Might lower it a little more. Currently using it with my old Razer Xact Mat but will purchase a new one tomorrow or monday depending on which i get.

The one thing i've noticed is there is a small imperfection in the lighting in the right hand light bar, almost like a small slit in the plastic , anyone else's the same? It's a little annoying knowing its there if its not supposed to be, as shown in this picture its quite obvious to see.



If its not supposed to be there i might take it back and swap it for another?

Not supposed to be there, especially that visible. RMA.

Thank you for the response. smile.gif

Can you or any one else confirm if its cold to the touch as other aluminum pads? Perhaps a bit less or maybe not at all?

The aluminum edge is as cold to the touch as you are used to from other aluminum pads.
The plastic feels a little warmer (but still cold).

Sorry to hear about that LED flaw but I'd RMA it as suggested. Time to break out the back up and call Roccat. I'd be interested in knowing how your RMA process goes with Roccat. Keep the club posted if you do. smile.gif

Update: Incoming Roccat Savu / Sota combo to replace my work mouse / back up gaming mouse. biggrin.gif

I'm taking it back to the store mate for an exchange, i only bought it yesterday. No need to go back to the manufacture. Thank-you to all for confirming its a problem with mine and not all XTD's are like this.

Got my replacement, the lighting on this one is better, there's still imperfections on the same side though, but this time you cant see them unless you look at a certain angle and they are only visable looking at it from the right hand side which you don't see in use atall thumb.gif Think i can live with it, its nothing like the last one. Strange though as this one came from the same chain of shops but a different store! Maybe its a quality problem from Roccat. Maybe i'm being picky though!

Comparison:



Side on looks fine:



Look slightly further down across the mouse its visable:





Normal use you cant see it.

I looked at the Taito mat as the store had it in stock, it looked good i like the fact its plain and simple but i have had a solid aluminum mat for years now and not sure if i'll adjust back to a soft mat. The Alumic has a very bright in your face design on one side and a massive logo on the other, that's the only thing putting me off it. Im guessing they don't make a plain black solid mat with a blue logo?

I'd say if at all it may be just a very minor flaw in the LED strip but that's nothing major. Personally IMO I wouldn't factor it into being a CON to not get the XTD for anyone reading. I'd put most of the weight in the actual performance and package when deciding.

Seems it's not uncommon for a multi-color LED mouse to have one thing or another that's imperfect in some way as I'm seeing it's not singular. Why some people just prefer straight mice without the bling. Not me, I like the pretty colors, despite a minor color or LED flaw. tongue.gif. To each his own. smile.gif Glad to hear you've already replaced it and were within your 30 day warranty. thumb.gif
