Mohawk laminate flooring (very unhappy)

I decided on the Mohawk flooring because their flooring had 4 wide planks as opposed to 4-5 narrow planks per board. When the boards are placed end to end, the planks don't always line up.
The plank on the end is much wider which throws off all the other planks.

According to Mohawk, there is an "industry standard" and this crapy looking floor is normal.

Anyone else seen this in Mohawk or any other laminate flooring?

Was the price right for your budget? What was the determining factor that made you go with the Mohawk. Mohawk makes carpet not laminate. They have a third party make it "Cheap" and put their name on it. Where did you purchase it?

There reason for Mohawk was the type of simulated wood. They had the only wood we could find with wide planks and most varying colors within the laminate.

As far as the cost, it was a bit more than the average.

Here is a reply from Mohawk about the pattern not matching:

"Pattern register is another matter, all laminate floors
have a tolerance of +- 4mm for end to end pattern line up (registering), we try to keep our tolerance at +- 2mm, but industry standards dictate the first tolerance value, it is common to a laminate floor."

Mohawk laminate

Most manufacturers have good, better, best levels of quality and warranties. Because more and more folks are going with hard surface floor coverings, companies like Mohawk, who are probably losing market share in the flooring industry, have added tile, laminate, vinyl, and hardwood to their lineup. Carpets Done Wright may have hit the nail on the head. I no longer sell Mohawk laminate.
