    Best Mouse Pad Had So Far

    Posted

    This mouse pad was much bigger than I thought it'd be (which is a good thing), there's several sizes of this mouse pad available, and the thread count makes the tracking better which improves the mouses accuracy, the mouse glides along it with no problem. It's a very thin and flexible mouse pad. It does get dirty fairly easily, especially with dust, but it takes alot of usage and has so far outlasted any of the previous mouse pad's I've had. When it starts to wear down it's harder to clean as the dirt stays deeper into the surface and it starts to discolor in the high traffic area's of the pad as it starts to wear. And because the mouse pad is slick with the high thread count you have to be careful the mouse doesn't slide off of it. Other's start to fall apart as adhesive layer gets wet during cleaning (thicker soft foam and cloth material mouse pad's) or develop cracks (thinner flexible rubber mouse pad's). It's been out for awhile now and wish it was a few bucks cheaper but compared to the ones I've had before it's worth it and I would definitely recommend this mouse pad.

    Really good medium-sized mousepad

    I heard great things about this mousepad, so i decided to give it a shot. So far it has been really great. Excellent surface, and it barely moves at all with daily usage, even though I'm pretty vigorous when I use my mouse. It took a little while to uncurl completely from being rolled up in the packaging, but it wasn't a problem. I just rolled it the other way for a little while and now it lies perfectly flat on my desk. Keep in mind this is what I would describe as medium-sized, at approximately 10.5"x12.5". If you want something portable to be used on school desks and such, a smaller mousepad would be better. If you need something for hardcore gaming at low sensitivities, you might need bigger. A few of my CSGO friends certainly wouldn't be content with a mousepad this size due to their mouse sensitivity, but it's a perfect size for me.

    Best mousepad I've ever owned

    The SteelSeries QCK, like its Sensei mouse, is the industry standard. Mine has put up with several years of hard use with nothing more required of it than a cleaning once every 2-3 months. The edges remain un-frayed, the logo remains uncracked and complete, and the material provides the same excellent surface it did the day I bought it. Speaking of which, the QCK provides an excellent surface for mouse use. Its surface gives great control without losing too much speed. This makes it great for MOBA games, and I've never felt that it hinders me during forays into FPS gaming. While it can slide occasionally, that is likely the effect of my glasstop desk, more than the bottom of the pad not having any traction. Overall it's a great mousepad at a great price.

    Purchased this mouse pad to upgrade from my previous tiny pad that was probably from 2002. This pad is larger and is comfortable but can be itchy at times. Everyone says it was slip proof and wouldn't slide very much, that is true but also untrue, it stays a lot more than most pads but still moves a little bit. The mouse pad is also very thin. I play games a lot and this pad has definitely helped improve my mouse movements a lot, especially in shooters. If you want to improve your game I'd get a larger pad like this. I may end up getting a much larger pad that covers a big portion of my desk but until then I'm satisfied.

    It's a thin mouse pad and slides on my desk a lot

    I wanted to purchase a mouse pad because I got tired of using my mouse directly on the desk surface. It works as intended, but it is thin. I actually like that it is thin, but it has a tendency to slide around on the desk surface a lot. I do plan to continue using it, but I am searching for something that would not slide as much and stay put. It's a big mouse pad, so do pay attention to the dimensions. Part of it sits under my keyboard, which is a tenkeyless model. My desk has a keyboard tray, so when the keyboard is centered, the mouse pad sits under it by a couple inches. It's not terrible, but it does cause a loss of real estate on the pad for the mouse to travel.

    SteelSeries - QcK Mouse Pad

    Bought two and just simply love them. Nice glide and Tracking ability. The rubber base holds exceptionally well, although, if your surface has any furniture polish - you will experience some slippage unless you clean/remove some of the polish buildup. Some have posted dislikes of the pad becoming dirty - this pad is easy to clean: Dust - I wipe the fabric side against a blanket like surface. Dirt / Light Grime - I hand wash mine in warm water with a mild shampoo, rinse well with warm water and blot excess water with a towel, then allow to dry flat. Hence my (2) purchased. Animal hair LOVES all mice pads, this one is no exception.

    Very Smooth, but Gets Dirty Easily

    This has been my mousepad for my daily home use for over a year now. I have to say that the manufacturing quality of this mousepad is very good, it hasn't worn down like my old one has. The pad itself is very thin, but much larger than a traditional mousepad, giving a great range of very smooth movement for your mouse. The downside is that its black surface has seemed to collect residue from my wrist traveling across it so many times (don't go eew, all humans shed skin, what do you think dust is?) and the very fine texture of the pad itself has made it difficult to clean. Seems to just be a cosmetic issue, and I do use the pad fairly often for gaming and Grad School work.

    Great value

    Recently purchased a Razer Deathadder and once in a while the sensor would freak out. I started researching to see what the situation was about. Some people said it could be a dusty sensor (not possible because it was brand new) and others said it might be due to the surface of the mouse pad. Due to the really high DPI of the mouse any imperfection from the old or damaged mousepad would cause it to behave erratic. Since I bought this I have had no issues with my cursor freaking out. Sure there are better pads (don't know what makes them better), but for my purposes this is great and it fixed my issue with the odd movement..

