I'm really surprised at how easy this product was to work with. Admittedly, I was lucky that my basement had a wood framing in place to lower the ceiling below the plumbing/electrical/duct work (the previous ceiling were tiles that were stapled to the wood frame).. The project took me a couple of days (working sporadically), and looks awesome. The material is very flexible, but I could see it being more of a challenge if you're using traditional acoustic tiles that are rigid. I use ceilume tiles, which are really flexible, so everything came together smoothly. I'd use this product again for a quick basement update.
We had an area in our basement that didn't have enough clearance for a drop ceiling . This was the perfect solution, but if your ceiling joists are not perfect (my house is 60 years old, nothing is perfectly level) an awful lot of shimming is necessary or your result will be wavy. We spent a lot of time leveling and are pleased with our result.
These tiles are gorgeous on our old remodeled plaster ceiling, but were very hard to install. I know many of these types of plastic tiles can be glued. This design however, is concave in the middle making it hard to stick to the ceiling. These are better suited for drop ceilings. Note: the only kind of glue we found that finally worked was liquid cement
