What the crap!?

Two days ago, Lumber Liquidators had a GREAT laminate florring that DH and I both liked, with the pad attached, for $0.99/sq. ft.  Today, it is GONE....totally gone from their website.  So, DH told me to get and install whatever I want; he's tired of looking.  I'm SERIOUSLY considering doing the $0.39/sq foot clearance one w/ a 10 year warranty.  Its just for our bedroom, which we only use for sleeping and...ahem.  So, its not like its a high traffic area, and its a VERY pretty floor; defnitely doesn't LOOK dirt cheap (I've looked at it in person and LOVED it).  He's just convinced that, because of the price, it won't hold up.

WWYD?   Would you save the money, get the one he said no to and just no tell him?  LOL  Or would you get something more expensive which you don't like as much just because he THINKS this one won't hold up?  (Bear in mind, this is a truckload clearance item; it does NOT retail for this insanely low price.  Its normally well over $1/sq ft.

I would get the one you like. Just explain that it's not inexpensive because it's cheaply made, just marked down in price. Get someone to tell him what it would usually go for.

I would get it. Just because it's marked down doesn't necessarily mean crappy quality.
