I purchased the 8x10 Supreme Felted Dual Surface rug pad and also an 8x10 Durable Hard Surface and Carpet rug pad (which costs a little bit more than the Supreme). The main difference that I have seen was in how they were packaged. The Supreme was sent folded up in a big square, the Durable was sent rolled on a heavy cardboard tube. Both arrived in good condition, and both flattened out equally. I have had them both for about 3 weeks and really can't tell any difference between them except that the felt on the Supreme is perhaps a bit scratchier, and maybe a slight bit thicker than the Durable (which cost more). Save your pennies and get the Supreme, unless you have a desire to have an 8' heavy cardboard tube as well. ;-)
This pad is nice and thick, and it has rubber on one side to grip the floor. No complaints on its function.
Oh, but it stinks. After we unwrapped it, I put it outside for the day. When we brought it back in, the smell was still strong enough to make me nauseated. Back outside it went for another day, and still no better. We finally just put it down. Now that the rug is over it, it doesn't smell anymore, but I don't ever want to pick up that rug, because that stench cannot be anything but harmful.

Because of the heavy traffic in my family room, I needed something that would really hold my area rug in place. I have hard wood floors and the area rug was always roaming. It was a little tough to cut, but the results were impressive. The rug has not moved an inch since I put it in place over a month ago. With the extra pieces, I put them under certain areas of my sectional sofa and they have not moved a bit! I was thrilled with the results. The only negative is that is is not as cushiony as regular carpet padding, but carpet padding will not hold the rug in place at all.

This pad is 1/4-inch thick and is everything that the description says it is. I like my knowing that my rug and floor are protected. The lifetime warranty helped me pick this pad over the others. This pad has added comfort to my beautiful, expensive rug. Overstock has always delivered great products and service, and has once again exceeded my expectations.
This rug pad totally beats those other cheapo pads. It was easy to cut to size using kitchen shears (our rug was slightly smaller than the pad). The rug does not move on our hardwood floors (which was the intention) and the pad offers an extra cushy feel that we don't get from the other cheapo pad (that has since been thrown out). If you get a rug, get this pad - you will be glad you did.

You said the weight of the 8x10 rug pad is 12 lb. Similar rug pads are 25+ lb. Are you sure about the weight? It makes me wonder whether this one is lightweight and inferior to seemingly similar pads from other online sources.judyellen on Apr 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I just got two of these in 8x10 and I think they are much closer to 25 lbs. The 5x7 might be closer to 12-15 lbs. I'm very pleased with the 3 I just received.belralph on Apr 30, 2013
I don't know how much it weighs, but it's sufficiently thick and cushy, no sliding of the rug on top. Works great under our rug.kbleopardgirl on May 4, 2013
It is closer to 25 pounds. It's an excellent pad and I will buy one for all future rugs It makes an astonishing difference.kaphut on May 6, 2013

You say it is safe for hardwood floors but if it is in one place for a long time (let's think a couple of years), will the rubberized surface eventually stick to the floor and damage it, or leave residue, when finally removed?joannajw on Dec 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Are the exact Dimensions of this pad 8'0"x10'0" or is it closer to the standard 7'10" x 10'10" for rugs?rpialum on Oct 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This product is described with these dimensions, so i would say they are a perfect match.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 17, 2012
I have a runner over my carpet, and the runner moves contantly. Is this pad safe for carpet and will it prevent the runner from moving?karastan on Jun 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is made for hard flooring such as tile or wood, but would work on carpet. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2012
I think I read somewhere that if you put it on carpet you should put the rubberized side "up". The felted side should not move on the carpet.lorelei007 on Apr 8, 2013
Part of the description states this is natural rubber and part says it is synthetic. Which is it? Only natural rubber is guaranteed not to mark hardwood.darlasmom on May 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is a dual surface (reversible) rug pad so one side is synthetic, recycled fibers (the side that would go against carpet) that are felted onto a natural rubber (the side that would go against hard surfaces) with a minimal latex adhesion between the two.
The velcro side is the synthetic and the rubber side is natural rubber.overstockcustomercare1 on May 15, 2012
If you have a hard surface flooring (concrete, tile or hardwood), the rubber side goes against the floor. If you have carpet, the felted side goes against the floor. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 10, 2012
