Style Name: Mat Verified Purchase
If possible, I would RATE THIS ITEM 2.5 STARS

The "StarTech M3013 24x26 Desktop Anti-Static Mat" by Star Tech arrived as a generic product and as of 16 Mar 2010, unlike what is being displayed and advertised on Amazon (see photo). The mat, out of the Amazon box, was packaged in a crude plastic wrap (see photo) with no specific manufacturer's name or users guide. A paper sticker on the plastic wrap says "Made in Taiwan", but no manufacturer or makers mark is on the product, making this generic electrical mat untraceable.

With traceability of the product not possible, the electrical properties of the mat remain a relative unknown. As an electrical lab product, in it's current form, this item cannot be used as an anti-static/ESD device for or on any program that requires product traceability and documented electrical properties such as in an ISO, MIL, FED, ASTM, ASE, ESD or level 4/class 100K Cleanroom and or higher lab space.

Using a Fluke 187 DVM, the mat measures infinite ohms and non conductive. The supplied coiled 1M ohm snap on alligator clip measured 0.9998M ohm (see photo). This snap on 1M ohm conductor is intended to be attached to a person and not between the mat and the hardware. The mat should be connected to earth ground or placed on a grounded surface. Given the supplied hardware, mat and coiled 1M ohm clip, the end user will be inclined to configure this product incorrectly.

With the supplied coiled 1M ohm conductor snapped to the mat and alligator clip attached to the hardware placed on the mat, the mat may not be at zero potential and earth ground, but at best, sitting on a floating ground or worse, at a high potential.

I bought this mat for my electronic hobby work. It is large; easy to use and inexpensive. It does the job I want it to do which is to protect my components from damage due to static electricity. Their customer support is wonderful.

I have read the complaints from other reviewers and decided to share my views. This is not an expensive professional item. It is ~26 $ including shipping. For this price it is more than good enough. If you are working with ultra expensive and sensitive items then spend more money and get a professional item! My only complaint is the lack of good documentation. The solution for me was to pick up the phone and call StarTech.com. Their support is available until 11 pm EST. I phoned them around 8 pm last night. Right away a representative picked up the phone. He was obviously familiar with the product and answered all my questions.

I will write them here for other users

Directions:

1) The mat should be put black side down and white side up.
2) The wire with the alligator clip goes between mat and ground. This is a ground and not your wrist.
3) You should use a separate wrist band and ground yourself. You need one wrist band per person.

Another person complained it melts if touched by a soldering iron. All I say is the mat is made of rubber and of course it melts. Please be careful. I figure with normal use it will take a few years before it gets so many melted spots to need replacement. Then I will spend 26 $ more and get another one. Just like I replace my iron tips and other things which wear out. My overall advice is if you use this correctly and don't expect the impossible you will be happy with it.

As an EE who has undergone corporate ESD training, these reviews make me cringe. For those less experienced, Here are some facts about anti-static mats.
First of all, Anti-Static mats are not conductive, they are static dissipative. There is a difference. If we wanted a conductive surface, we would use a sheet of metal, or a conductive coating.

Let me emphasize: this is an Anti-Static mat, not a sheet of metal.

When measuring this device with a multi meter, what you should see is a resistance about 1M ohm between the clip and ground.
If you want to [informally] verify it's operation, do the following:
1) Properly ground the mat (water pipes, gas lines, etc)
2) Shuffle around on the carpet wearing socks
3) Hold your hand on the mat while it is grounded. If the voltage rises above zero [measure on the snap at the back of the mat], it is not effective.

When using this device, you also need to wear an anti-static wrist strap.
This strap does not snap to the mat!
Both the mat, and the strap need to be tied to earth ground. Each of these will have a resistor approximately 1M ohm or larger

This is not a professional-grade mat, but it works. Again, don't expect this mat to be conductive when measured.

I, like another reviewer here, also live in a very dry region. I am subject to static discharges year round. Using this mat made no difference in the amount or severity of discharges. To make sure the mat was grounded I first confirmed I had an outlet with a proper ground. (There is a device for doing this) I then connected the mat to the ground of the outlet. Even with this confirmed grounding there was no change in static discharges.
