      The middle ground between foam & gaming mouse pad.

      This item was a compromise for me as I recently acquired the high-end gaming mouse from Alienware and wanted something better than a cheap foam mouse pad or worse, the desktop to use with it, but wasn't willing to shell out $50 or more for a mouse pad that lights up (gaming mouse pad). Surprisingly, this item worked well. It has two options for usable surfaces and the non-slip feet are well designed and placed. PROS - Economical alternative to the more expensive gaming mouse pads - Larger surface area than traditional mouse pads allow for a broader range of movement - Two-sided allow for more or less resistance based on your preference for your mouse - The non-slip feet, while not fully non-slip, work well, and while they seem to be in the way, are actually well placed and effective. - Extremely low-profile - Nice look with the metal and black contrast, fits well with a regular computer for work or a gaming system's overall look. - Has a unique design with cutouts for various placement and personal preference for use. CONS - It still seems a little expensive for what it is. If the price were to drop another $5, the price point would fit just about right for the item. - It can still move around if you are an aggressive gamer which could be problematic in key moments of a game.

      Works great with Apple Magic Mouse 2

      Previously, the glide strips bottom of my Apple Magic Mouse 2 would quickly become coated with a film from my desk's work surface, causing resistance to movement across that surface. As a result, I was cleaning those glides daily. (Cleaning the desk surface itself made no difference.) A fabric mouse pad I first tried also offered resistance to movement. This Insignia product has a textured yet hard surface that the Apple mouse glides across surprisingly well, with no contamination buildup on those glides. I used the "speed surface" side, which has only a slight texture, for the first few weeks . . . it worked OK. I then flipped it over with the "control surface" side (which has a coarser texture) facing up, and WOW, its almost like the Apple mouse is gliding across a sheet of ice, and with great cursor tracking. I do not game on my computer, but for my purposes, this Insignia Gaming Mouse Pad is a great match to the Apple Magic Mouse 2.

      I mean it works, but it's a waste of money

      this mousepad is essentially a glorified sheet of aluminum with textured paint on each side, the "speed" and "control" sides do feel different but they don't seem to affect the mouse movement in any way, other than the control side feeling awful to use, like sandpaper. I knew this product was gimmicky when I got it but I purchased it in store because it appeared to be much bigger than a standard mousepad in the box that it was in, and that's what I wanted it for, but it was not the case, a large amount of the box was empty. it's only slightly larger than a standard mousepad but the pointless shape and rubber feet cut off some of that usable space. If this product was 5$ or so I would recommend it, but it's nowhere near worth 20$

      Overall, good, but some setbacks

      The speed surface of this mouse mat is quite good; control surface on the opposite side - not so much. My mouse doesn't even recognize the control surface as an actual surface at all...the cursor just kinda jumps around randomly when I try to use it. Fortunately, I do not need the control surface,, and the speed surface works fine for my tastes. It is a shame that both sides aren't equally good, however, because the price is quite high for what it actually is. Another little niggle is the rubber pads on both sides - these do not work well if you use it as a mobile setup, because the pads quite often rub against your other gear, like a laptop, or a cooler, and risk of pads being removed are quite high. Still, for my use, it has been a good investment over standard flexible mouse pads that are on offer.

      I love this product. It is more than just a mouse pad. It has a lot of real estate which helps with the 27” screen on my iMac. Smaller mouse pads only left me with the option to speed up the mouse. This pad allows me greater control without having to tweak my mouse settings to the point it alters my comfort zone with everyday use. The price was very reasonable, and you have two different options on speed of the mouse travel based on which side of the pad you are using as well. It has a surface that does not feel like the mouse is being dragged through the mud. Very fast, responsive, stylish, and functional for gaming or everyday use!

      Awesome mouse pad

      This has been the greatest mouse pad I've ever owned. That may sound silly, but the fact is that many mouse pads simply don't track well with some optical mice (or vice versa, I suppose). This has two surfaces: a textured side, which allows for more controlled movement, and a smooth side that works well for speed. I personally only use the textured side, and love it. The most important thing, though, is that this is a durable hard pad that offers versatility in where I can use my mouse. No more pants-leg tracking for me while traveling! There are also rubber "feet" on the corners of the pad that prevent it from sliding around on smooth surfaces (though mine have started to shift somewhat, they are still attached). Love it!

      Gaming mouse pad for instant gratification

      I bought this mouse pad, since it's available at my local Best Buy stores. I'm not sure if being in Alaska accounts for having less of a selection or the demographic just isn't here, but it's the only hard mouse pad I found at Best Buy. That being said, it's great for what it is, albeit, a bit on the spendier side. It's a slab of what I assume is aluminum, covered in textured plastic on each side. One is smooth, the other is a bit rough. I paid for convenience, as I didn't want to wait for a gaming mouse pad to come through the mail. It works really well!

      Finally a mousepad to end all mousepads

      With the varying kind of mice available and all the varying work surfaces it was difficult to find a consistent performance. Traditional mousepads would fray and collect lint/dust/stains. Using the mouse directly on the desk surface sometimes caused unpredictable behavior. This pad gives two options for surface texture. It never moves/slides, doesn't scratch or fray and is easy to clean. It comes in a very handy shape to fit next to the keyboard and has convenient rubber bumpers on the corner to keep it from sliding or scratching finished work surfaces. Excellent and simple product. Great value.
