Ceiling max

I am attempting my first install of CeilingMax and finding it extremely difficult and time consuming.
Runners are too thin and are difficult to install straight. I ended up making to spacer gigs to keep them straight and parallel.
Cross T are also too thin therefore sag and do not support the weight of the tile.
Putting in the last row is VERY difficult. Best answer is to cut 8ft pieces into 2ft to snap in for each individual tile. I dread ever having to remove a panel.
I am a seasoned DYI and would not recommend this product.
I may attempt to purchase a sample of CeilingLink to verify that it works. If not, I have to go back to conventional drop ceiling.

Welcome to the forums! I detached your post from the 7 year old thread so you would have more exposure to advice. Is there something specific we can help you with on the CeilingMax installation? Why did you choose CeilingMax over standard 1" cross T member ceiling grid?
