Suggest a large cloth mousepad for me - Page 3

I don't really have a budget so feel free to suggest anything. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Corepad Deskpad.
They have many sizes available, up to 5XL which is 150x75cm.
I myself use a 4XL which is 120x60cm and after using it I cannot stand any other pad that doesn't fill my desk.
The comfort level and the absolute freedom you get when playing lowsens is unbeatable.

Edit: However it is more important to have top-notch surface to get the most of my mouse as I mainly play FPS games.
Describe top-notch surface.
Because imo there is none. It's just tracking compatibility and subjectivity.

Fixed that for you. wink.gif




Seriously, I had them all. QCK+, Heavy, Talent, G-TF Speed and Rough, SS 9HD, Artisan Hayate and Raiden, and then some. But none of them can compare with my Deskpad that covers my whole desk (at least in width, table is 120x80cm).
You can position your mouse arm more centered when gaming and move the keyboard more to the right without it laying 50/50 on pad/desk. And when you're done gaming you move your keyboard back into the perfect middle for ergonomic writing and working.

The Deskpad isn't the last pad I had here for testing, for example I tested the Speed and Rough afterwards. And I sent them back, mainly for the sole reason: not as comfortable and (!) no freedom in positioning your gaming and/or working gear.

And the performance is as good as cloth gets: reliable and smooth. No jitter, not too slippery, nice control.

They often go on sale for half price as well.

How do the Roccat Taito and Zowie G-TF compare to the hayate and talent? There are way too many options to decide on. I'm not sure if I should just choose one with the help of random.org.

They are very very different animals. The Taito is basically the Puretrak Talent without the pattern/color/inconsistency of build. It's very slick and smooth. Great control and very comfortable.

The Zowie pad is basically a hard cloth pad. It's a thin layer of cloth over a flexible plastic backing with a sticky bottom. Some people have problem getting it to stick to their desk, but I've found it to really stick well on my particular desk. I love the pad, personally. It's all black and seems to work well with both optical and laser mice. The only negative I can give it is that it takes a while to flatten out and the texture of the pad can irritate your wrist.

The Zowie pad is basically the same size as the Artisan pads, while the largest Taito is a bit bigger.

Which particular pad are you currently using with your avior 7000? If the roccat taito is really as good as the talent I could get it as I can get it for almost half of the price of the talent.

I have the White Talent and I love it. It's bigger, smoother and faster than the QcK Heavy which I used before. I have not tried the regular Talent but I assume it's the same, just different colors.
post #27 of 30
I rotate between the Hayate, QCK Heavy, and Taito at the moment. Currently favoring the QCK for size and comfort.

I would recommend the Taito. It's a great little pad. I've used it for quite a while and it resists dirt/grime and hasn't frayed. Tracking has stayed consistent. Can't really ask for much more. You just need to try it to see if you like the glide/control. Each of those pads offer a different amount of each.

Just put up a little review of these.

If you're in Europe with a low mouse sens I'd definitely recommend trying one

Thanks for the review. I checked the specifications and noticed something that I didn't earlier:
"- Fully compatible with the Official Overclockers UK Elite Gaming Mug"
"- SLI and Crossfire Compatible (especially with the Official Overclockers UK Elite Gaming Mug)"

Ofcourse after that I had to check the mug out and noticed this:


I laughed a bit and I'm ordering the mug solely for that reason. Might as well order one of the pads at the same time as they aren't that expensive.
