These will last you a while, and for new Cricut users, don't forget to search forums and YouTube for tips on using your mat. You can save paper by putting multiple scraps onto it, and planning your layout based on putting each item to cut out in the exact spot you have a particular color of scrap on (this is where the grid lines on the mat and in Cricut Design Space come in handy). You can also turn your mat around and put it in backwards, and there are ways to get lint off your mat, and to re-sticky your not-so-sticky old mats.
Make sure you are using the right grip mat for the job, and for the paper. And if your paper is tearing, don't assume you need a new blade. I did, and I was so mad that I "needed" a new blade when the German carbides are supposed to last so long. Thankfully, before I bought new ones, I did research. I assumed I needed to cut deeper, because the blade was "dull". Nope. Turns out if your cutting depth is too deep for the paper, it will actually tear MORE. Also, more intricate cuts or more fibrous paper may need to be cut multiple times. (Research how to use the custom settings, and when you need multiple cuts.) In addition, temperature and humidity can affect whether the paper tears more easily or not. In my particular case, the construction paper needed a light grip mat, and custom settings. The setting for construction paper wasn't good enough, so I used the construction paper setting, but cut it 3 times (two times wasn't quite enough). Now it works perfectly! There can be a learning curve with the cricut, but YouTube tutorials help a lot, and it's so worth it to educate yourself. A few helpful tips can make for a great Cricut experience.
They don't even send you one that looks like cricut! I tried to use the mat and the green color AND the sticky part comes right up your very first use!!!!! They are garbage!!! DO NOT BUY.
DO NOT BUY!!!! FAKE FAKE FAKE PRODUCT!!!!
Original Review: I'd give these mats a 5-star rating if they didn't smell so horrible (edit: insecticide, like cheap flea collars). Right out of the package, they reek terribly. Next time, I'm going to have to open them outside (on a nice day) and leave them to air out for a few hours so I don't give myself a headache from the smell. Next time will be a while, because these last a lot longer than the other mats I have.
I use these with my Silhouette Cameo. Most of what I do is print & cut, so I don't really even have to cut the mats down to match, although it can help a bit. (You would probably need to cut them down if using to cut something without registration marks.) I've been rotating several mats for some months - 2 of these and about 6 of the Silhouette mats, and these have outlasted the Silhouette mats pretty impressively. I keep the crappy old Silhouette mats for when I'm cutting something really lightweight (regular copy paper) and use these for cardstock.
