Hello every body
Can anybody recommend me a good mouse mat for around 15-20 pounds?
The Razer Sphex is pretty good and cheap. Have heard good things about the Roccat Sota too but haven't used one.
I use the QPAD XT-R (recommended by Custom PC about 1~2 years ago), and absolutely love it
I Have an Exactmat with the wrist rest, both ate £29 I think Very good mat and the wrist rest really helps for those long gaming sessions.
The mat with the smoothest surface and lowest static friction is definitely the Icemat 2 or now called the SteelSeries I2. The surface is glass so it lasts. A bit expensive though, but I would say it is worth it.
I'd love to recommend the Steelseries SX - unfortunately it's more like £30 than £20 but it is one of the best on the market.
I can't recommend the Steelseries SP enough - the pattern may not be to your liking or the slightly rough texture but it works beautifully and comes in at £20-25.
Not too knowledgeable when it comes to mouse mats, but I have been using a steel Allsop mat for the past 7 years which I originally bought from PC World for £16. Excellent for gaming, works with all mice I've tested and easy to clean. Believe Icemat also used to do some good ones, though how good they are now I cannot say.
Razer Goliathus is a good mouse mat which I can vouch for.
Thanks for all the replies people.
I have decided to go for the Razer Sphex as its only 12 euro from ebay
I use a Roccat sense, which retails under £15, with a deathadder and find it a great surface, though not one for people who don't like cloth mats. I find its a great smooth surface which is also comfortable for the wrist and it's worn well.
I have noticed a lot of cloth mouse pads are quite the same. I swear my sister's allsop mouse pad for almost no money at all has the exact same surface as some of the razer and steel series cloth mats.
My old cheap mouse mat from Game had served my MX1000 well for years but wouldn't work properly with my Razer Mamba (it would occasionally jump vertically and, in game, I'd be left looking at the ground or sky!).
Ended up replacing it with a Razer Vespula mouse mat - overpriced, like their mice, but it does the job really well and has a built in wrist rest to avoid RSI pain!
Thanks for all the answers i will probally go for the Roccat sense mouse mat now.as it is in my usual retailer for 20 euro.
I'd suggest the Sphex but I've got two dents in it now and when I tried removing it from my desk half of it stayed suck on the desk and now got patches through it.
did you stick it to the desk?
