I'm looking to get a Logitech G500 mouse for my PC. I just wanted to know if i should pick up a mouse mat - like one of those steel series ones?

They help, but a regular one will suffice.

If it's available in your area the Mionix Sargas and Propus are nice pads for the money. Stuff from SteelSeries would do nicely as well for a little bit more. The G500 can track on desktops but it would feel a lot better on a actual mousing surface.

TBH if you are seriously asking that question then you definitely don't need one.

I've never used one tbf. But I never used to game and I've always used really cheap, crappy mice.

Do you really need/ want the extra stuff on the G500? If not, how about going for the lower priced G400 along with any of the mats listed above?
post #10 of 42
It is not always necessary. The advantages are

-You can pick a surface the sensor in your mouse tracks well on
-Some surfaces are easier on your mouse feet
-You can have one surface and bring it with you for a consistent feel wherever you go (LAN's etc.)
-You are free to choosea surface that provides the ideal combination of grip and glide that you may prefer
-You can cover an uneven desk surface
-Some mouse mats can add to comfort.

For the G500 you should get a hard mousepad.

Personally I would go for the G400 as it
-Has a better sensor
-Is lighter
-Looks better (preference)
-Does not have that wobbly annoying and hard to click scroll wheel
-Has a sensor that is centered instead of in the front
-Has a more even weight distribution
-Tracks well on both cloth and hard surfaces
-Is cheaper

Have a hard time recommending the G500 over the G400.
