I've had a small auto-return cup, the "normal" style, that my 10 year old and I use around the house, but I never cared for just having that piece only, and having to putt across the carpet. So I liked that this gave a better surface to putt over. It is considerably better than just using carpet or hard flooring.
However, that's about where the good things I can say about this ends. It's not very well made. The first real dislike I had was the fake background. It slides into a slot, which would be fine, except they put VELCRO on this. Anyone who knows Velcro knows that it's not something that can "slide" into place. The fasteners start to catch as soon as you get this in place, so you can't just insert it. It would've been MUCH better to just have been held by friction and pressure. You can kind of almost get it in alright if you very carefully pull it as hard against the "front" of the slot as you can to try to keep all the Velcro from attaching, but it's not something that should even be an issue. I ended up just putting it inside a box tipped on its side to catch any balls that would jump the rear ledge when my son gets a little enthusiastic about his swing.
The plastic is some pretty low grade material as well, the kind that cracks pretty easily.
The cord has a pretty average length, so at least it's not too short to reach an outlet somewhere without having this right up against the wall. But I've seen better ball return systems. I thought at first it may just be because I had it in the box so it wasn't quite set up the way it "should" be, but even removing it from there, I encountered many instances of having to scuff my foot along the "green" to wiggle it enough to get the ball to activate the system. Sometimes that wasn't enough and I had to walk up to it and nudge with my foot to get it to return. The return power at least was adequate to get the ball back to me.
The length of the green is good, but I would have preferred something with a little more solid of a base, some heavier rubberized base, so that you could store it rolled up again, but still have it lay flat as soon as you unrolled it. This stuff tends to keep those bends in it slightly when you pull it out to use again. I can see keeping it with the cheaper stuff if they were concerned about weight, but I would've preferred something heavier to lay flat instantly when I want to use it.
All told, I'm just not very impressed with this one other than the putting surface itself once I get it to stay flat.
1.With the one that I have if you don't center your directly into the return the tends waddle going in at the side and it prevents the ball from completely entering and hitting the return button.
2. I've now used it so much that unless the ball enters just right it will simply sit on the chamber and not return.
3. After a couple times of poking the butt end of my putter in there to help the ball return I found out that inside the sensor is just a thin piece of plastic that tends to bend easy and so much so now that it no longer retracts the ball. I've tried twice now to remedy the issue by removing the ball return and tweaking the area where the ball sits to be a bit wider by shaving the plastic. I've also tried to help the return sensor rod which is no bigger in diameter than a tooth pick but it just won't work.
So yah, barely a month and it's dead. Probably not even worth returning this but I'll try and I'll post back with an update on that process.
One thing to remember, due to the incline near the cup, it's easy to "ram in" puts that likely wouldn't fall in the real world. The best puts on this matt are the ones that just barely make it into the cup.
It's just not made to last.

It looks nice, and isn't expensive.
The motor that shoots the ball back to me fried on the first one I got. I sent it back.Read more
