Strong Odor / Very Dense, Stiff Mat.
Listed as odorless, this mat has a very strong vinyl/polyurethane odor. It is also the hardest anti-fatigue mat I have ever seen outside of those 3/8" vinyl mats that are simply anti-slip and not anti-fatigue. It barely compresses at all under my weight (and I weigh just over 200 pounds). I did a quick timed fatigue test and standing on the mat was no better than standing on the floor without the mat - a far different experience than when standing on the softer, commercial anti-fatigue mat we have at work.

This One Walks
I have owned both the Imprint Commercial and Professional mats for over a year. The professional version shifts and moves across my laminate kitchen floor every time I walk across it. I am constantly bending over to straighten it out so I don't end up tripping over it. It is clearly inferior to the Commercial model. That one has a somewhat sticky bottom that stays in place on my laminate floor. They both clean up easily. Another problem, the brown is different looking between the two models. My advice, get the commercial rather than this one. I wish the commercial came in the light tan color to match my kitchen better. I am stuck with the darker brown though.

Safe and so comfortable
I have arthritis in my spine along with age-old disk problems and a tail bone fracture. I live in an efficiency apartment and standing on thin linoleum over a poured concrete floor for 20 minutes to cook and do dishes by hand gave me a lot of pain. This is a God-send. I rarely experience bad pain anymore from just working in my kitchen. I requested a City Health Bureau home safety evaluation and this passed with flying colors. It seems a bit high at first, but as the inspector said, it is heavy and doesn't move. No slipping even when I come into my room with my push cart loaded down. I am so glad I bought it. At this point in my life I am purchasing things which are good and durable and which will help me as I age. This mat really fits those criteria.

Hugely misleading-- Professional NOT as good as Commercial version
Don't be fooled, even though the descriptions for these mats and the CumulusPRO Commercial mats make it seem like the only difference is the rounded edges and the size, these CumulusPRO Professional mats are actually much worse!
I used a Commercial mat for a year and loved it, then moved and got a Professional mat since it's described as the same thing. It's not. If I stand perfectly straight and balanced then I can't tell the difference, but I often stand with my weight shifted to one side or the other (note: I'm under 150lbs)-- and then you can really tell how much more supportive the Commercial mat is. It's just much more resilient than the relatively flimsy/soft Professional mats. Also, the Commercial version has a much nicer nonslip top-- this Professional mat has a weirdly slippery top.
I bought a Commercial mat too just to make sure it wasn't my imagination and compared them side by side-- yup, verified the above. The company needs to make it clear that you are NOT buying the same product in a different size-- the Commercial mat is noticeably better for anyone who uses it for hours a day.

The mat itself seems like it would be a good product
The mat itself seems like it would be a good product. However, the problem is the smell of the thing. It smells like mildew and has a very strong pungent odor. I bought one and then ordered a replacement, and it was exactly the same. The company that makes these must have had a manufacturing problem and got a bad batch.

Take a Risk and Buy This Mat
I have awarded 2 stars only because when you actually stand on the mat, it is comfortable. Otherwise this 20x30 mat is not, repeat not, comparable to the larger "commercial" grade mat by the same company. This smaller one moves around, seemingly at will, and the edges lift up just enough so that a user trips over them consistently. This is not only inconvenient but also, in a kitchen potentially dangerous. I advise any individual who is considering purchase of the so-called "professional" grade mat to go outside and run in the traffic. You may well incur an equal chance of being comfortable and risk free.

I found this item to be hazardous. If you step on the pad about a foot inside the corner it causes the corner to lift up off the floor about an inch. I tripped on it twice before I descovered why I was trippimg.

"No Noxious Smells". Don't Believe it!
The graphic is the product description says "No Noxious Smells". That is NOT the case. I like the mat, love the color, but hate the smell of plastic. I tried to air it out for a while to see if it would dissipate, but it hasn't. I should have listened to the other reviewers who said the same thing.

Got my mom one and she really likes it. I have one myself in front of the sink and it is very well padded.

Awesome mat for medical office staff
This is an amazing mat. For the very short period of time my staff have been using it, they love it. Great quality and it really works. My nurses are on their feet all day along with the physicians and it it making a difference.
