Red face Your experience with Strand woven Bamboo

I am putting down strand woven bamboo in our living room and am wondering if anyone can fill me in on their durability experience with the following products:
Trillium : Exotic Walnut
Eco Timber: Strandwoven poplar
Simple Floor: Ristretto
Thank You for your help!

Even Though You Didn't Specifically Ask About It

On the off chance it helps--I just had installed 240 sf of Ecotimber strand woven bamboo (not their SW poplar). One point to make clear: Janka scale hardness and scratch-resistance are two different things. Sure, I can whack my floor with a ball peen hammer and not make a dent. OTOH, I had no trouble scratching it the other day dragging a wooden music stand a few feet across it. And the scratches are a nice conspicuous white. My floor looks lovely, and in the end I wouldn't have chosen a different product (esp. at the 3.99 sf I paid). Just be nice to it.

Yes, the finish scratches! The material dents!

That goes for all wood, bamboo & cork.

Waterbased finish, shows the scratches more than an oil/wax finish.
