I haven't used it, but I did order free samples from this website: http://www.builddirect.com/Result.aspx?N=0&Ntk=Primary&Ntt=porcelain+wood+look+tile&Nty=1&D=porcelain+wood+look+tile&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Dx=mode+matchallpartial

I have to tell you the tiles are beautiful, I'm very impressed. They will send you up to five free samples with free shipping. They're in Canada, I'm in the U.S. and the samples arrived the next day.

We have installed this product for numerous clients, and we have not had any complaints. It is a wonderful material--looks like wood without the maintenance! It will be cooler to the touch since it is tile, but it extremely durable. If you choose a through-body porcelain material, then, if by chance the tile were to chip, it will hardly be noticeable since the color runs throughout the entire depth of the tile. Just be sure that your installer lays the tiles very close to one another so that the grout lines are very thin.

This company has a wonderful product--it looks EXACTLY like wood when it is on the floor: http://mediterranea-usa.com/usa/american-naturals/
They have many other options besides this "American Naturals" line.

Best of luck with your project!

Yes, it's great stuff, very durable, very attractive, here is a bath I did a few years ago (floor is wood look tile) , please don't mind some of the other design choices, not my finest hour.
