I've had mine for about five years, never a problem -- except that it has been about four years since it self-inflated, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. Still, blowing it up takes only about a minute.
My ultimate backpacking solution is a 2/3 length closed cell foam pad plus my Thermarest on top. Toasty warm, great comfort, and minimal weight, for the cost (okay, I'm still salivating over the NeoRest, but can't see spending the dough when I've got a good solution already).
BTW, if you're looking for the ultimate car-camping solution, nothing beats the REI 3.5 Camp Bed. Way too heavy and big for backpacking, but more comfy than a decent futon bed.

Used on week-long canoe trip. Very comfortable. It packs very light and small but is long unless folded length-wise before rolling.
The self-inflation is noticeably weaker if it's been rolled up for more than a day, but that's hardly an issue since manual inflation takes only a minute and I prefer a firmer pad anyways.
The width is a bit short, making turning on the side a bit difficult but all in all this is a superbly balanced pad.

I've owned several Therm-A-Rest products over the years. I've also sacrificed a good night's sleep in the name of "ultralight." However, a good night's sleep is priceless on a multi-day trek. The Therm-A-Rest Trail Lite is hands-down the best product they have made in years. Yeah, it may weigh a few more ounces then the ProLite, but it is four-season warm and very comfortable for the weight. Besides, a few ounces is worth all of that extra energy you will gain from a good night's sleep. Just think, this would have been consideded "ultralight" just a few years ago! I'm very happy with this product, and you can't beat the price .

This is such a nice pad! It is cheaper than the Prolites and is all you could ever want. It has a fabric that is tough and prevents the sleeping bag from falling off the pad while you're sleeping. It doesn't self inflate, so that is a little annoying, has plenty of cushion.
Overall a great pad!

It deflated overnight during a camping trip. That's why I give it a 0.
Got another one, hope it works.

Super comfortable. Super light. Super durable. Packs down "pretty" small but not the smallest.
Highly recommend for any type of overnight from one night to a hundred.
