Take samples home. I strongly recommend visiting a good local retail store to ask their opinions on products. Those that are of interest to you and seem to be in your budget need to be signed out and taken home to be viewed in both natural and artificial light and in the surroundings where the product will be installed. Independent stores will show the products under the actual true manufacturer label making it much easier to comparison shop. Buying groups such as Carpet One, Flooring America, Abbey, Floors to Go, and the big box stores have most of their products privately labeled, making it nearly impossible to comparison shop. This is done for obvious reasons. Ask for a bottom line price. The best thing you can do is mention that you will not be making a decision that day and that you are checking prices. Mention that you are not the type of person to bounce back and forth and that you would like their bottom line price right from the start. The worst thing that you can do as a consumer is state that you will only buy from that store. That will cost you money as it assures the store you are not shopping, and flooring is a competitive business.
Make sure buckling or warping does not occur. Laminate floor is sensitive to water and moisture. That is to say, when exposed to either, your floor could get damaged. Buckling or warping happens if there is much moisture in the air, there is too much water on the floor, or there is water coming out from the subfloor because of a not-so-reliable moisture defense. There are cases, however, that this kind of damage is just a result of a low quality laminate floor product. Always be prepared to be bugged by mold and mildew problems. Aside from buckling or warping, moisture also carries molds and mildew problems to your laminated tiles. In this case, it is important to know whether or not there is too much moisture in the floor area and, if there is, you should be able to get rid of this moisture problem or else it will constantly haunt you with mold and mildew issues.
