I have not had this long enough to predict long term wear, but see no reason to doubt it will be excellent. Both sides are the same colors and the same markings. Markings are clear and show up well. Cutting is smooth. The mat lies perfectly flat and doesn't scoot out of place. There is no unpleasant odor. I thought there was initially, but now believe it was from the plastic bag it was in. I believe I'll have many years of use out of this product. I have had an Olfa mat for at least 20 years and finally managed to damage it. This new one seems at least as good and possibly better. It's a little thicker.
