Bamboo is a great renewable resource, unfortunately it isn't a wood, it's a grass. And so it is much softer than usual wood floors and dents or chips very easily. The Strand bamboo is almost twice as hard as oak-a wood known for it's durability. I would recommend it over Lumber Liquidators other bamboo floors because you get a renewable resource as well as a very durable floor product. I can't speak on their installation however. Hope this helps!

I like bamboo flooring. People had different experiences with Strand bamboo from Lumber Liquidators. Some love it, some had an issue with fumes after installation. Here is the thread of misc. feedback you might find useful: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/bamboo/msg0516034526…

Bamboo itself is a great renewable source and makes a fantastic flooring! You may want to inquire about how a particular brand is made. Sometimes it's what is being added to flooring product to keep the shape is what may cause some fumes...

Good luck!

I do not have an opinion on the materials you mentioned. However, clients of mine have been happy with lumber liquidator's installation, which has typically been the best bid as well.
