    Holy hugeness - how big is that thing?

    As an aside, is that Zelda: LTTP in the SNES? And does it still work?

    I had a pair of jeans that didn't fit me, so i cut out a part of the legs then turned it inside out, and put it on top of a piece of rubber. The mouse rolls smoothly over the jeans but doesn't glide if i let go of the mouse. I recommend it to everyone!

    CorePad XXXL, link got it not to improve any performance but to keep the desk clean and provide a huge surface that the mouse could use without falling off it or scratching up the desk. Its is also big enough that the entire keyboard fits on it so i don't have to deal with the rocking issues that i had before because 1/2 the keyboard was on the mat and 1/2 was not.

    I read that in cm first and thought it was just slightly larger than average, then it hit me

    tell me this is a typo, for what reason could one possibly need a mouse pad that's 3 feet wide!

    My mouse sits in around a 4x4" square in the middle of the pad, and can traverse over 4000px of horizontal resolution without straying from that patch :eyebrow:

    Same here. I got it because i was tires of the mouse "sticking" to the mouse mat making it inaccurate when editing pictures. (no matter how much i cleaned the pad and mouse) I also had some teflon tape which made it a tad better, but it came loose, and i can't find the rest of it :( . I like having my mouse at high sensitivity, so i use maybe 1/3 of the pad for mousing.

    On laptop i use touch pad of course.

    At work i use some plastic mouse mat i got from a co-worker. (plastic thing with a calender and some advertisement for he's dads company.) It's pretty nice :)

    Bareback for me my semi-cheap MS comfort 3000 seems to be happy on any surface I give it.

    The only reason for a mat as I see it is for mouse ball grip or to improve cheap mice's optical scanning. I haven't seen a ball mouse for sale for ages and I'd bet if they are still for sale the cost would be similar to a cheap optical mouse. It won't be too long before even cheap mice have lasers instead of LEDs then the need for a mouse mat will be pretty much nil.

    Demand will be for decorative mats, for people with glass computer desks or gamers who feel they need optical enhanced mats. Oh and of course those mats where the wrist rest are the lady's boobies :naughty::lol:

    So isn't it more of a "Keyboard-Monitor-Mouse" pad?

    Mouse pads are for sissies ;)
