This mat is far superior to my first purchase by Lorell. I guess you get what you pay for - Lorell costs about half the price of Cleartex. Of course, now that I know that the mat should definitely have polycarbonate in it's material, I won't make that mistake again.
I read tons of desk mat reviews before purchasing this product. I am hoping that the product lives up to its warranty and guarantee. I like its initial presentation. It is transparent letting my carpet show through nicely. My chair slides about effortlessly. I have had no problems with it creeping BUT placed a corner under a desk leg. If this mat holds up, I will be very pleased. Be aware that the ties holding the mat rolled up for shipping are VERY tight. STAND BACK when releasing! All in all, I am extremely pleased with this mat. But time will tell as to its longevity!
I have seen many different options and most of them are cheaply made and of poor quality. This floor mat is EXCELLENT- great quality and works very well in my home office (on carpet). I wanted a larger one, and for the price- this is exactly what I was looking for. Very happy.
I had purchased a wood protector a year or so ago. It looked nice but inevitably broke down and started splintering. Though I liked the look it tended to catch the chair wheels on the seams and that only got worse with time. I didn't like the idea of something less natural looking but this protector got great reviews for looks and sturdiness so I bought one. Other than having to be careful getting it out of the box because it was rolled and snapped out abruptly when released from the restraints, I was very pleased to see the knobs on the bottom weren't sharp like a lot of them are at the local office store. I put it down and it nearly disappears so the look is very natural. For all of that it seems very sturdy and I think it will last a long time. Lastly, when the chair rolls around on the mat, it does so effortlessly and without catching on anything. That's so nice after the broken movement on the wooden one. I'd definitely recommend this one for your home.

This floor pad replaces my vinyl pad. The vinyl was cracked and coming apart because it was from a previous house and rated for thinner carpet. The polycarbonate pad is thinner and stronger than the vinyl. It does not deflect as much as the vinyl pad, and is smoother. My 5-caster desk chair rolls easier. I am a little over 200 lbs, and the polycarbonate supports my weight with no problem. It has not slipped at all. Polycarbonate is also known as Lexan, a high strength engineering plastic. It costs a bit more, but should last much longer than vinyl. I have been using it for a month, and it has been working great.
