Smart Glacier 23x73mm Mosaic Tile is rated

Look great minus the inconsistencies
These tiles were ordered for a small cloakroom basin splash back. I only ordered 4 sheets for another as backup. Dispite ordering so little I was amazed to fine that 3 of the sheets were of poor quality. One had a chip on the corner whilst the others had tiles that weren't aligned correctly giving uneven spacing.
I would have returned the sheets and asked for replacements if it hadn't taken two weeks to make it to the store. Apparently these are special order tiles.
Thankfully I managed to hide the chipped corner behind the tap and cover the damage with a line of sealant. The misaligned tiles were only saved by the fact we were using white grout, as if it had been grey or black it would have stood out like a sore thumb.
All in all I am slightly disappointed in Topps Tiles. We have used mosaic tiles before (60+ sheets) and understand not very sheet will be perfect but for 3 out of 5 sheets to be damaged/misaligned is poor.
