We love the look of these tiles, smaller and longer than the standard subway tiles. Gives a modern twist to subway tile. I agree with the other reviewer who said that the white of these tiles has a gray undertone. We used them for a kitchen backsplash to go with gray and white quartzite countertops (have a marble look, but are quartzite). The only problem with them is that many of the tiles are wavy. I only notice it when it's nighttime and the under-counter lights are on. Our installer pointed it out in the beginning of our project, that many of the tiles have a noticeable curve. I try to think of it as giving the backsplash a little extra texture, but do not expect it to be completely flat. We used a light gray grout, which we really like the look of. I think we could have gone a little darker without it looking too grid-like and avoided some splatter staining behind our stove top (we put the tile all the way around the backsplash with no breaks).
First time tiling and purchased these tiles ... thought they would be on a mesh together, but came individually in separate boxes. Not one tile was broken or chipped and very easy to cut with wet saw. Very satisfied with this purchase.
I used this for my kitchen backsplash. I wanted white subway tile in a smaller scale than typically 3x5's, so this fit the bill. The tile is a true white which veers more toward the cool side than warm. For example, it's much more cool than the Dal tile subway tile from ****, if you're looking for a frame of reference. It's not glossy but has a nice satin finish. It looks great with my calcatta brazil quartize countertops, which are cool toned with grey veining (I used a white grout but in retrospect would have used a pale grey because the backsplash reads a little too white to me right not). The tile came packaged well and no breakage. They were a little more narrow than I expected but not big deal (I was expecting a 2" width but the box says 1.9", and my measuring tape showed more like 1.7"). Overall very happy with the product and service from overstock.

WE bought this to be the main tile in our bathroom remodel. It is excellent. Beautiful color and finish. I just recommend double checking the square footage necessary as we had to reorder shortly before the project began.
