Its nice to have a consistent surface across the board. I opted for a XXL mousepad on my desk because of my limited space (may sound weird but bare with me). My previous smaller mousepad would either have to fall over the edge to not sit under my keyboard or as I would play games for a while it would move on its own and press into my keyboard or even lip under thus throwing off the level of my keyboard. Using an XXL mousepad that literally covers that whole surface entirely keeps things consistent without things moving around or going off level.

Well I just use an artisan zero xsoft under my kb (and incidentally my monitor), but I do that/would use a deskpad (if I had one that I haven't cut in half lul) because my HHKB Pro 2 has no grips on the bottom of it or the stands, so without a sticky/rough surface underneath it, it slides everywhere.

Also sound/vibration dampening.
