Razer Sphex doesn't stick anymore

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My Sphex doesn't stick anymore to the table.
On my previous table it worked fine, then I moved it to another one (which I cleaned of course) but it never sticked properly. Now it moves around quite frequently.
Is there any way to resolve? The only thing I can think of is using some transparent tape to fix on the corners.
I love my Sphex but this problem is really annoying. mad.gif
By the way I bought it around March, so I think it's still too early to change it.

I bet it's your mouse feet and why aren't you using a mouse pad?

Googlefu GO!

Adheres to any surface
The innovative adhesive used for the Razer Sphex enables you to attach and remove it easily; making it the perfect companion anywhere you go. And don’t worry about it getting dirty, as you can just wash it and it’s going to be like new again.

I disagree on that part. I personally own a Sphex and the main thing that gets dirty is the bottom (since I do take it around places every once in a while). Razer made a big deal when these came out, that you could actually wash the Sphex (water and just a little bit of soap), which I've done multiple times. Each time I wash it, the adhesive becomes sticky again, allowing me to place it in a new position on my desk. Of course I make sure that my desk is clean at that point, too, so it'll stick well.

What the hell does that have to do with anything?

That said, it's one of the ways in which the Sphex degrades over time. You can maybe try putting some two-sided tape on the bottom of it to stick it back down, though as I recall my Sphex started to curl up a bit over time so this might take a lot of tape to get it flat.

Had a Sphex for about 3 days before I gave up on it, if your table is anything other than glass or marble (not sure who games on a marble desk) you're going to have troubles with getting it to stick. My Sphex would constantly get moved around after about a day (on a wooden desk), and it was incredibly annoying. Sad too, considering the surface of the Sphex actually felt pretty decent.

Thanks everyone for the replies. smile.gif
I'll try washing it although I have to say it just feels so wrong. I hope everything goes right. biggrin.gif

Think the worse thing is when it's bent, the surface is now perma bumped in that regino.

Throw it out and buy a real mousepad. I bought one originally to use w/ my DA, it stuck to my wood ikea table fairly well after cleaning the surface w/ light soap and water and drying it.

After 2 months I took it off to dust everything and it literally took off the surface of the table.

Unless your on some form of raw metal or glass, I'd avoid using this at all. So much for not being dangerous to your table.

While some say it doesn't stick, other say it sticks too much... weird.
