New mousepad suggestions

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Ok so I want a new mouse pad, I use my G700 on a table with a cloth on it when gaming and can't stand to not have one. I would like a nice looking one, I got from a trade years ago a ratpadz mouse pad, and hate it with a passion. Its like trying to use my mouse on ice....so I need something that has some friction. Or does it even matter?...I don't know, but why not make a thread anyways. thumb.gif

Just a side point, anyone seen a cheap G700 knock off mouse, or a cheap G700 anywhere.

Cloth, plastic or aluminum?

Well that ratpadz is plastic of some sort, and its way to slick. Honestly I don't care material, currently I am using a super cheap/free mouse pad which is probably 1/3 the thickness of a normal mousepad. So I am open to any suggestions you have.

It comes down to budget and personal preference. Having tried them all, I'm particularly fond of anodized aluminum. How much are you willing to spend on a mouse pad? tongue.gif

I think I like the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826999069 Razer one, any reason why the others would be better?

Something as comparable as the Razer your looking at but less 'splash'. Roccat Taito but only as an aesthetic preference, not that it's any better. Comes in different sizes 3mm & 5mm thickness. Mionix Sargas goes even lower with slim profile 0.008mm thick which feels as hard as your desk but soft as cloth to the touch gliding your mouse. It too comes in variable sizes 320, 400, 900. Again only for less splash.

Large cloth pads usually need to flattened out for about 24 hrs with heavy books on it, that comes rolled up in packaging.

Personally I guess I feel laser sensors respond better on plastic or harder pads over cloth IMO.

Razer has great new hard pads like the Destructor 2. Another alternative is the Mionix Ensis 320 a black brushed aluminum pad that tracks exceptionally well with lasers but only if you don't mind an icy feel on your wrist when you first use it. Darn thing gets very cold. Warms up after some use but don't leave for too long....tongue.gif

One more option to look into would be Steel Series HD two sizes 4HD & 9HD variants. It's not as hard as solid plastic with ever slight flex to it and not plastic but more of a material feel.

Hope I widened your search options. thumb.gif

Yeah I am probably not going to have an aluminum one for that very reason, I don't want something that is cold, I rarely play for long. Being that I am 31, with 4 kids, I never get to sit down for more than an hour of gaming at a time these days. I probably play less than 2 hours of gaming a week max. I am worried about all of these pad, because they seem so happy with the fact that there is little to no friction to the pad. Like I said that ratpadz pad is like trying to use my mouse on ice, and I really find it adverse to what I want. I could care less about the flash, I mean I am going to be using it with a Sager laptop with backlit keys and such. I have never been one for the totally minimalist, or the extreme either. When I build a rig its usually black, with a few led fans in a single color. I don't use cold cathodes, or sleeving...does that give you any insight into what I like lol?

If you want a rougher surface go for the Steelseries NP+, it's plain black and has more friction than the Qck+. The glide is still extremely good imo, but I get better control with it.
