.49/sq ft discounted at 0.99$/ sq ft). I cant find any review of this product (4 positive reviews on LL's website that's it). We may be reselling in 3 or 4 years, hence we dont want to invest too much but we still want to avoid a crappy product that will wear quickly (chip, scratch, dents).

I would be interested in getting your feedback on this specific product or at least on similar 8mm cheap laminate floor?

What to expect? Lower resale value on your home. Don't cheap out, look at a engineered hardwood and do it right the first time. You won't get stung when you go to sell and you will have a beautiful floor while you live there.

Welcome to the forums.

I didn't find any reviews on your specific product but there was discussion on Dream Line flooring products. Dream Home laminate from LL
