I totally agree with Rattus. My floor is not Pergo, it's Quick-Step.
If I had it to do all over again, I'd scrimp and save to get the hardwood. This is my first home that I own, and I wanted the floor done before I moved in. (There was nasty carpet down that I truly hated originally.) In retrospect, I would have rather have the carpet until I was able to manage real wood.
