We wanted to preserve the look of our Wii Fit, so we purchased the cover to keep it from looking dirty after lots of use. It does keep the board itself clean, but it can be slippery at times, and it tends to wrinkle up as you move.
The silicone cover is what I expected. Actually I was happy with how the cover wraps around the corners for a more secure fit. There are little silicone tabs that lock into holes in the under "frame" that help secure the cover. This is the only negative. They don't stay as tight as I would like. Though it doesn't affect its use since when on the floor the users weight keeps them in.
