Years ago, I had a keyboard wrist rest that was comfortable but it had some major downsides: a) It was covered in a nylon-type fabric which got stained fairly quickly and was not easy to clean; and b) it was thick, wide and rectangular and it was forever falling off my keyboard tray. I eventually threw it away not because it fell apart or stopped working, but because it LOOKED disgusting and was a nuisance to keep on the keyboard tray.
This 3M gel wrist rest improves on both of those weaknesses: 1) It is leatherette vs. fabric, so any spills can easily be wiped up; and 2) while, like my old one, this rest runs the full length of my keyboard, it is tapered at the ends so that it fits my keyboard tray better. I haven't felt it MOVE much less fall off the keyboard tray. The rest comes with a film across the bottom surface. Once I peeled off the film and placed the rest on my keyboard tray, it has stayed in place. It's not GLUED there--i.e., you can pick it up and move it and it's not going to ruin the surface of your desk or keyboard tray--but whatever the bottom surface is made of seems to help it stay in place. It's also quite heavy so it has a good basis for staying put.
The feel of this wrist rest is comfortable but firm--i.e., it isn't a super squishy gel feel but has just enough give to make it comfortable. It's surface is super soft and smooth--very comfortable as well. There are no protrusions nor any part of the surface that has bothered me--just soft and smooth.
I am really enjoying having a wrist rest for my keyboard again, and would recommend this one to anyone who is looking for a keyboard wrist rest (note that his is a KEYBOARD wrist rest, NOT a mousepad wrist rest).
