Mousepad Replacement Recommendations

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have an old Steelseries small mousepad and am looking at getting both a larger one and one that isn't as used and feels a lot smoother. I hate the plastic ones if they are anything like the cheapo plastic ones. I am also very uninformed about mousepads so all help is welcome smile.gif

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

So you are looking for a mouse pad with some glide that isn't a hard pad? The cloth pad with the most glide that I have used is the Razer Goliathus Speed edition. That being said, I'm not a mouse pad connoisseur so you may get some better suggestion from others.

IMO, this is what your looking for. It's pretty soft. At least it doesnt feel hard, its maybe not the softest on the market, but soft for sure. BUT its very glidy. With a light flick it will glide all the way across the pad, and the pad itself is almost a foot and half wide, so very room. It's the best mousepad I've used by far.

just a little pricey though, but worth it

I never understood why everyone likes the QCK as I've had every version but the razer goliathus speed is certainly smoother.

Steelseries mouse pads are great.
But the cheapest cloth one is too thin imo.
So get the think one so your wrist won't hurt much.

Seconded.

I have this upgraded from a QCK+ medium pad. The QCK got dirty easy and broke down. The Goliathus seems expensive but it has pleats on the edge so ur pad will stay undamaged. Very good pad. Expensive but good.
