I installed it in 3 rooms this year and really like it. It looks just like wood. I went with a floating plank because I’m ademently against glue on concrete.

I had my share

I have installed a few different brands.
Life Proof at HD is the easiest and mosy scratch resistant imo
I installed about 1200 sqft in about
A day and a half and its good stuff.
Had it down for about 8 months now.
No complaints.
But if you have uneven floors any of it can be a pain to get to fully seat together.
Get the tool
Watch the video
Take 30 minutes to go thru a little trile and error.
You will be satisfied with the results

I did this also with some from floor and decor. I am by no means a handy person with tools or building stuff. I tackled the project and it was really quite easy. Looks great, water proof, lab proof. I did not glue it down. It wasn't made to be and I didn't want to mess with it. Very happy we did it.

The free floating floors are very popular and easy to install. Plus if you have to make a repair it comes apart easily. If your slab is uneven be sure and use some type of floor prep to level it out. Ardex Feather Finish and Uzin make great products for this. If you want to get really accurate with the slab, they both make a self leveling prep you can pour on and it will totally level the slab.

Question for you. Are you wanting a vinyl plank that glues directly to the slab or one of the free floating planks? Some advantages to the free floating are, non permanent installation and cushion backings for a more comfortable feel and sound reduction.
I wish I could answer that question right now, but we are remodeling our showroom and all of our sample books, every product we carry, has been packed away in a warehouse until the construction is complete.
You can go online to these manufacturers websites and see their products and read the specs.
Some of these have embossing in them like woodgrain, some look like hand scrapped planks. They come in all different widths too.

Two things you want to find out before you purchase. Where is it made and what thickness is the wear layer. In commercial we never use anything less than a 20 mil wear layer. Definitely do not go below 12 mil on the wear layer.
I would not buy any products coming from China.

Astro#2 is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I would recommend the floating style over the stick down.
