Floating floors are ghetto but sometimes all you can do ..

Glue down will sound and feel better. It can be repaired no problem.
Quality wood wont be ruined by a spill or 2 that is quickly cleaned up.
If you have a animal that pees and craps everywhere, well maybe vinyl is for you.
They cut out the sections and re-glue them. It sucks but is done all the time.

For the best job, Have the floor leveled with self-leveler first.
Make sure your installer uses the proper vapor barrier and glue for YOUR product otherwise the results can be catastrophic.