    It's a mouse pad

    What can I say? It's a mouse pad. It's big - love the size actually! My only, admittedly VERY minor gripe is that since it comes rolled up in a box, well - it kinda still wants to be rolled up. Even sitting on my desk, the edges attempt to curl ever so slightly. When I move it or lift it, it curls. I've tried rolling it up the opposite way for a bit to try to train it not to curl that way, but it didn't work. Overall, since it stays flat when I'm not messing with it, I don't think it detracts from the overall usage or rating, but I do believe that flat packaging would be nice for this product.

    My second QcK

    The Best Buy I visited actually had all of the primary accessory manufacturer's base level mouse pads on hand. The Razer Goliathus seemed too thin but was a couple of bucks cheaper at $7 (for the comparable size version). The Corsair pad actually cost more at around $16 and was the middle of the road in thickness. The QcK from SteelSeries was the thickest pad by far though and only $9. I needed a second pad for my laptop mouse, and opted to stick what what has worked for me especially given the favorable price and thickness comparison.

    If you're going to game, you need the right mouse pad. That blue neoprene one you took from work that has coffee and dirt stains? It's not going to cut it. But this mouse pad will. It won't move or shift on your gaming surface or while you move the mouse, and it is large enough so that you're not constantly picking up the mouse to make sure you still USE the mouse pad. Get this for the gamer in your life. They will be happy you did.

    Just did a review on a simple mouse for gaming and this mouse pad is also perfect for gaming. Full time student who recently got into League for short bursts of playing for fun, I was using a MacBook Pro before and when I got the mouse it would lag and not move nearly as fast as I needed. This mouse pad is so cheap and perfect and simple and for the price you can’t beat it. No mouse lag or catching or anything and it’s great.

    I purchased this product NOT as a mouse pad but for a cushioned pad underneath my 13" macbook pro retina laptop. I wanted something that would protect the bottom of the laptop from scratches when I slide or move it around. Sometimes the feet on the bottom of the laptop wear down and the bottom scraps along the the surface you have it sitting on. It fits perfectly underneath. I guess I could have bought a hard case but this fits the purpose perfectly for me and at a fraction of the price. A great multi purpose product at a great price. I would recommend.

    Had the Razer Goliathus for years and switched to the Steel Series. Man, i thought the razer one was nice but this is just so much smoother. Even though the razer one was $15 more when I got it I can see that I've been dealing with a much lower qualtity product for just the name sake of Razer. This $10 mat is the best value for any tech purchase I've ever made, and I've made alot. I'm debating actually lowering my DPI on my mouse because it is much faster than the other pad, but I really really like that.

    This by far the biggest mouse pad I've ever used. Seems like you'd need to have the tracking speed set really low on your mouse to use this much space. I could've gotten by with a smaller pad because I only ever use a relatively small portion of it at a time. Materials are high quality, but it seems pretty typical of the kind you'll find on most pads with cloth surfaces. Overall very good, but nothing truly special beyond the size of it. Price was very fair for a name-branded item, especially considering the XL size.

    It feels nice, it has alot of space for movements, but some mice just don't work with it. You'll need a fairly good sensor on the mouse in order to use it well, or else the mouse will work some of the time and just stop moving in short bursts. It could also be my mouse, but it's been acting like this since I got this mouse pad. But I will get a new mouse to test it. If I don't redo this review or comment on it (dunno how this site works with stuff like that), then it is in fact the mouse pad that was the problem.

    What can I say? It's a mousepad. It's pretty hard to screw up. I originally bought a TekMat for home as I like having a large mat for my entire desk top. Steelseries large pads aren't as large as the TekMats, but they also are much more work appropriate, which is what I wanted: Something very close to a TekMat while being work appropriate. I've had my TekMat, a Razer Goliathus pad, and now this Steelseries pad. The Steelseries one is the clear winner. It's a shame that I wasn't able to find a full desk mat by them.

    I had been using a small Belkin mousepad with a palm wrest for as long as I can remember but after seeing a few of my friends using large gaming pads I decided there might be something to it. This mousepad works great and covers some serious real estate. Fortunately, if your desk space is limited like mine, it's thin enough that you can rest one side of your keyboard on it and not really notice it being out of level. I also didn't have any issues with it retaining its curl from the box that some others have mentioned.

    This is exactly what I needed. Cheap and readily avaliable. I didn't have time to order one off the Internet and I didn't want to overpay for a pad. It fit my need great at the time. The only problem with it now is it isn't the smoothest track pad I have used. It seems to jump around on fps games sometimes. I am still using it and it is still worth the money I just have found myself wanting to go buy a better one just to assist those long range sniper kills. But for the price I will definitely recommend.

    Very Thin and Won’t Lay Flat

    This is a nice entry level mouse pad. The reason I say this is that it’s very thin and does not lay flat. It came rolled up in a tiny box and when you try to lay it flat it’s impossible. I’ve tried everything to get this to flatten out even putting several heavy books on it for a week but even that doesn’t work. However my wireless gaming mouse works very well on it and responds nicely.
