Let me rephrase. The example on the M3 is egregiously inaccurate. The little swatch is closer to real.

I kind of expect a certain number of things in my daily life to be egregious, now.

Tom, here is a pic of the top of my Boston Cherry M3 and the Vermont Maple on the right. Does seem to be a little different than on the products page. I really like the Vermont Maple.



Here is another shot.



And, one more.





Not sure if this helps. Probably best to get a sample and check it in your home.

Thanks merchman! I've never seen a vinyl/wood comparison like that before. In my view the pics also speak to the quality of the vinyl. No wonder one would be hard pressed to tell the difference!

That's not vinyl/wood, that's vinyl/vinyl.
