The silicone board is surprisingly 1/3 heavier than my current vinyl board - 333g vs 215g. The finish is a matte finish and there is NO shine to the surface at all, something desirable in a chess board. I find as the video demonstrates, the pieces do not slide, but grip to the board. It is significantly harder to knock the pieces over. The 1.1 mm thickness is thick enough for the board to be perceived as being durable and sturdy.
It does all as advertised. The color seems integral to the board. It will stay flat in all conditions. Pieces sit fine on a (short pile) carpeted surface. Probably the main advantage is that the board does NOT need to be rolled up. One can scrunch it up in a random ball in a backpack and pull it out without ANY wrinkling, so chess bags are no longer necessary if one doesn't like the look -- (daughter doesn't, and she'd rather use a backpack than use a chess bag, anyday!)
UPDATE - I have played a few rated tournament games on the board and found it to be generally acceptable. Both players will end up picking up annoying hair and any debris which has a tendency to stick on the board. If one cleans the board well before a game, this aspect of use can be minimized.

Very good-looking chess board, which is very portable and meets tournament requirements. Recommend it to new or seasoned chess players.Published 12 months ago by Mary
I like the durability and flexibility of the chess board. I do not like the way the board is printed at a slight angle on the square. Read morePublished on July 5, 2014 by Amazon Customer
It lies flat; it is light and thin; but it seems to attract dust particles , which stick to it and are not removed effortlessly.Published on January 10, 2013 by Erika M.
