Pleased with Size and Surface
Reviewed in the United States on August 31, 2019
Pros: I've used this for about 10 hours now, and have some definite thoughts...first, I love the size. It extends about a foot on each side of my keyboard and 17 generous inches to the back, giving the desk a more finished appearance. I write descriptions of vintage and antique items and sometimes these items are a bit dusty, rusty, etc., and the mat is large enough to catch it all, plus it's a snap to wipe off. So, A+ for size and surface. The backside is somewhat like suede and the slight roughness creates a surface that doesn't move, so my sense is it's not going to slowly migrate; something that my little placemat thingy constantly did.
OK, now to the single Con: The edges are a normal right-angle material cut, and it's UNPLEASANT on wrists/arms/hands. Unpleasant enough that I've draped a little bit of material all along the front where my wrists/arms/hands meet the edge. At this point, I'm contemplating a more permanent solution...not sure yet. Having said this, and it did cost a star, it still doesn't detract from the overall attractiveness and usefulness of the mat.
