Looks great and does what it's supposed to do
Good: Looks great, feels sturdy, and has held up for a month so far. There is just enough friction so that it does not slip on hardwood floors.
Constructive criticism: I am unable to test on a rug, but I imagine it would slip too easily. I wish it were wider. My feet consistently hang off the on the very outer, rounded edges. It is expensive compared to competitors. I believe most of this additional cost is style and the Humanscale brand name. If my desk wasn't open and the foot rest wasn't very visible, I'm not sure I could justify the additional cost.
