Gamers need mousepad opinions! (Deets included)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The main game I play competitively is CoD4 (just so you know that its for FPS). My mouse is the oh so original Razer Deathadder, I believe it's at 3500dpi (haven't changed drivers and i think 3500 is default). My sensitivity ranges between 1 and 2.3.

My options right now are the:
Steelseries:
- QcK+
- Solo
- 4HD
- 9HD
- NP+

Razer:
- Goliathus all sizes

Pretty much anything that can be found at http://www.microcenter.com

Can anybody who has experiences with these give me an opinion? I know that many of the SS mousepads are optimized for the XAI, but I don't have that :/ I need to know what will perform best with my Deathadder and the only pad I've used before is the Goliathus for about 5 minutes.

I doubt many people have experiences with all of the mousepads you listed, so I'll give you my opinion on only one: SS Qck+. I'm using it right now, and I love it. g9x glides effortlessly. Looks a bit dirty from use, but I'm sure it'll clean out. no curling or fraying so far.

I think the better question would have been whether the deathadder works better with plastic or cloth mousepads...
post #6 of 7
It's a matter of personal preference. The differences are likely all in the very minute margins.

In case anybody's wondering, I went for the QcK (standard, + version is ridiculously big). I've heard people complain that the 4HD and 9HD are too smooth and they lose control. I've used cloth pads so I went with the QcK. I think the biggest issue I could get with it is dust which I can wipe away. Also, I don't want my stock skaters from the Deathadder wearing away on the plastic pad, hopefully they're not too damaged that they can't be used with the QcK now.
