What Do I Need To Know about Porcelain or Ceramic "Wood" Tiles?

Q: We are considering installing porcelain or ceramic tiles with a "real wood" look for the flooring in a property we rent out. We like the look of wood but are considering alternatives so the flooring is more durable for potential renters (families with kids, pets, etc.) and easier to maintain over time.

What are some good brands? What is the average price range? Are there any special considerations we should be aware of? Do you have them and do you like them?
