For those of us who do product photography, these are great to use as backdrops and won't fall apart as easily as some of the paper options out there. :)
I was just thinking about this myself and will pick up a few this weekend.

Did I time warp back to the 70s?

Wood panels were the in thing for finishing basement walls back then.
Pretty much

I'd pick up 2 for the wall behind my PC setup... but @ 4 x 8 feet... it won't fit in my hatchback X_X
Plus... the crappy weather isn't helping xD

I wasn't around back then so I'm not sure what they did in the 70's but personally I would avoid decking out an entire basement with these panels. As an accent wall though, I think they look fantastic!

These are more like the ones used in the 70s and sadly they are not on sale for 50% off :)

Fortunately for my application in my basement game room it would just be an accent wall so I can get rid of the exposed fiber glass and plastic vapor barrier. I don't really need to finish the walls behind my pinball machines because you don't really notice it anyways.

Just curious... how do you guys plan to get these home? They'll only fit in a truck at 4x8 feet ??...

In a truck...hahaha

Lowe's will rent their vans which will fit these panels if you don't have a buddy with a truck.

Also, I know HD will cut lumber down with little to no charge but I don't know if Lowe's offers this service or if one would recommend having it done to these panels. This would certainly make them a much more manageable if they were cut down to 4x4 size...Any advice out there?

Do the edges happen to be finished with whatever pattern is on the front face?

I want to hang/mount a single panel to the wall to act as a back drop for something I'm putting in front of it. My concern would be the edges are now exposed and not sure what the finish is.
edges are just brown MDF color unfortunately.

keep in mind you only want to make cuts where those cut edges end up in a corner or something. otherwise the patterns won't line up. Also drywall is never straight and plumb. I had to make my edge cuts based on measurements. cuts always ended up at slight angle for example.

Thanks for the reply, I might have to pass on these then.

On another note, has anyone wall mounted Astro turf or similar product? Tips?

The trick with panels like these is to install them from the center of your wall and move left / right. Make the final cuts at the corner of the wall. When done properly the should be little to no gaps or imperfections at the seams from factory cuts.
