Bamboo VS Hardwood Flooring

We are thinking of installing bamboo floors in our family and living rooms. What are the pros and cons? How do they compare to oak floors? The hubby and I will do this with possible help from a neighbor who rehabs houses. Thank you in advance.

My parents had bamboo flooring installed last summer. I'm almost sure it was solid (not laminate). I grew up with hardwood floors. Their new bamboo floors are not as hard as I remember our floors being when I was a kid. They scratch/dent more easily than I recall. I don't know what brand name they got, but it came from Home Depot.
