Best small mousepad for a g500?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Basically the title, I don't need a large pad as I spend most of my time with the DPI on 4800, and a 9"x6" or smaller pad would be perfect as my desk has limited space, and with higher resolutions I don't typically move the mouse more than 2" in any direction. It'd be preferable to not go over ~$20 for a mouse pad.

I've heard that cloth pads don't play nice with the g500? Anyone have any ideas?

Whoever told you the G500 doesn't work with cloth pads is an idiot.

Whoever thinks the sensor dosen't track irregularly on cloth is an even bigger idiot.

Whether it effects the user is up to their playing style.

not super cheap but good, because its a hard pad with speed and control side.

hard pads are the only ones that work well with the G500 sensor.

Got me one of these C4s a while back off the recommendation of a clan member.Couldn't be happier.There are several offers,I got the C4Ngen which is their surface with some cushion under for comfort.They also just have the surface with an adhesive back to stick on whatever you want and surface with black rubber grip back.

Medium slickness , not too slick but slick enough.I use it for Black Ops.

Using it with my Mionix Naos 5000.

They sell the blemished pads,the C4Ngen cushion around 7 x 8 for $8.00.

Wow, nice find. I just ordered [ame="http://www.amazon.com/CS-Hyde-C4-NGen04-Landing-Mousepad/dp/B003DZ16WU"]Amazon.com: CS Hyde C4-NGen04 Landing Strip Mousepad with Gear, Copper Color, 8" x 10": Industrial & Scientific[/ame] since despite not being black, it's a better deal getting the mouse accessories included through amazon.

I've been using no mousepad (cherry-wood desk), so this should be a huge improvement. The fact that it's so thin negates the fact that it's larger than I was looking, as it'll just go underneath my cable anchor and keyboard.

Appreciate the advice, +rep.

I use a cloth pad with no problems on my g500 mouse. I picked up this mouse pad and cut it in half 12.99 for two mouse pad's, I have always used el cheapo mouse pads or what ever I could find, I feel in love with this, feels great with the g500, and its easy to keep dust/lint off of it too. I have not noticed any problems with fraying like some have reported and I use the daylights out of my computer:)

Whoever told you the G500 doesn't work with cloth pads is an idiot.

I did actually do some testing with this. I tried the deathadder V1 and G500 on a steelseries qck with software pos. acceleration tuned off, and did notice negative acceleration on the G500. I tried the same mice on a razer sphex and the issue wasnt there.

I think the basic thing to understand here is that not everyone will get the negative or random acceleration issue depending on how you use your mouse. For example, if you use a high sensitivity the problem may not be noticeable or not even there. The problem is most pronounced for fast swipes over relatively large distances. Needless to say, not everyone is going to experience this. And even those who do, it will probably not be frequent (for example, not when aiming in an FPS, but only when turning around 180 degrees fast).

So while you may not notice or never even encounter the issue, you shouldn't just come out and say its not there without at least some testing. Anyone who tries can reproduce the problem quite easily.

I use a razer sphex with the G500. Wrote a review so if you dont mind me doing some selfpromotion of my own topic, it may help you:

LOL at you thinking an IME 3.0 is better than a Logitech G500 or a DeathAdder.
