Smoothest Mouse Pad? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Sorry to interrupt, but is the I2 still produced?

I can't find a German online shop that has them in stock. There are two, but one says "pre order now", the other says "order on demand".

The German Steelseries Online Shop doesn't even list them at all.

The Razer Scarab is surprisingly smooth.
Didn't think much of it at first until I came across it at a computer store.
It's by far the smoothest mouse mat I've ever tried and ended up buying one there and then smile.gif

I cannot stand cloth pads, but I love the level of comfort they provide; I also love the way a mouse glides on smooth glass. I came to somewhat of a compromise, the elevation difference between a mousepad on a mousepad on my desk and a keyboard on my desk would bother me for sure, so I purchased a Razer Goliathus extended speed and put my Topre Realforce 87U and Steelseries experience I-2 on top of it. Could not be happier. I thought of using maybe some sort of fabric wrist wrest or something but figured that would likely limit my movement too much. What the user above says is 110% true. I originally had a Steelseries experience I-1 which I used for about 4 years straight, keeping the surface clean is key. I experimented with different cleaners and found that you can tweak the feel of the pad a little bit that way as well - For example, pledge leave the surface with a lot less friction and leads to quicker slicker movements where Windex leaves the pad feeling like new. Eventually my I-1 did break but it was more due to an accident than to the construction of the pad or durability of glass. Be careful what kind of solvents you use to clean the bottom - if any, wiping it clean with warm mildly soaped water is my recommendation - this leaves the grippers grippy, and prevents delamination of the glass surface (My I-1 was delaminated in several small spots due to more aggressive cleaners) To put things in perspective, basically after four years of wear, and use of some aggressive chemical solutions only two spots about the size of a dime had delaminated, and these were easily filled in with a Sharpie. The surface of the pad was still like new, and the final break was caused by dropping a wrench onto the pad whilst not paying attention to what I was doing. I will be moving on to a larger desk so that I don't have to share my gameplay area with my work/build space. (my desk is just as wide as the Goliathus extended speed)


A quick note, the Goliathus speed is almost as smooth as my glass pad, though it feels a bit more rough in texture. I did use it for a while waiting for the I-2 to come in and wasn't too bothered by it, I still hated some aspects of it, for example the mouse I use (Razer Naga) is perhaps too sensitive for the mousepad. For example, at a normal listening level playing any type of music with any sort of bass while holding the mouse in claw grip my cursor would jump about a quarter to half inch across my 24" Display (~30-100 pixels) Note this is WHILE HOLDING THE MOUSE. The only way to prevent this behavior was to place a large amount of pressure on the mouse in palm grip. Without holding the mouse it would just drift all around the screen 3-6 inches at a time.

I was in the same boat as you a couple months ago, after doing a lot of research I found thisto be the most comfortable/precise mousepad.

@Reflux
Because of smoothness and speed.

@Xaero
sounds good.
But still, I have no option to buy it in Germany I think.

You can of course give notebooksbilliger an email/call and ask, in my experience they are one of the rare shops where you cang et lucky and get a capable human on the phone.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to get some new mouse feet for my 2 year old G9X and test an I-2 again. I'll also try to test some of the pads mentioned here if I can get my hands on them.
