Looking to buy a mouse/mousepad? Read this first. - Page 50  

post #491 of 510
i ended up liking the GP3 more than my other plastic pads, including the Qpad HeatoN.
it has slightly more friction and more stopping power, making it just that bit easier to control my mouse.
but this also means a difference in feel / sound, which you may or may not like. it doesn't bother me one bit, but i can imagine some people might dislike it..

depending on its durability, it was definitely worth the money for me. my Qpad was starting to get really worn, so i'm happy to have found a replacement.

Great to hear, but since the surface is so hard the glide should be pretty smooth/quick compared to traditional soft cloth, no? I'm fairly positive that the harder a pad is the faster it glides. I plan to raise my sensitivity when I get it and just re-learn muscle memory.. I'll be better off that way anyway since I've been handicapping myself with low sens for the past several years

yup, it's a lot smoother than cloth. but not as smooth as the Qpad.
my only gripe is that the S3688 does not like it, but old sensors are for noobs anyway.
and my fear is that it(the center) won't last very long. we'll see!

edit: decided to get an F-30R-17 as well. i have limited experience with amazon.com so i really hope it's the right pad, and NIB as described. i (much) prefer the way ebay works, where sellers can upload pictures of whatever they're selling so that you can actually see what it is you'd be receiving.

Well as long as the mousepad can last a full year of heavy usage that should be good, I'm still waiting for the damn thing to ship though man it's annoying mad.gif

Yeah you youngster's really do rough things to your mouse pads. Case in point here, my own nephew got spotted playing "Battleborn"and he shocked me with his almost epileptic fits on the mouse pad shaking his mouse about like it's a lit firecracker.

Now I understand what you crazies do in your bedrooms late at night and it's really surprising to see that. Imagine at that age I actually went out with Girls and Partied till morning but you guys stay connected to your PCs playing these type of games with such passion and interest.

Maybe you lot should play on Stainless Steel Mouse Pads because frankly nothing better than hosing down your rooms with high pressure water, best cleans all the mess I have seen. Far worse than any Monkey Bukkake Session doh.gif .

I wouldn't be surprised if my mouse has done a marathon on my mousepad, aka 26 miles of motion


edit: I was wrong, appears the mousepad was shipped and is close to arriving. I had to contact the website because their automated e-mail tracking isn't working atm or something. So now I'm happy again!

Wow this thing is awesome, it's actually not that small. Would be cool if it was bigger but other than that pretty sweet. The box it was shipped it was skimpy (not the package itself, but the shipping container) fortunately it wasn't damaged

Do these things lose glide or does only the mouse feet wear and those need to be replaced? It's like a weird controllable fast glide and the surface seems very solid and won't budge at all. Probably more consistent than any cloth pad due to the hardness.. this might actually replace my gtfx

edit: Also do you need to clean the surface? I recall when I had a plastic mousepad years ago it would get little black spots (teflon?) on it that had to be scrapped off.. will this get the same thing? I have no idea what the surface is made of

i guess they cheaped out on the shipping box for intercontinental shipping. my pad shipped in a box that was 10 times too big, quite unnecessary..
and uh, does your pad smell? because mine has a very strong smell. nothing i can't handle, but damn, it's really strong biggrin.gif

it probably won't have an impact on tracking, but yeah it's definitely gonna eat mouse feet over time. i don't really bother with any "serious cleaning" though, i just use warm water and a piece of microfiber cloth.

only time will tell how durable it is. most hard pads don't actually last very long from what i've read. the rough func pads seem to be a bunch of very few exceptions.
if the texture has barely changed after 6 months of use then i would definitely consider its durability above-average. i don't use mine exclusively though, so it'll take longer before i start seeing wear on mine..


glad you like it though! i feared that i hyped up a product that would make you feel disappointed biggrin.gif

Well I bought it before you wrote about it haha

No mine has no smell, I bought from a reseller and honestly the way they shipped it is unacceptable, these things need to be shipped in a fragile do not bend package

Seems like this thing will be consistent glide wise cause the way it scratched the mouse feet means it's the stronger surface. Personally I really like it. It's a frictionless glide but it has feedback and I guess that's what makes it feel easy to stop with

I am in for a new mouse pad - have narrowed it down to the CM Swift RX and the Glorious (will probably go for the desk mat size) as I am not a fan of Razer or Zowie.
Some feedback which one of the two to be your preferred choice would be beneficial making the final decision!
