My new version of the G-SR just arrived, its the exact same except for the edges. Same foam base, same surface material, basically same pad with stitched edges...
So I can confirm (as I was assuming) that Ino.'s review of the revised GS-R was spot on.

BenQ took over and messes up with their rendition of the Zowie mice line but at least they realized it failed and recalled them.

Hopefully they can see the error in their ways in this mouse pad rendition and return the G-SR without darn embroidered edges and original top. All we ever wanted was an all black G-SR in the first place and it would have been a hit IMO.

Edges on the original G-SR did not fray for me and it's not an issue yet but the trade off is you never heard of any laying flat issues until BenQ revised it with embroidered edges. The embroidered edges allows the pad some movement back and forth on desk with vigorous play. I've been reading and seeing it's due to losing full contact with desktop from the stitches.

It's a QCK+ killer for me when I just want a low profile mat.

Edges on my old G-SR never frayed as well. The new G-SR pad moves exactly the same amount as the old one, but I can see people experiencing this issue during the first day or two when the pad is still a bit curled from the box. After one day in use my new G-SR is as flat as a pancake biggrin.gif
And as Ino mentioned in his review the stitched edges are
Quote:
very smooth and actually bother my arm less than the sometimes sharper edges of unstitched pads
And I can confirm that as well.

Do you own the new G-SR or are you basing the above from other peoples comments?

You were lucky, I just simply applied some double sided tape on the back and it stayed flat on the surface PLUS it never moves without me peeling it away from the desk top thumb.gif .
