Metroflor Hybrid flooring

Has anyone used this flooring? Am considering it for a condo renovation. A friend installed in her floor and there is a clicking sound when you walk on it, perhaps because of the floating planks? Anyway, like the look and idea, just wondered what real-life experiences have been.

In general laminate flooring creates a clicking sound which is very annoying especially to your neighbours. Many condos have express rules about installing sound absorbing underlayment when laminate or wood floors are installed in condos. Laminate flooring is a plastic coated photo graph of wood laid on top of a strand board and that's why it creates a clicking sound. Engineered wood floors are real wood - thinner veneer glued to strand board and they don't make the same sound. I feel Engineered wood floors are fantastic, enviromentally sound and offer all kinds of unique wood species and finishes not available with solid wood floors.
