I was afraid it would be shipped rolled up and I would have difficulty getting it to flatten, (I had read reviews of this happening) but it was shipped flat between two large cardboards. Very pleased with the product. It will protect my new flooring.

Does the job
I am very happy with the Cleartex-AdvantageMat-Smooth-Back-Chairmat-for-Hard-Floors. I actually ordered two and am so very glad I did. They are perfect for what I was looking for. They don't slip or move around on the floors. There is no smell as some have stated. I had them shipped to my home and they came flat so there is no curling.
Great for the price
Was very pleased with the mat, especially for the price compared to others I looked at. I can't speak to its durability as I have only recently put the mat down. I have it on hardwood floors and it is perfect for that. I had read one review about a "smell", but I detect no odor whatsoever. I have a problem with a lot of chemical odors, but not with this mat. It's flexible enough, lays flat and just does the job!
Protects rugs without those plastic cleats
Until this purchase, I had been buying a similar product at Staples. This unit is slightly smaller in size, but it was nearly $20 cheaper. It does a fabulous job of protecting my rug, and it doesn't have those plastic cleats on the bottom that dig into your rug to secure it in place. This mat stays in place anyway. The other reason I like this mat is because unlike the ones I was purchasing at Staples, it is one whole piece. The other had a seam in the middle, which is where the plastic would always crack. I would suggest, however, having this product shipped to your home instead of site-to-store. It's a rather large and awkward package to try and juggle.
This is a quality product which serves the intended purpose. It replaced a previously purchased product which was worn out from use. My only negative observation has been, that due to the totally flat & somewhat slippery underside, the product shifts a little bit from where it was originally placed & has to be periodically moved back into place.
Great hard floor chair mat!
After reading the reviews, I was hesitant to purchase this clear mat. It was rolled (not accordion folded) in a large box when received at the store. Upon arriving home, I removed it from the box, unrolled it and laid it on the back porch. It flattened out in a couple hours with only a porch chair on one edge. I brought it inside soon thereafter due to the weather getting colder and put it in front of the computer desk. It laid perfectly flat and is the floor protection desired. I expect it to outlast me. The quality, shipping and price made a very good experience for us senior citizens.
chair mat limitations
Chair wheels and floor under mat are critical. Our floor is Mexican tile with wide grout. The wheels on the chair are small and the mat is not firm enough to allow wheels to roll easily. The size, design, and mat itself is fine. I am looking into changing the chair wheels, and keeping the mat.
Very bad experience
Order placed on 1-27-13 (a Sunday), I received email notification item was ready to pick up at my local store on 2-8-13. This was a total of 13 days, or 10 business days after order was placed. In my opinion, there is no excuse for it taking that long on an item that was in-stock when ordered. Most items I order when shopping on the web are received within a week from other vendors. Chair mat was packaged in a long, large rectangular box and I assumed it had been rolled up to place in the box for shipping. Upon opening the package I discovered the chair mat had actually been folded up accordion style for shipping instead of simply rolling it up (Why in the world would someone do this??) I have had the chair mat lying in the sun on my pool deck for 3 days now....still not even close to being flat. (Florida, close to 80 right now) Item is being returned. It MAY have been O.K. had it simply been rolled up for shipment, but we will never know, it is ruined now. Your experience may well depend on who actually places the item in the box to ship!
A wrinkled peice of plastic
The mats came in quick enough, but were rolled folded like an accordion. One even had a couple of fold in it that simply will not come out. They would not lay flat even after weighting them down for over 24 hours. They have been on the office floor for over a week now and still will not flatten out. I am returning them ASAP.
Came folded up so bad that it will not go flat
I bought this based on the many positive reviews here and hoping that when the thing arrived it wouldn't be too folded up. It arrived quickly in a very large long narrow box. Nothing else in the box except the mat and a shipping slip. It was folded over on itself 4 times. I left it at room temperature near the heat vent for extra warmth for 2 days. No change to the folds. Still folded up tight. I then laid three 50 pound bags of driveway salt on it to try to flatten it out left them on for days. DIDN'T WORK. still folded up badly. No way this thing will ever go flat. It's going back.
