I-2 is a glass surface, and in my opinion, not very good as a mousepad. I owned a Icemat before (also a mousepad made of glass) and in theory it sounds cool, but the feel is not great. Plus you can't really move it around so glass mats are stuck where you put them so if you accidentally slide your mouse off the mat, or shift it while gaming, no luck for you.

The S&S is a plastic material, and it's a great pad. Very smooth surface and worth the price. I'm using a Q+ right now and its solid (the version lower then the S&S). I think you will be happy with it if you like smooth gaming surfaces, similar to a wooden table but smoother.

If you want to go cloth, that works as well for people who need more texture for their mouse surfaces. They're harder to clean if you spill on them then plastic. But both get dirty over time and you have to clean them.

Thanks for pointing out the differences, and explaining I'll pull the trigger for the S&S. I got a plastic Dell XPS that came with my old rig and has served me well.

Not interested in cloth they get dirty
