I installed the floating floors in my office, they look great and were easy to install. I disagree if 1 board needs replacing just snap it out and snap in another one, unless it is an outer piece. The hollow funny sound of walking on my floating floors sounds a little cheap. Don't get me wrong, I like my floating floors but there are better solutions. Those solutions will cost you and more complicated to install. I would recommend finding someone that has them installed and do a test walk.
