Everglide Titan, well worth it
I know you guys are hard-surface haters, but I'm using an S&S Steelpad here and it's awesome. Even better than the Ratpadz GS it replaced tbh.
im a very happy user of the Razer eXactMat... wouldn't go back to a none metal mat
I have a certain "soft" spot for mouse mats with a nice and comfy memory foam wrist rest. It keeps my hand from being sore after playing for extended periods of time. Its definitly a ton better than resting your wrist against the edge of the table.
This is sorta similar to what I have:
grab a cheap teflon coated baking sheet, if possible one that is already flat, if not you can always cut the edges off if it has some.
ifyou dont spend over £20 it well worth it imo, just try not to be sucked into paying morethan that
I have one of these, a Nova Winner, because it's quite small. It's a bit more reliable than running the mouse across grained wood, but the 'glue' on the back is so strong that I can't take it off or it'll pull all the varnish off
"It's all about opinions, so why bother even asking" Seriously, just go to the store, touch the surfaces and buy which ever you like the most. Sure, some wear faster, some are smoother, but the differences are so small, if you haven't used a mouse pad so far, you won't notice the difference.
Qpad X-TR here. Have also had a fistful of Steelseries, Ulti-mat and other pads. All have worked just fine for me.
I reiterate: The Everglide Titan:
£11.99 free delivery.
ITS MASSIVE, far bigger than any normal person could ever use, but thats the best bit about it, i use 1/4 of it to play games, the other 3/4 is a very good mobile iphone and wallet drop, nice and soft padded super smooth.
You obviously haven't been to inverness before ^_^
You get a choice of either go to pc world (or it's partner shops) and get ripped off, they don't have any out anyway or buy online and pay a good price. I'll have another look when i wake up and make my decision then
Currently I use a gooey HP mat that I got free, only reason I'm using it is because it was free and it's all gooey.
I used to use an old envelope, and that's only because my current desk is too shiny and my mouse spazzes everywhere
I've not noticed any difference going from desk to envelope to mat. But then again, I barely have to move my mouse to cross the screen. The main problem I have is hair and stuff getting trapped in front of the laser
I used to think they were only for old timers. I got a free smooth hard mat from World In conflict and loved it but it was small. I got a x trac ripper XL which was HUGE but too soft, bought a Razer Exact Mat with a control and speed surface with a nice memory foam, Washable wrist wrest and i would never go back to desk only.
My mouse is a Logitech G5 R2
i picked up a mouse mat on ebay that is just as good as my gaming mat and 10% of the price
I bought an Ice Mat (glass) but it doesn't work too well with a laser mouse, optical is fine however.
Another eXact mat user here and wouldn't go back to soft mats ever.
i got an x trac ripper XL off ebay for like $5 a year ago ... but have never gamed on it. it's my work pad ... i also have an allsop? i think ... big pad ... about 12" x 18" ... with the blue waterdrops on it ... that i use at home for gaming. the x trac is about 1.5mm thick ... the allsop is about 3mm thick, but the allsop's foamy bits are a bit firmer.
unfortunately, i tend to chain smoke while gaming, so i end up washing the mat about once a month. the spandex layer is starting to peel off the neoprene around the edges ...
i use a m$ wireless (2.0 i think?) on the desk ... a logitech nano v450 laptop mouse when it's on the tv (longer range than the m$)
I wouldn't be without my IceMat, had it for a few years now and would be mortified if it broke, best pad I've ever used.
+1 for the Razer Destructor. Very nice bit of kit.
Does it make a difference? Probably not if I'm honest, but it looks good!
best one ever. I have the Fnatic edition and it's still clean after 2 years and a half of intensive use. I even put it in the washing machine and it came out perfect
I got a steelseries QCK plaine black A3 size mat i did have it in A4 but it was to small and i have it with a logitech g9 mouse i do well in CSS on the CPC server, anyway its a cheap mat and plus when it wears out and gets grubby i think i will just buy another
