Rated 5 out of 5�by Andre Way better than the plastic mats
I tried 2 plastic mats before I found this one. Both of the plastic ones dented in a short time, probably less than an hour. This one rocks. No denting at all after a good week's use. My only complaint would be that it does shift around on the carpet a tiny bit, but it's not hard to take my chair off and move it back. I've only had to do that once in a week - so this is a very minor issue. I'm sure I can find something that will make it "grab" the carpet and not move around but I haven't even looked.
It's also a nice looking mat. I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5�by PDCue Nice looking & seems sturdy
We've just had this chair mat for a week or so, but so far it meets our expectations and is nicer to look at than the office-style vinyl mats. It sits on carpet and doesn't move or creep around. We are pleased with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5�by freelance Good mat, but finish is not durable
I've had this mat for about three months now. I work at my desk roughly eight hours a day, seven days a week, so it gets a lot of use. The mat is on top of low-profile carpet, as recommended. I have the kind of casters recommended.
A couple of weeks ago, the finish started flaking off where the wheels of my chair are most often rolling. Flakes of the finish have gotten all over the carpet around the mat, and I pick them up as I notice them.
Although the finish flakes off in places, the surface underneath is not damaged. I wish the manufacturer had left the wood natural, as it seems durable enough without the finish.
The dark cherry is attractive, and other than the problems with the finish flaking off, this is a nice mat. It does not collect condensation underneath, as do the vinyl mats that have teeth underneath.
I would have given this a better rating had the finish not started flaking off. If you have small children or pets that eat anything in sight, you might want to look for a mat that doesn't have this problem.
