Long-time lurker on this thread. I needed a glass mousepad for my 2nd computer (1st still has icemat working great) so I finally purchased the frosted vance industries pad. The pad arrived today and is fantastic. Like the posters before me, the feet came on the frosted side so I first tried the mouse on the clear side and it didn't track with my mouse. I removed the feet and placed them on the clear side, and the frosted side tracks and feels nearly exactly like my icemat. Really the only difference I can tell from my icemat is that the edges are much more rough on this one--not enough to cut or be uncomfortable, but just not round and smooth. Anyway, thanks to OP and everyone for this great find.

What do y'all think about this?
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zeller-26205-2-Piece-Chopping-Board-Worktop-Saver-Set-for-Ceran-Hobs-52x30-cm-/281863456495
It's practically impossible finding a glass cutting board in my country, let alone Europe but i stumbled upon this one and it looks alright, maybe? I have no clue.
That seller do have another model that's somewhat more expensive:

Same model but in white:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Premium-Glass-Chopping-Board-White-Plain-Glass-Design-Large-Kitchen-Worktop-/281863490872


EDIT:
On second thought, i might be able to find a place where i can get one custom made, hopefully somewhat cheap. I have no idea what i should be asking for though?
I figured some of you might know. As the OP, i too am sick of my Heaton XL because of how uneven it's become. I'll be using optical mice exclusively (atm mionix avior, but are in the process of changing).

Too bad for SteelSeries then, lol, because this cutting board will be replacing the iCEMAT.

Yeah it makes sense for them business-wise. What a shame though. I personally didn't like how SteelSeries began selling the iCEMAT under the "SteelSeries" brand, (iCEMAT sounds so much cooler for a product like this), and then they ceased selling it altogether.

I did however buy the black iCEMAT back in the days, like 2002 or so, and it's like brand new today, almost 15 years later (although two of its rubber feet are no longer attached, but I can always buy self-adhesive rubber feet later anyway). Works great with my Logitech Corded Mouse M500, and also my MX1000. Highly recommended to use teflon mouse skates with the iCEMAT, and I'm sure it works just as well on this cutting board. Teflon mouse skates in my experience is the best on frosted glass.

Good to know, I'll try to buy this cutting board later then. Do they ship to Sweden?

Sorry for bumping an old topic. Just bought this but my EC2-A barely tracks on it. In this thread it seemed like both glass cutting boards and the 3310 should be compatible.

I tried both sides and it's sitting on top of my black Glorious XXL. Do I shave off my mouse feet to make the LOD higher if that's the issue? Or should I put some black paper on the other side of it even if the mouse pad is there?

I seriously doubt 3310 can even track on glass.

that looks very different in texture. the original icemats were frosted, acid-etched and had a very fine texture.
if i can find my old icemat then i'll test my FK2 (3310) on it

what exactly do you mean by "barely tracks", is the malfunction speed very low, or does it stop tracking very often..?
post #69 of 111
3310 will not track on that surface properly. Grab a laser mouse :-P
post #70 of 111
i've been using my ZA13 with this glass cutting board for more than 6 months and its been working fine.
3310 DOES track on the surface properly.
