Steelseries SX - Since none is availible are there alternatives?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I cant seem to find a steel series SX anywhere. Are there any other alternatives? I looked at the Ironclad by Razer but from reading reviews it looks like the build quality is really bad in that it starts peeling after a few weeks use.

Experience i2

glass instead of aluminum, but the feel is very similar, and the tracking performance is actually superior for lower sensitivity gamers, although I never had a problem with either one.

Hows the friction on it? I like pads that the mouse glides easily on.

extremely smooth

The I2 is very similar to the SX in my experience, and both are much smoother than the Destructor or QcK or 9HD

downside to that smoothness is that any dirt/dust/hair will be far more noticeable, so you may find yourself wanting/needing to clean the pad more often, however doing so is extremely easy, as you can just run it under the tap and even use some dish soap for good measure
